Come join us on Sunday December 17th in celebrating the season and the holidays (or holy-days). We will meditate together, connect with community, and share snacks and merriment, as well as have a group discussion about the future direction of Open Circle for the New Year. Some may want to continue after by going out to dinner together.
We hope to see you there!

The spiritual journey inevitably leads to the confrontation of our "spiritual life" with our "material life", discovering how and where we truly embody the truth of our heart. Realizing the emptiness of our true nature is just the starting point of an integration process that involves all aspects of our lives. After the recognition of the nothingness of our Being, the second part of the answer to the question "Who am I?" leads us to several moment of crisis in which old patterns of behavior that are still based on the ego-based separative mind emerge to be dissolved by the light of Awareness.
Shakti has spent many years deepening this integration process that happens mostly after the first glimpse of recognition and can keep unfolding for several years. With wisdom, humor, and heartfelt connection, Shakti shares a message of discovering our divinity at the very core of our humanity. Shakti has been sharing this message of non separation since 2003 with many people around the world, especially in Italy and in Europe, holding satsangs and retreats. Although her message is profoundly in tune with Advaita and nondual Tantric traditions, she offers a contemporary and accessible vision of what is true awakening.
