If we wish for a spiritual practice but continually start and stop it is like turning on and off the heat to boil water — we know from experience, the water will never boil with this approach.

Likewise, in our spiritual practice, if we are unable to sustain a continuum of formal and meditation break practice, we are unable to gain the strength in our mind to develop and experience happiness. In this class series, we will explore the five forces which gives power to a daily practice in order to generate and maintain it.
