Spiritual Awakening through Meditation
Some meditation is indispensable to spiritual awakening. In its various forms –such as sitting practice, prayer and contemplation – it speeds up an individual’s spiritual and personal unfoldment. It helps us integrate the various parts of the psyche. It develops great calm and concentration that lead to greater states of bliss.
Everyone wants that!
Meditation also brings us vast insight and understanding, the building blocks of wisdom. We use both Eastern and Western methodologies to achieve these aims.

I feel like I go deeper in each [meditation] retreat I do. There were many profound moments and I feel far clearer about my path and what I need – and want – to do going forward.
