Sadhana is the foundation of a spiritual life. It is the daily practice of attuning ourselves to our highest intent and tuning up our nervous systems for that mission. On this morning we will spend the ambrosial hours, before sunrise, utilizing the technology of mantra to cleanse our consciousness and relate to the infinity within and without.
Simply stated: we will be chanting a mantra for 2.5 hours before sunrise.
Join us at any time for as long or as little as you would like! Contact Anne Minter or Davi Brown if you have any other questions. If you have never heard of early morning Sadhana or never participated - it is okay to be a little confused.

‘These eight syllables are the “code” letters, the direct personal phone number connecting you, the creature, with your Creator. It has been said that a person can attain liberation by chanting this ashtang (eight-part) mantra correctly for 40 days, for two and one-half hours before sunrise (the ambrosial hours).’
‘Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. It is the foundation of all spiritual endeavor. Sadhana is your personal, individual spiritual effort. It is the main tool you use to work on yourself to achieve the purpose of life. It can be done alone or in a group. Sadhana is whatever you do consistently to clear your own consciousness so you can relate to the infinity within you. Before you face the world each day, do yourself a favor—tune up your nervous system and attune yourself to your highest inner self.
During what are called the “ambrosial hours” (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), when the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the Earth, the energy you put into your sadhana gets maximum results. Your world is quieter. It’s easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins.‘
