Creating Your Future – One Step at a Time

There are four types of meditations that most traditions embrace; seated, standing, walking, and laying down, and in our work we practice all of them. After our workshops, many of our students continue doing their seated meditations at home. They wake up in the morning and the first thing they do is sit down to meditate. This is an ideal way to start the day. But does this sound familiar?

In recent weeks a number of people have contacted my office with concerns about the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe. Millions have fled their homes in places like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. These people are leaving behind countries torn apart by war and economic hardship in hopes of finding a better life elsewhere. The question many ask is: what can I do?
