Terms and Conditions

It may seem out of place to juxtapose legal language with spiritual terms like silence and spontaneity, but the aim of the law is to clarify expectations and responsibilities. With that in mind, I offer the following thoughts.


This website is copyrighted but you may duplicate excerpts for personal, non-commercial use. No distribution or publication in any form is permitted without my express consent. If you borrow an idea from the written material presented here, please identify me and/or this website as the source. For further information and for permission, please contact Tria Reed at info@spontaneousmeditation.org.


This website is for educational purposes only. In offering this site, I am not recommending that readers make changes in their lives or in their current spiritual practices.

This website is not an instruction manual. Please do not engage in the spiritual practices described here on your own. Our true nature is a power that resembles electricity. We use electricity safely every day but we keep our distance from exposed wires and follow basic rules for its use. Only highly trained and skilled individuals work directly with electrical power. In the same way, untutored individuals should not work directly with the energy of their true nature without the involvement of a trained guide or companion and the “container” or context that religious and spiritual traditions can provide.

Every spiritual journey unfolds on its own timetable, revealing both the unique gifts and the ego tendencies of each individual. For this reason, the mystical experiences described on this website should not be seen as either “typical” or “ideal.” I do not promise or guarantee a particular outcome.

On this website, I name several religious groups and some of their publications. This “naming” is only for informational purposes. I mention them to call attention to a characteristic that their spiritual practices share. In so doing, I intend to contribute to the history of religions, not to endorse or recommend any group or tradition.

Please keep these thoughts in mind as you travel through this website. You will find other words of advice in the Forms section and the document, Guidelines for the Journey. I do not assume responsibility for the use or misuse of any information written here.

By using this site, you agree to these terms and conditions.

Thank you!
