We teach people to lower stress, improve focus, and live happier.
Through proper instruction, mindfulness and meditation can help address the struggles all of us face every day - from anxiety and worry, to self-confidence, productivity, and overall well-being.
If you want to learn why you should do it, how to do it properly, and how to build a consistent (daily) practice, you are in the right place. Thousands of people just like you have completed our course, and it is a trusted resource that has been proven effective for over 11 years.
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.
It's simply the practice of understanding and observing your mind, and learning not to get swept away by it.
"I had a lot of stress and needed help..."
My personal journey with mindfulness and meditation started almost 20 years ago, after reading an article that claimed it could reduce stress. At the time I had a lot of stress, and I needed all the help I could get.
As I learned how my mind works, I discovered it was responsible for most of the struggles in my life - struggles that I previously blamed on external circumstances.
The majority of people don't realize their minds play such an important role in their well-being. When you spend your life inundated with thoughts, it's hard to recognize just how prevalent they are.
My recommendation for these people is a simple exercise: start a timer for 10 minutes, sit down with a pen and paper, and write down every thought that occurs. This is an eye-opening experience for most.
Some people do realize that they suffer from compulsive thinking. They are aware of the constant mental dialogue, and the effect it has on their daily life. Stress, anxiety, depression, self-confidence issues, productivity problems, a lack of focus - all of these have their foundation in the mind.
The people that realize it spend a lot of time searching for a solution...
Self-improvement doesn't work.
Like many of you, I looked to the self-improvement industry for help: I read books, I watched videos, I attended seminars, and I tried to force myself to "think positive." But, nothing worked for very long. That's because none of it addressed the root cause...it was like treating the symptoms while ignoring the disease.
The root cause is your mind.
All of us have been conditioned over the course of our lives to follow our minds wherever they lead; most of the time, we operate on "auto-pilot." We are victim to the next thought, emotion, or urge that arises, and - as a result - we usually don't have a lot of influence over our own decisions, actions, and reactions.
When you learn to understand your mind, all of that changes.
Take your life off auto-pilot.
Once you are able to separate what is real from the stories playing in your head, life improves dramatically.
Most people go through their days without realizing the difference, and they carry around the stress, anxiety, and worry that comes as a result. Or, they suffer the depression that comes from continuously replaying negative, despair-filled stories in their mind. Or, they develop a lack of self-confidence because a voice in their head constantly tells them that they will never be "good enough."
Mindfulness and meditation, practiced consistently, address all of these issues. And, you don't have to wear robes, chant, or sit in a funny position!
Are you ready to take your life off auto-pilot? If you are, our self-study course is the best resource available. We don't just teach you "how-to-meditate," we help you understand why you should.
