Virtual Satsangs: Awakening Loving Presence
Once a month, Jeff Vander Clute, Yanni Maniates, and friends gather for a 90-minute virtual satsang (which means “the company of truth”) on the Zoom video meeting platform. The timing is intended to work for people in the USA, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and India. See the calendar down below for session times in your time zone.
In these online explorations of the true, the good, and the beautiful, we engage with uplifting spiritual practices, develop our capacities for loving presence, and experience empowerments of Love and awakening. Sessions typically include a community check-in, meditation, deep listening and heart-based dialogue, insights and discoveries, and always the element of surprise.
You may join at any time and come as often as you like. If you are unable to attend a live session, you may request the recording.
The suggested donation for each of these gatherings is 350 Indian rupees for participants in India and $15-25 USD for participants in North America and Europe. However, any amount is welcome and you may choose the amount that’s right for you. To provide scholarships for those in need, larger donations are gratefully received as well.

Our Guiding Principles
In our interactions with one another, we are guided by the following principles:
- We listen deeply and speak from the heart of enlightenment into the center of the circle.
- We honor that this is a sacred space for sharing and appreciating many perspectives.
- We keep our comments brief so that everyone else may share as well.
- We remember: “Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve on the silence?” — Sai Baba
