Description

If you’ve struggled to create a meditation practice but it didn’t seem to work, perhaps you just need to find the technique that’s right for you. Having taught meditation for many years, Molly's learned that most people who don't meditate just need to:

1) find the technique that's the right fit for them, 

2) learn how to find the time and,

3) learn how to create the habit.

This course addresses those three issues. 

An introduction to meditation and mindfulness, the course includes:

  • the potential physical and social benefits of meditation, 
  • how to create the habit of daily meditation, 
  • correct posture and position, 
  • correct breathing, 
  • guided meditation,
  • techniques that relieve stress, 
  • classic techniques that have withstood the test of time, and 
  • techniques that can enhance our relationship with the natural world. 

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TAKE THIS COURSE ALL IN ONE SITTING, OR EVEN IN ORDER. TAKE IT AT YOUR OWN PACE OR EVEN JUMP AROUND. 

Who is the target audience?
  • People who have never meditated who are looking for stress reduction and a meditation practice
