Our world is rapidly changing. 🌎 Between climate change, politics, and societal crises, it has been increasingly challenging to learn how to navigate the stress, anxiety, and dejection resulting from daily living. 🌀 Remembering that the purpose of our lives is to be happy has been slipping away more easily!

It’s time for us to shift our sense of grounding to that which is unchanging. Our Weekly Courses and CommUnities are designed for this navigating and relating. Beginning in September, these offerings will serve as the anchor of Knowledge that we need to be courageous and connected amidst change. 😌

There is a Course and CommUnity systematically designed for every seeker, both seasoned and new. Register, today! ⚓

A Mother's Love keeps on giving and giving...

The ungrateful's life keeps on taking and taking...

Our CommUnity IS Grateful and has expressed this feeling through Generosity, by raising over 100,000 dollars in under 100 days for our Universal Mother! 💚

At some point in our lives, we might wonder... Is there more to living and life?

Some of us may also inquire... Who am I?

Through our sincere pursuit of such Truths, the Sadguru-shishya-parampara comes into our lives and compassionately reveals the answers to our deepest questions. In Vedantic tradition, such Guidance is given freely and such an experience is priceless.

Still, out of gratitude and fulfillment, the student seeks to give back. 🧡 Guru Dakshina is an opportunity for us to offer our gratitude for the dedication-sacrifice-expression of our Guides.

Please donate generously to support the causes of our Guru-shishya-parampara.

There is immense suffering in Ukraine. We can help in some small measure by supporting the efforts to provide hot meals, bread, and fruits to refugees in Hungary.

Let us come together to help those in need however we can. 🕊️
