COMMON QUESTIONS 
WHAT EXACTLY IS MEDITATION?
Meditation is all about becoming aware of your experience - including your thoughts, your feelings, and your body.
This session will teach you how to train your mind, so you can practice meditation easily and effortlessly.
When we meditate, we consciously take back control over our minds, and our lives.
DOES MEDITATION ACTUALLY WORK?
Yes! This session will teach you scientifically-proven skills that are widely used in the world of personal development and positive psychology.
There’s a reason so many people are talking about meditation these days – it’s incredibly effective, yet simple to practice.
The word ‘meditation’ is often associated with spiritual practices, but you don’t have to have any particular belief system or follow any specific kind of practice to use these ideas in your life.
WHAT IF I'M A TOTAL BEGINNER?
This session has been designed for people with zero knowledge of meditation. It’s specifically designed to teach you the exact tips, techniques and strategies you’ll need to get started on your journey.
You don’t need any knowledge, books or fancy equipment. All you need is you!
