Creating Conscious Community

Experiments in vibrant togetherness

Since 2006 I have had the joy and privilege of sharing principles and practices of conscious living with countless friends all over the world. This has led to the emergence of numerous clusters of resonance and networks of clusters — groups of people inspired by similar values and vision. Now we have an opportunity to converge these groups into a conscious community. This is the online home for resources and recordings related to this evolving community.

Hi and welcome!

I'm Nithya and my team and I will be facilitating the creation of this conscious community along with each one of you. The aim is to co-create spaces and places where we can strengthen our capacities for a more authentic, harmonious and inspired life.

An interest in personal growth and spirituality from an early age inspired me to read many books and engage in deep discussions with friends and teachers. Not content with intellectual understanding alone, I began a daily practice of meditation at the age of sixteen and attended many meditation retreats. I later completed an MBA from XLRI, Jamshedpur and then worked in the corporate world. In 2002, I left my career and ordained as a Buddhist Monk.

After six years of living in forest meditation monasteries in Thailand, Sri Lanka and also various parts of India and the US, I was guided to live, learn and serve in broader ways than the traditional role of a monk permitted. With the blessings of my teachers I stepped out of monastic life in early 2008. I now share inspiring teachings in Happiness Joyshops, youth programs, corporate trainings and meditation retreats around the world. I have been invited to share these teachings around the world by leading universities, corporate and non-governmental organizations.

My aim is facilitating a shift from ‘seeking happiness’ to ‘spreading happiness’ through simple, joyful and practical teachings.

Is this different from the 3-year 3-month 3-day (3y3m3d) program? And if I am a participant in the 3y3m3d program, do I still have to pay?
Yes, this is different. The 3-year, 3-month, 3-day program is almost over. This is now a good way to continue to be in touch. Those who enrolled for Nithya's All Access Membership need not pay.
Do you have the option to join this community free as I am struggling with my finances?
Perhaps at this time focus on getting your finances in order. If this relatively low fee is difficult for you then presently your finances need your full attention. Community and vision can wait. You can always join the open/free sessions Nithya offers each month.

This is an entirely new initiative. No discounts are applicable here. You can avail of Nithya's other courses with your Mangal Mitra (Transcription) discount.
Do we have to be on Telegram to access information about this community?
In addition to Telegram, we will also have a membership platform where all recordings and community resources are uploaded. It is possible to be connected only through that as well and get updates through email. However, the more active "pulse" of the community is presently the Telegram group. So we do encourage you to join it if possible.
Are these sessions meant to be interactive?
Yes. These are all highly interactive and engaging sessions designed to strengthen our capacity to be together authentically with surrendered leadership.
