Starting today, January 15, through February 23 (40 days), people from all over the world and from many different spiritual/religious disciplines are taking part in an activity that will help to transform the world by transforming themselves. It's an invitation to commit to doing 40 minutes of some sort of spiritual practice or activity (whether it be meditation, prayer, yoga, tai-chi, walking in nature, or just about anything else that lifts and nourishes the spirit) -- whether all at once or broken up into shorter periods.
This is the Winter Feast for the Soul, which was started over the Internet in 2008. It's a wonderful way to be in community and communion with people all over the Earth, doing something in common to help our common human evolution at this time. Anyone can do this on their own. And anyone wishing to participate more "formally" with everyone else can go to the website (www.winterfeastforthesoul.com), click on the "Sign up; it's free" button, and then access teachings and guided meditations from a number of accomplished teachers from varous traditions (Click on "Meditations" for this). By the way, it is also a wonderful opportunity for people newly interested in meditation, as there is excellent instruction in how to begin. There are also teachings that are more advanced, and even from the "I Am" consciousness. In short, there's a lot for everyone, and there's something every day.
