My new Video course: Meditations on the Natural World

meditation course

I’m really excited to tell you that my new meditation course, Meditations on the Natural World, is now available.

Meditation can help anyone struggling with:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Health issues
  • Productivity
  • Sleep
  • Pain
  • And much more

Having taught meditation for years, I’ve learned that most people who have struggled with meditation just need to:

  • Find the technique that’s the right fit for them [there are many ways to meditate],
  • Manage to find the time [it takes less than you’d think], and
  • Learn how to create the habit [in this course, you will actually learn how to create any good habit]

A Healing Meditation from Molly

This is a meditation I led at Unity Church of Grand Rapids on April 20, 2017. Just four minutes long, it’s a great example of the fact that meditations can be short, and still bring peace and relaxation.

And if you have 20 minutes, here is a talk I did at Unity of Grand Rapids on the same day:

Falling off a horse and ho’oponopono

falling off a horse

How does falling off a horse relate to ho’oponopono? My riding instructor explained it to me.

“Horses don’t throw you, you fall off.”

Those were the words of my riding instructor every time I landed on the ground uttering the oft-repeated phrase, “the horse threw me.”

What she meant was that if I went off the horse, it was because I wasn’t paying attention to signals the horse was giving, or wasn’t seated well. Because if one is paying attention, and is well-seated, you will stay on no matter what the horse does.

I find this an apt analogy for how to go through life well. If we are balanced, discerning, and paying attention, we won’t be thrown off kilter by life’s bumps. And we won’t be blaming the horse, or other people, which is often the go-to reaction when something doesn’t go the way we want it.

This may explain how we got a leader in this country that most people are unhappy with. How did he get elected? Were we paying attention? Apparently many of us were not.

An exciting new book about Maya shamanism!

maya shamanismMy teaching partner, John Kralovec, has just released his book about his 35 years experience with Maya and Native American shamanism: Pathways to the Divine; One Man’s Journey Through the Shamanic Realm of the Ancient Maya. If Maya shamanism is of interest to you, I highly recommend it.

Here is the book description from Amazon:

Over the course of his thirty-five-year spiritual journey, Otto John Kralovec III has studied and participated in ceremonies with shamans and indigenous spiritual leaders throughout North America, Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras.
Now, he vividly captures his inspiring personal shamanic odyssey toward his encounter with the Divine, supplemented by the latest anthropological findings on the ancient Maya, to guide us on a path back to the Source.

Breathe to reduce stress!

Week 6 features breathing as a relaxation technique and talks about Bear Heart, which is why I’m sharing it with you. Bear Heart was a big believer in the benefits of daily breathing exercises for stress reduction.

You can access Week 6 under the Mental Wellbeing menu, but I recommend the entire free course.
