- Change the rhythm of your reading…We all read at a habitual pace. If you read quickly, slow down. If you are a slow reader, increase your speed.
- If a sentence or a phrase impacts you, stop and let it unfold in Silence.
- Become aware that the words you are seeing, you are also hearing in your mind.
- Read the same paragraph repeatedly and meditate on the words that stand out.

Readitation is simply a song to the absolute, a hymn of praise, an outpouring of love. Mind, begins to take on the qualities of this open, empty, transparent presence.
In the beginning
was the Word, and the Word
was with God and the Word
However, truly, the Readatation has little to do with knowledge. Through contemplation, meditation and/or silence the ideas infiltrate our being and do their work. The content is always what we need to hear, to understand and to see a new perspective.
Ideas have force and Readatation imbues us with a palpable energy for dealing with daily situations inner and outer.
Readatation is an opening to the energy of Grace that is beyond the mind’s comprehension.
Readatation brings with it a heightened ability to observe our mind, emotions and body and become aware of all the ways that we are distracted from clarity.
The Reading Practice started in an intensive 12-year program of Self Knowledge primarily based on the Teachings of George Gurdjieff and included Rudolf Steiner, the 12 Steps of AA. The practice was called a “Reading Aim” and it was the foundational spiritual practice in the program. All participants in the program read 2 hours straight everyday first thing in the morning, after getting dressed, washing up and before breakfast.
We had Reading Aim partners, as it was obvious that most of us did not have the will to do this on our own. The partnership consisted in calling each other at start and at finish of the Aim.
When I entered the program, everyone was reading basically one book and we continued reading that book for 5 years!! It was a short book based on “The Work” of Gurdjieff and Krishnamurti. After that we were exposed to many authors.
At this point you might be asking yourself, “Why would anyone agree to such an exercise?”
The people who were attracted to the program had two basic similarities. One was that our inner and outer lives were falling apart. The second was that we all had a great desire for spiritual teachings and transcendence.
To engage in the program the first requirement was the two hour Reading Aim which was a pre-requisite to the rest of the program.
For me, from the beginning, the results were amazing! The years of clinical depression that I had been diagnosed with by a reputable MD psychiatrist vanished in about a week, never to return.
Many who came to the program and started reading had similar experiences including freedom from drug addiction, alcohol, smoking, migraine headaches and mental/emotional symptoms. They not only got healthier and stable but experienced spiritual awakenings and eventually became spiritual teachers.
