|Spirit House is a community of individuals gathering to deepen their spirit life as well as a place of refuge for this process. The cornerstone of the work at Spirit House is the Spirit Breath Meditation. This is a Vipassana based, breath centered meditation practice. We invite all members of the Spirit House community to participate in a Spirit Breath Meditation training. This training will enhance your understanding of the individual and community process at Spirit House as well as deepen your existing meditation practice. For non-meditators, the Spirit Breath Meditation is an excellent foundational discipline for your spirit journey. You might also wish to download our recorded Spirit Breath Meditation CD. The Spirit Breath Meditation CD by Elise Lorimer will assist in bringing the discipline of meditation into your daily life with the guided and simple to follow twenty-minute Extended Spirit Breath Meditation or the shorter 7 Minute Basic Spirit Breath Meditation.
All of the Spirit House offerings, whether an ongoing class, a single workshop or a visiting speaker, are aimed at supporting a conscious and thriving spirit life. At the base of this experience of spirit is a firmly rooted meditation practice. In the paradox of spirit life, the spiritual journey is a very personal and singular experience which finds its fullest expression through community life. It is often through the growing edge of the community that the individual experiences his or her ah ha moments. With this in mind, Spirit House offers spiritual development through community while also offering one-on-one support. One-on-one therapeutic counseling is available as well as individual spiritual mentoring.
We honor the individual journey as it intersects with Spirit House onsite, and in cyberspace. In addition to the larger Spirit House community, there are smaller in-house communities specifically committed to Buddhist studies and Isha meditation. Details regarding the onsite offerings, including the Buddhist studies and Isha meditation, can be found through the 'onsite community' link. Weekly updates regarding specific offerings and spiritual news are emailed to participants of the Spirit House community. Please do 'Join' the Spirit House community.
We know that your spiritual journey is 24/7, and we hope to help tend to your spiritual web life through our on line or cybersite community. Details of our on line activities may be accessed through the 'cybersite community' link. In building the Spirit House community, we share the many inspirational stories and endeavors of our members.
