Meditation and mindfulness have a myriad of scientifically proven benefits for our mental as well as physical well-being. That’s why they should be as naturally included in our daily routines as brushing our teeth is – because they are as crucial for our overall health as dental hygiene is for our teeth.

Therefore, this course will teach you about their potential positive effects on your life. In addition, you will learn about and experience more than 16 meditation techniques so you can find the one (or the ones) that resonate with you the most. The course will also help you make meditation practice a part of your everyday life and support you in dealing with the possible challenges of meditation.

Included are 24 guided meditation audio files of various lengths to help you get started.

  • The first section explains what meditation and mindfulness are and lets you experience them in different ways.

  • The second section is all about how meditation enriches your life, i.e., its health-promoting effects.

  • The third section discusses possible obstacles in meditation practice and respective solutions.

  • The fourth section introduces various meditation techniques, including loving-kindness meditation, walking meditation, and body scan, to name just a few.

  • Finally, the fifth section deals with integrating meditation and mindfulness practice into your daily routine.

By the way: there’s a Certified Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Training at Living Health Academy that includes the material of this beginners course and much more. It will enable you to practice meditation yourself and teach it to others, guide them through their meditative experiences, and write your own meditation scripts. You don’t need any prior experience for that training either.

If you’re interested in professional training, I recommend you check out the teacher training before enrolling in this course. Otherwise, you would have to go through some of the same lectures again if you decide to do the teacher training later.

How long do I have access to the course materials?
You can view and review the lecture materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel.
Can I take my courses with me wherever I go?
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
