Dean Dayalu & The Vedic Vision™
When Dean first took a course in Eastern Philosophy as a freshman in college, he knew then that the pursuit of spiritual knowledge would define his life and career. This inquiry led him to study yoga in the late 1970’s and to take his first trip to India in the 1980’s. He became immersed in all aspects of the tradition and teachings of Yoga, and soon, took a deeper dive into Sanskrit, Vedanta, and other Vedic traditions.
He continued his study of Western psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he earned a PhD in Psychology with a dissertation on Yoga and psychotherapy. In the late 1970’s, the seeds of this life-long integration were already being sowed, when Dean coordinated a treatment and research program at UW-Madison Department of Psychiatry, which used Yoga and meditation in the treatment of clients experiencing depression. And for over 35 years now, Dean has been a practicing psychologist.
In the first one-on-one meeting with his beloved spiritual teacher, the world-renowned Pujya Swami Dayananda Sawaswati, Dean was counseled on the integration of Vedanta, Psychology, and Jyotisha (Vedic Astrology). Swami Dayananda asked Dean to contact Hart de Fouw, and soon thereafter he began his studies with Hart, who many have said to be among the most brilliant practitioners and teachers of Jyotisha alive today.
The culmination of Dean Dayalu’s life’s work is the The Vedic Vision™—a carefully-crafted synthesis of three Lights of Self-Knowledge. These Lights are: Jyotisha, Psychology, and Vedanta. For many years, Dean has offered The Vedic Vision™ to clients across the globe, helping them to see their way to wholeness, happiness, and freedom.
Dean’s active clientele comes from around the world, including the United States, Canada, South America, Japan, Europe, Indonesia, and India.
Due to the international nature of his client list, sessions are often conducted online, via Skype, Zoom, or other internet mediums. Clients in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, New Jersey—or in India—may opt for in-person sessions.
Today, he travels frequently between the U.S. and India, where he offers The Vedic Vision™.
