GOING WITHIN - a resource newsletter to help people find their center.

With all the "noise" in our political and outer world these days, it is crucial to stay centered in our own energy, not allowing exterior forces to control our interior climate. Finding ways to get quiet, embrace silence, and become still are now more important than ever to our ongoing wellness. As the din increases so do the resources to counteract and negate influences that seek to create instability, unbalance in our lives.

Not only do the Twin Cities and greater MN/WI region have abundant resources for learning meditation, gathering in meditation groups, and space to get quiet, but online resources abound as well. is one of them.

I'd also like to recommend Christina Donnell's audio series that ushers one gently into a very deep dialogue with The Silence. See her banner ad below.

Alan Pritz is a wonderful yoga and meditation teacher I also recommend and seems to have the gift of bringing one quickly into a space of stillness.

I've not been to Journey Inn but I can certainly vouch for the integrity of spirit of its owners John Huffaker and Charlene Torchia and expect nothing less than a quality inner exploration experience when you visit.

Take the deep dive, go within, and find your own special place of silence.

In many ways what we are seeing outwardly is a reflection of the battle each of us is called to engage in inwardly. In Vedic tradition, the battle fought in the Bhagavad Gita is really a metaphor for facilitating the restoration of soul consciousness over material consciousness. READ MORE>>
