Celebrate community with meditation, chants, sharing stories and breaking bread.  Please bring a dish or some other food to share.

Satsanga is a yogic gathering to enjoy the company of like minded people who promote an environment of virtuous living. It is a time where individuals come together to chant, converse and listen in the spirit of awareness. It is an excellent part of one’s sadhana (practice) as it provides the time and space to move deeper onto one’s path. Sat can be interpreted as ‘divine,’ ‘truth’ or ‘absolute existence.’ Sanga can be interpreted as ‘to join,’ ‘gathering,’ ‘community’ or ‘association.’

rsvp –

Experience the oldest mountain range on the planet w/ like minded folk. Check out the big sky views and the mellow Shenandoah valleys below.  Hike through varied terrain, break bread 1000’s of feet above the forest floor, crawl around, sit down and stretch out on granite boulders. Chill on the summit and relax with a big fat seista.


This hike can be a strenuous challenge that changes from an ascending dirt trail with switchbacks, to maneuvering yourself through and actually scrambling over and under huge boulders. An understanding and enjoyment of the outdoors is recommended to join in on this trek.

What to bring: PLENTY of water (at least 2 liters), a bag lunch w/ snacks for later, good hiking shoes, layers of clothes, hat and/or sunscreen, toilet paper, towel or blanket for yoga, binoculars, camera, swim suit (for an after hike dip in the creek) and a sturdy pack.
