This gathering meets monthly to watch DVDs of Adyashanti, an American-born spiritual teacher devoted to serving the awakening of all beings. His teachings are an open invitation to stop, inquire, and recognize what is true and liberating at the core of all existence. These evenings are hosted by Jacelyn Bronte and Anita Adams.
“Satsang [‘association with truth’] is about remembrance. It’s as if you forgot you were this openness and thought that you were something. Humans have spun endless mythologies about how we forgot, but it really doesn’t matter how. The heart of satsang is not to change and alter yourself, but to remember what you are. Truth is about just remembering, recognizing, or realizing your true nature. . . .
“The limited person you thought you were starts to realize that you are this openness instead. You will also see that this is what others are. When you liberate yourself, it’s not just your self, it is the Self that is liberated. You’re remembering everybody’s Self because it’s the same Self. When this is realized, it enables the total transformation of human interaction.”
–Adyashanti, Emptiness Dancing, “Openness”
Adyashanti, author of The Way of Liberation, Falling into Grace, True Meditation, and The End of Your World, is an American-born spiritual teacher based in California, devoted to serving the awakening of all beings. His teachings are an open invitation to stop, inquire, and recognize what is true and liberating at the core of all existence.
Asked to teach in 1996 by his Zen teacher of 14 years, Adyashanti offers teachings that are free of any tradition or ideology. “The Truth I point to is not confined within any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine, but is open to all and found within all.”
This group is offered freely.
