2017 – New Years Day Gathering – an opportunity to explore Gratitude
Most people love to cerebrate the coming year through the festivities on new years eve. We love to celebrate the new year by hosting a gathering on New Years Day, which we have offered now each year for the last 14 years.

Address: 10 Ashwood Close Glenning Valley ( take the Ourimbah/Palmdale exit off the M1/F1 )

Satsang offers the opportunity to be still, to recognise the silent call of the heart, this that is your own self calling you home to yourself.
What is it that your own heart really wants? What is this endless love, that is calling your name? What is this silent fire that is beckoning you to come closer still? Are you willing to dive into the depths of your own unknown fathomless presence? Recognise your own self and stay true to this discovery.
Join us for a Tuesday evening of Satsang, a special event or a full day Satsang Retreat to discover and have confirmed what is here always true.

Also the new Satsang book ‘The fire of Grace – Staying true to this – Satsangs with Yantra-ji’ will be available for purchase very soon – The launch will be in early December – we will advise you of the date in the next few weeks.

Weekly Tuesday evening Satsangs with Yantra in Sydney will continue throughout October and into the first half of November.
Then due to our relocation we will be offering
one-day Satsang weekend events and two-day weekend retreats. These new events will be held once a month, just over an hours drive north of Sydney in the beautiful area of Glenning Valley.
The first of these
one-day Satsang weekend events will be offered in December this year after the launch of the new Satsang book  and will continue monthly throughout 2016. Tuesday evening Satsangs will also be offered again throughout 2016 in Glenning Valley.

New Services on Offer :
Personal Satsang Consultations with Yantra

“Satsang for me is not something that I do, it is something that is offered freely through me, through the grace that lives this life, called Yantra. These conversations become a deeper sharing and opening between us, with many revealing questions and insights, a deepening of this one self.”
Often in the Tuesday evening open Satsang there is a theme or topic for inquiry and reflection. There have been many times where some of you have expressed a desire to attend a particular Satsang however have been unable to. To support you in your individual questions and deeper inquiry Yantra is now offering Personal Satsang Consultations. These sessions will offer the opportunity to sit in Satsang with Yantra on an individual basis, to open in stillness, in inquiry and deepen in your experience of self.

Special Satsang with Lisa Schumacher

( Tuesday April 1st 2014 ) :

I have been blessed to be in retreat for the past 5 days with Lisa Schumacher & Jared Franks. The gift of a silent mind and an open Heart is all that is required by you, for you, for another. To be still, to stop, just as you are … what a blessing !!!
Tonight ( Tuesday April 1st ) we all have the opportunity to sit in a special Satsang with Lisa before she heads to Byron Bay for open Satsangs and a retreat there, then she will return home again to America.
For those of you who attended the Satsang with Lisa last year, you know the depth and clarity of her presence, that meets you where you are and supports you in being home.
Lisa says “Satsang is the end of the search for enlightenment in the confirmation of yourself as One Self. Unfettered by mind activity and submersed in the reality of your true nature as eternal consciousness, you recognize yourself as the source of all, Freedom Itself.”
Please arrive at 7.15pm to sit in silence , the Satsang will start at 7.30pm, $20 at the door.
Please RSVP

When we really hear Papaji’s words “Satsang is not to do or undo anything” then we come together simply as we are, to tell the truth about what is already here, what is already free, this is the blessing and the opportunity of Satsang let us meet here as this that we are – freedom itself
In Love and endless gratitude for this that you are ~ Namaste Yantra-ji

Winter Solstice Gathering:

Tuesday evening Satsang closest to the winter solstice held in June each year : Tuesday 19th June 2012

Join us for this celebration, a time of inner reflection and ritual of renewal.
Winter Solstice is the time of seasonal renewal, the beginning of an emergence from winter, and from communal and personal
hibernation. It is the time of both internal and external renewal, as the Sun’s light lengthens and begins its return journey to spring, so too does the soul.

We assume that in an idealistic state there would be balance between light and dark. Light, ebbs and flows with the rhythms of all time, the rhythm that is life, death and life once more, the rhythms by which existence dances. For it is in this eternal ebb and flow of life, that we find the beauty that is hope, compassion, love, grace and light.

Darkness exists, as without it, there would be no light. There would be no opportunity to find the strength that dwells deep within us, to touch the face of compassion, to understand that we need not fear the darkness. For it allows us to find the inner light, and in understanding this, we find the path to wisdom that only comes through our comprehension, that darkness dwells so can we find the true light that resides within.
It is this light that becomes the beacon of our lives, our understanding and our being, it guides us through the darkest times and brightens our journey at other times, once found it is never lost for it is a part of who we are and the gift we bring to others.
Winter Solstice rituals and celebrations serve to remind us not to become fully engulfed by darkness, but rather choose to understand it and the gift it can bestow. To recognise that this darkness is not just the physical darkness of winter, but also the darkness that creeps into our minds, clouds our vision, brings despair and hopelessness.
The Light of Winter Solstice is as much about the outer light as it is about the inner light, that light which will guide us through our darkest times and serve as a beacon by which to live our lives.

You may like to bring something to share, a poem, song, flower, crystal, something to eat also please bring warm socks or slippers, a note book, pen, and a bottle of water.

Satsang – Special guest – ‘Mark Sanat Kumara’  – Spiritual teacher from WA

Many of you may remember that last year we were blessed to have Kumara hold Satsang here while he was visiting from WA, he is an amazing presence of love, laughter and presence… he will be joining us again for a special Satsang evening on Tuesday the 18th October..

A Universal Religion – the Unselfish Love Of Self.

Mark Sanat Kumara says, “There is the Self, then there is the Conditioned Self which believes itself to be separate, living in its own bubble of purposeful awareness.  Love, of course, embraces everything including both the Self and the Conditioned Self.
The Conditioned Self actually needs to be rather selfish in order to maintain its creative validity in this purposefully created illusion which we call duality.  However, a middle path between being selfish and unselfish is required at this level of awareness until supreme unselfishness –  or selflessness  – is attained through your natural spiritual advancement toward at-onement with the One Self.  In that great final moment there comes the realisation that there is only one supremely unselfish loving Self which is none other than The-All-That-Is.  Though you can if you wish still use your personality as if it were still a separate self. In brief, it is like having your cake and eating it!”

Mark Sanat Kumara is a spiritual teacher from England who now lives in Denmark,Western Australia, where he runs a meditation center.
