Announcing our NEW introductory meditation course
We’re very excited to announce “The Mindful Life” – a new introductory meditation online course starting January 2. It’s a comprehensive four-week course on mindfulness – not only the how-to of meditation, but also ways to bring more awareness and aliveness to your life overall. It combines the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings with the latest research in neuroscience and psychology – so you get the best of both worlds. Weekly “daily life exercises” help you take what you learn into action in life.
The things that students have always appreciated about our courses remain unchanged. There are weekly MP3 guided audios for learning and practicing the meditations. And Sunada is present in the discussion forum every weekday to personally respond to all questions and discussions. It’s the kind of guidance that goes way beyond what you could get by studying from a book or a CD.
The course topics are:
- Week 1: Opening to Awareness – Enriching your everyday experiences through body awareness
- Week 2: Taming the Body/Mind – Calming the body and mind with the Mindfulness of Breathing practice
- Week 3: Focusing the Body/Mind – Finding stability and contentment through the good and the bad times
- Week 4: Engaging with Daily Life – Staying grounded and making wiser choices in life, walking meditation, and making the practice your own
If you’ve taken the previous Level 1 course with us before, consider taking this as a refresher. Returning students get a $25 discount off the fee (in the form of a rebate).
Classes begin on the first Monday of the new year — on January 2 — so sign up soon! I hope to see you there.
