Satsang with Shambhavi

By Shambhavi Sarasvati

Join Shambhavi Sarasvati for a weekly exploration of self-realization, death, love, devotion and waking up while living in a messy world. Satsang is an ancient spiritual practice from India. It means "being in Reality together." During satsang, people gather with a teacher to learn, ask questions, find community, chant and sing. Shambhavi Sarasvati gives satsang every Sunday in San Rafael, California. The dharma talks offered here are recordings of the live satsang. Shambhavi is the spiritual director of Jaya Kula, a nonprofit organization with centers in Portland, Maine and Portland, Oregon. Her training is in the View and practices of Trika Shaivism from Kashmir and the Dzogchen tradition of Tibet. She is a householder sannyasini and a devotee of Anandamayi Ma. Visit jayakula.org for her full teaching schedule and more information. Shambhavi's books include Tantra: the Play of Awakening (2012), Pilgrims to Opennness: Direct Realization Tantra in Everyday Life (2009), Returning (2015), and No Retreat: Poems on the Way to Waking Up (2016). All of Shambhavi's books are available on Amazon.
