This online workshop addresses the most common questions, misunderstandings and confusing bits about meditation. It covers the essential how’s and why’s of creating a stable practice. The course will be run over 3 weeks, online as a group. Included are:
12 pre-recorded videos
4 live Q&A’s and live guided meditations
a course manual
and plentiful support from Kate.
We’ll explore many different aspects and approaches to and also queries about meditation. Such as
How do I quiet my mind and what do I do with my thoughts?
What is the point? What is meditation for? How is it different to just sitting and thinking?
I know it is good for me, but how do I make myself do it? How do I meditate consistently?
What technique am I supposed to be using? What is the right way to do it?
Am I supposed to be using guidance or do it on my own? And, how do I do it on my own?
In addition, the course addresses the struggles that Kate personally experienced as a beginner, and the mountains of wisdom and understanding that she has gathered along the way.
