True meditation has no direction or goal. It is pure wordless surrender, pure silent prayer.” ~ Adyashanti, True Meditation
March 2021 News & Offerings
The Practice of Meditation
Meditation is considered a cornerstone of most spiritual traditions. It offers a means by which to quiet the mind and rest in silent awareness. Open Gate Sangha invites you to make your meditation practice an important priority during this time of change and unrest.

To support you in deepening your focus on meditation this month, we invite you to watch The Paradox of Meditation and read Adya’s True Meditation Flyer (a concise and essential written instruction for meditation.)

You are also encouraged to download and enjoy the two complimentary guided meditations offered below, and take advantage of the resources we offer in support of an at-home meditation retreat. 
“So often when we learn how to meditate, we think were supposed to be exercising a technique that brings us to a quietness.”
~ Adyashanti
A Retreat-at-Home Offering
While Adyashanti is taking time off for a personal retreat, many of us in the sangha are also taking the opportunity to retreat at home by using the discounted resources here. As part of this collection, we provide a guide and structure for your personal retreat experience.

We invite you to spend an extended period of time in silence and reflect on the dharma talks offered by Adya and Mukti.
Look for some announcements in April for the teachers’ spring schedules.
