Sadhana. The Sanskrit word itself has many translations, but in its simplest definition it means a personal daily practice. For me, it means doing something every day that connects me to my wholeness and moves me beyond my thinking mind. My daily practice provides a moment of suspension, a sacred pause of stillness so I may simply be instead of do, so that I may connect in with the highest truth in my heart, and be guided through each day from a place of deep connection to my inner wisdom.
