My morning ‘hits’ of 10 minutes of meditation practice, along with the short talks, have made it easier for me to manage during this crazy time! I’m hooked!

Cathe – Retired Teacher

After completing the free Foundations course, I wanted and needed more. Fast-forward seven months later: I finished the Journey to Well Being series and have started the Journey to Compassion. As a result, my brain has rewired, and my heart has purified. I am not the same person. My marriage and other close relationships are thriving. Don’t deprive yourself of this miraculous experience.
