Have you been trying to get a meditation practice together and getting frustrated at how much harder it is than you thought?
Or are you new to meditation and wanting simple, easy-to-follow guidance on how to begin?
This free course is all about getting you started with a regular meditation practice—whether you are a new meditator, or an experienced one. I talk to a lot of people about meditation in my work and often find that they get confused about the amount of information and hype there is out there. Meditation is in itself very simple but we are not used to it and that can cause us to stumble as we try to make it part of our lives.
Meditation has been one of the most creative aspects of my life in the years that I have been practicing. This course shares some straightforward advice that has helped me and many of my clients make meditation a regular part of our lives. I hope you will find it helpful too.
