“It is the word which was the beginning of creation, and it is the word which opens the mystery of creation. The different centres of intuition, of inspiration, of evolution are touched by the sacred word.”
~ Hazrat Inayat Khan
The literal translation of the word satsang stems from the Sanskrit term “sat”, which means truth, and “sanga”, which means company. Hence, the intention in satsang is to dwell in the company of divine truth. The purpose of such gathering is to uplift the soul to a realm of higher state of consciousness through chanting, meditation and/or the study of spiritual text. When a group of people gathers to chant the name of sacred deities, divine grace showers and blesses each participant with the bliss of oneness. The constant repetition of these names accompanied by melody and musical instruments helps to clear the clutter of the mind. Chanting sacred words is a doorway to inner freedom, wholeness and well-being. Satsang also helps to build the roots of a strong spiritual community in which everyone is welcomed and honored!
Maryz and Pierre have been hosting satsangs for almost two decade. They offer kirtan throughout Canada and internationally. The chanting is accompanied by different instruments, such as guitar, harp, oud, bouzouki and percussion… along with the sweet blanket of silence and meditation.
Resounding Joy – Satsang with Maryz and Pierre! Our community is truly blessed with the presence and dedication of this beautiful, multi-talented couple who warmly welcome you into their home and hearts. Their sincerity and enthusiasm for all yoga forms is a sacred quest that they celebrate with voice, music, motion and profound silence. Their Satsangs are not to be missed; I give them my highest recommendation. Whenever the opportunity to connect with Maryse and Pierre arises ‘seize the day’ - bring your joyful spirit and sing for inner peace.

" After experiencing a stressful event in my life, my blood pressure and heart rate were very high at 159/95 and a heart rate of 103, even if my routine settle down to normal, this rate remained high. Right after the sound healing circle, which was a very powerful healing experience for me, I tested my blood pressure again and my systolic blood pressure lowered by 30 points and my diastolic pressure by 10 points(they were 117/60 with a heart rate of 77.) I am so blessed! I have sent the details as I am hoping you will definitely share with the hopes it might reinforce the power of "taking back our own power" and using energy healing techniques, including sound therapy, to keep our own palaces and castles in harmonic balance with overtones emanating out into the Universe."
