Traveling Satsang

~ Bringing The Center for Human Awakening to your city through satsang community meetings. ~

​The mission for this traveling satsang is to raise awareness of an emotionally, energetically, and spiritually intelligent paradigm for the world. This offering is of paramount importance at this time in humanities existence, as we find ourselves in the predicament of being in the clutches of more powerful forces of ego suppression, ignorance, and delusion than ever before.

This emotionally, energetically, and spiritually intelligent paradigm is called Sacred Attention Therapy (SAT) and is based on the life-long work of Richard Harvey, Psycho-Spiritual Psychotherapist, Spiritual Teacher, and Author. SAT is based on Richard Harvey's 3-stage model of human awakening. SAT is not merely a new therapy; it is the vanguard of spiritual transformation and awakening in the 21st century and, by extension, world change.

Traveling from his mountaintop Spiritual Retreat Centre, Cortijo Llano de Manzano, in Andalucia, ​Spain, Richard welcomes the opportunity to travel to your city, town, or village to share SAT with you and your community.

If you would like to host a satsang community meeting and have Richard come speak with your group, please contact us at [email protected] or through the 'Contact Us' form to the right.
