Interviewed by Susan Lutz,
ATH Co-Editor of Organic Living

The Institute is a school of human transformation. Shunyamurti, the director and founder of Sat Yoga, began a practice of what he called Transformational Healing several decades ago. It is the union of meditation with a theoretical understanding of the human ego structure and its dynamics and a process of inner work, including self-inquiry, dreamwork, energy transmission, and classical yogic practices to attain purification of the soul...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A community bonding in the path of spirituality and the work of transformation and feeding it's soul with enlightment would be missing a step if it fed it's body with conventional food. Sat Yoga in Costa Rica is a wisdom and retreat center that offers a chance to open up the possibilities of one's own journey. Organic, delicious, and gorgeous food sets the table at the Institute and Radha heads the kitchen along with a tantalizing selection of cooking classes so the wisdom can truly be taken home.


Organic Living

by Mary Rivas

Most of us live hectic lives that make it challenging for us to make time for ourselves. Our thoughts race non-stop, day in and day out...


Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Taking a nature based vacation, or just taking a day to be out in the natural environment does wonders for your body, mind, and spirit. Being outside in the fresh air, viewing the colorful landscapes, and listening to the sounds of the outdoors, slows down your brainwaves, helps you to release anxiety, and facilitates relaxation. If you haven’t taken a “time out” with mother nature recently, isn’t it time you visited her?


Energy Medicine

by Donna Davidge

In our yoga practice, animals inspire us in our asanas—pigeon, peacock, frog, cat, and cow. As yogis, we are inspired by them in life as well. I recently had a woman in class who had a yoga mat with cats on it, and I had to tell her I much I liked it. Yoga mats now have so many choices and designs, but I had never seen that one. I told her how we had cats at our yoga retreat in Maine, and how they never posed a problem because even our allergic guests dealt with them. She said she thought every yoga studio should have a pet...


Animals & Pets

by Sandra Fazio

In terms of our own adult life – we, like our children, interface in multiple relationships (via spouse or partner, co-workers, friendships, neighbors) and over time we grow inevitably frustrated with anyone of them and may even start to retreat. Why? Maybe our energies have been zapped, we are feeling more disconnected, there is lack of communication, a lot of egoic agendas on the table, no one is listening to us anymore and we are slowly pulling away from our authentic being.


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: This article is great because it reminds us and gives us the tools to check inward with ourselves. If we don't check in with ourselves how do we realistically think we could be good role models as parents.



Family & Parenting

by Amy Lansky, PhD

In November 2012, I took my first-ever private retreat at Vajrapani Institute in the Santa Cruz Mountains. For two days, I was by myself in my own little cabin, alone with my thoughts, my Self, my dreams...


Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: This article is a wonderful "how to" recipe for approaching life with sacred intention. It inspires us to create the space for love's vibration to resonate throughout our beings so that synchronicity and serendipity can flourish.


Sacred Living

In the ancient practice of Tai Chi, one learns to recognize the subtle energy of the universe and to move within its natural flow to develop both defensive capability and extraordinary health...




Exercise & Fitness

by Trish Regan

I wish to share with you the most astounding experience I have had over 12 years of swimming with whales! Recently, during our Whales of Tonga Retreat in the beautiful Kingdom of Tonga, I experienced the closest encounter ever with a huge female humpback...


Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I met Trish several years ago at a discussion on her experience leading healing expeditions centered upon swimming with dolphins and whales. Knowing the infinite possibilities for spiritual transformation when in the presence of these magnificent beings, I enjoyed reading about Trish's experience in Tonga and the simple message delivered by the female humpback.
