Course The Wheel of the Twelve Kālīs Overview

Welcome to the Anuttara Trika Kula Home Study Program advanced level course on The Wheel of the Twelve Kālīs.

This advanced practice-based workshop presents never-before translated teachings from Chapter 4 of the great 11thC. Trika Shaiva masterwork, Tantrāloka of Abhinavagupta. The immersive program, which was originally presented in San Francisco, CA, over five days in August 2014, presents the texts, explication, and practices offered by Abhinavagupta to experience the highest levels of inner Kaula union and the pure energies of supreme perception known as the Wheel of the Twelve Kālīs.

This course is appropriate for students who have been following the Tantrāloka Home Study courses for Chapter 1, 2, and 3. It may be taken as an independent course, recommended for students who have studied Kashmir Shaivism in depth and are interested in the Krama tradition as reformulated by Abhinavagupta.

  • Facebook Support Group: Once you have registered for the course and downloaded the materials, you will be added to a private Facebook “Tantrāloka Home Study Support” group.

This group is meant to be a nurturing, safe, uplifting and stimulating space for seekers of all levels and backgrounds who are sharing in the course to support and learn from each other. Please keep posts positive and open-hearted.

For more advanced intellectual or content-related matters, we will forward your question to Dr. Dyckzowski to respond to you directly.
