You will be provided with a tracking sheet to check off the days of your practice as you move through the course. I am so glad that you are interested in learning more & deepening your meditation Practice. The techniques that I have included in this course helped me to go from an occasional meditator (that didn’t really enjoy it) to someone who looks forward to their daily practice. It is my purpose and my passion to share what I have learned so that you can soak in the benefits of meditation in your own life. I hope to see you in the course!If you have any questions now or during the course, please reach out to me.
