If you are seeking some time to nourish your soul, to be in stillness within yourself, and to connect with like-minded souls in an inclusive community we invite you to join us. We will enjoy a guided and silent meditation together, music, and sharing around different topics at each gathering.
If you’re wondering what a Satsang is…
“Satsang is a Sanskrit word that means “gathering together for the truth” or, more simply, “being with the truth.” Truth is what is real, what exists. So all there is, is Truth. Whenever something increases your experience of the Truth, it opens your Heart and quiets your mind. Conversely, whenever something,. such as a thought, fear, or judgment, limits or narrows your experience of the Truth, the Heart contracts and the mind gets busier. We are all equally endowed with this capacity to discriminate the Truth. Thus, the true teacher, or satguru, is within you, and satsang, or being with the Truth, is endless. You have always been here in the embrace of your true nature as aware, loving space. You have always been in satsang.”
Join us as we explore this space together and alone.

Personal Retreats at Rumi Wasi: A Shenandoah Mountain Sanctuary
Members of our community now have a beautiful space to enjoy personal retreats, thanks to local musician Angela Blueskies and chef Helene Garovillo. From their website, https://angelablueskies.com/retreats/private-retreats-at-rumi-wasi/ : “In such a busy world, we all need to take the time periodically to shift into a slower pace of living, and listen deep within ourselves for guidance. At Rumi Wasi, we are honored to hold space for you to spend time in silence and spiritual practice. Ideal for one person alone, or a couple, our guest room is a peaceful retreat that will hold you in tranquility while you take the plunge into meditation, yoga, writing, and personal exploration, or a vision quest.”
