Guru Purnima IAM Journal Writing
Amma LIVE from Amritapuri
Beginning on Guru Purnima
With the world continuing to struggle due to the coronavirus and​ the various social restrictions in place as safety precautions, Amma knows that her devotees around the world are feeling very sad because of not being able to see her in person. In order to help devotees feel more connected with Amma during this time, the M.A. Center has created a system to live-stream Amma's bhajans, meditation, peace prayers and satsangs by her monastic disciples.
This service will begin with a live-stream of Amma’s Guru Purnima program on Saturday, July 4, at 9:30 PM Pacific Time.
These live-streaming videos will then continue every Saturday from 4:30 AM - 8:30 AM Pacific Time.
Even though Amma will not be able to conduct her normal tour this year, the M.A. Center would like to offer you the opportunity to support Amma’s charitable activities, through these online events.

Journal Writing Course - July, August

Your Experiences During the Pandemic and the Ways Amma Is Guiding You

Savitri is an Olympic Peninsula Satsang member, has been with Amma since 1992, and is author of The Path of the Mother. She will offer some simple pointers for developing writing skills. These gentle skills, such as use of the five senses and other details, will help you express yourself in rich and full ways, writing deeply about what is in your heart. At each session, you will get a chance to read some of what you wrote in your journal during the week, to share with fellow devotees. And then listening silently with your heart, to yourself and to others.
This course is four 90-minute Zoom sessions led by Savitri Bess, and is limited to 10 participants. Please bring pen and paper for note-taking and a few moments of spontaneous writing.
Schedule: 7:00pm - 8:30pm Mondays – July 13, 20, 27, and August 3.
