Bhola received his training from his grandfather who was a skilful and well-known local shaman. He has also studied shamanism with different teachers in Nepal, Northeast India, Bhutan and parts of Sikkim and Darjeeling. 

Bhola was educated in Nepal and India and holds a Master's Degree in Cultural Anthropology from Delhi University. He is a graduate in Naturopathy from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines in Calcutta. He has spent long periods with Shamans in India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet and is a bridge between worlds and cultures.

Sandra Ingerman's testimonial


"Bhola is an extraordinary shaman who is carrying down a beautiful tradition that he was initiated into by his grandfather. Bhola is a true example of a shaman who can walk into a room and uplift everyone and transform by his presence of light and love. His teaching style is filled with love, clarity, truth, wisdom, and humour. Everyone I know who has studied with Bhola has loved his workshop. And it is a true gift to receive a healing from Bhola. Do not miss any opportunity you have to work with Bhola!"


Sandra Ingerman is a shamanic teacher, and author of many including "Soul Retrieval" and "Medicine for the Earth"
