Women’s Satsang: Stories of the Guru with Parvati Markus

July 17 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

Women's Fellowship Banner

Guru Purnima (July 13, 2022, full moon) is the time to honor the guru—the one who removes the darkness of our ignorance and leads us to the light. It is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Buddhists in acknowledgement of gratitude for the guru’s life and teachings. The perfect time for Maharajji stories! Join Parvati Markus as part of the Women’s Satsang, as she shares stories of Maharajii both before and after his death, as well as Pete Holmes take on spiritual FOMO.

Guru is the absolute Lord, Salutations to that Sri Guru



PARVATI MARKUS has been midwifing spiritually-oriented books as a developmental editor ever since she helped edit Ram Dass’ classic Be Here Now. She is the author of Whisper in the Heart: The Ongoing Presence of Neem Karoli Baba (Mandala Publishing, August 2022), Love Everyone: The Transcendent Wisdom of Neem Karoli Baba Told Through the Stories of the Westerners Whose Lives He Transformed (HarperOne, 2015), and a children’s book, Isabella Castaspella: the Happy Little Witch and Her Friends, co-written with Radha Baum (SitaRam Press, 2022). She has helped with spiritual organizations (as past President of the Board of the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram and Hanuman Temple in Taos, NM) and events (as a development consultant for the Global Peace Initiative of Women).

Women’s Satsang Mission Statement

The Women’s Satsang has been formed to help cultivate heart connection and allyship among people within the Ram Dass Community who identify as women, whether cis gender, non-conforming, or non-binary women. As an autonomous group, our purpose is 

  • to deepen into the teachings of Ram Dass and Neem Karoli Baba from a female perspective
  • to foster connection and mutual empowerment within the Ram Dass Community, and 
  • bring forward the wisdom of women for the benefit of all beings and the earth.

Our Values include:

  • Lovingkindness
  • Honoring relationality and inclusivity
  • Allowing for ambiguity and mystery
  • Celebrating the light as well as the dark, embodiment as well as ascension
  • Blessing the web of interbeing that connects us all
  • Respecting people over performances 

To register, sign up for the Ram Dass Fellowship, and check “Women’s Fellowship” under the Fellowship Group Options.  You will be added to the mailing list and will receive links prior to the event.
