How to Meditate Without Even Trying

Online Course. Meditation works best when there's no trying or effort. It's about allowing the mind to relax. Once you stop all effort and striving, you'll find the mind settles down naturally into a state of quiet.

The course takes you from basic practices of being present to some of the new techniques that Peter has been teaching his students in recent years. They are very simple to apply, but profoundly effective.
