I found Shanti Mission in 2008 after getting clean and sober a year or so before. I was reluctant to attend one of their Satsangs (gathering of truth seekers) as meditation was something I believed I could not do. I had a very busy mind and thought it would be way out of my comfort zone. I was persuaded by one of my dear friends to try it anyway and thank God for that, as it was the start of a whole new life for me. Shanti Mission is a school for the soul and it was there that I met my Guru, Shakti Durga. I had never met a Guru before and so at first I was a little unsure of the whole “Guru” thing. It felt really good and yet my mind could not understand how I could love someone so much after only meeting her once. It was then that I learned about “soul family” and how we actually knew each other’s soul very well from spending many lifetimes together.
I started to wake up and after attending The Path of Ease and Grace with Shakti Durga my whole life started to change. I have since gone through all of the programs offered at Shanti Mission and am now a senior disciple, teacher and Ignite Your Spirit Therapist. There is something for everyone at Shanti Mission, whether its personal development, more truth, community, making a difference in the world, or soul realization and enlightenment. It is a place for your soul to learn and grow and to truly embody who you really are.
Get your shakti on!
