Content ?

Strange to me that content, something so prized on the internet, is the same word as content, being satisfied. Of course, good content is satisfying. Yet, many of the times I am content contain a place of emptiness. A retreat center, a friend's beach house, or an organic farm dinner - all of these contain few possessions of my own. Acceptance of what I have - may be a prerequisite for being content. Maybe it is not what I contain, but what I let go of. Perhaps just for today everything is exactly where it should be. Namaste.

Every journey begins with a single step. Contact us today at amarjah@gmail.com.

Many circle the mountain examining the various paths without ever making the climb. We offer seminars, consultations, and support networks in the spiritual quest for awakening. We are not affiliated with organized religions as the truth is the same when viewed from the mountain summit regardless of the path to reach it.Theevolution of consciousness has brought us here - to remind of us of who we are and our purpose here. We are seekers who embrace skepticism, acceptance and the strength in unity. We are greater than the sum of the parts in a greater spiritual work.


Namasté = the light of the divine within me honors the light of the divine within you.
