The Sanskrit term satsang means “in the company of truth” or “good company.” It refers to a community gathering for the purpose of sharing knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Please join our satsang and be in the company of others seeking to become more aware of the purposes and processes of life through the study and practice of yoga.

In this gathering, Nandita Selvanathan will lead us in an evening of storytelling and chanting. The teachings of yoga often use mythology and storytelling to express fundamental principles of the practice. In his book, The Yoga Matrix, Richard Freeman says, “classical myths from all cultures function as metaphors for life…They serve to awaken awareness deep inside the core of your being by stimulating certain emotions, experiences, and archetypes that may be forgotten or overlooked during daily life.” Myths and stories help us to embody the teachings, to relate them to our own experience, feelings and lives. The universal questions inherent in myth and the art of storytelling transcend time, culture and social status. They are a link between individuals and a powerful way to deepen understanding.

Nandita Selvanathan grew up in the holy city of Varanasi, on the banks of the River Ganges and has lived in Winnipeg for the last 20 years. Chanting mantra and discussing characters of epic myths like the Ramayana and Mahabharata were part of every-day life in India. Along with a degree in Microbiology, Nandita studied Indian Classical music and continues her interest in Indian traditions giving storytellings and teaching classes in Ayurvedic cooking, Kirtan and Sanskrit.
