      Satsang means coming together in truth.
      sat=truth; sanga=company


      Our Center for Non-Dualism has gatherings each Sunday morning.
      Details about the Center, the gatherings, location, and times are on
      the website:

      Please visit the website for the complete calendar for descriptions.
      Revisions and cancellations are also listed there.


      Our community of meditation and contemplation is devoted to training
      and nurturing those who deeply long for the direct experience of
      union with the eternal, pure center of consciousness, the bliss of
      being that is one with the absolute reality, as the wave who seeks to
      remember it is one with the ocean. One word for that union is "Yoga."

      Yoga is traditionally taught, practiced and learned through a close
      relationship between the individual mentor and mentee, teacher and
      student, in a community of noble friends, known as kalyana-mitra.
      Guru is a force-field driven by grace, a stream of knowledge of
      direct experience which, though it may operate through a person, is
      itself not a person.


      The goal of our sadhana or practices is the highest Joy that comes
      from the Realization in direct experience of the center of
      consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the
      same with the Absolute Reality.

      This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga
      Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense
      devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement
      one another like fingers on a hand.

      We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti
      Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha,
      and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally
      converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage,
      piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.

      The activities are mostly in Fort Walton Beach, Florida or nearby
      communities. Most are at Abhyasa Ashram or are graciously sponsored
      by other people at different locations. While I seldom travel, there
      are a handful of other activities in other cities. Please contact me
      if you have any questions or requests.


      Please contact me to arrange private time to talk about life,
      meditation practices, or to receive individualized training, such as
      with meditation or breathing techniques.
