Satsang with Shakti Caterina Maggi
LONDON – November 28th
“Often we start our spiritual journey believing we are looking for something that is away from Life, something that will protect us from conflicts and fears. In this way we end up looking for awakening as a way to dismiss our human nature and dissolve in a sort of spiritual version of ourselves, someway untouchable and seafe.
We might discover instead that Silence is already our birthright, that we always actually are a spiritual being , Stillness itself, and that the messy, wild, raw and innocent journey called ‘being human’ is instead the true reason why we appear as a human body. From our transcendental nature, void of any qualities and free from any bondage, we can meet this beautiful creation and bring the Light of Awareness into form, without the filter of the sense of separation”

Nobody is turned away for lack of funds. (Lo lasciamo?)
Life itself is a call towards the Self. Our daily life becomes the path towards liberation. Though manifestation is only an illusion, it is also an opportunity for awakening, an invitation to rediscover the Self at the center of our own humanity. In this sense, overcoming fear and illusion is to awaken to the extraordinary beauty of the moment, and to become a true embodiment of Consciousness itself in human form.
Life itself invites you to go through all those fears that seem to trap you into the human body and into the duration of a lifetime. From the conscious perception of the Immobility of your Being, these contractions, which are the same energy we call fear, are revealed as your own joy which is now free to radiate through form.
At the center of the egoic contraction there is only pure Emptiness, something that is mistakenly conceived as fragile and vulnerable. But it is actually Openness itself, only apparently covered by the illusion of being a someone.
From this direct perception, Life appears as an embodiment of the Absolute, and a precious opportunity to experience the Self consciously. As a Creator who experiences itself through its own creation.
Shakti has shared a message of non-separation among living beings since 2003 through seminars, meetings, retreats and publications. Her approach, while in line with the ancient tradition of non-duality (Advaita, or ‘not-two’), is contemporary. It invites each of us to live from the recognition of what we are, embodying this understanding, and radiating it out through our existence.
She has been speaking at the Science and NonDuality Conference since 2016 presenting her work on the integration of Awakening in daily living.
