Dear SAND Community,  

A  lot is happening in our world as the pandemic spreads across our lives on a planetary scale. As we are cocooning in our homes, we would like to invite you to join us for a community get-together every Saturday at 10 AM PDT, where we can connect, reflect, meditate, nourish one another with our presence and create a field of resilience and mutual support. Each week we will have a different guest teacher who will bring their perspective and wisdom on the situation and help us connect and ground as a community. Let's remember that every crisis holds the seeds of birthing of new perspectives and new ways of being.

This coming Saturday we are delighted to have Michael Meade as a guest teacher. In this meeting, Michael will share deep wisdom and reflections on the crisis through psychological and mythological perspectives. “When a situation begins to feel like a matter of life and death, the underlying soul is actually close at hand and trying to get our attention. The core ideals of humanity are intended to serve as a light to follow, especially when the dark times come around and we become more exposed to the extremes of life and even to the touch of death” — Michael Meade's in Awakening the Soul.

This meeting will be open to one thousand participants and will be recorded for later viewing.

SAND is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit organization. We need your support to continue to offer quality online events. You can offer support by becoming a supporter or by donating via our website or via PayPal.


Many of you have asked us to create additional space where we can share more intimately in small groups. Half an hour after the main event we will convene again, using the same zoom link and password. Our intention for these meetings is to create a safe container where we can share what is alive for us, reflect on some of the teachings we have received in the morning session and help each other stay grounded and connected. These meetings will be facilitated by Zaya, Maurizio and Gail Brenner

Group sharing sessions will be limited to 200 participants and will NOT be recorded. You can join the integration using the same link that you have for the main meeting.
