"Simply put, meditation is changing
my life in every way - physically,
emotionally, mentally and spiritually."

"My chronic neck pain is gone. Inexplicably, another medical condition has begun healing and reversing itself when my doctor said this wouldn't be possible. There's more happiness in my life and I feel a stronger connection to others. Small things don't bother me like they used to and as a result, my home life is more harmonious. I feel a positive energy in my life and an awakening of my inner voice which is helping guide me to what is ultimately best for me and my relationships, including my
relationships with husband, adult children, and aging parents."

"I cannot overstate the benefits I've experienced since I started
practicing daily meditation. My only regret is that I didn't start
meditating earlier in life!
"
WM, 2016

Welcome to the Saint Mary’s College of California
Office of Mission and Ministry Meditation website.

This is God’s project to help other people meditate and learn to use meditation for prayer, and to develop themselves. We envision it going to all our schools, and for the faculty staff and students, and that they also may learn to share this with their family and friends. And so the Schools of the Brothers may begin to spread this beautiful practice throughout the world, because Saint LaSalle said the most important religious exercise of the Brothers is to meditate daily.

CONNECT TO YOUR DEEPER DIMENSION
UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL


MEDITATION WORKSHOPS

Tarot archetypes have been reviewed before from a Jungian, psychological perspective, this year they will be reviewed from a spiritual perspective following Valentin Stomberg’s book, MEDITATIONS ON THE TAROT: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism.

December 7, 2019
Death, helps to clear away the deadwood of our lives so as to proceed unencumbered with our lives.
Temperance, learning to access the unconscious for wisdom and power to guide us in future development.

January 18,  2020
The Devil (Shadow), connecting to and examining our dark side, the part we hate about ourselves, or the greatest excuse we have in our lives for not having succeeded, working to release the hold of these attitudes on us.
The Tower, the Divine breaking  down false or selfish constructs in order to lead a person to start rebuilding in a more wholesome manner.

Date to be announced
The Star, the key is meditation which she will help us develop; if we but listen, the Truth will reveal itself in the inner silence.
The Moon, connecting to this archetype, enables us to open more deeply to the wisdom of the unconscious, despite obstacles in our lives; these two archetypes reinforce one another.

______________________________________

Please check this section in my web site two weeks before the advertised date to make sure there are no changes in dates. Thank you.  You can even email me at  cchavez@stmarys-ca.edu to double check.  Three more dates will be added later on.

As usual we begin each workshop with the chakra meditation, then proceed to the two archetypes to be covered on the date indicated.
All workshops start at 9:00 AM and end at 1:15 PM in Delphine Lounge, next to the bookstore.

Previously, we have meditated on the Tarot archetypes from a Jungian perspective to come to greater self knowledge and empowerment.  We continue a second round of meditations for the same purpose but from a spiritual perspective, guidance of the Divine within us.

I ask for $40.00 per workshop, more if you wish, but sliding scale if the price is too much for you; pay according to your circumstances. All enrolled students are free. Make checks out to The Chicana/Latina Foundation (or C/L Foundation); all proceeds go to their scholarships for Latinas attending college or graduate school.

MEDITATE DAILY TO BECOME BETTER AND BETTER,

    Classroom and Workshop participant comments

most important exercise of the day
"Even just a five-minute meditation can recall us to the fact that we are in the presence of a God who loves us with an overwhelming love. This is the Christian and specifically Lasallian heritage - in the Rule of the Brothers the most important exercise of the day is interior prayer..."

workshop cds are available
"CD's containing guided meditations to help you build your personal meditation practice are available at the workshops.
