Monday morning online satsang. This time is selected primarily for the benefit of people in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia, and India when it is afternoon/evening in these locations, while it is 10:00am at Abhyasa Ashram in Florida (same time zone as Chicago). For login info, see here:
The current discussion is on "Life Here and Hereafter" by Swami Rama (the basis of this book is the story of the Katha Upanishad). We have an online pdf to view together through online screensharing.
If you are in the Fort Walton Beach area, you are welcome to sit with me in the ashram office during the online program. Most of the online participants are from all corners of the US and the world.
DAILY MEDITATION AT THE ASHRAM
In the tradition of the Himalayan masters, Yoga is seen as a process wherein we systematically deal with all levels of our being, such that body and breath practices are an integral part of, and are intended to lead to meditation. Therefore our schedule of daily practice times is designed so that you have time for Asanas/Postures, Relaxation, and Pranayama/Breath before and leading into meditation. Our/my approach to teaching is mostly one-to-one coaching on donation basis, rather than large fee-based classes as is the case with most gymnastic oriented modern physical yoga classes. Please let us/me know if you would like to schedule time for individualized coaching in any phase of the systematic meditation practices of our tradition of the Himalayan masters.
In loving service,
Swami Jnaneshvara ("Swami J")
