We stand for racial equality and social justice. We are for finding actions that speak as loudly as words, perhaps even louder than words. And, we are for creating together a more inclusive Sangha experience for everyone.

Mukti’s name originates in Sanskrit and is most often translated as “liberation,” a term used in Vedanta and Buddhism much the way the term “salvation” is used in Christianity. Mukti has been a teacher at Open Gate Sangha, in the lineage of Adyashanti, since 2004. Together in 1996, Adyashanti and Mukti founded Open Gate Sangha.
Previously, Mukti was raised and schooled in the Catholic tradition and also studied the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda for over 20 years—two paths that have greatly informed her journeys into meditation, introspection, and prayer.
She holds a master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, a license in acupuncture, and a Hatha Yoga teaching certification. These backgrounds in body awareness and the healing arts, as well as her years of study with Adyashanti, largely inform her presentation style, her recommended inquiry methods, and her interest in the energetic unfolding of realization and embodiment.
As some of you know I have been dealing with an extreme physical pain issue for nearly 20 years. I am happy to say that in the last year or so the pain issue has finally been resolved. However, dealing with such an extremely difficult issue over a long period of time while traveling and teaching around the world has left me both physically and emotionally exhausted. And although I had wanted to continue to teach during this period of great challenge for the world community, it became obvious that l very much need a break and time away from teaching in order to recoup and recover in body, mind, and spirit from so many years of great physical challenges. So I will be taking a sabbatical beginning right after the Spirit Rock program on October 24 and lasting through next year. 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 . . . Read More & Watch Adya’s Video Message
