Much research has shown that meditation is one of the very best ways to cultivate the brain states of self-awareness, calm and inner peace, lovingkindness, mindfulness, and happiness – as well as strengthen the immune system and nurture other health benefits.
Join guest teachers Saniel Bonder and Linda Groves-Bonder for a live-streamed weekly meditation, talk, and discussion. Co-founders of Human Sun Institute, Saniel and Linda have made it their life’s work to bring embodied awakening to a global audience. Their breakthrough approach has taken enlightenment from remote temples of the spiritual elites to the towns, households, and workplaces of people around the world.
Saniel Bonder was an Honorary National Scholar at Harvard, earning a B.A. in Social Relations. He has devoted his adult life first to a 20+ year spiritual quest and then to “democratizing enlightenment” by transmitting and teaching this work for more than three decades. As a prolific author, teacher, and coach, Saniel has helped high-performing teams and hundreds of individuals achieve their greatest potential. His books include Waking Down, Healing the Spirit/Matter Split, Great Relief, and The White-Hot Yoga of the Heart. He’s on LinkedIn and Facebook.
Linda Groves-Bonder has personally assisted many individuals into stable whole-being awakeness. She is Saniel’s wife and sole co-founder and partner in their Human Sun Institute and its current publishing and outreach division, Human Sun Media. An awakened co-creator of their offerings since the mid 1990s, Linda has contributed central expressions of the teachings. These include Six-Step Recognition Yoga, Active Conscious Dreaming, and Conscious Skillful Will. A former professional artist, singer/songwriter, and actress, Linda holds a B.S. in Art Education from Ball State University.
These teachings are offered freely, at no charge. And if you like, you may wish to participate in the age-old tradition of generosity through making an offering yourself – called “dāna” – to support Saniel and Linda, and Rick’s Wednesday Meditations. Generosity itself is a beautiful practice that opens and gladdens the heart, relaxes the contraction of “self,” and ripples out into the world to touch many people – and perhaps, eventually, even oneself.
