Many people today are interested in meditation and its benefits but do not know how to start. This is an easy-to-follow course designed for
small groups of beginners. No particular form of meditation is promoted but the course, which is based on the Bahá'í writings, introduces participants to reflection on scripture in a gentle and profound way, and it generates strong bonds of fellowship amongst group members. It has proved to be a useful stepping stone to the Ruhi Training Institute courses.
The CALM course is designed for small groups of beginners who are initially guided through the meditation by a Coordinator. The CALM Coordinator's Guide: A Communal Approach to Learning provides an easy to follow, step by step guidebook that will help new Coordinators start CALM courses and assist them to take learners through the rudiments of meditation to the ability to meditate on their own.
The CALM course helps us :
- open our hearts and minds to the spiritual reserves that lie within us all, such as love, insight, calmness, courage and enthusiasm
- explore the principles of meditation
- practise meditation skills
- develop our own practice
- and shows us how meditation can be applied in our lives.
Comes complete with the CALM Guided Meditation CD.
