Torsten E. Klimmer, aka Omananda, is a German-born world traveler, mystic, artist, producer, writer, and life coach. As a young adult, Torsten was politically active in the former GDR and helped (prayerfully and non-violently) in the movement that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Torsten, who spends his time producing shamanic sound in therapy, writing mystical poetry, traveling around the world, creating workshops, initiation journeys, films, music, art, and performing at various events, had a profound spiritual awakening in 1993 that changed the course of his life.
The mystical and shamanistic tradition of Tantra, specifically non-dual Kashmiri Shaivism, have shaped Omananda’s experiential understanding of the world. Shiva is the destroyer of ignorance, the original yogi, the dancer of the Tadava, and one of three main aspects of the trinity of godheads in the Hindu pantheon, and Omananda is devoted to Shiva just as Vasuki is. A part of his spiritual training (sadhana) was to travel twelve years non-stop. He became Omananda in Pushkar (India), where he was living at the time and traveling barefoot. He had started to travel the world with the aim of liberating himself from habitual, collectively limiting psychological programming and conditioning, and was initiated somewhere on the road to nowhere directly by Lord Shiva into the 112 Tantric Sutras that he experiences as an embodiment. J. Krishnamurti has had a profound impact on Omananda, and he considers him his first guru.The picture below was given to him by a random stranger who took it in Rajasthan while dancing.

Writing, artful expressions, photograpy, and film have been main-themes in Omananda’s life. He is the visionary producer who created  Liquid Crystal Vision (, an instant cult documentary, which was published in 2002. 
Omananda performed mind-blowing visual light shows at transformational festivals around the world between 2002 and 2014. He is the author of the fascinating book Transcendental Journeys: A Visionary Quest for Freedom. 
Omananda helped to launch Unify in 2012, which became one of the biggest synchronized meditation movements on the planet at the time –
Omananda has made activist films, which you can watch on this website. The films that rotated on Mexican satellite TV helped to protect WWF land and the indigenous medicine cultures with whom he spent years in Mexico—the Huicholes. With members, chiefs, presidents, and vice presidents of the Native American Church (NAC), he learned and filmed how to use mind-altering plants during ritual prayer in sacred medicine ceremonies.
