Satsang at Hawaiian Sanctuary with Maitreya and Friends

International Kirtan Artist & Spiritual Teacher from Shanti Mission is visiting Hawaii for the first time.

Join Maitreya for a morning of music, mantra, unique style of meditation and more.

During satsang we create opportunities for experiential learning through direct transmission of spiritual energy, through meditation, nada shakti (transfer of healing energy through sound), chanting and through social interaction.

Our satsangs are multi-faith and respect all traditions, all Gurus, all spiritual teachers and all religions. They are very popular in Shanti Mission and a great way to come and see and meet community, find out what is on and feel the energy and vibe of Shanti Mission.

Maitreya will be joined by Wonderful Tabla Player Boaz.
Mary Isis (Janani Ma) will be sharing inspired vocals plus percussion and the amazing Vishaka (Venkateshwarra) will be playing Traditional Indian Sarod and Slide Guitar.
