about GD

Writing ‘About GD’ is like writing about evaporating water.

Every few months, I sense that there is less of him around, as his belief systems and self-definitions keep on evaporating. What remains is less and less of a ‘person’ (or even a ‘spiritual person’) and more of the simple, spontaneous flow of Life itself.

I say this from knowing him for more than 40 years. Long before he was my mentor, he was my older brother. His inner journey began during a Vipassana Meditation retreat at the age of 14, when he had an unforgettable experience of oneness and expansion. At 28, the ad executive quit a promising career to become a seeker with his teacher Swami Chaitanya Bharti, who gave him the name Gyan Dev (now shortened to GD).

For eight years, he lived the life of a full-time seeker and modern-day disciple. Alongside mastering the subtle teachings of Advaita, he taught himself various healing systems: Bach Flower Medicine, Homeopathy, Sacred Astrology, Byron Katie’s The Work, the Sedona System, EFT, Access Consciousness, Z Point and Matrix Energetics.

Over time, he found he could ‘see’ and sense things about others at levels they didn’t have access to. He found himself receiving communication from ascended masters and angelic entities. His natural gifts of clairvoyance, empathy and kundalini transfer (shaktipat) developed. All of which were employed in the service of healing family, friends and gradually, anyone who came to him.

A happy hermit, he lives in Pune, India, with a happy backyard menagerie of squirrels, coucals, pigeons, mongoose and one cat-without-a-name. He spends most of his time today either in healing sessions or exploring newer modalities of healing. His two favorite books remain ‘I Am That’ and ‘A Course in Miracles’.

The most recent in this lifelong quest has been his experimentation with energy medicine & informational healing. Impressed with the results of Inergetix-CoRe technology, he imported this German technology to India and co-founded Core Healing India in partnership with Amit Gaur. They have done some path-breaking experiments in remote group healing for hundreds of participants and continue to break new ground.

Almost all of GD’s life today revolves around helping people trace the hidden ‘viruses’ in their systems and clearing the path to recognizing their true nature as Pure Consciousness. Everything else is just a means to this end: the thirty-five years of meditation, the finely-tuned psychic gifts and a lifetime devoted to the study of energy and consciousness.

Reading about GD, it may be natural to assume that he is the serious saintly sort, pontificating on the mysteries of consciousness in a somber baritone. But I should warn you. He has a sense of humor worthy of a stand-up comic. Long stretches of his weekly Sunday Sessions are just laughter symphonies fuelled by his hilarious observations of human behavior 🙂


“It’s like you’ve finally found a mirror that tells you the truth.”
After a few calls with him, there’s one thing I know for sure. That finding someone like GD, someone who is just soaked in Being, is very very rare. Talking to him about your issues, which seem to huge and scary in your head, are shown back to you in GD’s inimicable style, where you end up laughing and crying at the same time at the stupidity of your beliefs.
With his PJs and slices of sharpness to get the point across, the average call with GD will remove several years off the ego you’ve built. At the same time there is a certain gentleness and compassion with which he works, and self- transformation becomes a process that is enjoyable even! It’s like you’ve finally found a mirror that tells you the truth.

and to unblock things you have been trying to unblock for years.”

I first engaged with GD with a little trepidation. In my experience there are lots of people out there who claim to be things they are not. Now; with the experience I have had of working with him I can’t recommend him highly enough. He has the ability to see all of you and to unblock things I have been trying to unblock for years.
The effects of our sessions reverberate through my life long after the actual session has finished. I have learnt that the greatest investment you can make is in yourself and this is an investment you will be grateful for; for the rest of your life.
