This has helped me beyond words! I so appreciate your insight and descriptions and analogies. You are a wonderful teacher, a gift few possess. —Amy
The website was advised to me by one of my teachers as I really wasn’t coping well with a lot of things happening in my life. Meditating for around 10 mins a day really really cleared my mind and helped me cope with exams and getting on with my life. I never knew where to start before and this course was perfect so thank you! —Katie
Honestly, I can’t think of anything that I would have added to the course. The most important thing that I got out of the course was to “not make a problem”. That was priceless. I really liked the course and have already recommended it to a friend and will continue to do so in the future. It’s a great introduction. —Arodi
I was struggling to begin my meditation practice. This course got me started, and it inspires me to keep going - I keep listening to the guided meditation audios again and again! Very grounding. I'm finding a new, more peaceful, me. —ANNI K.
I am so impressed by the meditation mini course, I don’t know whether you have people who seem natural to it, but it was working for me on the first lesson. And it has gotten stronger and better on each one. Letting things be really taught me a lot, there were arguments in my head that I wasn’t concentrating enough, but when the lesson told me to just let the thoughts be, they soon disappeared, because I wasn’t concentrating on them anymore, I was “letting them be”. That was a huge step in it for me. —Adam
Thank you so much for the course…I have always wanted to learn how to meditate and found it quite challenging..I am however in the very early stages of your course as I feel the need to flourish in every lesson…I really want to make this work for me…and I’m thoroughly enjoying it! —MICHELLE
Hi Morgan, thank you for your mini course. It does help me to clear my mind. I like the way you make it so simple and straight forward. All that we need to meditate are: intention, be still, relax, attention, awareness and never create another problem when meditating. —Joey

It is important to maintain an upright posture while meditating where your knees and ankles are lower than your hips. As such, using a meditation bench or cushion is best for maintaining your posture during practice. For comfort, you will want to have a rug or flat cushion under your knees and ankles. You may also sit in a chair that supports upright posture.
