what is satsang?

Satsang is a lively, ancient spiritual practice from India. During satsang, Shambhavi gives a brief dharma talk and then leads a relaxed, “anything goes” conversation about the nature of reality, self-realization, spiritual life, and all aspects of human experience from the most ordinary to the most cosmic. The conversation is followed by community kirtan. Feel free to bring musical instruments of any kind, or just bring yourself!


After you have attended two live satsangs or other teachings with Shambhavi, you are warmly invited to participate in the live-stream Sunday satsangs. During Sunday satsangs you can talk to Shambhavi directly and ask questions via Zoom, our live-stream video platform.

In order to participate in Sunday satsang, join our monthly, sliding scale giving program, Milk Ghee Ojas, or MGO for short. After you join, you will receive instructions for joining in on Sundays and also for gaining access to the password-protected MGO podcast page.
