In the Spiritual Habits Group Program, you'll establish simple daily practices that help you feel more at ease and fulfilled in your life.

What Are Spiritual Habits?

At the age of 24, I was homeless, addicted to heroin, and facing a long jail sentence. It looked like my life was pretty much over. But, as it turns out, it wasn’t. I stand before you now, over 25 years later truly thriving in every part of my life.

How?

I discovered powerful spiritual and behavioral principles that, when combined, allowed me to change my life drastically.

If I can turn things around with the challenges I faced, so can you.

These principles can be applied to your life, regardless of where you are, to help you live and experience your life in a more grounded, loving, strengthening, and creative way.

These are the principles I teach in the Spiritual Habits Group Program.

You are not alone if you struggle to remain consistent with your spiritual practices and because of that, your life feels out of balance, relationships suffer, and your inner resources feel depleted.

When you apply Spiritual Habits in your everyday life, you will be able to experience the strength, peace, and renewal that can only be found in this deeper realm.

I will teach you how to turn to these core pillars of unchanging wisdom and apply them to your daily life so that you can access your own calm and centered presence, regardless of what’s going on around you.

And we’ll do this together in a virtual group format so that we can connect with one another every step of the way.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel like you were actually living mindfully versus just reading and thinking about it?

What You Practice

You Strengthen

I am a behavior coach, certified interfaith spiritual director, author, and the host of The One You Feed Podcast. I’m endlessly inspired by the quest for a greater understanding of how our minds work and how to intentionally create the lives we want to live.

At the age of 24, I was homeless, addicted to heroin, and facing long jail sentences. In the years since, I not only found a way to overcome these obstacles to create a life worth living, but I now  also help others to do the same.

I have worked as a behavior coach for the past 20 years, coaching hundreds of people from around the world on how to make significant life changes and create habits that serve them well in achieving the goals they’ve set for themselves.

I currently host the award-winning podcast, The One You Feed, based on an old parable about two wolves at battle within us. With over 350 episodes and over 18 million downloads, the show features conversations with experts across many fields of study about how to create a more meaningful life.

Jonathan Fieldsauthor, entrepreneur and host of The Good Life Project podcast

"Eric Zimmer is incredibly transparent, real, and generous in the way he shares his story, overcoming addiction and rebuilding his life and career. As a guest on my podcast, Good Life Project, I loved learning how he approaches and examines life, as well as discovering the practices he's developed to illuminate a path forward. Eric is a great conversationalist and has so much to offer in helping others learn how to move through the more challenging times in life." 

"I was delighted to hear Eric speak recently about Spiritual Habits. Combining the science of building habits with the wisdom of spiritual principles is a unique and powerful idea where Eric teaches others how to create a more fulfilling spiritual practice. Eric's innovative approach is sure to inspire others to reach their highest potential in whatever areas they are seeking growth.”

"I finally started meditating almost every day and it feels like a new habit has formed. I have been trying for so long and this class has made it feel more accessible."

Elissa, Spiritual Habits Group Program participant

"I loved the reinforcement every week with the basic tenants and then how we expanded them out into different areas of life by implementing different practices. That was really good because it reinforced every session that we had."

Mel, Spiritual Habits Group Program Participant

"It's interesting because I've never been a religious person and I’ve always had a little bit of ambivalence around religion and even a little bit around the word spirituality. But I felt that I needed something to ground me and now I realize that Spiritual Habits was the thing that was missing in my life."

Julie, Spiritual Habits Group Program Participant

"I am less depressed. I feel calmer and more grounded, and continue to work on these habits daily. I am a daily meditator now!"

"For me, Spiritual Habits help me maintain contact with my higher power; in other words, getting out of myself and connecting with something bigger than myself. I need to intentionally put things in my life to make that happen and that’s what Spiritual Habits do. I keep coming back to the lesson about how to be a friend to yourself and the practical tips on how to do that throughout the day, even when life feels like chaos."

Dave, Spiritual Habits Group Program participant

“There’s always been this struggle for me in the disconnect between outwardly living versus inwardly living and trying to align those two. This program has allowed me the opportunity to pause and figure out how I can better align those two experiences. It’s helped me to be more present and peaceful. Spiritual Habits has been an invaluable tool to make sure that these lessons become part of my daily life as much as, say, brushing my teeth is important and part of my self-care ritual.”
