Selfless Love is unconditional. It does not turn away from imperfections, whether they are our own or someone else’s. And in this not turning away, we and the world become healed, meaning undivided. This is the power and potential of Love. If we only loved perfection, we would never love at all.” ~ Adyashanti, Fierce Love (Q&A)

Healing Love

Love is perpetually in the air at Open Gate Sangha, and with Valentine’s Day approaching we are enthusiastically celebrating our affection and appreciation for you, our sangha members, who have served to inspire and sustain us in our mission to bring the teachings of Adyashanti and Mukti to the world.

To symbolize this sense of unity and connection, we invite you to join us on Valentines Day, from wherever you are in the world, to sit together for a Loving-Kindness Meditation and silently pour our love into one another (details below).

With Healing Love as the focus for this months newsletter, we have included Q&A exchanges with the teachers, complimentary downloads and video teachings, and product recommendations. We also highlight The Stream (our new audio streaming service) and give a heads-up about our long-awaited YouTube membership program which is coming very soon!

“There is a beauty in leaving the question open-ended, so that its response continues to reveal itself over the course of a lifetime. As I speak more to your question and risk ‘pinning it down’ to give context, please remember the importance of letting the response to your question live on.”

“This question is a deep inquiry, something to really sit with and allow to grow within yourself. You must get underneath your old ideas of what Love is and how it moves in the world. Sit in the silence of the question. Don’t jump to quick answers.”
Valentine’s Day Metta Meditation
February 14, 2022
9:00-9:30 am Pacific Time

Open Gate Sangha warmly invites you to join us and people around the world in a Metta (“Loving-Kindness”) Meditation on Monday, February 14, at 9:00 am Pacific Time. (Check your local time.)

During this dedicated time on Valentine’s Day, may we come together with others in this powerful meditation with the heartful purpose of spreading love and peace among ourselves, our loved ones, and the world at large.

To help with this meditation, we have created a 30-minute video with a starting and ending bell. Below are phrases that can be silently expressed during this meditation. You can add your own personal messages as well.

“May all beings be happy. May all beings be at peace. May all beings be safe. May all beings be free.

Let’s pour our love into one another!
Adyashanti on Sabbatical

An excerpt from Adyas message:

I look at this time away from teaching as a time to rest, heal, and rejuvenate.

I have entrusted Mukti (my wife and longtime Open Gate Sangha teacher) to assume the head teaching role during my absence.
