Course Testimonials

I must say that this was such an incredible experience and I am so thankful to you all. This has opened my mind and led me down such a strong and powerful path in my life. I can truly say that it changed the person I was, and I will never be the same again. I look at things differently, even colors seem brighter to me now. Your layout of the program was spot on and flowed beautifully. - Kayte

I want to thank you for all you have done. …this has been such a blessing to me. I am so excited to use meditation in my daily life. Morgan you have gone above and beyond what I expected. Thank you again for everything. - Wendy

The course was wonderful, it was exactly what I needed at this time in my life. I feel more peace than I can ever remember. I am very thankful for each lesson. - Michael

I thought the course was terrific. I recently took a 300 hr yoga teacher training and recommended it to all my fellow trainees to use themselves and share with their students. I believe we are at a tipping point on mindfulness and meditation being accepted and studied more carefully in our society. Not a moment too soon! Thanks very much for the gift of this course. - Ginny

I reached the end of the course this week. Can I say a massive thank you as it has helped me no end throughout. I will keep everything I have learnt in mind and definitely refer back time and time again for tips and reminders. A great course that I will definitely recommend to others!! Big love from me!! - Tom

Thank you for the course! It is wonderful. The lessons that I have taken have been very insightful. Meditation has not come easy to me & you are the first person online who has provided steps to work through trying to figure out what to do & what to do with my mind & fidgetiness which I seem to have so much of. - Karen

Thank you so much!! It has been a very kind and simple way to introduce me to mediation….Most of all I appreciate the flexibility and no pressure approach. Thank you. Warm wishes. - Carolina

I found the lessons rang true right away, addressing all my misgivings and resistance with solid, common sense principles. The tenets, tips etc. are very helpful and instructive and I found the articles (which I had time to read) very inspiring. The website is rich and I look forward to supporting my second round with more reading and more meditation. Thank you for this effort. I already feel the beginnings of wakefulness — and I have shared your website with a number of friends already. - Luba

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

Why is Mindfulness so popular? Because it works. Here are some science-backed benefits.

Maybe you've thought about starting a meditation practice for a long time. And now you're ready to take a live course with a teacher and experience the benefits.

In this 5-week course, you'll learn everything you need to establish a daily meditation habit, and you'll get the support to help you follow through.

But first, let's review some of the remarkable benefits of mindfulness that are supported by scientific research. (Citations below are from the American Psychological Association)

Entering The Guest House

This poem by Rumi is one of my favorites. It captures the essence of what we learn as we develop a stable and consistent mindfulness meditation practice. I love this poem so much I have it framed at the entrance to my meditation hall.

In the Coming Home Mindfulness Training, The Guest House is a metaphor for the work we do learning how to meditate.

Meditation is an ever-evolving process of presence, curiosity, and not knowing. We ride the breath into the present moment and enter a rich—at times enchanting—zone of discovery.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.​

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.​

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

-Rumi

Why Coming Home?

As you develop a consistent mindfulness meditation practice, you will start to discover and connect to the ground of your own being. Most of our culture pulls us away from that ground. In contrast, meditation leads you right there. What does that feel like?

It feels like coming home.

I invite you to come home as often as you can. To nurture, cultivate, and stabilize access to your own home ground.

FAQ

Do I need to have any previous experience in meditation?

This course is designed to support new and experienced meditators alike. You don’t need any previous experience to participate.

How does this Course work?

We will meet weekly on Tuesday nights from 8-915pm ET on Zoom. Each session will generally consist of a dharma talk with instruction, a practice session, and then Q&A. The course concludes with a 2-hour “retreat day” on December 19th.

How long do I have access to the Course?

You will have lifetime access to the course recordings and materials.

What equipment is required?

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.
