Like any practice or learning activity that is pursued seriously, the Intrinsic Practice requires a time commitment. It is recommended that you set aside at least 10 minutes a day for the Practice as well as an additional 30 minutes once a week. You may set aside more time, if you want, need or enjoy it.
You should also choose the right place before you begin your practice. The space you choose must feel welcoming. If the chosen space is in your home, you may want to design or decorate it in a way that would make it feel most comfortable and pleasant for you, for example with the use of meaningful photographs or paintings (or choose a space in your home that already feels welcoming).
Consider the space for your practice as your sanctuary. At first, this sanctuary will be in specific places that you are naturally drawn to or that you have designed for the Practice. Gradually, however, that space will become more internal, within yourself, rather than external, and you will be able to carry that inner sanctuary with you into many external spaces.
