Enza Vita is the founder and spiritual director of the MAHASHANTI FOUNDATION. Enza Vita is also the publisher and editor of InnerSelf Newspaper and Woman Spirit Magazine. She has spent over 40 years of her life, searching and studying under many of the great spiritual teachers of our age and she was exposed to the wonderful writings of many others around the world. As a result she was able to discover the universal teaching underlining all of them and to distil and present a modern practical authentic spirituality that reaches beyond all religions, yet allows for them all to remain, as they are. "The truth I talk about is not limited to any tradition" - says Enza Vita, "but is found in, and open to, all true traditions".
Culminating in a profound spiritual realization in 2007, all her life's work came into a clear, sharp focus, as she began to write and answer questions for those who came to her ... which eventually became her book "Always Already Free - Discovering the natural wakefulness that we were born with". Her life is now devoted to assist others to recognize their true nature as that which is always already FREE.
"While it's true that we are always the Self" - says Enza Vita "if this hasn't been truly and directly realized, this knowledge won't do us any good. Just knowing that there is no gate to pass through doesn't mean that we are at the end of the search, not if we are still standing outside that gateless gate. Realization is not about you, the wave, realizing it is ocean. The ocean realizes itself in you and reveals itself to have never been just a wave".

Leo Drioli is a director of the MAHASHANTI FOUNDATION and the publisher and editor of Innerself Newspaper. He has been editing and publishing since the late 80's, launching one of the first national new age magazines in Australia, Golden Age, in 1988. The process of awakening is at the heart of all of Leo's work. He actively seeks out awakened teachers to interview for his publications, always keen to catch another perspective on this incredible journey to God we are all on together. Also a singer/songwriter, Leo is the author of "Every Moment's a Miracle" and his recently released debut CD, "Let Your Spirit Sing".
"Real inspiration is not an idea" - says Leo Drioli "Real inspiration is prior to all ideas, and allows ideas to be birthed. If you are seeking to manifest God's will in this world, in your life ... don't try to figure out what this may be. Simply realise that in Silence, God's will is birthed. And creative action always manifests out of this. The challenge is usually to not try to think our way through, but to allow even thought to be used by God. Knowing this, there really is no distance to travel. Simply allow and life will live ... through you and as you".
