I could not even begin to describe the peace I have received from this program. I have learned so much about myself in the few minutes I spend each day in practice…The program has helped me to live in the moment and appreciate the small nuances in life that often go unnoticed.

“The benefits of meditation can be experienced through developing a consistent practice and this is where many struggle. During this course, you will learn how to transform things happening in your daily life—even challenging moments—into opportunities to practice. You can’t get rid of the difficulties in your life, but you can transform your relationship to them through turning them into opportunities to train your mind."
