Meditation practice begins at 19:15

Happy holiday! This week, I offer you three steps to keep our practice in the realm of the sacred (rather than self-help). The greatest benefits of meditation—wisdom, compassion, and courage—are often “left on the table” – but they are really worth remembering.

If you haven’t signed up for it yet, please join us for our free Building a Mindful New Year program, Dec 26-31. And if you want to start the new year off with a stable meditation practice, please check out our 21-Day Meditation Challenge which begins on January 1.

This will be our last newsletter in 2023. May 2024 bring peace in your heart and peace in the world.

Much love, Susan

    Thank you, Susan, for speaking right to me, for I wake up sad each morning. I will think of the three things you spoke of, as a way to work with this. I look forward to joining you and the other teachers in welcoming the new year. With much love and appreciation, Esther.
