Meditation in the Temple of Nature

Where have history's great prophets and seekers made their most tremendous spiritual discoveries? From the revelations of Jesus in the desert, to the Buddha's enlightenment under the Bodhi tree, to Black Elk's vision on the mountain, nature remains unsurpassed in its power to transform our lives.

I love the practices in this audio program and would like to share them!!! There are many helpful practices on this program from different spiritual traditions that help you connect with nature in a deeper way. Some of my favorites were the rainbow light meditation, the reciprocal breathing practice done with a tree, the tonglen meditation and the various qigong practices. I feel like I've been looking for something like this for all of my life. Hopefully this review will help in some small part to encourage people to buy, listen to and practice this.
