Humanistic Spirituality Training and spirituality workshops place emphasis on supporting prayer and allowing great flexibility in the methods and words that one uses to manifest it.  In our spirituality training, we use the phrase “purifying intention,” which is really about opening to our essential heart in order to move beyond ordinary self-centered desires and our egos.  When our intentions encourage us to reach for this essential purity of heart, it is almost indistinguishable from prayer.

There is always a difference in the uniquely personal question of what and whom we are praying to and sending our intention. We know that these differences and words such as religion, spiritual, God or godless, for some, can act as triggers that create opposition and even war.  We sometimes have a tendency to judge something as right or wrong, good or bad, constructive or destructive. Some people with a non-religious view criticize the concept of praying to a God “up there.” Some deeply religious people may feel sorry for those who lack faith and believe the “believers” are uniquely aligned with a higher connection to God.  These judgments limit the capacity for everyone to unite.  At Humanistic Spirituality, we feel that whether someone has a particular faith or not is not the point when working toward purifying our heart and having inner peace. What is significant is that sending our prayers or intentions to a source far greater than our ordinary sense of self.

In our spiritual workshops, we cultivate practices that bring spiritual awareness to our purity of motive that will help us expand beyond the desires and defenses that create our sense of self and fill our ordinary lives.
