Satsang with Karen Kenney
WITH KAREN KENNEY
FRIDAY, MAY 17 – 7:00PM
My meditation teacher Eknath Easwaran says,
“When we are trying to change our life, we need the support of others with the same goal.”
He continues, “Those who set out to change themselves are like salmon swimming against the relentless flow of the selfish life. Truly, we need every bit of support we can get; we need friends, loyal companions on the journey. We have to do the swimming, of course; nobody else can do it for us. But there will be an easier and swifter passage if we can swim with those who encourage us, who set a strong pace and will not stop until they reach their destination. The burdens are shared, easing them; the joys are shared too, multiplying them.
In Sanskrit, this sharing is called satsang. The word derives from two smaller words: sat, meaning “the good” or “truth” or “reality,” and sanga, meaning “group” or “association.” Thus it signifies the seekers of the highest, banded together.”
As we band together in Spiritual Community – each individual is also encouraged to celebrate the inner voice of guidance and truth that is awakened within you. In a world where the predominant focus of attention is placed “out there” – Satsang provides an environment that affirms the practice of looking within and offers an opportunity to learn to trust the teacher that resides within your own heart and discover what is “true” for you.
We will start our time together with a silent meditation, followed by a short talk or story led by Karen Kenney and finish up with a group discussion and Q&A.
