A Bootcamp for Your Brain
Learn skills to help focus, observe, and balance your mind in six weeks.
We introduce you to the fundamental concepts of meditation, teach specific techniques to develop your skills, and help you establish a consistent practice.
Focusing the Mind
Focus is the foundation of this training. You will set up your practice rhythm and start building your capacity to focus with short 5-minute practice sessions.
Observing the Body
By observing the physical sensations of your body you gain greater understanding of your own experience. You will learn to recognize the relationship between sensations, thoughts, and emotions.
Balancing the Mind
You will understand what it means to maintain the balance of your mind. You will learn a meditation practice to let go of reactions and maintain poise.
Integrating Focus, Observation, and Balance
This week you will bring all three skills together. You will learn how to improve the quality of your attention and experience the benefits of mindfulness in your life.
Extend the skill of observation from physical sensations to mental content. You will learn to observe patterns of thought without reacting or getting caught up in unhelpful loops.
Welcoming all Experience
Put the practices together to shift the way you view and experience challenges in life. You will learn how to trust your self-guidance to continue learning and practicing independently.

I had been looking for a way into meditation for years and until this course nothing had stuck. I now find myself looking forward to meditating for 30 minutes each day, something that previously I thought would be impossible. I feel so much better having done this course and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Huge thanks for creating such a great package. The only bad thing is that it had to finish!
An Van Damme
Thoughtfully designed and effectively delivered. I never saw meditation presented as the development of the three skills focus, observation and balance. That frame definitely works well for me. I very much enjoyed the accountability that's implicitly created by the weekly online sessions. And I already notice the benefit of the practice in my daily life, for instance in being less distracted by thoughts. Thank you for helping me create this change in my life.
