Course Introduction

Effortless mindfulness is a dimension of consciousness that is already innate within us. So how do we access it? We'll begin this journey by taking a step back from the cloud of our contracted, chattering mind, so that we can start to shift into a place that is aware, connected, and open-hearted.

This week, we'll dive into the foundations of effortless mindfulness, see how it differs from other mindfulness practices, and familiarize ourselves with the basics.

"This is the ability to shift our consciousness in the midst of our day from contraction to effortless awareness."
