Durga’s BIO

Julia Sánchez, AKA Durga, was born in the Andes Mountains at Manizales, Colombia, in 1976. She grew up with a large family, and with the books of Gabriel García Márquez. With a BA in Architecture, she had a successful career in Antigua & Barbuda, West Indies, and Miami, FL. Her joys and inspirations include singing, yoga, meditation, dancing, traveling, working with people, writing and nature.

Her life changed in 2009 when she met Ram Giri (a German/American spiritual teacher), who became her husband and partner. He introduced her to HeartSourcing®, the practice of discovering our own wisdom and freedom through the power of the Heart. Years of longing to understand her experience of suffering began to fade away. Together, they held satsangs (community of spiritual friends), workshops, retreats, sacred rituals, kirtans, and teachings in the U.S. and abroad.

In early 2017—after a year and a half of living and teaching in India, Nepal and Mexico—Ram Giri was diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer. Life changed again. After his passing, Durga devoted her time and energy to finding a deeper healing by slowing down, resting, learning from loss and grief, acceptance and joy. The spiritual practices she has learned, and nature’s own rhythm and wisdom deeply nurtured her during the time of mourning. She is now looking forward to continuing her life and service, guided by her deep intuitive nature and true Love.

A meditation on the Heart

Freedom from stress, pain and suffering

How Love Heals

"People and situations do not cause you pain.
Your thoughts and emotions about them do.
You can change those reactions.
This is the key to freedom."
- Ram Giri
