    ABOUT ADYA

    Adyashanti (whose name means “primordial peace”) is an American-born spiritual teacher who has been teaching for more than 20 years. His teachings include evening meetings, weekend intensives, silent retreats, live internet broadcasts, and online courses. He has taught throughout the US and also in Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, and Australia. More than 30,000 people in 120 countries are connected to his website through free email subscription. He is the author of eight books.

    Born Stephen Gray in 1962 in Cupertino, California, Adyashanti grew up as an athlete and competitive bicycle racer. At age 19, he became interested in enlightenment, began to meditate, and became fully absorbed in a quest for ultimate truth.

    At age 20, he began studying Zen Buddhism under the guidance of Arvis Joen Justi, whose teacher was Taizan Maezumi Roshi. During that time, Adyashanti also attended long retreats with Jakusho Kwong Roshi (a disciple of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi) at the Sonoma Mountain Zen Center. While working at his father’s machine shop, Adyashanti built a meditation hut in his parent's backyard and began meditating two to four hours a day.

    The Quiet Space of Openheartedness

    (Previously Broadcasted: February 13, 2019)

    True spirituality takes our revelatory moments and translates them down into our human lives. Without this application to everyday life, spirituality can become an object of ego fixation and experience-chasing. In this heart-centered broadcast, Adyashanti reveals how to open to the quiet spaces inside and pay attention to what we truly want our life to be about. As we orient ourselves toward openheartedness, awakening informs our very existence, and we become a wise and loving presence in the world.
