True compassion leads to a profound peace with the conflict that we still have with ourself and the world. It is the blossoming of our non-dual nature into the human form. The satsang will unfold though questions and answers to explore this topic.

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.
