Sat Yoga Ashram

A Refuge for Seekers of Peace

A new kind of Ashram

What is an ashram?

Since the beginning of human history, the ashram has emerged as the archetypal form of sacred community. It is a school for the ascension of consciousness, a fountain of living wisdom, and a healing refuge that offers the nectar of divine love to all who visit. An ashram offers space for contemplation and renewal.​

A contemporary ashram

Our ashram is a sanctuary guided by wisdom, informed by current scientific knowledge and psychoanalytic insight and protected by Dharma, where you can shed the stress and armoring needed to cope with life in a culture on the edge of collapse. In the vitality of our

energy field,your heart and mind can open again to their full potential, and see reality with new eyes—and new hope. The profound and paradoxical teachings and energy of Shunyamurti will bring about a paradigm shift that can free you from the pain you are feeling in your heart. You will be able to recognize the perfection of the apparently imperfect situations you must endure. You will find new maps to navigate your way through life. You will find the hidden key to inner freedom and joy.

“An ashram is an avatar factory, a human butterfly farm, a spawning ground for angels.”                 

~ Shunyamurti

Ashram Living

An Existential Paradigm Shift

The Sat Yoga Ashram offers a way of life designed to optimize growth, creativity, and individuation. The social structure is designed to be protective, sustainable, caring, and innovative.

Daily life in our community is always different, filled with new cultural events, new learnings, new responsibilities and challenges, and new opportunities to build friendships.

Our wholistic approach to life grants the rare gift of breaking through limited mindsets. Every difficulty is treated as an opportunity for growth and self-refinement.

The key to the victory over depressive narcissism, anxiety, psychosomatic symptoms, or other self-sabotaging tendencies is the ashram’s dedication to truthfulness, mutuality, and the necessity and efficacy of sacrifice. Thus, we keep faith with the timeless yogic vows, the well-known Yamas and Niyamas.

Ashram Dharma

a refuge for Healing and Liberation

In order to be able to offer a refuge for all seekers, we abide by the Sat Dharma.

In this teaching, Shunyamurti explains why our ashram dharma is so important, for the community, for all who visit, and for the realization of our highest Self.

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.
