Course Description

Meditation should be a practice that anyone can benefit from. Unfortunately, there is a lot of confusion and complication around this simple practice. This course will make it clear, simple and easy for you to meditate.

Meditation techniques are often taught in a very rigid way.  These leads people to believe that the only way to meditation is through a buddhist meditation practice, zen or somatic meditation.

This course will teach you simple, effective meditation practices that transcend a specific discipline, giving you a clear way to understand and utilize any meditation practice you come across.

This is currently a Best-Selling Meditation Course on Udemy!

Here's a few recent reviews:

"I found this course very helpful. The explanations are very clear. The instructor really cares about the students. He talks with a passion and provides a good deal of motivation. In the past I tried to start meditation many times, but could not practice consistently. For some reason this course did it for me. There is no "beating around the bush". All explanations are strictly to the point. I am thankful to Ken for creating this course."

-Anna Plotkin

"Wonderful course! It really is amazing the benefits that you experience as a result of meditating. I'm an atheist/non religious person and of all of the groups of people on the planet, I would say that I belong to one of the most critical and skeptical bunch. I used to think meditation was a sort of mystical thing - a nonscientific structure. And I couldn't have been more wrong. Ken Wells is able to wonderfully translate meditation out of the mystical world and show how to apply it in a "tangible" - if you will, sort of way. I no longer take ambien, Xanax, nor my antidepressants. Now keep in mind, it was not meditation alone that brought about these results but it is certainly a powerful tool. A way to observe one's thoughts, without being consumed by them, brings about peace of mind. This peace of mind enables one to clearly see what changes need to be made in your life to bring yourself into alignment with your purpose, which leads to self-actualization and happiness. I highly recommend this introductory course. Ken will build you an unbreakable foundation for which to build your understanding of this wonderful practice."

-Brandon Burkhardt

"Everyone knows the amazing benefits of meditating, this course is the absolute best guide to start your meditation habit."

-John Camboli

"Excellent course!

The information in the course is great. I was looking for some time now on a meditation course and I got exactly what I wanted :D"

-Mirela Voinescu

"How to Relax Your Body and Mind - Quickly & Easily!

I took this class with impatience and all my expectations were fulfilled. The course is very well organized, the lectures are clear, the explanations are easy to follow and you will put all the advice into action in no time.

There are so many tips shared inside this program that you will not believe how easy it is to take action. You will learn the exact techniques to use while meditating to be at peace with yourself and relaxed ... and it takes just 10 minutes per day. So, Jump In!."

-Silviu Marisca

"Great course

Interesting lectures, knowledgeable instructor, good pace. I recommend this course for those who want to break myths about meditation and start to practice meditation now. Don't waste any more time, this is the course for you!"

-Luciane Cardassi

"This is no idle or self serving compliment; I have been exposed to many seminars, classes, etc. and although each had something to offer, Ken Wells, presents the material in an easy to follow format. Ken is presenting the core of meditation, which he explains can be developed in any direction we choose to go with it. I recommend this class to anyone wishing to learn meditation. I recommend it based on Ken's easy going, but detailed explanatory method of teaching."

I teach forward thinking, open-minded individuals how to reshape their perception of themselves. 

This is so they can clearly identify and effectively reach their true goals while finding more meaning, joy and freedom along the way.

Whether that goal is more happiness, better relationships, greater spiritual awareness, more money or simply to experience less anxiety and frustration.

I do this by using the same techniques and approaches used by Professional Athletes, World Class Business Executives as well as Creative Geniuses. This is all set against a backdrop of raising your Spiritual Awareness.

I believe that goal achievement is more about personal transformation than anything else.

Despite having many disadvantages starting out, I was able to dramatically improve just about every area of my life.

I went from deeply depressed to consistently happy, anxious to peaceful, started my own successful business, dramatically improved my physical health and went from feeling isolated & disconnected to feeling truly connected and whole mentally, physically and spiritually.

Nowadays, I get to do what I love, which is help other people become happier and have more personal freedom and find new ways to live the type of lifestyle that they choose.

All this has come about primarily by changing my perception.

What do you truly want? Let me teach you how to get there...
