WHICH OF THE 3 GUNAS IS INFLUENCING YOUR LIFE?
In Advaita nondual teachings there are 3 states of mind, body and soul.
Each of these can support or block our path to enlightenment.
They are called the 3 Gunas, a Sanskrit word for the 3 Ropes. They are Tamas, Rajas and Sattva.
By learning to manage our Gunas, we can improve our quality of life, health and support the path to enlightenment.
Do you find that some days you see life clearly, feel expanded and open, can easily access your intuition and gain blissful epiphanies?
This happens when the mind and body are in a Sattvic state.
The mind needs to be Sattvic to:
- Feel peaceful
- Be content
- See beauty
- Meditate deeply
- Be mindful
- Remain calm under pressure
- Be intelligent
- Find solutions
- Be creative
- Interpret intuition accurately
- See things as they really are
- and most importantly, to be able to reflect the non-dual truth.
- A Sattvic mind is needed for enlightenment.
Can we help our minds and bodies to be more Sattvic? Yes.
Sattva can be cultivated, and these teachings show many practical ways to support your own mind and body to enjoy Sattva.
And what about days when the mind is restless, it's difficult to concentrate and there is a general feeling of discontent?
This is when the mind and body are Rajasic.
Rajas is needed to:
- Wake up and get into action every day
- Manifest your dreams
- Create and build
- Make things happen.
- But it can also be an obstacle for enlightenment. Making it difficult to meditate, be silent and even to feel happy.
- Rajas can cause great discontent and endless striving.
Find out how to use Rajas in a way that serves enlightenment and how to transform overly Rajasic tendencies into the joy of Sattva.
And then of course some days the body and mind feel dull and tired, laziness takes over, we read the same paragraph again and again but nothing registers.
This is when Tamas is dominant.
Tamas is needed to:
- Sleep deeply
- Rest when it's needed
- But it can be a great obstacle when Tamas is excessive because the mind simply cannot see things as they are.
- Tamas veils and hides the truth. Tamas can cause great suffering.
This class teaches out how to use Tamas in a way that serves enlightenment and how to transform overly Tamasic tendencies into the energy of Rajas.

Neale Donald Walsh, the international best-selling author of the Conversations with God Series, said after hearing her speak, "You belong on an international stage."
At the age of four, during a procedure to remove a tumor behind her right eye, she had a near-death experience. This experience gave her a glimpse of what Colleen calls "home" and describes as 360-degrees of peace, love, and okayness.
Colleen talks about being free of the body, being free from the suffering of having a deformity on her face and being free from crippling shyness.
Soon after recovering in hospital, she became homesick for the peace, the love, and the freedom she had experienced. She describes it as going from a beautiful paradise where there is no fear, no limitation, and then climbing into a tiny box of this reality and life-losing paradise.
By the age of 14, her longing for home drove her to consider following the exit sign of suicide, but in a dark night of the soul, a peaceful presence asked her to “Choose a reason to live that was bigger than the pain.”
She chose to live to find “Wisdom” and dedicated her life to this pursuit.
Colleen-Joy is a Contemporary Mystic.
