Continuing Education ~ Spiritual Maturity

Spiritual maturity depends on a lifetime of curiosity, honesty, and on-going education. Sadly, the absence of just one of these things often leads to a "closed" system of thinking. But for an open mind, independent learning never stops. Sincere contemplation of the true teachings of Life as pointed to in Zen, Tao, Tibetan Buddhism, and all real teachings, is really a process of becoming more and more appreciative. These interactive courses come directly to your email address, and the dialogue could last one to three weeks.
