About

Our Approach

An integrated non-dogmatic path

An approach to healing, transformation and Self-realization

Our approach recognizes the value and congruence of all authentic paths. We focus on meditation, inner work, study, and service to deconstruct the ego illusion, heal the soul, and realize the Self.

Awakening

Sat Yoga applies the ancient tradition of offering teachings that accord with whatever level of psycho-spiritual development a seeker has reached. A few people are ready for direct insight into the ultimate nature of the Real, and do not have any need for techniques or preliminary ego purification. Others require working through various limited frames of reference before they are able to realize pure awareness without boundaries. Still others require deeper processing to heal from the effects of past trauma and adverse conditionings, decisions in favor of dysfunction, and the acquisition of mind parasites.

Illumination

Whatever level you are at when you arrive, you will quickly learn how to access the luminosity and latent powers of your innermost Essence.

Liberation

The Sat Yoga approach offers many tools for overcoming inner conflicts, depression and anxiety, and psychosomatic symptoms, while developing your capacity for divine love, clear thinking, and empowered will. You will become liberated, first from ego, then from all limiting paradigms, and then into the timeless rapture of the Supreme Real.

The Four Pillars

Release unwanted habits and develop a healthy, noble, and mature character. You will attain peace of mind, clarity of purpose, and the capacity to function as an impeccable spiritual warrior. Through applying the four central pillars of our approach, you will easily discover your Buddha Nature of Pure Presence.

Meditation

Raja Yoga

Meditation is the core (non)activity of ancient Yoga. It is the immediate realization of the pristine joyous Primordial State. We practice free form meditation. Many will need a gradual approach to attaining full realization. The basic principle of this path is to accept your state of being unconditionally, pay attention to the silent space between your thoughts, and eventually enter into the deeper strata of pure awareness, undisturbed by thought or affect.

Inner Work

Kundalini Yoga

By understanding the various developmental rungs of consciousness, beginning with the egocentric stages, you will move up through the levels of soul consciousness, and into the vastness of the unbounded Self.

The accurate Kundalini map will enable you to stabilize at ever higher grades of power and vibrational frequency, culminating in the blissful chakras of pure luminous intensity. You will be redeemed forever from self-imposed limitations, pathological ways of thinking and acting, and you will activate your inner genius to its full potential.

Study

Gyana Yoga - Internalizing the Logos

The curriculum of our Wisdom School focuses on potentiating the cognitive capacity through psycho-spiritual study to grok the Supreme Reality. Our program synthesizes the insights of science, philosophy, and psychology, together with the ancient esoteric teachings of all traditions of the perennial philosophy.

Service

Karma Yoga - The Inculcation of Virtue

Through karma yoga, or egoless communal service to repair the world, we weave together all the threads of our approach.

Whether harvesting vegetables, helping build a home of wattle and daub, designing computer graphics, cooking a meal, or arranging flowers in the meditation hall, all our service is carried out as a work of art, with great care and love, and an attitude of joy and humility. Service is the realm of effortless and egoless action: it is where we walk our talk and live the teachings.

Exploring The Depths of Consciousnes

Dive into the Ocean of the Super Mind

Our approach is designed to take us out of the shallows of the ego and into the forbidden depths of the Real. In this teaching, Shunyamurti guides us out of the superficial into the realm of Truth.

Free form Meditation:

Our approach to meditation is free of all form. We do not use an object of meditation, neither external nor internal. Our practice is to simply recognize our natural state of silent presence that is always the substratum of consciousness and abide in this pure awareness that has no form. 

If you already work with forms of meditation, such as mantras or vipassana, or breath counting, you are free to use those forms here. We do not insist that people meditate according to some specified method.

We also call our style free form because Shunyamurti tends to employ wild and free forms of visualizations and guided meditations during retreats that have very powerful effects but are never repeated.

Brahmachari:

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.

Satsang:

Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.

Teleological:

Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
