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.
A Resonance with True Nature
Adyashanti describes the experience of resonance, and how to recognize it in a spiritual teaching.
Quote from this Video: “The experience of our true nature is not abstract. It’s not something that you believe in, it’s not something you think about. It’s a very visceral experience of being.”

What is your contribution to life? In this rich, visionary talk, Adyashanti urges us to realize how our consciousness is affecting the world around us, and how we are contributing to life at each moment. He reveals that what arises from the illumined heart is not a world-denying spirituality; he instead encourages us to participate in the world community in the way that is authentic to us. By bringing our knowledge of unity into our actions, our expression helps to awaken the creative capacity of all beings.
