Blog: Facets of Spiritual Practice

My work with shamanism, together with long experience in mystical Christian and Buddhist traditions, has given me some insights into how to build and maintain a stable and nourishing spiritual practice. These posts consider practical ways to bring sacred awareness into daily life. Some of the topics I am exploring:

  • Bringing the cycle of the year (especially celestial motions and the trees in their seasons) into daily practice
  • Creating sacred objects to focus intention and attention
  • Using sacred chant to induce calmness and heightened awareness
  • “Soul Cartography” – mapping techniques to clarify purpose and bring coherence
