Start Your Day With a Daily Meditation

With: Shirley Riga


Out of stock

At 8:30am I start our half hour by reading an intuitively chosen piece. After the reading, all participants are muted and then a gong sounds to start 15 minutes of silence. Feel free to shut off your video. I encourage participants, if they choose, to listen to soft music. At the end of 15 minutes, with ending gong, it’s a time for reflections by participants. I ask people to remain muted and raise their hand if they want to share briefly. We’re done by 9:00am or shortly thereafter.

This half hour daily practice has been an anchoring and grounding experience for many people during this uncertain time. Please note the Zoom link is recurring, so keep it handy. I hope to see you soon.

Shirley Riga

life changed dramatically in 1981 when her youngest daughter was born with two liver diseases. For her own sanity, Shirley searched for tools she could use to help herself and her family, and she found Dr. Susan Jeffers’ book "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway". It was a resource she latched onto for many difficult years and events. As a trained practitioner in Psychosynthesis Counseling and drawing on her life experiences, Shirley wrote "Tools for the Exceptional Parent of a Chronically-Ill Child" and then a workbook "Tools for the Caregiver: A Workbook for Finding Yourself Through Caregiving". In 2011, Shirley became a licensed instructor of Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. Wanting to integrate a spiritual dimension into her work, Shirley completed a two-year certification program as a Spiritual Guide through the Rowe Center in Massachusetts. She chose this program because it helped expand her awareness of the many ways the sacred manifests in people’s lives. This training helped develop her deep listening skills, compassion and awareness of each person’s essence. She can help people explore their connection to the divine however they define that. As a caregiver advocate, teacher, and support group facilitator, Shirley is effective in helping people who are at a crossroads in their lives or at a standstill, because fear is always an operating factor. She has a special interest in supporting caregivers, people experiencing bereavement, and the LGBTQIA community.
