New Year's programs from Spirituality & Practice

Happy New Year from Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

We are delighted to announce that we have a new series of e-courses on Spirituality & Practice -- 21-day programs designed to help you change a habit and establish a new practice, which recovery programs tell us takes three weeks.

As we wrote in Spiritual Rx, people come to the spiritual life in many ways and for different reasons — but most of us, frankly, are drawn to spirituality because, as a doctor might say, certain symptoms are "presenting."

So we've taken four common symptoms many of us face regularly and developed 21-day email programs to help you work with them. Each email contains a brief quotation from a spiritual teacher on the subject and a way for you to practice the thought during the day. Available on-demand (you choose start date and frequency - though we recommend the daily schedule), these programs are ways for you to jump-start your personal transformation in 2008.

Beating the Blahs - Get back your resolve and get over feeling stuck.

Dealing with Disappointment - Examine the causes and teachings of this common feeling.

Fear Busters - Quotes and exercises to help you break the fear habit.

Letting Go - Experience the freedom that comes from releasing things.

Sign up today and start on the path to personal transformation in 2008!

Current E-Course Schedule Coming Soon

We will be announcing the schedule of Practicing Spirituality E-Courses for 2008 later this week, so watch the website and your inbox for that announcement. These are the 40-day programs that run for specific times and also have Practice Circles where participants can share their experiences with the courses and provide mutual support.

We're planning more courses with spiritual master, courses on the world's religions, and an e-course on Practicing Spirituality during Illness. We can tell you that the first new current e-course will not begin until February 1, so you have just enough time to get in a 21-day course before embarking on one of those journeys!

We look forward to spending 2008 practicing spirituality with you. To remind ourselves and you of some of our core commitments, we've created a downloadable version of our Spiritually Literate New Year's Resolutions. You can get it here.

Salaam, Shalom, Peace,

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
