 Creation Meditation Courses


Start Here!

Be Inspired!

To be inspired means to be filled with breath. In this case, God’s breath, life, the creative force! And that’s the whole point of Creation Meditation – to facilitate a connection between your creative expression and the Source of that expression.

Together, a strong ability to focus (meditation) and give expression to all that arises (creativity), brings you closer and closer to God within. Barbara Marx Hubbbard described it this way: 

“The more conscious we become and the more creative we become, the more we become like that which is creating us!”

These courses are meant to serve as a guide, as a support to the spiritual practice you are beginning, or want to begin. Even if you haven’t started a practice, a course can prepare you for beginning a home practice. However, work with the beginning courses first. You’ll notice that some are more advanced. All of the courses listed here are seven weeks long, except for Igniting the Fire of Your Creativity, which is a total of 9 weeks.

There was much preparation that went into the creation of these courses to best facilitate your deepest experience. Each course provides instruction and material, but without your commitment and dedication, your spiritual experience may not be as deep as you might hope. What you put into a taking a course is what you’ll get out of it. Dedicate to giving birth to yourself, to change, and to transformation, and it will happen.

Each course is only $149.00. Take a look at the testimonials to the right and within each course description. The material provided here has changed lives! Upon registration, you’ll receive an email with the first week’s instruction, and then a weekly email with additional material until the course is complete. 

Be prepared to commit two hours per week to read the discourse and complete the exercises. Unlimited email support is provided throughout the duration of the course you’re registered for. If you have any questions before, during or after registration, email [email protected]

Igniting the Fire of Your Creativity

Igniting the Fire of Your Creativity – (Nine Weeks)

“What makes a fire burn is the space between the logs, a breathing space.

Too much of a good thing, to many logs packed in too tight can douse the flames almost as a pail of water would.  

So building fires requires attention to the spaces in between, as much as to the wood.” 

– from Fire by Judy Brown

Often we feel blocked creatively. We want to paint more, dance more, express more. We want to feel ourselves more, be more authentic, and have the freedom to be ourselves with everyone. Yet, the riverbank upon which creativity flows is you! When you clear away the stones, the debris, the old thoughts and patterns that block the flow of your creativity, the fuller and more radiant your creative flow (and your authentic self) will be.

Each week for nine weeks, you will receive an email with information on that week’s lesson as well as a list of exercises. The nine lessons for this course are:

Week 1- Preparing to Come Alive
Week 2- Focus and Awareness
Week 3- Being the Observer

Creative Tantra- Advanced

Creative Tantra – (Seven Weeks)

“Sex is the manifestation of the driving life energy of the universe. Sexuality is an expression of the moving force that underlies everything and gives it life.”   –  Starhawk

 

When most people think of Tantra, they immediately think of sex or sexuality. Though this is the most commonly known aspect of Tantra, the ancient practice is wide and deep, including many forms of meditation that are both physical and non-physical, both sexual and non-sexual in nature.

Sex is one way to practice Tantra, while creativity is another means to experience the deep wisdom that a Tantric practice has to offer. A practitioner of Creative Tantra uses the power of creativity to unite with the universal energy in order to expand consciousness and arrive at wholeness. The word Tantra comes from the two Sanskrit words tanoti, which means expansion, and trayati, which means liberation. By becoming one with the powerful and all-inclusive sexual, creative energy of the cosmos – the Tao – Tantra yoga attempts to open awareness to include all opposing aspects of oneself, thereby awakening to the oneness of the universe – an indivisible creative expression of the Divine.

This online course will take you through the steps of reconnecting with your creative fire, fanning the flames of your creativity, and sustaining your relationship with it. Since imagination is such a powerful tool, this advanced course will use the power of your focused mind (which you’ve been cultivating in earlier courses) and apply it to your inner images. You should already have a regular meditation practice and practice of creativity.

Each week for seven weeks, you will receive an email with information on that week’s lesson as well as a list of exercises. The seven lessons for this course are:

Week 1- Shine the Light of Your Attention Inwards
Week 2- Activating and Connecting with your Creative Flow, Part I
Week 3- Activating and Connecting with your Creative Flow, Part II
Week 4- Sinking Deeper
Week 5- An Image – The Basic Unit of Creation
Week 6- Getting to Know Your Unique Creative Flow
Week 7- Supporting Your Creative Tantric Practice

Course participants should plan on spending at least 2 hours each week reading the discourse and completing the exercises. To begin, register for Creative Tantra Online by clicking on the button below.

The TAO of YOU – Advanced

The Tao of YOU – (Seven Weeks)

“We are part of a cosmic evolutionary movement that inspires us to unite with God.”  Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Around 16 billion years ago, something happened. A birth of light and energy, the start of something miraculous occurred – the universe was born! Over thousands and thousands of years, that energy, that creative explosion, continued to grow and expand and it created more and more of itself. Planets, moons, stars, galaxies, comets, suns, and dark matter came into being. The creative impulse that gave birth to the universe continues to create life right now in this moment. The breath, waves, clouds, thoughts, images, bodily sensations, ideas, visions, moods, and a host of other forms of phenomena are coming into and out of existence right here and now.

So, what does this creative energy have to do with you?  Well, you are a part of that expanding process that started 16 billion years ago – AND your role in that unfolding has something to do with helping the universe expand even more, helping the cosmos grow even more. By becoming creative, by opening yourself to the creative flow, you reconnect with the power of the Tao and discover how the universe is expanding and wants to expand through you!

The intent behind this course is to get you in touch with the creative life energy of the cosmos. More specifically, it is designed to connect you with the unique way the creative force is flowing through you. It was crafted to get your creative juices flowing and open a channel within you to allow the fullness of YOU to shine through.

This is an advanced course requiring a regular practice of meditation and creativity.

Week 2- Letting Go of Yourself to Find Yourself
Week 3- Softening the Mind and Opening the Heart

Each week for seven weeks, you will receive an email with information on that week’s lesson as well as a list of exercises. Course participants should plan on spending at least 2 hours per week reading the discourse and completing the exercises.

The Imagination and the Heart – Advanced

The Imagination and the Heart- (Seven Weeks)

The heart is not the seat of one’s emotional life but an organ of spiritual perception.” – Cynthia Bourgeault

The imagination is the primary means through which Creation delivers its message to us! It is through those subtle, soft and sacred experiences that the Intelligent voice of the Universe makes itself known.

It will invite you to explore your inner images and use the skills that only the Sage in you has access to.
