The Course of Meditation is a celebration! We come to oxygenate body, mind, and spirit and to taste the joy of being. All human beings are looking for happiness. Every day, underlying our every activity, including at night when we dream, the quest to be happier is ever there. But the more we search for happiness the more it eludes us.

Satsang is simply letting go of imagining. It is offered as an invitation to see everything as rays of the same sun, the sun of awareness.The apparent entity, whether we call it ‘me’ or ‘I’ or or ‘ego’, is seen for what it is: a simple thought, a ray of awareness, without any independent existence. Realizing the absurdity that the ‘I-thought’ is the one conducting the show unmasks it’s dense reality, and what remains is a profound sense of well-being, the freedom from being subjected to the mental tyranny.
Originally from Tibet and rediscovered in Japan in the last century by a Christian monk – Dr. Mikao Usui, professor at Kyoto University – Reiki is a technique that is as immediate as it is natural, and that helps us rebalance and renew our sense of physical and mental well-being.Reiki is a term or more accurately a Japanese ideogram that means “vital force of universal energy”: REI is the universal energy behind the motion of the planets, the shining of the stars, the movement of the oceans, the blossoming of flowers, and so on, while KI is the individual energy present in each living being, whether human or animal, plant or rock.
