The clearer we get spiritually, the more there will be a natural inclination towards embodying boundlessness, love, and wisdom within our humanity.” ~ Adyashanti, Our Orientation to Life
January 2022 News & Offerings
What Is Most Important Now?
Bare trees in the snow
Another new calendar year presents itself, uncharted and ripe with possibility. The twists and turns of the last few years have provided us all with plentiful opportunities to put our assumptions to the test, and deepen our connection with what is truly important. For this we are grateful.

In our first newsletter of the year, we feature an article by Jerilyn Munyon, Executive Director of Open Gate Sangha. Jerilyn is a dedicated student of Adyashanti and long-time practitioner of Aikido (the martial art of peace). In her article, Jerilyn reflects on her experience of the past year, and shares her choice of a personal practice/inquiry for the coming year.

This January issue also highlights The Stream! (our new streaming subscription service) and offers complimentary downloads and teachings, along with featured product recommendations on this month’s subject: Only Now.
“As I look out into 2022, there is such a strange feeling: What am I looking towards? For the past two years, it seems every thought or plan for the future has been written in disappearing ink. Adjust, cancel, pivot, rearrange, scale down, there is no word-of-the-day that really captures the experience. As always, the layers are infinite in our service of truth. So, the question arises, what is most important now?

For many years, I have had the tradition of choosing a word/principle to be both my inquiry and practice for the year. . . .
True Heart by Linda Holiday Sensei
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.
