I'm looking for some sort of curriculum, book, program that I can follow at my own pace.  I am feeling sort of lost spiritually after having babies.  Now that they are a little older, I have some time to focus on things that are important to me and I miss spirituality.  I am looking for something along the lines of Conversations with God (only it looked so expensive) or Ekhart Tolle books. I like Buddhism, but I don't consider myself a Buddhist.  My religion is basically trying to live in alignment with the universe but lately all of my efforts feel so against the grain and I really need some spiritual guidance and support.  Any suggestions?

This is the best thing I've ever seen curriculum-wise.  It has a lot of great meditation exercises.  Completely a work at your own pace deal.

I have found studying old Rosicrucian records is very beneficial for my spirituality.  AMORC sends out monthly readings if you are a member.  They are old records of the life of Christ as well as many meditations and spiritual teachings.  They have a great child culture course for pregnancy and beyond.  I am a Catholic but love some of the Buddhist ideals and this is a great middle ground for me.  They pull old teachings from all religions and bring everything together.
