- Calm your busy mind

- Find inner peace
And the best part? Anyone can learn how to do it!
Welcome to ‘Meditation 101’
If you’re interested in making meditation part of your life, give “Meditation 101” a try. This free 10-part audio series gives you all the tools you need for a regular meditation practice. Listen to the sessions whenever you want and just about anywhere – while at the office, sitting in traffic or relaxing at home.
Meditation 101 begins by explaining the basics, such as proper posture and breathing techniques, before progressing to more advanced concepts, such as awareness. Although you can complete the sessions without breaks, you’ll get the most from them by taking time — even days — between each session to reflect on your experience.
Be a Meditation Master
- Take your time — Don’t be shy about listening to sessions multiple times. You should feel comfortable with the skill you’re trying to develop in a session before moving on to the next one.
- Find your space — Before you begin each session, find a quiet space, free of distraction, where you can sit comfortably and focus your attention.
- Get seated — Although you can do meditation anywhere and in any position, you’ll be most successful in a seated, upright position. If you meditate while lying down, you can become tired or foggy. A seated position allows you to relax and be comfortable while remaining alert and aware. You may want to sit with a back support so that you can fully relax your body while remaining upright.
- Plan your time — You’ll also want to make sure you have enough time to complete your session in one sitting without interruption. If you do have to pause a session for any reason, restart from the beginning to experience its full benefit.
