Your mind creates a lot of problems. We can help you change that.
We teach people how to lower stress, improve focus, and live better (among other things).
With meditationSHIFT, you learn to
- understand and overcome the problems created by your mind;
- meditate on your own, through proper instruction (there are no "apps" to download);
- build a consistent practice, and a positive, life-long habit;
- bring mindfulness to your daily life (transfer the skills you develop while meditating to your "non-meditating" time).
Our minds are the foundation for most of the struggles we face - from stress, anxiety, and endless worry, to issues with self-confidence, productivity, and focus.
In short, almost everything related to our overall well-being.
Sleep problems? Yes. Depression? Yes. Ruled by your emotions? Yes. And on and on and on...
Traditional self-improvement methods (motivational videos, self-help books, "forced" positive thinking) don't help with these challenges - at best, they only deliver temporary results.
Our three-week course, taken in your own home at your own pace (with the option of one-on-one instruction, if desired*).
For over 12 years, meditationSHIFT has been proven effective by tens of thousands of people around the world.
What we teach isn't something mystical. It won't conflict with your religious or philosophical beliefs. And, you don't have to sit in an uncomfortable, cross-legged position!
About our course:
Most people who start meditating don't stick with it. A study published in 2014 showed that over 90% of initial participants were no longer doing it consistently just three weeks later.
That's a huge failure rate for something that can dramatically improve your life.
The scientifically-proven benefits of mindfulness and meditation are numerous - but, most people never learn how to apply these practices to their daily lives in order to realize those benefits.
meditationSHIFT teaches you how to do that.
Our in-home course includes:
Course manual/study-guide - over 50 pages of discussion on three core insights, five supporting insights, and more than a dozen practical exercises. It is designed to help you understand and overcome the problems created by your mind.
(note: you can download a copy of the course manual/study-guide for your personal use, or you can access it online - in either case, you do not need to purchase any special software or anything additional.)
Our time-tested methodology - structured to help you build a consistent practice. We ramp-up your activity over three weeks, and show you how to avoid the obstacles that cause people to become frustrated and abandon the effort.
And, our technique of focusing on a mantra (a single-syllable sound that you repeat silently to yourself) makes it easy to learn and easy to practice.
We teach you to meditate properly, without the use of outside aids or devices. You can do it anytime, anywhere. You don't need an "app," and you don't pay us an ongoing monthly fee.
It's simple: Learn it now, do it for the rest of your life, and always have access to the course if you need a refresher.
Online course pages - each day for three weeks, we provide you with instruction, motivation to get you to take action, and information that reinforces key concepts. As with anything in life, you still have to make the effort. But, we leave nothing else to chance.
(note: the online course pages are text posts, not video - you can access them with any Internet connection.)
Summary of key points - concise and easy to review. Our summary reinforces what you learned in the course manual, and helps you fully internalize the information.
Continued motivation and ongoing support - you have access to online course pages that provide additional motivation and reinforcement beyond the initial three weeks. And, you can communicate with us through email anytime, or ask questions via Skype during our Weekly Q&A (held every Wednesday from 3:00PM-5:00PM CDT).
We are always here to help, and we are happy to answer any questions and provide further guidance.
How it works:
Our course is taken in your own home, at your own pace.
You begin by reading the course manual - it should take the average reader around 45 minutes to complete. For the duration of the course, you will refer back to it as a study-guide.
Over the next three weeks, you will visit the online course pages and:
Read the supplemental information provided - this information builds on what you learned in the course manual and strengthens your understanding of the mind-made activity and conditioned processes that create problems in your daily life. Most important, it teaches you how to interrupt those processes and no longer get caught up in (or swept away by) your thoughts, feelings, emotions, and urges.
Follow the instructions for that day's activity - we increase your meditation time each week: you start with shorter sessions multiple times a day, and migrate to longer sessions twice a day. This method is designed to help you turn meditating into a positive, life-long habit. And, it's been proven effective for over a decade by the people who have completed the course (reviews here).
Pricing for the course:
meditationSHIFT has evolved over the past 12 years to include new information based on research and feedback from our students. It will continue to evolve in the future - once you get the course, you will always have access to the latest version (our most recent update was February, 2015).
We ask for a one-time contribution of $39, which is equal to about $1.86/day for our three-week course (and, less than the average price of a cup of coffee).
There are no ongoing monthly fees...it's simple: Learn it now, do it for the rest of your life, and always have access to the course if you need a refresher.
Your contribution supports our efforts to help people around the world better understand and deal with the problems created by their compulsive minds. It is an important and urgent cause, and one that benefits all of us.
(note: we offer a discount to students with a valid .edu email address. Contact us for details.)

(note: if there is a reason you cannot use PayPal - for example, there is a specific country issue, or you were previously banned from the service - send us an email explaining why and we will work with you on an alternate method.)
"Just be happy" isn't useful advice...
Deciding where to eat dinner is a choice - happiness isn't. Regardless of what you have been told, you can't force yourself to "be happy."
Happiness is a state buried under the mental drama that permeates our daily lives.
meditationSHIFT helps you uncover that state, and shows you how to stay in it more often than not.
