the 30-Day Mindfulness Challenge Audio Archive

Click here for the audio archive of the 30 consecutive days of one-hour sessions Doug lead  at Mountain Yoga in South Lake Tahoe in the winter of 2014.

Each session includes detailed and clear instruction as well as a guided meditation.

Together the 29 daily sessions form a comprehensive introduction to how to meditate and what to meditate on.

The 30th day was an all-day retreat. Audio for that will be posted soon. Check back and download audio to guide your own single-day retreat.

Help Support Doug’s 2016 Retreat

Your donation contributes to the continuation of my teaching, my deeper studies, and the nourishing retreats with my own teachers.

In 2015 I was able to spend nearly 5 months in retreat and I’m hoping to spend nearly 2 months in solitary practice in 2016

What I learn in retreat makes its way immediately into my own teachings.

If you would like to make a contribution toward retreat expenses you can donate securely through PayPal.

Thank you.I hope the benefit of your investment will be widely spread.
