Our ways to engage with reality

We will not fix you, but with love, trust, and acceptance will we hold space and growtogether.
What does joining Samaṇa look like?
Most of our time is spent learning about the "outer world": physics, math and biology; a job to develop a new product.
Not a lot of time is spent on Inner Work: Work that brings us in touch with ourselves.

With a weekly time commitment of 3-4 hours you begin to:
  • Harmonize the relationship you have with yourself and others and to infuse these encounters with magic.
  • Allow to integrate your emotional wounds into your being.
  • Allow to transcend your being.
  • Bring forth your own truth and to live our life in accord with that.
