Boston, Friday Morning, 7am

Dear Friend,
LowerRez.Morgan-2My name is Morgan Dix, Cofounder of About Meditation. I’m happy to introduce you to a new life-changing meditation program. It’s called How To Meditate, a simple and comprehensive introduction to meditation.
 
Through How To Meditate, you will...
 
…discover an endless source of inspiration, focus, and clarity.
 
Meditation can help you relax, relieve stress and anxiety, and slow down. But it can also unlock your heart, open your mind, and help you realize a level of fulfillment you may not have experienced before now.
 
I want you to be sure that this is the right course for you. And I want you to know what you can expect to learn. So I've provided a full overview of the course here. Based on my own experience with meditation...
 
...Your life really can change in amazing ways.
 
Meditation was the catalyst for major transformation in my life and it continues to this day. If you are willing to meditate for 5-10 minutes every day, and if you follow the instructions in this course, you can’t fail.
 
meditation course onlineImagine it for a moment. You’re sitting in a safe and quiet place as you meditate. Your mind grows calm like a still blue pool. You practice a simple technique and your attention becomes focused and clear. The stress and anxiety of the day melt away as your awareness expands into the present moment.
 
You are filled with a sense of gratitude and confidence that life, your life, is good beyond measure. Anything is possible. You are living in the fullness of this moment.
 
But you don’t have to take my word for it. You can start right now.
 

I started meditating over 20 years ago. I was looking for deeper meaning in my life. I wanted more out of every moment. A small voice kept whispering to me. Isn't there more to life than this? Can you relate?

I found the answer to that question through meditation. And I believe you can too. You see, meditation can help you in many ways: 
  • 8385422957_9d3061e826_oStress, stress, stress: On a physical level, we run from one thing to the next leaving us tired, stressed, anxious, and depleted.
  • Emotionally drained: You might feel depressed or you’re looking for more clarity. Or maybe you struggle to concentrate, focus, and make decisions?
  • Spiritual detachment: You may suffer from a lack of clear purpose or meaning in your life. Like me, you feel there must be more, but don’t know where to find it.

…That’s where meditation comes into the picture

As you probably know, there is more compelling science than ever supporting the benefits of meditation. 
 
Even short periods of meditation every day can dramatically increase your sense of wellbeing. What would that look and feel like for you? If you meditate on a regular basis you will:
 
  • meditating with othersFeel refreshed
  • Awaken your creativity
  • Focus your mind
  • Let go of negative thoughts
  • Experience the pleasure of expanded awareness
  • Release stress
  • Build confidence
Yes, it’s also true that meditation takes real work. Personally, I’ve gained extraordinary benefits from consistent practice. You can, too.
 
Just recently, Harvard University published a study that said, "27 minutes per day practicing mindfulness exercises stimulated a major increase in gray matter density in the hippocampus, the part of the brain associated with self-awareness, compassion, and introspection." From our experience, you can experience positive results from meditation even sooner than that.
 

Do you struggle to make meditation a habit? 

How to be stillA lot of people struggle to make meditation a lasting habit. Like any habit, it takes time to work it into your routine. How long? According to a 2009 study from University College of London, on average it takes 66 days for any new behavior to become a bona-fide habit. When meditation is a habit, it becomes effortless and automatic.

That's why we help train all our students how to establish meditation as a habit. We do this because the benefits are so incredible. But more importantly, because we want you to graduate from this training with a meditation practice that will last for life.

When it comes to starting meditation, a lot of people struggle with the same issues. Here is where many folks get tripped up:

  • You feel the instructions are confusing
  • You feel like you don’t have time
  • You don’t know if you are doing it right
  • You’re unclear what you should be experiencing
  • Your mind won’t go quiet
Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 9.29.31 PMThose are THE most common concerns we hear about meditation from our students. And it’s true, without guidance from a seasoned practitioner, these can be stumbling blocks. But they don’t need to be.
 
That’s why we developed a course that's based on my 20 years of experience. I made every mistake you can imagine, and I've been blessed with incredible experiences. And now I’ve worked with my team to distill that knowledge and create an incredibly simple but complete introduction to meditation.
 
You see, I did live like a monk in a contemporary ashram for 14 years, and I’ve spent close to 15,000 hours meditating. That’s almost 2 hours a day for 20 years. But, you don’t need to be a monk like I was to get the benefits of meditation. This course will give you the essence of what I’ve learned in a fraction of the time.
  • I loved the course! What I most appreciate is that you don’t offer this training from a ‘canned’ perspective, but obviously from a very personal, experiential place. You really gave everyone what they need to develop their own practice.
    ~JT
  • I have greatly benefited from these lessons. This has helped me beyond words! I so appreciate your insight and descriptions and analogies. You are a wonderful teacher, a gift few possess. I do believe everyone should do this course, especially those having difficulty with meditation. I greatly thank you. Love and peace.
    ~Amy

Why should you listen to me?

Here’s my meditation story in a nutshell. 22 years ago I was in college and I was searching for meaning and purpose. Over time, I suffered and grew more anxious because I knew there must be more to life than this. I was struggling inside and I was searching for deeper meaning...
 

And then I found it when I discovered meditation...

Your world will change through meditationAnd when I did, everything changed. I stopped struggling against the current of life. I discovered that there is a reservoir of peace inside of me. And I could nurture that inner quiet through regular practice.
 
Now I experience a kind of fulfillment in life that I couldn’t imagine before. Of course I still suffer like everyone else, but I also see that I have access to something else that’s rare in this world. And it comes from meditation. It’s a source of confidence and I know that it’s in you too.
 

I want you to have that experience too...

Free awarenessDo you want to be the source of your own inspiration? If you are willing to put in the same amount of time it takes you to drink a cup of coffee then you can do this.

Through meditation, you’ll start to nurture a source of inspiration in yourself that no one can take away from you. It’s yours. In fact, it is you.
