Description

Get Your Sit Together: 28 Days to Develop a Rock-Solid Daily Meditation Habit is a 28-day meditation event helping you to set up the habit of meditating daily.

The benefits of regular meditation have been demonstrated again and again in multiple studies. Meditating makes you happier, is good for your health, protects your brain from aging, boosts your intelligence, and helps reduce pain, stress, and depression. Knowing all this, though, is not enough, and it’s not easy to set up a regular meditation practice. But we’re here to help you!

Grounded in Bodhipaksa's three decades of meditation practice, and rooted in the science of motivation and habit formation, this course will explore the principles involved in overcoming resistance and procrastination, and in creating and sustaining the positive habit of regular meditation. Whether you're a complete beginner to meditation or someone who's had difficulty establishing a regular meditation practice, we can help you get your sit together!

Drawing on the latest research on motivation and habit-building, along with timeless insights from Buddhist psychology, we'll help you to commit to sit daily, no matter what, so that you can experience the benefits of regular meditation.

Course benefits

This course will help you to:

  • Get beyond the resistance that stops you from establishing and sticking to a healthy lifestyle
  • Employ a variety of support strategies that will help you stick to your positive intentions
  • Drop self-criticism and instead focus on motivating yourself through emotional rewards
  • Develop confidence in your ability to set up the habit of meditating daily
  • Change your self-view so that you let go of limiting ways of seeing yourself
  • Have a greater sense of being in control of your own life

Course format

Clear, practical and down-to-earth, this course will help you to transform your life in radical ways. You’ll receive:

  • Daily guidance in the form of an email from Bodhipaksa, containing reflections, meditation instructions, and suggestions for practice in daily life.
  • Eight guided meditation recordings (from 8 to 30 minutes in length: average is 15 minutes).
  • An online community where you can share your experiences, ask questions, and receive support and encouragement.

This event is suitable for complete beginners to meditation, as well as those who have struggled to keep their existing practice going.
