Satsang: How to Be Quiet

February 23 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20 – $30
how to be quiet

“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.” – Mother Teresa

What does silence have to do with our spiritual practice? With our embodied living? Why would being quiet help us get closer to the truth of who we are? Or help us be a better person?

Join Grace before she departs for her annual personal retreat for an exploration of silence…and even a little practice of it.

Each week we hold Satsang – “gathering together to share truth” – at the Seattle Tantra Community in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle. We’ll begin with some personal practice (movement, meditation, mantra), share a teaching and discussion on a topic of Tantra, and conclude with a circle connecting with other community members celebrating the divine within each other.

10:00 – Brief intro to tantra for newcomers; introductions.

10:10 – Asana, pranayama, mantra, meditation

10:50 – Teaching & Discussion

11:30 – Puja

What is a “Satsang”?

In tantra, a satsang is a gathering of spiritual people for the purpose of sharing practice and wisdom. And this is exactly what we do. Each satsang brings different themes and topics, usually presented by Grace, with all discussion welcome and invited. The themes and topics generally touch on aspects of sacred sexuality and the embodied spirituality of classical and neo-tantra. Sometimes we branch into relevant teachings from other traditions, as well as the nuances of non-dual spiritual experience.

How much does this cost?

Satsang is offered on a donation basis. Your gift of any amount to help sustain the instructor and cover costs of the event is welcome. We offer the guidance of $20-$30 to help sustain the community. Gifts of greater amounts are always welcome and help extend and expand this project.

Who is this for?

Our satsang is suitable for beginning and experienced tantric practitioners interested in the full range of tantric teaching, including meditation, breath, visualization, yoga, diet, philosophy, and sexuality.

Satsang is open to absolutely all genders, ethnic backgrounds, levels of fitness, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual framework. No experience is assumed. Drop in visits are welcome.
