You know that spiritual awakening is why you’re here – but it’s not easy to keep that knowing alive and present in your life.
Even when you know that meditation works – it’s easy to let your practice wane. Despite how good feels to live mindfully – it’s easy to get distracted. (Can you spell iPhone?)
There are so many demands that pull at your attention.
Work. Relationship. Health. Family. Money.
It’s easy to lose the plot.
Than, rather than flowing with life, you’re swimming upstream: struggling against the current of daily demands.
We get emails every week from people who are struggling to sustain their practice and integrate meditative awareness into daily life. They’ve read tons of spiritual books; taken programs; been on retreats.
They know that establishing a meditation practice and weaving mindfulness into their day is essential. But, knowing isn’t enough.
You can know all day long and still not awaken to the life you were born for.
To live your awakening life requires more than knowing. It takes changes. Changes that make it easier for you to:
- Sustain and deepen your meditation practice
- Move through the day with mindfulness, ease, and flow
- Stay inspired when you’re up to your neck in daily life
Most people won’t make the necessary changes.
Not because they don’t want to but because they don’t know how and don’t have the right guidance or support.
Establishing your awakened way of life isn’t a solo project.
We all need support, guidance, teachers, feedback, and loving to wake up and stay on the path. That’s what the Wisdom Heart Community is for.
Monthly practices for meditation & mindful living
We’re here all year with monthly, weekly, and even daily ways for you to stay inspired, practicing, and going deeper.
- Even if the demands of your career or your family are pressing and regular.
- Even if every moment seems to be accounted for.
- Even if you’re disappointed with the way you do/don’t practice.
Imagine what could happen for you if you put all of those stories aside so you open up to your deepest, truest, most joyful life..
You can jump in at anytime.
As soon as you do, the teachings & practices will start flowing your way with:
- Deep guidance on how-to meditate
- Teachings & techniques on mindful living
- Inspiration to nourish your spiritual heart
You’ll experience the
4-Stage Wisdom Heart Process.
Our 4-stage process of integrating teachings & practice facilitates deep change. It’s like watering a garden – you don’t turn on the hose full blast. That just creates a lot of water on the surface. It takes a gentle, consistent, drip-drip-drip to nourish the roots.
That’s our approach: simple, deep, gentle.
Every month we bring you a new four-stage practice program. It’s the drip-drip-drip that builds your capacity and nourishes deep spiritual roots. Through teachings, meditations, dialogue, reflections, and dharma doodles, we’re there to:
- Support & deepen your practice
- Remind you of what matters most
- Expand your mind & open your heart.
It’s curated process.
The 4-stage sequence of teachings and meditations are intentionally designed to cultivate your awakening life one month . . . one practice . . . one breath at a time.
“With all my practices and years of study there was still a dryness. I was stuck and the life, the juice was gone from my spiritual life. Wisdom Heart has infused my inner life with something like healing rain; a life giving moisture that has freed me. In those places where I was stuck – I found a way out. The dryness is gone – filled with life.
For years, I’d been mired, trapped on a spiritual see-saw: feeling high then low, going back and forth with practices, starting and stopping but never moving forward.
Now, I have such deep and powerful tools – ways of being, principles and practices. I’ve found a way forward. This has been your greatest gift – all given with warmth and tenderness.”
Ann Richards, San Diego, CA
Here’s a picture of what you’ll experience each month:
This is what you’ll experience week-by-week
Each month, you’ll integrate a key spiritual principle into your life – through teachings, meditations, and in-your-daily-life practices. The integrated learning begins with Opening your mind and heart.
The month starts with an Opening teaching that introduces the monthly theme. This rich 15-minute teaching is delivered in video, audio, and text formats.
You’ll also receive the meditation-of-the-month audio. This carefully designed recording is what you’ll use all month. Yep, you’ll practice the same meditation everyday. Why?
It’s this consistency that re-trains the busy mind, cultivates mindfulness, and deepens your capacity to rest in meditative stillness.
You’ll be able to choose each day between a 10 or 20 minute audio practice.
Wisdom Heart Practice Journal
This beautiful journal is designed to be used all month. Filled reflections and questions that allow you to deepen your learning, track your meditation practice, and discern how to live your awakening life. PDF ready-for-printing.
The next phase of the process takes you deeper into the monthly theme with two nano-teachings.
You’ll receive two short (5-minute) teachings that dive into key teachings and deeper guidance for your meditation and daily-life-mindfulness practices. Video & audio format.
Mmmmmm . . . is your mind wandering? That’s fine. Breathe and return to the practice. You’ll be able to choose each day between a 10 or 20 minute audio practice.
As you absorb the teachings and experience the meditations – a lot comes up. Insights. Confusion. Breakthroughs. Questions. That’s the reason we gather together, at this stage, for a live Dharma Dialogue.
It’s time to talk, to meditate together, explore questions, and share the dharma. These lively, intimate transmissions of the teachings nourish the heart and expand the mind.
You’ll learn how to adapt & personalize the teachings to your life unique situation. If you can’t join us live, no worries – the 45 minute Dharma Dialogue will be recorded.
Yes, we’re still here. Now it’s time to . . . go deeper. You’ll be able to choose each day between a 10 or 20 minute audio practice.
The cycle ends with an integration teaching that distills what we’ve been exploring and experiencing this month into dewdrops of wisdom.
This 12-minute teaching will help you digest the insights and integrate the energies that have been released this month into the natural rhythm of your life. Video/audio/text formats.
The final week of this practice is a wonderful time to rest in the stillness. You’ll be able to choose each day between a 10 or 20 minute audio practice.
“Being in Europe, while far away – I feel so close. There really is no distance.
The content is so beautiful. I love the artistry and depth of your language.
The way you take us on a new track and deeper inquiry – it opens up a whole field of possibilities. The richness of your teachings is infinite.
There is openness, humanness, down-to-earth, and deep knowing.
Sometimes I am so amazed that you bring such deep knowledge and understanding – coming from the soul.
I love the community and participants. The depth of sharing is so touching and connecting. You attract wonderful people and join them together.
The Wisdom Heart teachings are universal – they contain and embrace our whole life. I don’t have to abandon what I’ve learned in other practices or programs; what you teach enriches and deepens what came before.”
Gisela Kissing, Berlin, Germany

Here’s the truth: stepping into a more awakened life is simpler than you think.
It’s gentler and easier, too. It starts – and continues – with taking small regular steps. Not dramatic moves. Simple daily ones that honor the truth of your soul.
But, access to information isn’t the issue. The challenge is converting information into wisdom that transforms your life.
There’s an ocean of spiritual information on the web.
More than you could ever absorb and much of it’s free.
But, access to information isn’t the issue. The challenge is converting information into wisdom that transforms your life.
Awakening doesn’t happen by clicking around the internet.
It happens through settling down, practicing, and being in conversation with teachers and like-minded people on the path.
“I’m still surprised at the depth of connection that we have.
I’ve participated with a local meditation group – very actively – but I never felt community as I do with this group which is online. It’s strange and unexpected and wonderful.
It’s amazing to connect with like-minded people from all over the world. Some are in Europe, others are on the same continent as me but 3,000 miles away. It doesn’t matter – we have an actual community. For me this has been a huge value.
You say that “the teachings really are a dialogue – not a monologue” – and I’ve really discovered this to be true.
It is a safe and supportive environment – I don’t understand why. It just is and that has allowed me to not hold back (something I tend to do) and go really deep.
It has been really important experience being part of the community over and above the teachings which are amazing.”
Jean Van Bonn, Arcata, California

Still not sure this is for you?
While your situation is unique, there are some common themes that we’ve heard from our students.
These are the main ones:
1) You’ve starting meditating but find it hard to sustain your practice in the rough-n-tumble of your daily life.
When your practice wanes, you really feel the difference. You’re not necessarily overwhelmed but you miss the grounded, balanced energy that comes from consistent practice and you know that with more support, it would happen.
2) You’re full of spiritual information.
You’ve taken full advantage of the spiritual marketplace – reading, listening, watching. You’re an advanced student of what’s out there.
But, now it’s time to turn inward, to stop clicking around the web and hopping from teacher to teacher. It’s time to not just dip your toe in – but to dive in, devote yourself to practice . . . and take it deeper than ever before.
3) You feel isolated.
You don’t meet many people who really get how central spirituality is in your life. Some brush it off as woo-woo. Others don’t judge but still, they’re not available for soul-deep conversation in a way that nourishes you.
If you had a Community of people who get it . . . deep breath . . . walking the path would be easier and more fun.
4) You’ve noticed your blind spots.
And while what you’ve seen isn’t that pretty, you want to shine the light of awareness into those nooks and crannies. You know that smarts isn’t enough to illuminate the shadow.
And, while it feels so vulnerable to admit: you’re ready to hold a big loving mirror up, so you can see what needs to be seen, blessed, and transformed.
5) You love the Wisdom Heart newsletters.
You really resonate with these teachings and you wish the newsletter conversation could go further. Still, you don’t want or aren’t ready for a structured program.
You want guidance, inspiration, and connection to deepen your journey.
6) You’ve taken a Wisdom Heart program before.
You want to keep working with what you’ve learned. expand and deepen your awakening, and stay connected to Eric and Devi. You know that continuity and consistency are the keys to integration.
If any of those scenarios resonate for you, the Community will meet your needs.
Again, feel free to reach out and communicate.
