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”.

Nisargatta Maharaj

The Spirit of Water

I'm spending more time these days at the ocean and the river stream near my home. I've noticed when I sit quietly and watch, there is a nurturing quality that arises from the water and the way it speaks to me.

There's this sense of being held; an intuitive knowing that there is a Divine connection between the water and myself. It's as if the water is informing me with every sound. Even the sound of crashing waves seems to mimic the humming of a Mother's lullaby.

I'm discovering how much the water represents for me the flow of the Sacred Feminine. It is primordial and beyond any measure of time, distance and destination. It simply makes its way past any resistance with a wisdom well beyond our knowing. And yet, it is indiscriminating in its generosity.

I encourage you to find a body of water and sit for awhile. Get to know her and see where she wants you to flow.

Please join Sherry and I for an all day Women's Retreat:

River Flow: Journey of the Sacred Feminine
Saturday, September 14th 9:30am - 4:30pm

Somewhere along the road."

All Day Women’s Retreat

Saturday, September 14th, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

 Join Sherry and Satya as we explore together this onward flow of life as it moves like a river. Its flow.  Its journey. Its constancy and change. Its life-sustaining. Its destruction. Its mystery.

Through guided meditations, journaling, sharing and creative expression, we will navigate the waters of our own life. The “Flow” of this retreat will gently lead us to the river’s edge. We will explore the nature of life’s inevitable twists and turns, knowing it will all flow through. Always carrying us to the sea.
