Develop Your Personal Meditation
InterSpiritual Meditation (ISM) is a universal, holistic and integrated 7-Step process. It is designed to improve our relationships, professions and service to others. It fosters profound meaning, purpose and happiness for our lives. We begin by honoring, harnessing and harmonizing our personal meditation styles. Then, we explore wisdom and techniques of great meditative traditions. Our videos, content resources, tools, mentors and support community help us to cultivate a mature and sustainable practice.
Here are the seven steps.
1. Heath & Happiness
4. Love & Compassion
Harness Your Personal Learning Styles
We begin by discovering our internal archetypal styles. Why? They are the inner lenses through which we perceive, process and interpret spiritual information and practice. The Spiritual Styles Profile Tool helps us to discover, honor, harness and harmonize our 12 families of archetypal styles. By doing this, we can fully develop our spiritual path and meditation practice. When we activate all our styles, we can actualize our highest human potential. These 12 styles are named in outer ring of the InterSpiritual Mandala.
Discover Answers to Your Big Questions
Next, we ask our big questions through the lenses of our spiritual styles. Questions are the fuel that energize our curiosity to discover the answers that will give our lives ultimate meaning and purpose, that will reveal our essential being and that will help us connect with higher truths that transcend the mundane challenges of daily life. The Spiritual Questions Profile Tool reminds us of our big questions and encourages us to search for the answers. Our custom search engine will help guide our journey of discovery with online resources tailored to our individual styles and questions.
Learn from Great Teachers & Traditions
Finally, we seek answers from 12 families of spiritual and secular traditions. Our custom web search tools help us to explore and discover the wisdom that will define our personal spiritual path and meditation practice. The inner ring of the InterSpiritual Mandala points to these sources.
Gradually, each participant will create their own personal mandala containing a comprehensive record of their personal answers, sources, and workbook-journal entries that define their unique path and practice.
