To me, sadhana is a daily spiritual practice allowing time and space for an individual to turn inward.
As Yogi Bhajan (of the Kundalini yoga tradition) says, “Sadhana is self-enrichment. It is not something which is done to please somebody or to gain something. Sadhana is a personal process in which you bring out your best.”
Sadhana could be taking a walk in nature, doing breath work or yoga asanas on a mat, spending time meditating or chanting, reading and reflecting on a poem, journaling or simply watching the sun rise.

My alone feels so good, I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.
