Meditate With Brother Camillus Chavez, FSC
This is God’s project to help other people meditate and learn to use meditation for prayer, and to develop themselves. We envision it going to all our LaSallian schools, and for the faculty staff and students, and that they also may learn to share this with their family and friends, and so the Schools of the Brothers may begin to spread this beautiful practice throughout the world. Saint LaSalle said the most important religious exercise of the Brothers is to meditate daily.
CONNECT TO YOUR DEEPER DIMENSION
UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL
We look forward to being together again, but until then, let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
I reluctantly postponed the May and June 2020 workshops because of the Covid19 shut down. I give you here some recommendations for meditations to help you get through these times and stay connected to your inner Self.
Take a Saturday morning to do the Forgiveness meditation. Forgive Mother Nature for letting these periodic plagues emerge that whip us mercilessly. Who is responsible? Mother nature, God? If necessary, forgive God, nature and the coronavirus, so as to get rid of all resentments. There is a mystery here, since this is not the first plague to scourge the world, and not just for a year in the past, but for a much longer time. Get rid of your resentments and hunker down with your brothers and sisters. Bear up with this and cooperate in doing what is best for yourself and the common good. As the Tao Te Ching says, "Go with the flow". Nature is bigger than you, but nature is within you giving you the strength and offering the wisdom to do what is best. Be at peace, God loves you despite all appearances to the contrary. Connect to that deep inner love.
Another meditation that may help you connect to this deep inner love is the "Baptism of Jesus." Be baptized with Jesus again, and initiated into living a life based on God's loving presence within you.
As a final meditation, I recommend you find the Wise Person Meditation. Connect to a wise person coming from higher intelligence. Ask for guidance in your difficulties and problems.
MEDITATION WORKSHOPS will be announced here and via email and Facebook when we are able to resume.
Private meditation sessions are available with Br. Camillus by appointment. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and earned my Ph.D. in Clinical (Therapeutic) Studies at the Wright Institute.
CD's containing guided meditations to help you build your personal meditation practice are available at the workshops.

The Most Important Exercise of the Day
"Even just a five-minute meditation can recall us to the fact that we are in the presence of a God who loves us with an overwhelming love. This is the Christian and specifically Lasallian heritage - in the Rule of the Brothers the most important exercise of the day is interior prayer..."
