Full Description

Satsang with spiritual teacher and author Swami Dhyan Giten:
TAO - The Way of Love, Happiness, and Wholeness

Satsang with Giten on Thursdays during November, December 2014 and January 2015 in Stockholm

Satsang with Giten is an opportunity for a direct insight and realization of being.

Satsang is teaching by silence, and during this Satsang series during the winter 2014 in Stockholm, Giten will talk about Tao, the ancient Chinese path to love, happiness and wholeness. Tao is simple spontaneity, living life according to nature, which emphasises teaching by silence.

Only through silence, the truth can revealed. Only in silence, the truth can be transferred. During these Satsang evenings, Giten will talk about the Chinese Taoist mystics to ignite the flame of individual awareness and insight.

Tao emphasizes hollowness and wholeness. To be empty inside, to be hollow, is the meaning of meditation.

If you can be nourished even by emptiness, you are in touch with the eternal.

During this Satsang series we will explore Taoistic concepts both intellectually and existentially like the difference between the personality, the psychological "I", and the inner being, the authentic self, the inner meditative quality, the inner silence and emptiness.

We will also explore the difference between being somebody and being a hollow bamboo, a nobody, and the difference between swimming against the current of the river of life, and simply floating with the river of life, just accepting life as it is - the essence of Tao.

These Satsang evenings begin with a lecture by Giten on Tao, and will end in silent Satsang.

Previous experience of meditation is recommended.

SWAMI DHYAN GITEN, spiritual teacher and author, has more than 30 years of experience in individual counseling and in teaching awareness and meditation. He is trained in both modern psychology and in classic Eastern methods for awareness and meditation.

In 1982, when Giten was 23 years old, he was directed by the Divine presence in a trance session with the American trance chancellor Lin David Martin: "You have listened to your intuition, to your true inner voice, more than most. You have been searching for the contact with the Spirit for a long time and now it is beginning to manifest on the outer plane. You have been gifted many times in previous embodiments and now everything will come rather easy for you. I want you to put your energy into the lives of others, because you can".

A spiritual teacher, who have counselled thousands of people, told Giten in 1984: "You will dissolve into the silence. All the earlier enlightened Masters and all the small Deva's are just here to help you to get enlightened."

He is author of the best-selling book "Meditationens Sång" (Swedish edition, ), "The Silent Whisperings of the Heart", "Presence - Working from within. The Psychology of Being", "The Language of Silence: From Darkness to Light" and "Song of Meditation - Photo book of the Life and Work of Swami Dhyan Giten (the English titles are available at international internet book shop : ).

COMMENTS FROM PARTICIPANTS IN SATSANG WITH GITEN

"Giten's work is of the beyond, it leads you beyond yourself, which I love."

- Prem Mukta, participant in Awakening: 1-Day Satsang Intensive with Giten on October 11 in Stockholm

"Satsang with Giten was totally wonderful!"

- Toshen, Stockholm

"It is so rare with this kind of silence."

- Prem Kalyani, musician and accomplished violin player, participant in Satsang with Giten

"Giten gave me life back. An awakening. I have seen the beauty in life, and I know that that this is the way.

I like Giten a lot. He is fantastic. The presence and impact he has on people. His wisdom and humor."

- Prem Mukta, Stockholm

"In some moments, I realize what an incredible opportunity Satsang with Giten is, and in other moments I fall back to the unawareness and sleep of the mind. I had never dared to take the step to participate in Satsang with Giten if there was not such a love. Since I began to study for Giten, a new dimension of awareness has developed step by step, which has transformed my whole life."

- Deva Emanuel , musician and student of Giten since 6 years

"Satsang with Giten is a rich and warm emptiness. I want to give Giten all love and my warmest thank you. Giten and the Satsang has given me so much. I have never been so close to happiness before. In many moments, life has become complete."

- Prem Mukta, Stockholm

"The silent Satsang yesterday felt strong. Almost immediately when we sat down in silent Satsang, I was filled with an energy so strong that it felt like I was surrounded by an almost physical energy field. Satsang danced, it was living its own life. It felt ancient, powerful and beyond control.
And in the middle of everything, a loud and wild laughter grow, which I had to fight to keep back. It felt like I would never stop laughing if I began.
When Giten sounded the bell that the Satsang was over, I had to concentrate to come back in one piece, remind the body of the frame, remind the head of the room, of the here and now.
After a while, it worked, and the effect was that I felt happy, calm and full of love after Satsang.

- Prem Mukta, Stockholm

"Even if I am not physically present on Satsang, I am always present in my heart every Thursday. I love these Thursdays.

- Prem Mukta, Stockholm
