Eastern and Western Methods and Concepts
Come enjoy a day of inner journey through levels of consciousness from the finite to the infinite, from the individual to the universal.

Livonia , MI


Drawing on years of study and practice, meditation expert John Van Auken carefully and thoughtfully outlines a workshop that will provide you with guided sessions on Eastern and Western methods, along with Edgar Cayce’s uniquely transformative techniques for achieving a deep, meaningful meditation.

Whether you are a novice or advanced meditator, you will be guided to a deep state from which you can let go enough to awaken to your individuality, soul, and higher mind, then move into contact with the Infinite Consciousness. Both fundamental and advanced concepts will be presented and then guided practice sessions using proven techniques will follow. The sessions include kundalini meditation and passage-inconsciousness meditation. The passage-in-consciousness method is designed to achieve direct contact with what Cayce calls the “Universal Consciousness,” the infinite mind and spirit of God.


You'll learn the techniques firsthand in this experiential workshop as you:

  • Achieve deep relaxation, stress reduction, and renewal
  • Elevate your body with healing vibrational energies
  • Feel the pulse of the Divine through sacred chant
  • Activate your inner self to more fully experience the richness of life
  • Gain new techniques for personal and spiritual transformation in your daily life
  • Learn how to meet daily challenges and opportunities with higher vibrations and greater awareness

Enjoy the many spiritual and physical benefits of a new or revitalized meditation practice! Cayce recommended regular meditation for rejuvenation of the physical body and a calming and centering of the mind. Therefore, healing and guidance may also be achieved during the sessions.

Whatever your religious or nonreligious views, these methods can help you experience God directly. The workshop includes breathing exercises, chanting prayers (spiritual, not religious), and journaling. There will be time for questions and sharing. For your comfort, you may want to bring a mat, pillow, light blanket, and a journal or notebook.

"(Meditation)...Is not musing, not day is the attuning of the mental body
and the physical body to its spiritual source." Edgar Cayce Reading 281-41
