What Is Satsang?
Many westerners may not be familiar with the tradition of satsanga also called “satsang.” Satsang derives from the Sanskrit words “sat” (pronounced “sot”) which means “being, essence, truth or reality” and “sanga” (pronounced “song-ga” as in “song”) which means “association or gathering.” So loosely translated we can say satsang is “a gathering with beings for Truth.” Or perhaps “association of true beings.”
Who should attend Satsang with Sensei? Anyone seeking to eliminate their stress, anxiety, personal suffering or conflicts with others within a conscious community seeking the same. This a dynamic interaction between Sensei and attendees where (1) you may have the opportunity to ask questions directly of Sensei and have them answered in real-time (2) request to dialogue with Sensei directly (all other attendees witnessing the conversation) or (3) simply attend in silence and observe the entire interaction and exchange of satsang while in deep contemplation and reflection. No participant will be required to speak, ask questions or be heard. Rather, it is a privilege that may be granted to an attendee if the question is deemed by Sensei to be directly relevant to the purpose of these gatherings and broad enough so that all participants could benefit from exploring it.
COME AS YOU ARE
Satsang with Sensei is open to all true seekers regardless of their personal beliefs, religious affiliations or lack of any. Minimum age requirement to participate is 16 years old. International and domestic participants are welcome as this will be facilitated in-person and online with live simultaneous audio and video of Sensei at a time convenient for multiple time zones.
“Sensei is one of the kindest, most introspective, and most spiritual people I have had the honor to meet and work with. Within each of these realms, Sensei has journeyed with me beyond many mindsets and worldviews that I have held. Along the way, he has given me the tools I need to tend my own garden. Prior to working with Sensei, my garden was of one hue but now it flourishes with many vibrant colors.”Michelle S.
