Sunday Satsang

Sunday Satsang

“Satsang” is a Sanskrit word often recognized as a sacred gathering where true company can hold a spiritual discourse. We are hosting a monthly satsang for all those interested in learning, sharing, or simply holding space in good company.

Sunday Satsang will be held on the last Sunday of every month at 1pm. Marisa Atula will host, introducing the monthly topic, and mediate the conversation.

No cost, no mats necessary, no need to sign up ahead of time.
