Everett Schnell was born in Bad Nauhiem, Germany, on February 4th, 1955, along with his twin brother Donald. Everett first became aware of spiritual phenomena while very young. People reported that the twins had extra sensory abilities and were telepathic.
In the early 1960's Everett pursued the study of Yoga though the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda and the Self-Realization Fellowship. A Swami of that order initiated him into the highest techniques of Kriya Yoga. Everett began seeing the "third eye" and hearing nadam (divine sounds).
Along with his brother, Everett met the Siddha Guru, Swami Muktananda, in the early 1970's. He lived and studied Siddha Yoga for years at Muktananda's ashrams in Oakland, CA; Mesa, AZ; South Fallsburg, NY; Philadelphia, PA; and Ganespuri, India. In the mid-seventies Swami Muktananda publicly blessed Don and Everett to become fully realized Gurus (teachers) with the ability to awaken the Kundalini (Holy Spirit).
In the 1980's Everett made numerous trips to India to meet the holy man Sri Satya Sai Baba. During one of these trips, Everett met his personal teacher, Swamy Nagananda.
Swamy Nagananda blessed him with a meditation power, which can be transferred to others to deepen their meditation and take them to higher states and deeper levels. Even veteran meditators report they experience deeper states of bliss and a peace that surpasses all understanding. Contact with Everett can be a catalyst to ignite a quantum self-transformation to higher states of consciousness. Swami Nagananda also blessed him with other Siddhis (powers) including teleportation, the ability to appear in dreams and meditation states, the gift of healing with an ancient mantra over 500,000 years old, and the ability to give people the answers to their questions on life. This charismatic gift of the Holy Spirit is also known among Christians as the ability to read souls.
Everett is a living spiritual teacher with the ability to grant direct experience of at-one-ment with God. Everett entered the RCIA program at Espiritu Santo Church in 1995 and was baptized by water and fire. He loves reading about the miracles and Saints of the Catholic Church. His favorite Saint is Padre Pio. Everett has met many modern day Nuns and Priests that have many of the powers and abilities he encountered with Swami Nagananda in his pursuit of Yoga. Everett realized that Yoga has many beneficial teachings that can be of great benefit to many Christians, and that the Catholic Church can be of considerable benefit to many Yogis in the west. Also, Everett has a unique ability to get beyond the religious labels and designations that keep people from experiencing God's Grace within their lives. Everett often points out that religious dogmas and labels have been at the root of many wars, conflicts and hostilities.
Everett now resides with his family in Palm Harbor, Florida. For information about Everett's workshops email him at Everett
