SANGHA: The Gathering

SANGHA

On Saturday, May 27th at 1PM Pacific I’m hosting the first global gathering of SANGHA — an experiment to explore the possibilities of sacred community online for the healing and transformation of self and society. This is a vision long-time coming and I hope to build stronger community among my fellow empaths, healers, creators, visionaries and heart-based entrepreneurs. I don’t know how it will unfold, but I am open to both offer and receive full support now as it is what is needed!

Sangha (Noun: /säNG(g)uh/) is a Sanskrit word denoting a spiritual community devoted to awakening the self. As my teacher Thich Nhat Hanh has said:

“The sangha is a place to practice for the transformation and the healing of self and society. When you are strong, you can be there in order to help society. If your society is in trouble, if your family is broken, if your church is no longer capable of providing you with spiritual life, then you work to take refuge in the sangha so that you can restore your strength, your understanding, your compassion, your confidence. And then in turn you can use that strength, understanding and compassion to rebuild your family and society, to renew your church, to restore communication and harmony.”

This SANGHA is a space in which we can gather to practice and embody the Fire of Love in a way that’s grounded, peaceful, practical, supportive, and ease-filled. It is not enough to just learn and feed the mind, we must anchor into Living The Practice and Doing The Work.

The topic for our first gathering is Soul Work, as in “Doing the Work of Your Soul” and working WITH your Soul through healing, energy work and spiritual practice. This is the key area I have been exploring, teaching and consulting around for many years. Healing is just one aspect—albeit a HUGE one—in opening us up to have clarity of mind and an open heart. But then we also need to fill up our cups!

There is limited seating available and no charge for attendance on the first gathering. In exchange I would ask for your full participation and honest feedback on the experience…

AND if you experience any big heart-opening, professional opportunities and financial openings, or surges in your creative expression/love life (as many of my hundreds of past clients and workshop participants have reported), I hope that you will let me know and share the love with your friends too! :)

Two years ago I closed the thriving Fire of Love community I worked so hard to build with mixed feelings, because as much as I loved what we’d created together it was time to re-envision and distill my essence into something that truly reflected my highest potential. I have grown and transformed so much since then I hardly recognize myself! Over the next months I will reveal more of these changes, but the best way to experience this is directly with me in group or in person. It is time…

I want to see your eyes shining back at me with “the glow” and feel your presence in circle, so we can bridge some of those gaps. So you can have that rare sense of being seen and held and received in the moment, just as you are. So you can experience receiving a direct transmission of energy healing and Universal Life Force.

SANGHA: The First Gathering
When: Saturday May 27th, 1pm Pacific Time (1-2PM Los Angeles time / 4-5PM New York / 9-10PM London)
Where: Private Zoom meeting space online – from the comfort of your home.
What: Soul Work — Energy healing, life-force activation and mindful practice circle.
Why: For the healing and transformation of self and society.
Exchange: I will ask for your full participation, and a brief report-back on your experience within a week after.

Limited space available – sign up here and let’s find out how much we can fill our hearts overflowing! See you in SANGHA. :) <3

Love,
Satya

 

Sacred Mind :: Sacred Breath – Virtual Healing Group

sacred mind

Sunday, May 28th at 1pm Pacific Time

Small Mind thinking vs High Self being. How to stay rooted in your Soul Power so you can walk in beauty and spread love and light every day? Hint: It’s in the breath!

Everything is connected—from what you think of in the morning as you greet each day to how you react when someone honks or cuts you off on your way home at night. As we learn to work with our Spirit and call in deeper levels of being to play, the mind is also given room to soften its hold on our lives. This is one of the greatest pathways to greater happiness and ease — to be able choose our thoughts and realities instead of being victim to our circumstances and the energies around us.

Through the practices of Sacred Breath Healing, you will learn to soothe and bridge the gap between mind and body as Oxygen and Spirit join forces to cleanse and recharge your blood, your being, and all the internal organs. We will also explore a new approach to mindful focus I have been developing to help improve your productivity and presence, and enhance your experience of life every day.

Helpers: Sacred Air/Wind/Mind/Spirit, Archangel Metatron, the Air and Sky Elementals and Eagle Spirit Medicine.  

***

My approach:

The healing energy that moves through me is the power of Spirit that moves through us all. I’m not here to “fix” you or create a dependency on myself as a healer or teacher. I am here to teach you to heal yourself and stand in your own highest power. Every day. This is the only power I know that can truly change the world for the better.

The space I hold for your healing process is strong, safe and magical – unlike anything you may have experienced before. When we circle up together we amplify the power of our healing energy and intentions. Sacred space is invoked as white sage and other offerings are made in prayer. United in a circle of light while each in our own space, we are swept into the music and magic through the flow of Breath and Spirit. Be ready to give up your false stories and beliefs, and experience big shifts and synchronicities lining up in your life when you simply show up as you are. Each person will receive the opportunity to be heard and receive personal guidance and support in group.

About Breathwork:

The pranayama breathing practice I teach is incredibly effective in releasing deep-rooted blocks and supporting the healing of your energetic, emotional and physical body. This gentle two-stage breathing meditation with ancient yoga roots can be used any time to ground and clear your energy, raise your vibration and restore symbiosis to your body and soul. Traditionally done while laying down, it’s very simple to integrate into your daily practice. I have witnessed deeper healing and self-empowerment in myself and my clients through Breathwork than 20 years of prior spiritual practice and training with masters around the world.

Benefits:

  • Release stuck energy and old beliefs that hold you back from living in your highest power and manifesting what you truly desire.
  • Learn how to harness the Universal Life Force for greater strength, vibrance and clarity in all your life and work.
  • Improve your overall health and energy levels — breathwork has been proven to help release toxins, lower blood pressure, reduce general aches and pains, strengthen the immune system, improve stamina and promote deeper sleep.
  • Release stress, anxiety, anger, sadness and self-doubt to make room for love, strength and confidence, and most importantly—your Spirit.
  • Receive direct guidance on overcoming your own personal challenges around healing, energy blocks, personal empowerment and spiritual practice—whatever that might look like for you.

All registered guests will receive an audio recording of the session, in case you are unable to attend live. You will also receive a post-session Cosmic Playbook download to continue deepening your own healing and practice. 

Space is limited, so please purchase your tickets in advance.  Set aside two hours for yourself, we will begin on time at 1pm and end by 3pm Pacific Time (Los Angeles time – see this site to convert to your timezone).

New: Soul Oracle Readings

Soul Oracle Readings

I’m excited about the rebirth and expansion of my Intuitive Counsel with your Spirit Guides and Animals to: Soul Oracle Readings. These readings are especially helpful for healers, empaths, artists, innovators and spirit-driven entrepreneurs who are at a crossroads or needing a boost in your productive capacity. If you feel that you could use some real support:

  • Healing, clearing, and strengthening your energetic field
  • Establishing clear boundaries
  • Hearing what your Spirit is calling for and how to choose your next steps
  • Receiving direct guidance on how to most effectively overcome blocks or obstacles that are holding you back
  • Developing your intuition and other spiritual gifts and practices
  • Getting clarity on your relationships and how to improve your outlook
  • Developing a stronger relationship with your High Self Team

These are some of what we’ll typically cover in session through channeling the insight of your High Self. Sessions are 50 minutes and typically include energy healing, light training and homework for supporting your energetic resonance and life/work goals. I work with the Animal Spirit, Angelic and Ascended Master realms to help ground the messages received through clairvoyant sight and hearing into direct actionable insight. One key distinction I must add is that all information is shared in strictest confidence and keen discernment for your highest good.

It’s amazing how much can be accomplished in a short time when we’re really tapped into the highest resonance together. Sessions are by phone/Zoom video conference, or in person in LA/Santa Barbara. To learn more and book a session click here.

 

Sacred Spirit :: Sacred Fire – Virtual Healing Group

Sunday, May 7th at 1pm Pacific Time

Harnessing the passion, purpose and sacred power of who you really are. This is one of my favorites as many of you know I’ve been working with SOUL FIRE and the “Fire of Love” for many years. It’s some hot and spicy energy!

One of the challenges most artists, healers and creators have is learning to manage our energy to be more consistently productive in our lives and work. We all have layers of trauma and anger energy to deal with, and cultivating the flow of Love and Spirit within helps convert those fiery energies into a more productive and steady flow of passion-driven creativity. Lots of good energy and creative life force to work with here as we approach the full Mother’s Moon of May with gratitude.

It takes a conscious and active commitment to keep moving through and transmuting the shadow energies into light. We’ll be illuminating everything to shine bright and shine on!!

Helpers: Sacred Soul/Fire/Spirit, Archangel Michael, the Fire Elementals and Lion Spirit Medicine.

Healing at Lucidity Festival Eudaimonia Healer Sanctuary

I was honored to chosen to be on the official healing team for Lucidity Festival this year, and will be providing private sessions by donation! Breathwork meditation, energy healing, and intuitive counsel with your Spirit Guides and power animals. I will be in the healing sanctuary from 2-6pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Come by for a session or a hug. Here’s where you can Schedule your session. And in case you’re curious, my schedule outside of healing time is here  — so that I can know exactly what I am missing as I surrender to the call of Spirit. :)

I will have a small selection of pieces from my healing power crystals shop with me for friends and clients!

This is my first real festival. As an extremely empathic introvert expressionist I’m cool with performing and showing up to share my magic, but not so much with crowds and non-stop party fests — that has always felt unsafe and unappealing to me. Managing my energy is incredibly key and I have had to do a lot of work with myself to stay calm around the sheer number of unknown variables in stepping into something like this — it is all new to me, and I am surrendering to a different level of showing up guided and surrounded by my angels and High Self team.

This festival is different too. It’s really about the transformation of the individual and society. There are a bunch of different villages from the Lover’s Nest to the Warrior’s Way that all speak to the archetypes of humanity, which I am very much drawn to in my life and work for many years. The theme this year is Eudaimonia…

The Greek philosopher Aristotle described eudaimonia as ultimate happiness derived from two things: excelling at your role in society, and living a moral and virtuous life. (What was Aristotle’s Rx for Happiness?)

As you may know that’s very much in alignment with my life mission. I’m excited to meet some of the Santa Barbara soul family too as I plan to make my home base and set up a healing sanctuary somewhere in Santa Barbara county near the woods. Here’s a piece from one of the founders about the story arc of the festival, reclaiming and seeding the story of our collective future so we can move into that reality of a truly human-centric love and truth based world…. Lucidity Festival’s heroic journey not yet complete.

Look forward to meeting the magical souls and being delightfully surprised by sweetness and magic, big love and healing, and I’m thinking some fun too! ;)

Xo,
Satya

Sacred Body :: Sacred Earth – Virtual Breathwork Group

Sacred Body

Sunday, April 16th at 1-3pm Pacific Time

What if we could love ourselves and each other the way the earth loves us? Giving endlessly, turning manure into gold, transmuting all energy into new life with unconditional love….

We are each a tiny microcosm of mother earth, with our fiery core and all the elements working together in unison, and yet we have so much to learn from her about truly living in alignment. In so many ways she is the perfect model for the fully integrated human. When we can really tend to our bodies and our selves as the sacred vessel we also begin to learn how to really love — the true generosity in allowing ourselves to be held, to give and to receive fully of the richness that we are. We’ll be working with the energies of Mother Earth and Easter to help us find our ground in service to self and others. Continue Reading →

In love, at last…

I wanted nothing more than to fall in love again. To feel the pulsing in my veins for my muse, my love, my life alive with her. I searched the world over she was nowhere to be found. And when I had all but given up, the well had run dry and nothing in my cup, I felt a call somewhere in my soul. I can’t say much more, just a whisper maybe a surge. A call to bear witness to this sacred form, alive with the vital force of ten thousand and more, the living gods who came before…. Why, just look at your hands! The way skin wraps around all those delicate bones, grown from a seed and shaped through time, as though the story of their lines was written just for you. Could there be a sweeter, `more perfect imperfection? Continue Reading →

Make Yourself a Refuge

island refuge

Where is your refuge?

For empaths, creators, and those who might have a tendency to worry unnecessarily about what other people think—fretting over how your self-expression is received—there is a solution. The best thing I have found is to establish a place of abiding peace, a set point to fall back on and rest inside. In nurturing this space daily, a sort of sanctuary is created. A place of refuge to return when our thoughts, fears and anxieties start getting the best of us. And in that space, the false truths of our human experience are released and transmuted in the fire of our spirit. The noble fire of Love and Truth.

Because we are human, we must work with what we have. Because we are divine, we have everything we need.

If you have not yet found a practice or path that works for you, just let me know. With more than 30 years experience in my own spiritual practice (literally), I might have a few pointers I can help you with.

Find your refuge – your inner sanctuary. Revel in the sweetness. Let it flourish and expand to infuse more of your earth walk with passionate presence. As the Buddha himself once put it, “Make yourself an island…make Truth your refuge, it is the only refuge.”

I touched on this in my newsletter Sunday, but didn’t have the room to expand as there was already so much to explore. If you would like to receive it next time, along with access to my private library of resources for introverts, creators, and heart-centered entrepreneurs, I invite you to sign up here. Vaya con dios. ~

Love and peace,
Always

The Power of Sharing From the Heart vs the Sadness of Existence

Satya

The trouble I find with so much writing and teaching on personal development is it’s more words and ideas than substance. More teaching than showing. More selling than serving. Worst of all is when it perpetuates more pain and confusion than truth or healing. And this is true for so much of what we create as passionate, caring, committed humans, no matter how mindful or well intentioned we may be. You look at where and what it comes from, you look into the motivations of the people who are creating and sharing it, you see the emptiness and lies we are surrounded with, and your heart cannot help but breaking open for what is there.

I want to share something that changes your life, every time.
I want to whisper into your soul and flip the switch that makes you go ahhhh!
I want to linger in your memory like that once-in-a-lifetime embrace when you finally received the nourishment you craved your whole life (‘was it a dream or was it real?’).
I want to go deep with love, and then deeper still, because it’s the only way I know that truly soothes my soul.

What do you want to receive? Maybe something of what I look for too…

A light that went off in my heart turned on.
A recognition that I’ve found someone who maybe, just maybe, might understand me.
A feeling I can take with me, to hold in my heart and fill the space of love that left.
Another human being who values what I do — who holds the experience of life in a space of humble awe and reverence and respect.

And kindness. True kindness. Always, kindness. So precious. Rare.

I think it’s what we all really want. Something simple and complete. To be witnessed and received. To be honored and respected. And maybe, if we’re lucky, to be that person for someone else we love.

When we share the work of our soul, we’re always secretly hoping to elicit a response — to feel and hear and experience that love reflected back to us in some way. No matter how healed or strong or loved we may be, we will always need this in some form. There’s nothing more painful then when our creations are ignored. An echo of love sent back on deaf ears. But how can we expect to receive anything more than what we sent out? When we were deaf and blind to our very own heart. Can we really expect the love that we crave when our own self worth and value is so twisted up and locked away behind walls of hardened resin and steel?

How can it ever be enough, when our own hearts are too closed off to be satisfied in receiving anything less than riches, fame and recognition??

A heart that has no real kindness or compassion for itself is a hard and jagged place to rest. It offers no refuge or respite from the cold cruel world in which it grew — through which we have all emerged in some form. It brings more sadness, tearing at the seams in our hearts. Like a bucket with cracks that can never hold water, or that hole in your pocket where keys get lodged and coins are lost forever, it’s a place where no amount of love can ever be enough.

I can think of so many creators who are friends online and almost continually working from this place. Always pushing levers to elicit response, and not really present to receive when we do show up to try and help or offer some kindness and attention. Never satisfied. Never enough.

You can see it all the time and almost everywhere you look. I have been there! I know what it’s like. That part is here in all of us. It just is. It’s there. It’s waiting to be seen and held. Loved into wholeness.

I don’t care how much self work you’ve done, or how proud you are of your scars, there is no end to the healing you can do to bring yourself into wholeness. To fully embody the strength and power of your true self. I can speak from so many years of experience, so much soul healing I have done, it only gets easier with time and practice. Each layer revealing another. And sometimes things just have to get temporarily uglier and messier before they get better. Just a fact of life. The funny way things work.

If you want to receive something akin to the fullness of your spirit, you absolutely can! This I know. You can speak from the heart and soul as much as from the mind. You can show us what is really true. You can draw from the well of your love. In giving from that place your work becomes a thousand times more resonant. So much more powerful. And if you can stay open to receive, that much more love in return.

Just please don’t speak down to us like churchgoers from the pulpit. Don’t create and teach and share without acknowledging your own place in the darkness you seek to dispel. Make space for all of what’s inside. Give from a place of true generosity. Not because you are trying to convert emotions into sales, or just to get a rise, or something more than what you have to give. Share the love, because it feels good. Simply because it is. Good.

You are here to do some good and share the light, to be that something for the people you love in the world. Are you not? Is that not in the end what you truly want to give? And to receive? And to Be? You see, your beautiful big heart, your passionate soul, the sadness and regret underneath it all — it really just wants a little love and recognition. A lot of love and compassion. And then some more. Pretty please…with cherries on top.

Hahaha tralalahh! Silly little sad heart. Beautiful broken-hearted friend. Bucket full of holes. You are welcome too. Here is some light so that we both may see more clearly…some putty to help you patch the cracks with love. I feel you, I recognize you, I welcome you. 

I won’t claim to love you as you are. Who can even say? Do I know you really? I have so much love to give and share in heaps though…. Perhaps I do know you, because I swear that I can feel your heart looking through my eyes and these words when you come here to read. I can feel so much of what you feel. At times it’s like your heart and mine they almost beat together…and yes, so much love in there.

It hurts me sometimes to feel that sadness, but the more that I love it to wholeness inside myself, the more that I can receive your heart too. Just as it comes. I can receive, because it’s all in there. Underneath it all, there are no cracks. No holes to be found in the sea of love. And if you come forward honestly, and share your light with me, I promise I will look for it, and I will find it, and I will receive you fully. No matter how shrouded it may be I will see the light in you, and then it will have no choice but to shine a little brighter.

Ahh yes that feels so much better! So lovely and warm and true. :)

Always,
Satya

 

** Shine on and share some of that beautiful true heart with us **
