Steve & Bec


Steve & Bec were seekers and meditators for many years. The pointings of Adyashanti sparked Grace leading to recognition as boundless, timeless awareness. The love and wisdom of Sharon Landrith continues to provide invaluable guidance as this recognition eternally unfolds. Sharon invited and encouraged Steve & Bec to share this love and wisdom with others.

Along the way, Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Mooji, and innumerable other souls have provided invaluable insights and understanding. They are eternally grateful to all those with whom they have shared and continue to share this apparent journey.

Together they founded Mauna Sangha and offer support to others through posts on their website and Facebook page Mauna Sangha. They offer monthly satsangs, which can be joined via Zoom, in Dubuque, Iowa.

Jennifer Tyler


During the past 30 years, Jennifer Tyler worked in the field of holistic healthcare as a gifted, intuitive healer. Following the deep remembrance of her true nature, she was greatly blessed to encounter the teachers Adyashanti and Sharon Landrith. With beloved Sharon’s encouragement, and with gratitude and joy, she is moved to be a resource for the conscious unfolding of the natural state of Being.

Her teaching points to the discovery of the ever-present, uncaused Love inherent as our true nature. And to living AS this love, in the world, through our actions and choices. She is here to support, nurture and enliven the potential for recognizing the Peace at the core of our Being. With this recognition, we have the opportunity to create loving possibilities in our individual lives. We become the instrument, the pure expression of Life’s loving, fearless wisdom. Jennifer is available for spiritual guidance through private sessions (dokusan) and group silent retreats. Visit her website to learn more.
