Sadhana, 2011

Sadhana is a daily practice of yoga and meditation done in the ambrosial hours, when the sun’s rays begin reaching the earth in the two and a half hours before sunrise. For the past 11 years, during the month of June, I have practiced Sadhana with an international community of over 1,800 people in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico. A personal narrative of watching the first light of day stretch out across the horizon runs alongside the ancient text of the Sadhana mantras. Read as a traditional codex, the book form unfolds to reveal the letterpress printed hand-drawn image of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains as seen from atop the Jemez Mountains in Northern New Mexico.
