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 maunasangha.com and Facebook page Mauna Sangha. They offer monthly satsangs, which can be joined via Skype, 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.


Caroline Cavelti


At this time in our history, when energies on the planet are so intense, many of us feel overwhelmed, frightened, confused. We don’t know what to do. Everything seems to be coming apart. More than ever before, we are being called upon to rest as Stillness.

Caroline’s Still Presence is palpable. She was asked by Sharon Landrith to teach and now humbly offers herself as a guide to anyone willing to look deeply into what’s really true. With her integrity and wisdom born of life’s experience she will gently and lovingly remind you again and again, of what you really are and invite you to rest as That. And as That, you live life with equanimity, loving what is and knowing that all is well, despite appearances. She bows deeply in gratitude to her teachers, Sharon Landrith and Adyashanti with whose guidance she came to see her true nature.

Caroline offers support in your unfolding by phone or in person to small gatherings in Toronto.


Marlies Cocheret de la Morinière


In 2000 Adyashanti asked Marlies to teach the dharma, which she does with all her heart. Her love for dance; African, NIA and authentic movement permeates through all her work, where her purpose is to bring Stillness to life.
