Dear Hridaya family,
We are very happy to share our most recent news and events from the community. This month we also wanted to share with you all a beautifully captured moment from one of our community Bhajans which was recorded earlier in the year. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Please also remember we can stay in touch through our website and Facebook page.
A MESSAGE FROM SAHAJANANDA
“To find a pearl dive deep into the ocean, don’t look in fountains. To find a pearl you must emerge from the water of life always thirsty.”-Rumi
In ancient Greece, divers from Delos were famous for their ability to stay underwater for minutes at a time. Socrates mentions them, saying that in order to understand real philosophy, to penetrate deep inside it and stay there as long as necessary, “we would need to be a diver from Delos.”
In meditation, we are doing the same thing: we dive deeper and deeper into the Heart, into that mysterious Kingdom of Stillness, staying there as long as possible. We hope that when we come back to the surface, the pearl of Truth will prevent us from being drowned again in the world.

Divine Feminine Workshop
On June 19th, Hridaya teachers Ali and Elena offered a Divine Feminine workshop, a very powerful event honoring sisterhood. A beautiful group of shaktis came together as part of a day of sharing, healing, dancing, and exploration of sacred rituals. Not only was it a special gathering, it coincided the first solstice full moon in more than 50 years!
Last month, the Hridaya Mazunte team was invited to a special 4th birthday party for Johan Osmar, our amazing cook Celia’s grandson. It was a wonderful celebration with Celia and Ana’s extended family following the school community’s efforts to raise money for his cochlear implant. There were many delicious treats and several piñatas! We will continue to offer assistance to Johan during his ongoing treatment and thank you for all the love offered from the community.
