Often, stress and anxiety are caused by the fundamental disharmony between body and mind; meditation helps bring mind and body together. When life encourages us to speed up to engage with its complexities, the practice of sitting and focusing on the breath helps equip us to better handle everything we do.

But meditation is also so much more.

Buddhists have known this for centuries: meditation can help you develop wisdom, become more compassionate, and be more confident. It will offer insights you didn’t have before. 

Get Started with Buddhist Meditation is taught by Susan Piver, the New York Times bestselling author and meditation teacher. Together with Lion’s Roar, she’s prepared this course to be a simple and sustainable way to learn to meditate, and to do it regularly. You’ll learn essential meditation techniques, and how meditation helps cultivate calm, clarity, and kindness.

Meditation will show you how to relax and lean into your life.

But don’t take our word for it.

Try it for yourself.
