Each day we have the opportunity to wake up to what is real. In a time when confusion, stress and division seem to be running our society, balancing our minds in meditation and engaging in meaningful self-reflection can be so helpful.

As we move along the path of meditation and inquiry, we can save ourselves a lot of time by connecting with inspiring and trustworthy guides like the teachers featured in this summit. They point us in the right direction, help us ask the hard questions, and steer us clear of the pitfalls of self-deception.

In this resource package you’ll find a map of self-discovery based on the practice of meditation. You’ll explore how you can balance your mind, let go of painful emotions, glimpse your true nature, and begin to walk a path of kindness, compassion, and joy.

Letting the insights and practices contained in this resource package mix with your own mind will open up their potential to be of benefit. We are constantly changing, and what we place our attention on shapes our reality. May we choose kindness, compassion, and wisdom.
