SWATHIMAA is the founder, CEO & creative force behind SHIVALOKA. Born in Berlin, she grew up in Syria, and later lived in Istanbul, Los Angeles and London before she eventually found herself pulled to Southern India where she studied for more than 10 years under the direct guidance of one of India’s greatest modern-day saints, Sri Sai Kaleshwara Swami.
He trained her in powerful, secret, siddhic healing techniques and ancient soul enlightenment sciences. In 2007, she opened a spiritual center in Hong Kong, where she offered healings and teachings to thousands of seekers. In order to help her students with their daily mantra meditation practice, she attempted to make meditation malas available to them. But, Swathimaa soon realized how difficult it was to find authentic Rudraksha malas of the highest vibratory quality. It was then that she envisioned the birth of SHIVALOKA.
With the blessings of her master and the intent to heal & protect people’s hearts and souls through the highest divine vibrations potent in sacred power objects, she creates authentic, energized soul jewelry for spiritual practice and as a conscious lifestyle accessory for our modern times. Swathimaa currently resides in the South of Bali, with her young family, including the newest addition to the Shivaloka family, her baby boy, Sai.
