This course will show you the way... that meditation is a way of life, rather than a course to complete - and then forget about.
In this 30 day course, we cover Zen and Mindfulness meditation... a practice where you can begin to master your own life on a daily basis through the art of being 100% present in each and every moment.
It is a practical course where you will be expected to devote time for meditation each day for the next 30 days (most days approximately 30 minutes per day is called for) - and hopefully beyond.
Aspects of this course will include practicing being present and learning to meditate mindfully whilst walking, standing, waiting, eating, sitting and more. It's all about milking each moment out of your life.
The course also includes guided meditations where you can begin to learn to visualize during meditation and to connect to your breathing. There will even be a 2 day "silent retreat" A digital detox if you will.
If you are tired of always living a stressed out life and barely existing, then this course is for you.
Begin to master your life.. You already have the tools you need. They are already within you. I will be there to see that along the way, you will flourish and see and connect to another beautiful, more peaceful centered side of yourself that you may have not seen for a long while.
Let us begin.

Jason Stephenson is the founder of Relax Me Online and has been involved in the meditation/relaxation healing field for the past 15 years. Having come from a musical background (his parents both professional musicians), Jason understands the importance of music, meditation and its healing capabilities.
He says "Music and meditation have always been a profound part of my life. When I would arrive home from school, the first thing I would hear as I walked in the door was my Mum playing classics on the piano. It would soothe me, even back then as a child. I would stay still in a meditative trance as the music washed through me. I loved to sing when Mum played the piano too."
The importance of meditation came to Jason in his early 20's, when he was entering some troubled times in his personal development. Jason says, "I relied on meditation at this time in my life and understanding that there was more to my life than just the surface physical appearances. I will never forget one experience I had whilst meditating in a local National Park , totally at one with nature, and I felt like in those few moments, I had everything I had ever wanted, could want right here right now. It was an intense experience that left me wanting more, and seeking out more."
Having an interest in Buddhism, Jason attended a 10 day Monastic retreat at Nan Tien Temple in NSW, Australia, where those days really changed his outlook. It was from this point that Jason knew he had to continue on this path of seeking a deeper peace within himself and his world he lives in. In 2009, Nan Tien Temple asked Jason if would like to perform in a Buddhist song contest in Taiwan. It was here Jason performed on stage in Taiwan and won an award in an International Buddhist song contest. Combining his love of music and love of meditation, Jason knew he was on the right path.
Recently, Jason completed a Diploma with H & H Colleges in QLD Australia for Neuro-Psychological Immunity – a course where Jason says, "I really began to understand the power and connection between health of the mind and body."
Currently, Jason operates a highly successful eBay relaxation CD shop and a powerful meditation relaxation YouTube Channel with over 140,000 subscribers!
