Welcome to the Basics of Meditation. This course is designed to help you learn the basics of meditation so that you can build your own meditation toolbox and create a sustainable meditation practice. This program is unique because we believe in teaching the basics of meditation from a holistic perspective.
This course is designed for anyone who desires to learn meditation and fit it into their busy schedule. We curated the content based on our experience leading busy professionals who have created long-term meditation practices for managing stress, being more aware of themselves and their surroundings, and staying centered and mindful.
In this course, we will use video lessons, audio meditations, and reflection journals to:
To create a strong foundation for your practice, we will help you integrate your learnings at each step. In each video we create space and a worksheet for you to journal and reflect on your new knowledge and how it uniquely pertains to your life. We also provide supplemental handouts to further explain basic meditation concepts and support the knowledge you will learn in the videos.
We strongly believe in practicing meditation within a community. We created a Basics of Meditation private Facebook group to connect to other likeminded individuals, ask questions from us and other practitioners, and share your individual experiences. Sharing your observations and staying curious in community will enhance everything you learn in the videos, audio meditations, and journal reflections.
You get to decide how you want to take this course and manage the flow! We will support you with a course tracker to plan the course content and track your progress. You have the option to watch the entire video series in a few days, or you can spread it out over a few weeks. The most important practice is to stay committed to the goals and intentions we help you set.
We can't wait to be part of your meditation and mindfulness journey. We will see you on the inside!

“Wade and Kellye do such a wonderful job creating a warm, inviting, safe environment for exploration and discovery. I'm very new to meditation, but found myself feeling liberated by Wade and Kellye's encouragement to approach the work with a "beginner's mind" to tap into myself and just feel and notice. The Basics of Meditation experience left me feeling relaxed, centered, and excited to start my own practice.” - Meghan
"My previous meditations maxed out at about 3 minutes. I couldn't do it, but now I surprised myself how easy it is to sit for longer after learning some tools from Wade and Kellye" - Quintin
“Having recently started my adventures in meditation, I'm always looking for fun ways to explore new methods. Basics of Meditation is exactly what I've been hoping to find. Wade and Kellye lead us through new techniques in an approachable, lighthearted way. More than that though, is the community that is formed." - Sondra
