WHAT’S A SATSANG?
Satsang / satsanga / satsangam is a word that comes from Sanskrit, meaning to associate with true people or to be in the company of true people.
As my Seva (public service work) I offer free Free Public Satsangs and Free Individual Sessions. To assist thoughtful people to meet all that these intense times are bringing (health, racial justice, environmental and economic uncertainty, polarized politics, war, etc.).
The Private Visual Satsangs are an extension of that work. They are paid, private and with the same people over an extended weekly cohort. They provide deep personal and professional support during a transformational era that is history in the making!
WHO THESE VISUAL SATSANGS ARE FOR:
Visual Satsangs are for “True People”.
True means we meet each other as we truly are – drop the masks (literally and figuratively). No matter where on the emotional scale we are at the moment – joy, hope, boredom, worry, fear, anger, sadness, grief, etc.
We meet during a chaotic time in history – to do our deep Inner Work to keep ourselves calm, stable and centered. Together we support each other personally and professionally, as the current chaos impacts each of us in our own way.
As a teacher of process skills, I attract fellow practitioners (leaders, managers, facilitators, coaches, trainers, therapists, teachers, organizational development, change management, human resources, community organizers, advocates, etc.). I also attract creative and deep-hearted people from other walks of life. All are welcome.
These Satsangs are the adage of the oxygen mask. We hook ourselves up to oxygen first, then we can assist others in our lives and work. Our Inner Work helps ourselves, those around us, and is a contribution to humanity at large. Perhaps one of the greatest contributions we can give. As at the deepest levels, we are all One.
BENEFITS OF SATSANG:

- Greater Compassion, Empathy and Understanding of Self and Others;
- Calmer Nervous System and Nurturance for Your Body, Mind and Spirit;

POSSIBLE RANGE OF TOPICS:
- Global, international, national, regional and local events;
- Business, career, right livelihood and finances;
- Health (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual);
- Personal and professional relationships;
- Empowerment and sovereignty;
- Left Brain (doing) partnered with Right Brain (being);
- Creativity, authentic expression and working visually;
- Subtle energy, clair abilities and kundalini;
- Ancestral connection and alignment; and
- Loss, illness, dying, death and beyond the veil.
We don’t always agree on everything. In fact, Satsang Members sometimes hold polar opposite views from one another. Which acts as a useful portal for deep inner work, on both sides of a polarity.
By visually processing together, we have the incredible and rare opportunity to be ‘let under the hood’. To deeply see inside the history, context and inner world of our fellow Human Beings.
In doing so our Hearts are increasingly opened and our Minds gain more nuanced understanding of the human condition, both individually and collectively.
As a long-time Facilitator, that’s something I strongly believe we need more of in the world nowadays!
Satsangs are held weekly via 2-Hour Zoom sessions.
Each session begins with 10 minutes of Meditation.
In the first 7 sessions, I introduce and demo our range of tools and approaches, applying them to what members bring forth.
After familiarity with the tools is established, we shift into an emergent structure – organically working with what arises with those tools.
Each session is co-created by the members and by what is most ‘up’. Time is shared evenly among members over the course of the Satsang.
I am a Whole Brain advocate. We work with both our Left Brains (mind, logical, rational, masculine, doing and conscious) and our Right Brains (heart, belly, emotional, intuitive, feminine, being and subconscious). The marriage of both brings calm, stability, wisdom, maturity and true strength.
As a seasoned Process Facilitator and Coach, I have many tools and modalities to help us meet what arises.
Working Visually: I work visually using a drawing tablet. Most of these protocols (with the exception of meditation) are done visually as I spontaneously scribe what Satsang members bring forth.
Meditation: soothing mental chatter and settling the nervous system.
Self Inquiry: respectfully meeting what is and what arises to balance.
Systemic Constellation: a spatial/visual way of relating to people, places, things, events, etc.
AlphaMind: a creative, fun and efficient way to interact with your subconscious.
Orphan Rescue: a loving way to integrate parts that have been lost, forgotten or abandoned.
Polarity Squares: the art of reclaiming our individual and collective shadows.
Future Selves: timeline allies to tap into for wisdom, advice and love.
Magnetism Maps: visioning tools to focus on what is desired (solo, pair, group, planet and galaxy).
Alignment Maps: deep tools to assist with the excavation of beliefs and honing your focus.
Take Action Plan: organize your beings and doings into one central game plan.
Satsangs are conducted via live web conference technology. Each week we connect via Zoom. To participate, you need a computer with decent internet speed. Phone apps and dial-in numbers are also available. All sessions are video and mp3 recorded for easy replay (should you miss a gathering or want to re-listen). Recordings are only shared with members (no public distribution). We also have a private online forum, which allows us to communicate.
ABOUT FACILITATOR – CHRISTINA MERKLEY:
With a Masters Degree in Organizational Development & Transformation (ODT), I began my visual consulting career in the San Francisco Bay area in the mid-90s, traveling extensively throughout North America and Europe.
I honed my early skills in graphic recording, facilitation and coaching working for corporate clients including Hewlett-Packard, eBay, Stanford University, British Broadcast Corp (BBC), The Institute for the Future and the American Institute of CPAs.
Through my SHIFT-IT School, I’ve trained thousands in all aspects of working visually (Studio Work, Graphic Recording, Graphic Facilitation and Graphic Coaching). Many of the notable names in this niche industry have been or are my clients and students.
I’ve been an early innovator in the Visual Coaching niche, broadening the reach of visual methods into deeper, more intimate work with individuals, partners and small processing groups. I mentor other practitioners in my tools via Visual Coach Certification, and have a vibrant international Private Practice.
Well-versed in many process modalities: Strategic Planning, Visioning, Scenarios, Team Performance, Conflict Resolution, Appreciative Inquiry, Alchemical Hypnotherapy, NLP, Voice Dialogue, Trauma and Attachment, Parts Work, BodyTalk, Shamanic Journeying and Systemic Constellations, to name a few.
In 2009, I experienced a Kundalini Awakening that heightened my intuitive, mediumistic and energy abilities, which continue to unfold. Shakti is increasingly shifting my work and service into non-dual Visual Satsangs with Self Inquiry.
My awakening is not special – we are all awakening. We help walk each other back home during these catalytic times.
I live in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, Canada and work online with clients globally. With Presley, my sweet-natured chihuahua, by my side.
