Embodied Spiritual Practice
To support the launch of our Sunday Community Practice program (see more below), this month’s newsletter includes new articles by Adyashanti and Mukti on the essential subject of embodied spiritual practice. In addition, we highlight Adya’s new book The Direct Way in which he outlines specific methods of practice. And, as always, we’ve included free video and audio teachings on the subjects of embodiment and meditation.

Sunday Community Practice
Meditators
“My intention with the Sunday Community Practice sessions is to put more focus on the spiritual practice of meditation, and to have the teachings be oriented toward the various aspects of effective spiritual practice as it is integrated and lived in daily life.”
