About the Satsangh
2014 Note: Our Satsangh has relocated to Lake Villa, IL!
Our vibrant group of long-time spiritually-minded seekers met together for four years in Stamford, CT, talking, praying, singing, laughing and of course—eating.
‘Till we get a regular schedule up and running here in Illinois, read about our founding and purpose, below.

A Place to Share Good Company. Real. Live. Face-to-Face.
In this wondrous age of online everything, opportunities to meet face-to-face with like-minded people are ever more precious—especially for those whose spiritual realities set them apart from more traditional experiences and beliefs.
With my colleague and friend Rev. Janet Lee Kraft, I’ve started a home-based Sangha, or spiritual gathering, in Fairfield County, CT. We meet approximately once a month, for about two hours.
More About the Satsangh…
Caroline Myss coined the term “mystics without monasteries”, an apt description of the experience of the awakened—or partially awakened—journey so many are on at this time in history.
This sangha (community) is dedicated to having a place to share mystical truths as they apply in our lives right here in everyday reality. We intend in every gathering to experientially access the grace and power of the Holy Spirit, known by many names in different spiritual traditions. So far, so good! Rev. Janet Lee Kraft and I are both musicians, and devotional music from an interfaith perspective always plays a central role.
At this critical time in the evolution of consciousness on this planet, this ministry is committed to bringing illumination to all who are seeking to elevate their own awareness, and to experience their direct connection with all that is. We know that for every transformation of consciousness, for every freedom won from the bondage of the small self, not only we, but the entire field of consciousness is moved forward.
About the Word “Sangha”
While the word sangha is associated with Buddhist communities, and satsangh (or satsang) has roots in two Indian traditions. We (neither Buddhist nor Indian) were drawn to the tern simply because it expresses a sense of spiritual community in a way for which there isn’t an English equivalent. Sat means Truth and sangha means community, or, “those with whom we associate.”
Traditional satsanghs are question & answer sessions with a spiritual teacher. But another translation for satsangh is simply: “good company.”
Keeping good company is the means by which we maintain our spiritual health. This sangha, or community, is a place to experience the power of healing prayer, the enrichment of noble thoughts, the legacy of the great Masters who have illuminated the way to Truth, and the effect of elevated vibrations on our lives.
