Meditation for Non-meditators

Vancouver, Canada


A course for those who can’t meditate

No, not for those who “get it”


Hello!

My name is Michael Persimmon and as you can see, I teach meditation very differently from others. 

I created this course because I want my non-meditating friends to relax and have the inner skills to cope with whatever else life throws at them.

And not just survive, but thrive in ways that they didn't know they were missing.

So are you ready to have less anxiety and worry on your mind?

Interested in being able to drop into sleep quickly?

React less and respond more?

Recover from emotional upsets in 15 minutes?

Or discover a deep place within that sages, saints, and mystics would speak of?

Yes, meditation does this all!


Better than YouTube

As it turns out, learning to meditate is not something that can be ...

     ...taught in two hours,
     ...nor learned from a YouTube video,
     ...nor mastered with a 30-day app.

The landscape of the mind, emotions and consciousness is too nuanced to cover in one afternoon nor with a one-size-fits-all model.

Just like learning anything else, it requires one-on-one training and support. Just as if you were learning to dance, or to fly a plane--feedback is vital!


“But what is it?” you ask

This “Meditation for Non-meditators” course is a four Sunday workshop focusing on your profound inner needs while respecting your apprehension about meditating.

You will sit comfortably in chairs and learn a set of techniques that charm the mind at ever-deeper levels, with many side-benefits (better sleep anyone? or heightened creativity?).

The techniques are mechanical in nature, they require no belief, and they are not a one-size-fits-all nor one-size-fits-most.

Most importantly, we'll proceed step-by-baby-step so you'll feel good about what you're learning.

The course’s emphasis is on giving you a complete understanding of the in’s and out’s of the mind-body connection in a jargon-free way so that you will feel confident about meditating on your own; and giving you a tangible inner experience that fuels your desire to continue.

The course feels more like an extended conversation rather than a lecture, and the time just flies by.  Really, people can't believe at how fast the time goes--it's a delight. (No, we're not meditating the entire time, so you can breathe easily!)

If you’ve tried and failed before, you’ll finally understand why it couldn't "take" and that it wasn't your fault. (Really.)

Finally, I have a rigorous 5-year training as a monk, and I would rather share with you all that I've learned, without oddness, lingo, gurus, nor hooks. I as the instructor take full responsibility for you "getting it", so there's no pressure on your side.


What about these exotic dark chocolates?

You may have heard that I teach with dark chocolates, and it's true! I'm passionate about food and I love to be creative with it. So they're teaching aids, though you’ll have to see for yourself how they fit in...


Yes, you can do it!

Anyone can meditate, if it's presented smartly and sustainably.

So even if you've tried and failed at meditation before, try a completely different way and prepare to be pleasantly surprised :)

And since it's by donation, what is there to lose, except your stress?
