Meditation to Promote a Saintly Life|
Susan Helene Kramer, BellaOnline's Meditation Editor
A saintly life is abundant with harmony in action and interaction. This does not mean there are no trials, rather each situation is resolved from the perspective of what is for the highest outcome of oneself and all concerned.
Solitary Samhain Activities|
Ro Longstreet, BellaOnline's Wicca Editor
If you celebrate Samhain alone, the occasion will be more contemplative than at a party. But nothing can engage your belief in the magic of the season as strongly as your own solitary celebration with no distractions as you experience a sabbat that you have tailored exactly to your own tastes.

Interfaith Meditation Outline
Spirit is spirit and not limited to a particular form. Spirit flows through all atoms, enlivening everything: people, places, things. Meditation is a universal experience for all.
Samhain Supper Recipes
Samhain is the doorway into winter when we pagans and Wiccans gather to remember our ancestors, to take stock of the old year, and to welcome the new year. On Samhain night, you want to serve a hearty, warm meal with a light and spicy dessert to follow.
Be an Example for Children in Meditation
If your children are old enough to stay still in a meditation pose, let them sit with you for a minute. Read them a short uplifting story at the beginning of your co-meditation and ask them to close their eyes and think about the story, while you are both quiet.

Spiritual Memoirs of a Catholic Priest, By Edward L. Beck. Each chapter contains a scripture passage and personal tales revealing God’s presence in everyday life. Fr. Beck is a member of the Passionist community and travels throughout the country preaching and organizing retreats. I highly recommend this wonderful book and have personally attended several of Fr. Beck’s inspiring parish missions.
