    OPEN GATE SANGHA

    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.

    ABOUT MUKTI

    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.

The Antidote to Fear

From: Full Spectrum Wholeness

Loading the player...

The antidote to fear is to reconnect with the immediate sense of now. During this broadcast from the Peace Room, Adyashanti speaks about the fear that can arise from encountering the unknown. When we focus only on our fear, we can lose connection with the concrete reality of the moment.

Quotes from this Video:

“An encounter with an unknown often generates fear in human beings.” 

When fear arises, we often go into this state where we focus on the fear, and the fear starts to have its own life.”

“When we experience fear, one of the first things we lose touch with is the actual moment.”

FROM MUKTI'S RETREAT INVITATION

This year of Adya’s sabbatical has been an opportunity to cherish so many of the teachings that he has poured forth to date, and a time to allow your own wisdom and your living knowledge of his teachings to come to the fore.

During this retreat, I will be sharing pivotal pointers from Adya’s past teachings, particularly those that I have found to be most transformative. And I’ll be recollecting meaningful encounters that I’ve had with him as his student as well as resulting insights that I carry forward into my own teachings. . . .
