Sarah Trelease of Sola School of Contemplative Arts gives a dharma talk on the meaning of Satya (truthfulness,) the second observance in the ethical practice of yoga. In this talk Sarah leads us on an inquiry of truthfulness as a personal practice within the context of subjective reality. The second part of this talk is a 10-minute guided breathing meditation (pranayama) that helps us align and listen to our inner truth and clarity.
