About New Dharma
Sat Shree and Satyamayi, Co-Founders
New Dharma’s Mission is to cultivate a way of living that is in constant, immediate contact with the Divine principle that governs all life and by doing so create a new truly sustainable future for humankind through education, training, and demonstration projects.
New Dharma is a nonprofit organization operated as a 50l(c)(3) founded in 2009 by Sat Shree, New Dharma’s spiritual director and co-founder, along with his wife and spiritual partner, Satyamayi. The New Dharma community is located in Washoe Valley, Nevada the birthplace of Sat Shree’s awakening. In addition to being a platform for Sat Shree’s teachings and retreats, the organization provides a structure where students are given opportunities to expand their capacities to serve as channels and instruments for the divine.
Satyamayi has been with Sat Shree at every stage of the journey including the night of his awakening and materially supporting him during his six-year journey in India. She has been the driving force of the manifestation of the New Dharma organization. Serving as Executive Director from 2009-2022, Satyamayi supported the growth of New Dharma programs and retreats in the US, Europe, and India. Today Satyamayi continues supporting Sat Shree in the ongoing manifestation of the next phase of New Dharma by accompanying him at the front of the room, planning programing with Sat Shree and the Interim Executive Director, and managing Sat Shree’s life affairs.
