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

Mystic River

The Seven Streams

The Seven Streams

Come down drenched, at the end of May,
with the cold rain so far into your bones
that nothing will warm you
except your own walking

and let the sun come out at the day's end
near Slievenaglasha with rainbows doubling
over Mulloch Mor and see your clothes
steaming in the bright air.

Be a provenance of something gathered,
a summation of previous intuitions,
let your vulnerabilities
walking on the cracked sliding limestone
be this time, not a weakness, but a faculty
for understanding what's about to happen.

Stand above the Seven Streams
letting the deep down current surface
around you, then branch and branch
as they do, back into the mountain

as if you were able for that flow,
say the few necessary words
and walk on, broader and cleansed
for having imagined

All Day Women’s Retreat

Saturday, September 14th, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz

 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.
