Courses available to subscribers
Wildmind is a community-supported meditation initiative, and our courses are generally only available to our sponsors. (If you'd like to learn more about becoming a sponsor, click here.)
This page offers brief descriptions of the courses on offer to subscribers. In order to find out more about any course, click on the "learn more" button. Access to the courses themselves is found in the monthly Community Newsletter that's sent out to all sponsors.
Please note that for practical reasons not all of these courses are available at the same time. They come out on a rolling schedule, with at least two courses being made available every month.
The courses are listed in two categories: those that are particularly suitable for relative beginners to meditation, and those that are better suited for people who have been practicing for at least several months. Plus there are a number of "Sitting With Bodhi" series; each individual series is noted as being good for relative beginners, established practitioners, or both.

Sitting With Bodhi
It's very easy for our practice to go stale. We get stuck. Instead of our meditation being a vivid experience of awakening, it can devolve into a half-alive, humdrum habit. Or maybe we even stop practicing. Sitting with Bodhi gives you guidance when you need it. It's a daily meditation support to offer you guidance, to show you new ways of being, and to bring added depth and richness to your practice.
Links to guided meditations, especially recorded for this event, will be sent to you in a series of emails that are delivered at your pace.
Each meditation provides a 10-minute lead-in to a particular approach to meditating. Before you hit "play," set a timer for as long as you want to sit — for example 15, 20, or 30 minutes. Next, start playing the meditation on your computer or mobile device. At the end of the recording you are invited to continue with the practice until the end of your chosen time period.

Courses More Suitable for Experienced Practitioners
These courses are aimed at people who have several years of experience with meditation. Often the themes are more explicitly Buddhist, or they offer a more in-depth guide to applying the principles of mindfulness and compassion to daily life. There are however, no prerequisites, and any Wildmind sponsor is open to participate.
