So that we may be able to do this gracefully, grounded, and with compassion, Energy Matters would like to offer this On Demand course on a choose-what-you-pay starting at $20.

Why practice?

Meditation is not just something we do for a certain period of time in a very specific place (i.e., the meditation cushion). It is a way of being – present, awake, receptive, non-reactive, compassionate, and taking appropriate action – with ourselves and all that is. It is a way of cultivating peace within ourselves, and by so doing, cultivating peace in the world.


Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

In this 6-week course*, we will explore how to increase happiness and transform suffering through mindfulness practice.

  • Fully guided meditations to help you enter deep relaxation. Both video and audio available.
  • Explore postures that help support your practice.
  • Practice with 'homework' to help you deepen and benefit from your practice.

This class is appropriate for those new to meditation as well as those who are open to practicing with a beginner’s mind.

Cost: $97 or choose what you pay below.

*The 6-week time period is just a suggestion. Feel free to take the course at your own pace.
