Open Guided Meditations – free every Sunday

Time: 10am – 11 Pacific; 1 – 2pm Eastern; 6 – 7pm GMT; 19. – 20. CET

I’ve been thinking a lot these days of what Clarissa Pinkola Estes wrote after 9/11:

               “Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times.”

That’s my motivation for offering these online meditations.

“May everyone have a peaceful heart and mind

    and grow in responsible and tender kindness

   during these uncertain times.

May we know our true refuge, and

   be a light shining the way for others.”

     Whether you are a newcomer to the world of meditation or a studied practitioner, Christine Longaker makes it possible for you to flesh out understandings that will make your practice more productive and meaningful.

Participating in her penetrating and moving group meditations has shown me not only the richness of her knowledge, but also the gentle ways humans can enfold and resolve longstanding personal struggles within a meditative life. Her sensitivity in helping me discover deeper layers of empathy, love, and compassion for myself and others is what all meditators seek and ultimately what our world needs. Above all, Christine Longer is a sensitive, caring individual, who knows the path we must follow. Her guidance is golden.
