Why I Meditate—
Meditation is the art of stillness. In stillness, inner and outer, I am free. Rather than simply being free from something. A person who meditates frees themselves for something. The kind of clarity a person achieves through meditation is ever-expansive and enduring, I think what the Universe needs now more than ever is for those who have the ability to make a choice, to do so.
Meditation makes it possible for me to see beyond the chaos. The mind is a chatter box of ideas, and more often then not, fears that keep us from imagining a world of potential. Meditation is a gateway to faith and trust.

Sifting the web: reasons why people meditate:
-Energy, strength, health, wisdom, and access to my own inner stillness, inner silence, inner bliss. It is my connection to myself; it is my connection to the universe,—Russel Simmons
Why give to EnlightenNext?
Because EnlightenNext is providing the programs and forums to help create the next stages in human culture. Helping people to recognize and take responsibility for the impulse of creation itself at the leading edge so that new potentials can emerge. www.enlightennext.org/about/
How will your money be put to good use?
-To sustain the infrastructure and staffing costs that enable both our live and virtual programs to run efficiently. in these challenging financial times EnlightenNext really needs support to keep offering these valuable programs to more people and at a high standard.
-To support the continued promotion of EnlightenNext founder Andrew Cohen's New Book Evolutionary Enlightenment which is the synthesis of his 25 years of teaching work and is the spritual philosophy that is fuelling all the work of EnlightenNext. www.evolutionaryenlightenment.com/
-To provide sponsorships and scholarships for those who are less fortunate who could really benefit from participating in EnlightenNext retreats and training programs.
These are just a few ways that your money will be used and I can only say that building the future takes passion, commitment, focus, intention AND financial resources and I appreciate whatever you can give to make this possible.
In fact, even if you don't participate directly in the work that EnlightenNext does, just by supporting it in this way you are really giving to all our collective future....and to my mind that is a very wise investment.
