Welcome to the course! This is the Orientation Page, where you will find everything you need to get started.
I want to congratulate you for taking this first step. Meditation can be one of the hardest habits for people to start, but one of the most rewarding!
My intention for you is for you to build the habit of meditation in the next 21 days and eventually, be able to meditate on your own without any audio recordings at all.
PREPARING FOR THE COURSE
1) Before you begin, I have an article for you to review that will set you up for success here, called
7 Tips to Starting a Successful Meditation Practice.
Make sure to watch the short instructional videos linked within the article.
In addition to the 7 Tips, I highly suggest learning and practicing these 2 pranayamas (breathwork) and do one or both of them for a few mintutes before your meditation if you want extra help with getting you "in the zone."
2) Next, download the 7 Meditation Mp3's here through Dropbox. Click the "Download" dropdown menu in the top right corner and then click "Direct Download" in order to download the meditation audios to your preferred device. You can then have them to play on your smartphone or computer anytime, anywhere. However, the audios can also be played on each Meditation Page, as you work your way through the program.
3) Now, you can proceed with the program. You can access each meditation from their link on the password protected contents page here.
Each meditation 1-7, is located on a separate page with accompanying detailed explanations. It is not necessary to read the extra material on the page in order to do the meditation.
HOW TO PROCEED THROUGH THE COURSE
There are 7 Meditations, each one about 20 minutes long, created to build on the one prior to it.
After completing the Orientation, proceed to Meditation 1, which you will do for the first 3 days, then Meditation 2, which you will do for the next 3 days, and so on.
To help you keep track of your progress and of where you are in the program, mark Day 1 of meditating on your calendar and keep a journal. Title each entry in your journal, "Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, etc."
Each day, spend at least 5 minutes journaling
a) about your experience in meditation that day and
b) what you noticed throughout your day after your meditation.
You may be surprised at what you start noticing!
I hope you enjoy your meditation practice! And if you have any questions during the course, please feel free to reach out to me anytime via email at email@example.com. As an experienced meditator, and creator of the program, I am here to help you. Having access to me is one of the biggest perks of the program, so do let me know if you have any concerns or questions.
I dedicate this course to all of the meditation and mindfulness teachers I've had over the years, both living and beyond "the veil."
