"Gather together those of you who share high ideals."
"Brotherhood is an ideal better understood by example than by precept."

Yogacharya J Oliver Black founded Song of the Morning Ranch in 1970 and had the vision of creating a spiritual community along the guidelines of his guru, Paramahansa Yogananda. The Clear Light Community is founded upon these ideals in the practice of Raja Yoga as outlined centuries ago in Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. Yogananda's clear presentation of these teachings, as Kriya Yoga, is available as a home study course through Self-Realization Fellowship.


Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat, adjacent to the Clear Light Community, has facilities, including meals and overnight accommodations, available to individuals and groups. Ongoing activites include an SRF readings service every Sunday at 11 AM, and evening meditation and chanting Tuesday through Saturday 8 to 9 PM. Visit the Retreat Center Website.
