If you've ever been skeptical about meditation and its benefits or if you’re new to meditation and just want to dip your toes in to see what it’s all about, this program offers you an opportunity to explore the practice in an accessible, lighthearted way, so you can make up your own mind about it.
Yoga teacher and college professor Colin Hall brings you five short sessions that form a sampler of meditation practices. He begins each one with a brief discussion of some of the assumptions that people make about meditation (who practices it, what it requires, what it’s used for, and what its benefits are) and then guides you through a practice so you can experience its effects on your state of mind.
These uniquely fun and serious sessions are a straightforward way to check out meditation—feel free to do them at your pace and to return to them as often as you like.
