A self-proclaimed spiritual healer and humanitarian is visiting Del Mar over Valentine’s Day weekend.
In an effort to empower people to discover and cultivate love and wisdom, Sai Maa will share teachings during a three-day event at Hilton Del Mar.
“A global transformation and global transfiguration is happening right now,” Maa said. “I can’t wait to share with them that there’s a revolution happening.”
Born in Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean, Maa said she demonstrated esoteric healing powers at an early age.
At the age of 21, Maa moved to France, where she later married a research scientist and became the mother of two children. She created a therapy practice and became certified in naturopathic, homeopathic and osteopathic therapies.
Maa also became active in politics and served on the Bordeaux City Council, helping to reform health care in the European Union on behalf of the French government. During this time, she met and became a disciple of spiritual leader and teacher Sathya Sai Baba. Also a supporter of his humanitarian work, she, too, decided to dedicate her life to humanity.
Since then, she has taught thousands of people on spiritual, social and psychological topics through workshops, writings and other programs. Additionally, she founded the Sai Maa Vishnu Shakti Trust, an Indian charity that provides food, clothing, clean water and medical care to children and families and support to widows and orphans.
“I’m dedicated to humanity,” Maa said. “I’m dedicated to this new era.”
Starting Feb. 12, Maa will bring her teachings to Del Mar for “Wisdom and Enlightenment: A Valentine’s Weekend with Sai Maa.” Culminating on Valentine’s Day, the three-day event will feature various talks about life’s challenges and relationships.
Maa said she hopes people leave the event enlightened with a sense of freedom and peace of mind.
“I want them to hear that there is nothing wrong with them,” she said. “They are accepted. They are loved.”
“Wisdom and Enlightenment: A Valentine’s Weekend with Sai Maa” will take place Feb. 12-14 at Hilton Del Mar, located at 15575 Jimmy Durante Boulevard.
The full three-day event, including a meal on Saturday afternoon, costs $425 for general admission and $299 for students.
