Overview

Meditation is one of the most powerful things that you can do, as a human being. It trains you to be in control of you mind and your emotions, in ways that you never knew were possible. It allows you to be happy just to be alive, even in the most difficult of circumstances; even when you're injured, or suffering a loss, stressed out at work, overwhelmed, depressed or anxious. It allows you to find the basic happiness of being alive, and that pervades everything else, so that you can deal with everything else much better.

Aside from just giving you that unshakeable happiness & joie de vivre, it also gives you control over your mind in ways that are hard to even imagine before you experience it. It gives you the ability to focus on whatever you want to focus on, which can make you extremely productive and successful in life.

Tim Ferris studied hundreds of the world's most successful people: billionaires, celebrities, athletes, bodybuilders, and scientists at the tops of their fields. There was only one trait that over 80% of them had in common: a daily meditation practice. That's crazy when you think about it. It's not that they were all super intelligent, hard working, good looking, or born into wealthy families. The single most common trait among the world's most successful people is meditation. Isn't that weird?

To experienced meditators, this is not a surprise at all. It makes perfect sense that the world's most successful people are meditators. Meditation is a meta-skill; it's a skill that improves all of your other skills. It improves your ability to focus, so that you can do everything else better. In that way, meditation improves every aspect of your life, from relationships to health, happiness, productivity, career... everything.

In this course, you'll go from complete n00b to at least understanding the basics of meditation. This course is Meditation For Beginners. It will help you to get a good firm grounding in the basics of meditation, that you'll be able to take with you into daily life, to walk around in a meditative state, and to form the foundations for your own daily practice. All within about an hour and a half of course materials. Very easy, very simple, geared toward you, specifically, the beginner meditator. This will help you be happier in life, feel better, be healthier, and deal with pretty much anything that life will throw your way. The best hour and a half you'll ever spend in the rest of your life is this hour and a half, watching this course, learning to meditate for the first time.

I'll see you inside!

Namaste.

Course structure

01

Introduction

02

What is meditation?

03

What Is The Point of Meditation?

04

Exercise 1: Mindfulness of Breathing

Watching the Breath is one of the most popular and ancient meditation techniques in the world, going back all the way to the Buddha's Anapansati Sutta, written 2500 years ago.


05

Debrief: Mindfulness of Breathing

What happened in your mind during that meditation exercise? What Did You Experience? Warning: Breathwork Can Be Very Powerful!


06

Exercise 2: Breathwork / Pranayama

Unlike Mindfulness of Breathing, which is a very Buddist-style meditation, Pranayama is more of a yogic style. Instead of passively observing the breath, we'll be controlling the breath, for intense and rapid results.


07

Debrief: Breathwork

How did that breathwork go for you? What was the experience like?


08

Exercise 3: Inhabiting The Body

Have you ever been "stuck in your head"? Have you noticed how that can take you out of the moment? In this meditation we'll be inhabiting the body, and awakening to all six(?!?) of its senses.


09

Debrief: Inhabiting The Body

What did you experience in that meditation?


10

Exercise 4: Broad Mindfulness

Living on the razor's edge of Now. Think about the four techniques you practiced, and consider them in relation to one another. What Did You Experience?


11

Longer Meditation Periods

Longer periods of meditation lead you deeper into states of bliss and ecstasy.

About Kevin Ellerton

creator-photo

Hi, I'm Kevin! When I was in college, I was anxious and depressed. I was smoking a lot of weed, addicted to video games, taking a lot of psychedelics, waking up around 2pm every day. I was going out of my mind. Thankfully, a friend introduced me to meditation, and it gave me my life back.

Since then, I've traveled the world, lived in ashrams & monasteries from India to California to Thailand and Indonesia, built several successful companies from the ground up, made (and lost!) millions of dollars, started meditation programs in universities and hospitals, written & published meditation books, created Meditation Magazine, married an amazing woman, and just generally become happier than I've ever been in my life. Of all my projects, I am proudest of Meditation Magazine, which is currently on shelves in thousands of stores in 20+ countries around the world, including Whole Foods, Barnes & Noble, and many more.

I meditate every day, and life keeps getting better and better, every year more beautiful than the last. The meditative happiness goes far deeper than the external accomplishments; even when I had nothing in life aside from meditation, I was chillin. Even when I'm sad or stressed or struggling, I'm still zen.

I believe that the best thing I can do in life is to help bring meditation to the masses. Aside from helping each individual find happiness inside of his/herself, it makes our society, our civilization, and our world into a better place for us all.

I hope you enjoy my courses. Peace & Love. Namaste.
