Cultivating the SKILL and SCIENCE of mindfulness: Throughout the course there are guided mindfulness meditations at each step of the way.

Each step of the way, you will be reducing stress and anxiety, and cultivating more happiness, gratitude, and contentment – all you need to do is follow along with the guided meditations! In meditation, and particularly with mindfulness, an experiential understanding is much more important than a conceptual one, which is why this course focuses on the practical foundations. All of the lessons are based on a science of the mind, so there is no need to adopt a new belief system, take on any gurus, or learn how to chant things you don't understand. Mindfulness is much more of a science, or direct investigation, of the mind, than a belief system. By the end of the course, you will have the tools for investigating your own mind on a daily basis, which will allow you to let go of negative habits of the mind like stress, anxiety, and anger, and instead live with more joy, gratitude, and happiness!
