Whirling is for all of humanity and does not belong to any one part of the world, a certain religion or a spiritual sect. People from all countries and all faiths have been turning, spinning or whirling since the beginning of time.

When you watch children spin don't you envy their fun? Children everywhere love the freeing sense of spinning, and it doesn't matter what continent they are twirling on. Whirling belongs to all of humanity.

Shahram Shiva has invented a unique new breakthrough technique that makes it possible for all of us to turn comfortably, competently, without any dizziness or discomfort. The beauty of Mr. Shiva's system is in its simplicity.

Whirling is as natural to us as walking. As mentioned above we have been whirling for thousands of years. Our universe manifests its energy through the spiral, hence as we whirl we harmonize with this energy; we tap into the core of our universe.

Whirling affects you on physical, mental, spiritual and psychological levels.

Whirling can instantly change your mood. It can brighten it and bring a smile to your face.

Whirling is a meditative movement and a form of meditation. Whirling can almost instantly create a state of meditation. Mr. Shiva calls it "active meditation" vs. the classic Buddha posture which he calls "passive meditation." This active form of meditation helps center the body and the mind within a short few minutes.

Whirling is a wonderful form of zero to low impact exercise.

Whirling is also an effective method for weight loss. Practicing whirling on regular basis will keep you lean, vibrant and full of energy.

"The wind is mightiest when it whirls"

All matter in our universe is in a constant state of spinning, from subatomic particles to solar systems and galaxies. Every particle in our body and all that is around us are already spinning. Actually the Milky Way galaxy that our solar system is a part of, is spinning in a spiral fashion as you read this.

Shiva's method is based on basic laws of physics and the common thread between all physical manifestation.

This easy-to-follow four-step system is invented and developed exclusively by Shahram Shiva in 1995, and is non-ritualistic by design. Students by following this proven method without any prior training can begin whirling immediately.

Since 1995, Shahram Shiva has helped tens of thousands of people to whirl comfortably and competently. Some of his students, including Deepak Chopra, teach his method in their workshops regularly.

Shiva's guided group whirling has been featured on CNN, and has been taught at Kripalu Center, Omega Institute, NY Open Center among others. He has worked with choreographers and stage directors. He has performed and has trained dancers to whirl at New York's Joyce and LaMama theaters. He has also trained the actor Robert Downey Jr. to whirl in the movie Game 6.

"Shiva's Four-Step Method to Whirling" is published in his book of Rumi poems "Hush Don't Say Anything to God: Passionate Poems of Rumi" and is taught in group workshops. Mr. Shiva conducts whirling workshops on regular basis and has so far successfully worked with groups as large as 400, although even larger groups can easily be guided. He envisions stadiums filled with whirling enthusiasts, spinning in unison.
