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.
