Date: Monday, May 5th
Time: 6:30 - 8:00 pm. 
Location: 10023 South River Street, Truckee.  Laurie and Doug Bratt's home.

Satsang is the Sanskrit word for "gathering together for the truth" or "being with the truth". Whenever something increases your experience of the Truth, it opens your heart and quiets your mind.  We are all equally blessed with the capacity to discriminate what is Truth.  So, the true teacher, or Satguru, is within you. 

There is plenty of parking across the street from the house and on the street as well.  Please bring a cushion that you can sit on. (there will be a few extra cushions here) For additional information, please call Laurie at 775-250-5612 or Doug at 775-843-3700.

Dhyana Yoga with Oneness Meditation

Date: April 14th
Time: 7:15 pm - 9:15 pm
Location: Tahoe Yoga and Wellness Center, 10770 Donner Pass Road, #104, Truckee.

Experience Creative Intelligence and Tranquility through a practice called Dhyana Yoga. Dhyana Yoga is a system of silencing the body, mind and intellect in the form of meditation. Yantra is a geometrical representation of the Divine. There are different Yantra’s for different aspects of the Divine, depending on what your intention is. We will meditate on the Maha Ganapati Yantra, which specifically aids in the clearing of any obstacles in your life and is good for new beginnings. When practicing Dhyana Yoga, you: Cleanse the sub-conscious; Develop concentration; Clear the Mind; Bring about various stages of Creative Intelligence or union with your Higher Self. And after this special Dhyana Practice, we will all receive A Powerful Transmission of Divine Energies.

Oneness Meditation is a powerful transmission of Divine Energies that flows through the eyes of the Oneness Meditator, Catherine Scherwenka (photo attached). This very sacred Blessing helps to awaken the spiritual energies within and creates a neurobiological shift that naturally accelerates the Awakening process.

Oneness Meditation is not about any teaching, belief or philosophy. It is a secular transmission of Divine energies that is given in silence, which leads to an end of the feelings of separation and brings you and your community the experience of One Love, One Consciousness and Oneness with all that is.
