Join us in welcoming Adyashanti in his return to teaching beginning January 8 with our Sunday Community Practice and January 11 with a free live broadcast.
This quarterly newsletter issue features teachings, products, and downloads on the topic of meditation and returning to your essential nature.
“Winter has come to the Sierra Nevada Mountain range where Mukti and I live, bringing with it snow, cold temperatures, and the unadorned beauty of nature shedding its spring and summer blooms and returning to its winter roots. . . .”
“Life is full of twists and turns, falls and crescendos. Even in meditation, one can be faced with a myriad of movements of body and mind, and surfacing emotions or gifts of grace. Born into this world of time and space. . .”
Reflect upon and ask your innermost spiritual questions.

Sunday Community Practice
Sunday Community Practice is an ongoing program that focuses on spiritual practice and how it can be lived in daily life. If you would like to practice meditation on a consistent basis, along with others who are dedicated to making enlightened living a priority in their lives, please join us on Sunday mornings.
Try out a single session or join as a monthly subscriber. Each practice is two hours and includes a guided meditation and a talk. Join Adya and Mukti as they lead these twice-a-month practices (three sessions this January).
The Stream on Adyashanti.org is an easy way for you to select and listen to full-length streaming audio recordings of single talks or broadcasts by Adya for a full month, so that you can delve deeper into teachings of your choice.
We have curated a collectionof Adya’s and Mukti’s audio downloads and excerpts under their websites’ Teachings Subject, Meditation. We hope that exploring these will help you meet what is unfolding in your own life. Find these below and on their Teachings pages. (Subjects and selections will change each quarter.)
A powerful and unlikely spiritual teacher has arrived, sweeping everyone into the shadows of its cloak. This teacher has begun to interrupt life as we know it, showing us the impermanence and fragility of our lifestyle and our way of seeing the world. This teacher goes by the name of Climate Change. The central inquiry we will explore during this gathering is how can spiritual practice serve this moment? Read more.
Mukti’s presentation will be devoted to investigating how spirit enfolds what is separate and informs what is uniquely distinct. She’ll continue the investigation with audience members during a Q&A session following her talk. Read more and register through Open Circle Center.
