Structured, integral, deep.

Why Samaṇa

At Samaṇa, we believe that at the root of - both our individual crisis in loss of meaning and dissatisfaction, as well as our collective crisis of ecological destruction - lies the human mind.

Samaṇa embarks on a quest to change this.

What does Samaṇa mean?

Samaṇa is a Pali (the language of the Buddha) word meaning "one who wanders", or "one who undertakes a quest". It's also someone who's playful and explorative and someone who throws themselves fully into whatever they do.

The goal is not to be better than the other man, but your previous self.

– Dalai Lama

Who is Samaṇa for?

We've not known what to do and at times we've known what to do but not how to do it.
We've been annoyed with small talk and felt like our connections are shallow.
We've been in a place where something always seemed off, without being able to put our finger on it.
We've been overwhelmed by choice, frozen in place by decision paralysis, and hedging our bets.

Samaṇa helps by ...

Facilitating change that's possible, worthwhile, and lasting.

Teaching people to relate to themselves and others more deeply.

Improving emotional competence.

Guiding people in finding meaning.

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of humans as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

– Helen Keller

What our participants say ...

Good friends, companions, and associates are the whole of the spiritual life.

– Buddha
