–Pema Chödrön from When Things Fall Apart
If you are new to meditation or getting back into it…
…this quick reference guide is the busy person’s go-to mindfulness meditation manual that flows nicely and builds intuitively. It will put you at ease and get you on the right path.
My two mentors have their respective roots in the ancient Yogi traditions of India and the ancient Shaman traditions of the indigenous peoples of the Andes Mountains. You get to benefit from sources of information that were cultivated over thousands of years!
Meditation has forever changed my life and continues to help me realize the expansiveness of the human condition. Most of my adult life I’ve exposed myself to higher education, self-help books, individual therapy, group therapy, couples therapy, you name it… and I can honestly say that nothing has advanced my personal growth, maturity, and spiritual connection like my daily meditation practice.

Human Auras and Healing
Do Aura’s Exist? YES, science confirms this!
Now that modern science has caught up with what the ancients have always known, we can confidently say that all living things have an aura that gives off a VISIBLE AND MEASURABLE electromagnetic energy as a result of their biological processes. Some of us lucky ones even possess the ability to see auras, and now scientific equipment and computers allows the rest of us to “see” it as well.
The color and size of a person’s aura is often used to indicate mental and physical health by spiritual teachers, energy healers, and esoteric practitioners.
Through the practice of mindfulness meditation it is possible to use the aura to alter one’s state of mind and bring about healing effects to the body. (I go into further detail inside the manual)
Meditate Before You Medicate: Meditation can reduce pain by 40 percent, studies show…
In fact, meditation produced a greater reduction in pain than even morphine or other pain-relieving drugs, which typically lower pain ratings by about 25 percent, says lead study author Fadel Zeidan, Ph.D., of Wake Forest University School of Medicine.
Zeidan taught study participants how to meditate during four 20-minute sessions.
While meditating, the subjects had a hot, 120-degree pad placed on their right calves for about 6 minutes while undergoing PASL MRI scans—a form of functional MRI testing that better captures longer brain processes.
Every subject felt less pain while meditating than before their meditation training.
“What our study found is that you only need a small amount of training—just over an hour’s worth—to be able to meditate in a way that successfully reduces pain,” Zeidan says.
If you continue meditating regularly, the pain relief effects last even longer. “The incredible thing about proper meditation is that the more you do it, the more it becomes a part of you,” he continues. “There were prior studies on monks who had incredible amounts of meditation training, and they didn’t even have to meditate to reduce pain. It had become automatic.”
