Mystical unity. Poets dream about it. Scholars analyzed it. Saints and Avatars across faith traditions have lived it. And, throughout time, ordinary seekers have yearned for it. Now just imagine . . . what if that yearning led you deep into the unexplored wilderness of your inner soul to discover a secret passage into a place where silence speaks of all there is to know—a place to which you can only point—yet, once discovered, know better, trust more, than any other place you could possibly conceive of or imagine? What if, beyond all you’ve ever feared, beyond all your doubts, even beyond all your questions, there was a simple answer waiting, waiting for just the right moment, to cut through all you thought you knew to, imperceptibly, lay at your feet the one truth that informs all the others—that right there, within you, all along, was the treasure you’ve been so desperately seeking? What if you finally understood that this treasure could not be found or created—only allowed—for, in truth, it is already you? Welcome to Mantra Prayer—where you create the conditions to experience that which is beyond understanding, moments of mystical unity, and where, at last, your deepest yearning can be satisfied.

In this 10–week online class, you will explore just what mystical unity is. You’ll be given concrete instruction in how to create a Mantra Prayer spiritual practice and shown how to navigate the challenges as they arise. You’ll learn how to become co–creators with your God through the dance of will and surrender. And, each week, you'll practice key mantra practices from across six faith traditions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism, known for their ability to help cultivate healing and forgiveness, courage and focus, and living with an open heart.

Come. Join with other lovers in the wilderness. Who knows? You just may be left silent and ecstatic with awe.
