This is a wonderfully liberating and highly transformative event that will illuminate your entire being and leave you feeling lighter and brighter. Each gathering begins with a skillfully guided meditation followed by an enlightening Q&A.
These gatherings are infused with brief but powerful periods of shaktipat, during which the awakening of everyone in attendance is magnified, creating a collective field of shared awareness that ripples out into the world.
The heart of these gatherings is what is known in India as Satsang. Satsang is a Sanskrit term that refers to a gathering where teachings are given by an awakened guru, and where people can ask questions and receive reliable guidance.
What makes Satsang so unique and special is that the words of an enlightened teacher transmit awakening energy. Such teachings simultaneously contribute to the expansion of consciousness and the development of wisdom.
Beyond using words to educate and enlighten, true spiritual masters are also able to transmit knowledge and awareness silently and telepathically, which is often assimilated by a person even if they are not aware of it in the moment.
How to Prepare for Satsang
If this is your first time, it helps to know what to expect and how to prepare. The following pointers contain the basics:
- Come with an open heart and a curious mind.
- Bring any sincere questions but leave any answers or agendas at home.
- Be open to receiving an awakening transmission during the event.
- Prior to the event, practice being awareness itself. Try to become like a window.
- When you arrive, please find a seat and sit quietly. There will be time to socialize at the end of the gathering.
Follow these pointers and you'll be ready to drop into the enlightened state of being with the group, adding your presence to the shared awareness of awakened consciousness that occurs at these gatherings.
Feedback from Attendees
"Stephen’s ability to transmit energy is quite a unique experience and creates a very calming and dynamic meditation. For me, one of the best parts of the evening is sitting in the silence that is created during and after the meditation. This is something to be experienced rather than described! I also appreciate having the opportunity to ask questions about meditation and spiritual practice. On the occasions when I don’t want to come back from the meditation to put a question into words, (this happens quite often!), I have found the questions and the experiences of the other participants, together with Stephen’s insights, quite illuminating."
"Stephen brought down 'beingness' for us during the meditation in about three seconds. Any questions that I might have just disappear by the time that question period starts."
"There's nothing I enjoy more than sitting in stillness and feeling that pure light of awareness, which always seems to intensify in Stephen's presence. Thanks again for another evening filled with light!"
"A very special gathering. Stephen generated a palpable field of subtle energy that provided an introduction into some deep explorations of a larger reality. Stephen told us about 'bringing down the light.' This is something that most of us are unfamiliar with, but which nevertheless is a very real component in the esoteric domain."
-John Noel Inglis
"As time goes on, the silence and stillness in these meditations take a hold more quickly and become more all-embracing. They have become an invaluable aid in building trust for the process. Gratitude as always."
"Another thoroughly engaging gathering. Stephen is SO the real deal. And his unique ability to break down complex concepts, thereby rendering them accessible, is why I keep on coming back. I feel as if I get a little more in touch with true nature each meeting. We enter into this deeper dimension through engaged discussion and contemplative silence, under the (as always) steady knowing guidance of Stephen."
"Stephen's presence, clear articulation of esoteric knowledge, knowing, sincerity, humility and lightness of being - all embody Truth. I don't say this from my ego, but more from a felt sense of how my being feels during and after I leave Stephen's presence - a calm sense of peace, clarity, and present-moment awareness. Stephen's talks feel like sacred, sweet heart-soul songs. I am so grateful."
"Stephen's work is truly invaluable during these times of much needed change. He's grounded, wise and compassionate, which make him an amazing spiritual teacher. Yet, what sets him apart is that he's also fun-loving and current, so he can relate to and understand the issues that cause us suffering today. Thanks Stephen for making spirituality so accessible."
