Satsang with Tathina Feran

letter.jpg

Satsang, sitting in the company of truth, is an open meeting in the supportive space for discovering the natural, quiet joy and ease of simply being.

In satsang, you are supported in investigating through self inquiry into who you are at the roots. We sit together with your questions and reports to uncover the universal truth underneath our personal stories that seem to separate us.

When Tathina met her teacher Gangaji, after years devoted in search of peace and true fulfillment, she discovered herself as being home no matter what is occurring circumstantially, mentally, emotionally, and physically. This is the invitation Tathina shares with anyone wanting to discover themselves as Freedom itself. 

Donations are welcomed

Tune-In Thursdays With Brandee

Join us for a relaxing evening meditation every Thursday (except Nov. 23), as we gather as a group to create balance during the week through part of the holiday season. Brandee will lead a casual guided meditation using a
variety of simple, mindfulness meditation techniques which will vary weekly. 

Regardless of the meditation styles used, the intent is always simply to help you relax and quiet
the mind so that you may let go into a state of peace and equanimity, allowing you to go deeper
and enhance your meditation practice. Meditation helps us to de-stress while fostering
relaxation, self-awareness, focus, creativity and clarity of our physical, emotional, mental and
spiritual state.

meditation with the support of a friendly, informal group, and great for experienced meditators
as well. Cushions and blankets provided for use. Dress comfortably and in layers.
