Wisdom Teachings for Awakened Living

Satya Graha

Satya has devoted her life to the deep inquiry of Self through the Wisdom teachings of Buddhism and Mindfulness practices. With simplicity and kindness, she invites us all to directly experience ourselves as we are...Pure, Whole and Free.

“Love says “I am everything”.

Wisdom says “I am nothing”.

Between the two, my life flows”.

The Mystery of the Sacred Feminine

What are we as Women? Really…

There’s a Divine mystery about us. There’s a grounded depth at our core while simultaneously a spirited, ethereal being.

We are like the nature of water. We are a fluid, transforming and vital life force. Water finds its way around any obstacle and can sometimes “put us on the rocks”, sometimes forcing us to take a deeper look at what matters most.

The dive beneath the surface can reveal a different dimension. Sometimes there is calmness, sometimes even more turbulence. Whatever seems to be arising, it is there for us.

Have you noticed that in the very middle of your life there is an undercurrent of Divine wisdom?  This is the feminine nature of intuition. The authentic way women share their instincts. It is inherent in ALL of us, not just a few.

We sometimes forget the power of the Sacred Feminine within us on our journey. It’s ok! This journey isn’t about creating a better version of your self. It isn’t about therapy or processing the story of your life. It’s simply doing your own work. Leaning in and saying yes to your intuition. This Sacred impulse is an act of love for the world. We lean in and turn toward what matters. What’s most important.

This journey is not to transcend our humanity, but rather to fully embody everything we have been offered as a vehicle for healing, change and renewal. Our love and intuition is a genuine and powerful force in the world.

There is a Divine mystery that invites you in. Leave all your ideas about yourself outside and step in. BE the mystery!

River Flow: Journey of the Sacred Feminine

Please join Sherry and I for a restorative and explorative day to nurture our feminine soul, to console our sensitivities, and to affirm our truth and courage as we explore together the onward flow of life.

Through guided meditations, journaling, sharing and creative expression, we will navigate the waters of our lives. The “Flow” of this retreat will connect us in a community of women centered in authenticity, creativity, and love.

Space is limited to 16.
On or Before September 1: $95; After September 1: $110.
