There is a set of stereotypical images surrounding mindfulness and meditation in most of the mainstream media that we are looking to break so we can help more people successfully navigate thru their journey into achieving their goals: images of monks meditating for hours to achieve peace of mind or images of experiencing a cathartic experience while visiting a guru or foreign land á la “Eat Pray Love”
How can the rest of us achieve more joy, self-love and abundance without having to spend thousands of dollars going to remote Asian monasteries or spend hours in meditation?
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand time – continuing your education is the key to real self growth, self confidence and happiness. The greatest teachers and thinkers are on a constant quest for more knowledge and understanding of not only the world around them, but who they are in that world.
If you are keen to learn more about mindfulness and achieve more joy in your everyday life, Udemy has 3 courses I’ve handpicked for you. These are online courses you can finish in about 3hrs and include the condensed teachings of Buddhist masters Pema Chödrön, Jack Kornfield and Thích Nhất Hạnh who have dedicated their lives to bringing Eastern Buddhist philosophies to the West.
These courses are a way for these teachers to help more people who don’t have time to dedicate 4-5hrs daily to meditation and study of Buddhist philosophy (who does!). Their live seminars are few and expensive but these online courses who range at about $30 are now for a limited time with 30% off using the special coupon PICKTHEBRAIN30
