Reduced anxiety

After Learn to Meditate, I feel calmer, find it easier to make meaningful decisions. I can now recognise anxiety and agitation and know how to deal with it – thank you!

This course brought a new dimension into my life which I am very grateful for.

Enjoying life more

Meditation has almost completely eliminated my insomnia. I am much happier and enjoying life more.

Peaceful

I feel calmer, more peaceful and more confident I can meet difficult emotions. Wish I had realised how powerful meditation is and learnt the techniques earlier in my life.
