About this course
Meditation has proved to be the single-most valuable tool through which I have given birth to my Soul and a tool I recommend to clients and students. The purpose of this course is to offer helpful support for those who may be new to meditation as a spiritual practice and to provide additional support for experienced meditators.
Starting and maintaining a spiritual practice is dependent first on dispelling the myths that have been heaped upon us by Western culture's misunderstanding and misinterpretation of spiritual practices; and then on finding a style and format that works for you and practicing it. Here I offer guidance on a wide variety of spiritual practices with the hopes that you will find one or two that work for you. Detailed descriptions are provided for each practice, along with an opportunity to "try it on." Additional guidance is provided through the online discussion.
It is said that it takes twenty-one days to start a new habit. I promise that if you practice meditation daily for twenty-one days that something will happen in those twenty-one days that convinces you to NEVER miss your meditation practice. You will find it to be as necessary as food, water and shelter and you will choose to do it because you find it so life-giving.
