Bodhisattva Shree Swami Premodaya, Founder of ICODA

Private sessions with Swami Premodaya present the powerful opportunity of quickly identifying what needs to be faced—and then dealing with it—once and for all.  The benefits of direct guidance and support from a living Bodhisattva, who also happens to be a grandmaster therapist, are unmistakable.  Although only words are utilized (talking), he works directly with your energy, your unconscious mind, and your inner self (spirit).  The effects are incisive and transformative.

Some characterize Premodaya's work with them as a ‘profound guided journey,' that above all feels ‘completely safe.'  All fears are surmountable in the right hands.  All problems are transmuted into higher consciousness when worked with correctly. Another observation is that Premodaya's work with people seems to ‘hit the mark exactly,' with dramatic results, achieved rapidly. Describing his prior work as a professional therapist, Premodaya has explained:

“I learned to completely trust the patient's own ‘process.'  This phenomenon has been much studied in Western psychology.  ‘Process' refers to the complete set of needs and directions for healing that the patient's psyche brings into the room. The art of it is learning how to interpret it, and letting the patient's own process determine what happens.  In that sense, my job is to guide the patient to where their very own psyche wants to take them. I'm guiding the patient, but their own psyche is guiding me.  No mistake is possible, since their own psyche has complete access to all information, past and present.  This is because, by definition, ‘psyche' consists of the entire consciousness, together with the complete unconscious.  The psyche knows what is needed, better than any therapist, and better than the patient themself.  A good example is a young man who came to work on family problems.  His process kept guiding me into spiritual areas, even though he insisted he was not a ‘spiritual' person.  After the first five minutes, we ended up not even discussing his family problems.  Instead, his process focused on his ideas about himself and his life, in relation to spiritual realities. Later, he reported that the very next time he visited home, all his family problems had disappeared!  For the first time, he could see his parents clearly.  He described feeling instant forgiveness for the past, coupled with genuine feelings of love and gratitude—where only rage and conflict had existed before.  As the therapist, my only intention had been to help him start sorting out his family issues.  But his psyche had bigger plans.  This is the power of the ‘process'.  It goes right to the crux of what will make the biggest difference.  And it makes perfect sense, as after all, it's nothing more and nothing less than the person's own absolute wisdom, fully actualized."


On a practical level, Premodaya's current work is preceded by:

  • 41 years of experience and advanced training as a psychotherapist, with a distinguished career as a successful mental health professional.  He has personally designed and supervised award-winning mental health programs at dozens of hospitals and treatment centers all over the country, serving thousands.

  • 39 years of devoted spiritual practice, as a disciple and student of some of the 20th century's most widely accepted and respected (and notorious!) spiritual masters (Osho, Gangaji, Swami Satchidananda, Eli Jaxon-Bear, Peace Pilgrim, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Adi Da Samraj).


"What I do now doesn't resemble how I used to work with people, say, 20 years ago.  Something else entirely is at work—something that doesn't have that much do to with me.  I'm completely there, yet somehow, I'm completely emptied.  Something takes over; something happens.  I don't really see myself as a psychotherapist anymore.  It's   something else now, something bigger, deeper." 


Private sessions are $300 (in person, telephone, skype or online conferencing).  A private session with Premodaya is a 30-minute profound life-changing experience of truly coming into contact with oneself. Are you ready to take your life to the next level?  To the ultimate level? Are you willing to truly know yourself, and come to grips with life, once and for all?  To book a private session with Premodaya for an individual, couple, family, or small group, call 310.497.1899 or click the button below.
