This course demystifies meditation and makes it easy for anyone and everyone!
It is perfect for people who have tried meditation but were intimidated or thought it was too difficult. This class will jump-start your practice with ten easy-to-follow guided meditations so that you can find the one that works best for you.
The course is designed so that you watch the first three introductory videos explaining what meditation is and how it works and then possibly try the first 5 minute "Pretending to meditate" meditation just so you experience what it is like to sit still for 5 minutes. Then it is best to try one meditation per day for the next 9 days sequentially. Each meditation uses a different technique and each one is one minute longer than the previous meditation to help you gently build up endurance.
