Meditations & Rituals for Conscious Living invites readers to reflect on weekly meditations that allow them to deepen their understanding of themes and practices that bring spiritual experience to life. The process combines reflective meditation - returning to a theme each day for a month, with ritual - an end-of-month ceremony that gives the theme substance here and now. Each month offers a new theme, with its accompanying ritual. Over the course of the year, these themes and practices provide a foundation for living each day consciously and with an open heart, creating a more alive and vital connection to the world, and to the sacred. The first week of January offers the following theme for daily reflective meditation: "Stillness is the ground of being from which all else emerges. It is within and behind every breath, every thought, every action. It is my starting point, my resting place, the home base to which I can return again and again." The monthly themes are: January - Stillness; February - Wholeness; March - Compassion & Lovingkindness; April - Getting Grounded; May - Mindfulness; June - Gratitude & Generosity; July - Oneness; August - Intention; September - Creating Possibility & Synchronicity; October - Paradox; November - Active Surrender; December - Living Consciously.
