Description

The science is conclusive! Modern researchers and ancient mystics agree. Meditation is good for you—good for your body, mind and spirit.


The challenge is, of course, that meditation can feel impossible in our busy, modern life. If you feel this way, you are not alone. Over the past 30 years, I have taught thousands of people to meditate and in the beginning almost all struggle to quiet their mind. But with the proper instruction and a few helpful tricks, meditation can become a satisfying part of your daily life.


In this course, you will learn how to sit and quiet your mind. You will also learn how to deal with distractions as they arise and how to create a consistent daily meditation practice. Most importantly, you will see every facet of your life find greater depth and balance as a result of your meditation practice.


Even if sitting still feels impossible now— with a small amount of effort and the lessons in this course, you can learn meditation today and create a regular and lasting meditation practice.


Who this course is for:
  • Those who have struggled with meditation in the past
  • Perfect for religious, spiritual, agnostic and atheist.
  • Those who need to manage stress and anxiety
