Succeeding in our Classes

Students StudyingTo be a successful learner in an online course you should be self-motivated and comfortable using the web. To get the most from the courses you should enjoy the video teachings, complete the readings, practice using the guided meditation recordings, and engage with your classmates and mentor. We will make every effort to make sure that the class is enjoyable and you succeed. You will connect with lots of new people and build lasting relationships while learning methods that will help you more deeply enjoy life.

All of our classes require a broadband Internet connection such as DSL or cable modem, for we make extensive use of video recordings. If you can view YouTube or other Internet video sites without frequent pauses and stalls you have an adequate broadband connection. It helps to be familiar with posting to discussion boards or other interactive sites like Facebook, for contributing to online class discussions will help you connect with your classmates and instructors, and get the most out of our courses. Our site works with any of the major web browsers on Windows, Mac OS, IOS mobile devices (iPads and iPhones) and Android devices. Our mentors will help you work through technical problems and resolve any difficulties you might have. Our course system automatically reformats materials to play well on small screens when you use a mobile device.

If you have been hesitant to go to a meditation center or retreat, an online class can be a great way to explore meditation. We understand taking a meditation class can be a big step, and we will support you in your exploration. If you are experienced meditator, our online classes can help you expand your knowledge and understanding, connect with a broader group of practitioners, and work closely with experienced mentors. In both case, through our courses you will connect with a community of great people intent upon enriching and deepening their lives.
