There are three more things I want to share with you before you start.

First is that whenever you finish a lesson you need to press the button on the top right corner, so it marks it as complete and updates your "Percent Complete" status.


Second, the way I have organized the course is that you only have access to the lessons you need right now. Every week, a new Week of content is unlocked. This helps us to focus on taking action on the current lessons, rather than falling into the temptation of wanting to "peek ahead". However, if for any reason you prefer the whole content to be unlocked at once, then send me an email after you finish the first week, and I'll unlock it for you.


Third, this course teaches you meditation from the inside-out, making you stand on your own feet, and not depend on guided meditations. However, I have included one guided meditation on the first day of each week, as an aid to learn the new technique, due to request from some students.

If you feel the need, make use of it - if not, just do the meditation on your own.

Just wondering if there is an app for this program or if it is only accessible from the website? Also, there was a mention of text reminders...how do I sign up for this?
Giovanni Dienstmann
Hi Lilan,

The course is web based, but you can access it via your mobile browser.
I'm not sure where you saw the mention of text reminders. But one thing I recommend is to setup a recurring calendar event in your calendar app, or an alarm in your phone, to remind you to do the meditation.

Brand new year, brand new meditation practice, I hope. A good time to start. I have tried meditation several times in the past and have noticed I get depressed. I'm hoping that won't happen this time. I have a good friend that is a dedicated meditater and have been impressed with the changes it has made in her. Anyway, I'm trying again...
Giovanni Dienstmann
You made a smart choice, Gretchen. Meditation is one of the best New Year's resolutions!

If you experience anything negative from these practices, please get in touch so we can work through that together.

Love the emphasis on gradual habit building. This could be just what I need to make meditation a daily activity. Looking forward to using such a well thought out program.

Looking forward to start this course. Hoping this will help me getting started for real with meditation. I've only read books about it for now, so actually practicing it will be a challenge. But I'm up for it! Thank you!

Easy to start...except I saved my email that was misspelt and I couldn't go back and change it!
Also now I am worried if I leave this site where will I find it on my phone?
Giovanni Dienstmann
I saw you registered with two emails, so that is ok.
