What is Satsang?
Satsang is a Sanskrit word that means "gathering together for the truth" or, more simply, "being with the truth." Truth is what is real, what exists. So all there is, is Truth. Whenever something increases your experience of the Truth, it opens your Heart and quiets your mind. Conversely, whenever something, such as a thought, fear, or judgment, limits or narrows your experience of the Truth, the Heart contracts and the mind gets busier.
We are all equally endowed with this capacity to discriminate and experience the Truth. Thus, the true teacher, or satguru, is within you, and satsang, or being with the Truth, is endless. You have always been here in the embrace of your true nature as aware, loving space.
You have always been in satsang.
Whenever I feel a little (or a lot!) off, my first call is always to Todd. When I leave my appointment, I’m refreshed and reset and renewed. Having Todd in my life has made a huge difference.
“Todd is most insightful, gifted, knowledgeable and humble teacher that I’ve had the privilege to study under.”
Truth is too simple for words
before thought gets tangled up in nouns and verbs
there is a wordless sound
a deep breathless sigh
of overwhelming relief
to find the end of fiction
in this ordinary
yet extraordinary moment
when words are recognized
and truth is recognized
as everything else
