We have only two universal and formal spiritual practices in the Living Love Fellowship: group prayer in the morning, and group Unification in the evening. Beyond that, each individual's spiritual practices are highly personalized.
Some of our people do meditation of some kind as an individual practice. Others do spiritual study (or inquiry using the intellect). Still others prefer "karma yoga" (creative and special service projects.) We've been known to dabble in just about anything we find happiness-producing and wholesome (including couples exercises, emotional tone exercises, skits, music, dancing, and periods of intense relating).

Studying together
New adventures come and go, in waves. But a few techniques -- like meditation -- seem to stick around. Part of the reason we try many things is because we like to be guinea pigs, trying to see experientially WHAT works -- and more importantly, WHY it works. This can help us, and it helps us help others as well.
Of all the many meditation techniques we have tried, the one we find most accessible and uplifting is Unification. It is, we believe, the best possible technique by which to enjoy Divine communion, and realize your own Spiritual Nature. It is also wonderful to strengthen the sense of connection with others. This is the technique we use daily. Because we value Unification so, and because we feel it will work for virtually everyone, we have described it in complete detail on this web site -- along with various applications of it, both individual and group.

Our main form of spiritual practice: daily living
MOST of our spiritual practice is, in fact, our daily life. Years ago, we drew a distinction between ordinary life and spiritual life. Frankly, we did that because we were not really prepared to face the spiritual challenges that ordinary life holds. But, over the years, that distinction has blurred. Now we recognize that everything we do -- every action and reaction, every kind of challenge or test -- is spiritually important. We have come to consider the day-to-day events as spiritual opportunities -- rather than as meaningless occurrences, or "mere functionality," etc. Viewing daily living as a spiritual practice, we find that much of our most productive spiritual practice really DOES occur in the process of living.
