Recommendations for Meditation Supports after 40 years of Practice

We all want to go DEEP in meditation, and I have found that creating your meditation space properly to facilitate you going into that innermost place, is a real grounded approach to doing just that. There just comes a time when you need your meditation space to really support your practice. It is something for me that has been evolving over the last 40 years. At first - it was just about sitting and meditating regularly but then it came to be about creating a space [...]

The Power of Sound Healing with Intention

The glory of working with sound as healing is that it is always available to you. You can literally start making a sound whenever you wish - whether outwardly, so all can hear, or inwardly - using the power of vibration and intention. Sound healing does not need to be audible. In my experience, sound healing or vibrational healing - is most powerful when constructed within your being and not audible. Vibration, whether through audible sound or intention, is most effective when wanting to heal the [...]

Know that you are loved beyond measure

Sometimes, when I allow my life to become over busy and experience too many demands on my time and attention, I forget for a little that the Divine lives within me and that I am an expression of that. I can get caught up in the moment. Luckily, I have created a habit of practice. I am so grateful for this habit as it allows me to go deeply into the experience of my Divine’s love for me and my love for the Divine. We are [...]

Falling in love with your Self

The spiritual path is really all about falling in love with your self.  Though that sounds like a pun on words, it’s a very deep understanding to entertain. Many people feel that spirituality is something they have to reach for. Something outside of themselves. This is a mistaken way of looking at things. Connecting with the Divine, which at the core of it, is the real you – is more about discarding beliefs, false identifications and patterns than attaining something. One could say it’s about accepting [...]

Why do we do seva or selfless service?

Most people get the reason why we meditate. They can understand it’s relevance to the spiritual path – going deeper into one’s own being. Also, with the practice of Mantra repetition, once they understand how these spiritual sounds affect us, they can easily see how important Mantra repetition is to our spiritual sadhana or path. But when it comes to Seva or Selfless Service –  people can get confused. Seva is the simple task of offering our time and talents to our highest ideal without any [...]

Abundance is yours….

Some people come to the spiritual path through working with Sanskrit Mantras to change their relationship with and experience of Abundance. So for that reason, I love working with people that wish to transform this part of their lives and to see the changes that can happen in their lives if they are willing to do some work. Often when they see the changes in their bank account, and also the shifts in their consciousness, they are hooked and they want more of the spiritual benefits. [...]

Claiming Your Centeredness During the Holidays

The holidays are a crazy time of year for many. All the hustle and bustle of office parties and buying gifts, the dread or excitement of spending time with family members. We sometimes can get caught up in thinking, yet again, that our source of happiness lies outside of ourselves and so we get slack and lazy with our spiritual practice. Ah! Samsara…. she’s so seductive. For others, the Holidays are a time of sadness. Maybe they lost a loved one during a past holiday season. Or they find [...]

Opening the Heart through Compassion for Oneself

Compassion is one of the main teachings of Buddhism. Compassion for other beings and for oneself. We can be so hard on ourselves which makes it difficult for our heart to open. When we show ourselves compassion in the face of the startling clarity of self-introspection when we love all that stuff inside us that disappoints. When we truly have the patience for our own shortcomings and subsequent bruised ego – only then can we really be there and have compassion for others. Only then can [...]

Dismantling the Debris

Our true nature is that of perfection. In Buddhism, it is called Buddha Nature – the primordial bases for everything. But as human beings, most of us suffer from dualistic views of our experiences. Our ego twists and warps the energy of our life until it is a barely recognizable form of the reality of things. Our job on the spiritual path is to dismantle all this debris. These outmoded thought concepts, the faulty thinking, these facades that shroud our true nature – the masks we [...]
