Awakened Life Sangha

The Awakened Life Sangha is an organically evolving experiment dedicated to the individual and collective discovery, exploration and actualization of the non-dual Consciousness and Love that is our True Nature.

Besides being individually committed to a regular practice of meditation and inquiry, we are also committed to monthly meetings in larger groups and weekly online meetings in smaller groups. In these meetings we inquire into what it means to awaken to our True Nature and endeavor to explore what it means to manifest our deepest understanding in all the important dimensions of human life.

We are an international collective of people mostly living in Portugal but also others living abroad who participate through the Internet. You can meet some of us and read about our journeys and experience of the Project below.
