About Level 1: Discover

In the Discover stage of your Journey you learn how to meditate and how to sit with good posture. You’ll learn how a regular practice opens the door to all kinds of meditation benefits. A solid foundation in meditation connects us with the mind’s natural spaciousness and fosters awareness of what’s really happening right in the moment. This awareness promotes better decision making and helps us prioritize what’s really important in our lives.
