Adyashanti (whose name means “primordial peace”) is an American-born spiritual teacher who has been teaching for 26 years. His teachings include evening meetings, weekend intensives, silent retreats, live internet broadcasts, and online courses. He has taught throughout the US and also in Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, and Australia. More than 30,000 people in 120 countries are connected to his website through free email subscription. He is the author of eleven books.
Born Stephen Gray in 1962 in Cupertino, California, Adyashanti grew up as an athlete and competitive bicycle racer. At age 19, he became interested in enlightenment, began to meditate, and became fully absorbed in a quest for ultimate truth. . . .

Welcome to our newest quarterly newsletter! Several weeks ago, Adyashanti announced his retirement from teaching at the end of October to the sangha and community at large. This newsletter is a special tribute to Adya’s profound tenure as our head teacher at Open Gate Sangha.
Please enjoy the photos throughout this issue, along with the delightful and poignant slide show of Adya through the years (be sure to turn on the sound!), and several heartful messages from students in response to Adya's retirement announcement.
We hope you will join us for his last free live broadcast on October 4 (details within). Also included in this newsletter is an inspiring article by Mukti in which she illustrates her vision of furthering Adya’s teachings (and how you can help with this), as she moves forward as head teacher for Open Gate Sangha.
