Unit 1 | Introduction to RAINDROP
Learn the basics of the RAINDROP approach and how to apply it in daily life.
Unit 2 | R Is for Recognition
Cultivate the ability to wake up to what's happening. Learn how to work with the opposite of recognition: distraction.
Unit 3 | A Is for Acceptance
Distinguish between acceptance and its near enemies. Learn how to work with resistance.
Unit 4 | I Is for Interest
Can we bring genuine interest to our practice? Explore ways of stepping out of obliviousness into the present.
Unit 5 | N Is for Non-Identification
It can be tempting to misinterpret events and phenomena as being about ourselves. We don't have to take things personally.
Unit 6 | Practicing RAINDROP in Our Lives
Practice bringing everything you've learned together and into your life. Includes instructions for a walking meditation, with beautiful landscape shots from Michele’s home in Hawaii.
Each of the six units will offer roughly one hour of material to work with, including weekly video teachings, prompts for reflection, optional quizzes, and a communal discussion board. There will also be suggested take-home practices, including guided meditations, for you to explore throughout the week. You are invited to study at your own pace.
