A time to Examine!

by Michael Ketterhagen

Reviewing our day as we lay in bed at night is a wonderful practice.

Both the Christian monastic tradition and the Himalayan Yoga tradition have similar methods of examining how much we have acted in tune with our spiritual goals throughout the day.

The Christian method, started by Ignatius of Loyola, is called The Examen and approaches the practice from the position that our loving and caring God is always watching over us and is separate from us. This approach is the understanding of the transcendent God, the God beyond our usual daily life.
