Swami Tirtha known as the Hip Gurus Guide has a doctorate in Ayurvedic medicine and over the past 40 years he has written several books including the Amazon #1 bestseller in its category, The Ayurveda Encyclopedia (30,000 copies in print). He has been a monk since 1990. His international speaking has taken him to speak to the White House alternative medicine commission, and several medical colleges including Johns Hopkins. Swamiji was recognized as a monk by his guru in the Himalayas and as a natural born shaman and healer by shamans in the Amazon rainforest. He began his spiritual path as a college freshman in 1972 when he lost his parents in a car accident. That tragic event awoke his search for inner peace. Swamiji’s latest book is The Stress-Free College Student, aimed to help reduce the 80% anxiety/depression and 50% dropout rates among college students. Bryant University’s Pinterest page, ‘Books Worth Reading’ has added his book to their shelf, now sitting beside their list of ’50 Books that Changed the World’. Swamiji blends ancient wellness & consciousness with modern cutting edge EEG brain waves & Heart Rate Variability scanning technology. He offers his breakthrough expertise to students and entrepreneurs, addressing stress-management, wellness, and life-calling.
