What do we mean when we say bliss? In this first class, you'll learn to examine "bliss" as more than just a buzzword, but rather a powerful state of presence accessible through the practice of meditation.
As humans, we're prone to overreact to negative circumstances. By harnessing the power of responding versus reacting, you'll be more prepared to accept the things beyond your control and settle into true bliss—true presence
Meditation is a tool that, when used properly, can dramatically impact your quality of life. Learn how to use your practice to enter a state of sustainable inner stillness.
It's easy to overthink a meditation practice. In this class, you'll learn to let go of the need for control and instead approach meditation with a more relaxed and natural state of mind.
Many of us feel guilty for taking time for ourselves, but proper self-care is one of the best things we can do for our loved ones. Learn to look at your meditation practice as a way to show up completely in the lives of those important to you.
Allow the bliss state to direct you toward what is resonating most deeply in your heart, whatever that may be. This class will help you source intention internally, rather than searching externally for answers.
"Where is the bliss?” you may wonder, “and how do I know I’ve tapped into it?" In this class, learn to recognize the bliss state so you can begin to find it more frequently in meditation and throughout the day.
Rest and bliss go hand-in-hand. By allowing ourselves to welcome sleep, or rest, you'll become more familiar with the bliss state of mind.
Bliss can dramatically affect our energy levels. Here you'll start to learn how to use bliss as fuel, bringing the energy from your meditative state into everyday life.
Many of us have heard of the flow state in reference to sports, creative projects, or other activities that demand high levels of focus. In this lesson, you'll learn how to access the path of least resistance—the present moment—on a consistent and reliable basis.
While life's ups and downs might feel disruptive, there is something we can learn from every hardship. Here you'll examine how to use gratitude to help reframe your thoughts, and ultimately grow closer to the bliss within.
Bliss is a mechanism for extracting our highest truth, or internal knowledge of what is right. In this class you'll practice meditation to help stimulate the bliss state and notice what resonates as true for you.
There is a great connection between our mind and reality. Our intentions and thoughts can often change the course of our lives, for better and worse. Here you'll learn to develop awareness over your intent, better preparing you to select the thoughts that lead you on the plane to bliss.
One of the most powerful benefits of accessing the bliss within is compassion. Learn how you can use compassion to fuel forgiveness, and ultimately eliminate unnecessary negativity from your life.
With consistent meditation, you may begin experiencing a more tangible and refined sense of what’s right for you in this moment. In this class, you'll learn the tools to trust your experience and own your personal journey.
One of the biggest challenges we face when we encounter a meditation practice is creating the time do it. In this class, you'll deepen your confidence in your ability to commit, making it easier to regularly tap into your bliss.
Meditation is a judgement-free zone. By increasing your ability to appreciate both the "good" and "bad" things in life, you'll be able to develop the inner confirmation that you are exactly where you need to be.
Accessing the bliss within means aligning ego with spirit. Rather than dismiss the ego, this class teaches you how the spirit and ego can ultimately co-exist, so that you can follow your heart without feeling guilt or fear.
As we have more experiences with our inner nature, we evolve and refine our perceptual acuity to detect that same spirit within others. Today you'll learn to translate the lessons you're learning on a personal level and see the connection between your true nature and that of others.
Peace and happiness are byproducts of accessing this bliss within. In this meditation, you'll develop a better understanding of how true happiness is the natural state of your spirit, and how both peace and happiness are readily accessible whenever you need.
We've now practiced an array of meditation tools you can come back to throughout the rest of your life. As you continue with meditation, your practice will grow and blossom. In this last class, you'll learn techniques for furthering your practice, and allowing your bliss to flow into the rest of the world.

"Who or what is witnessing all of the thoughts, sensations, emotions, worries, hopes, and feelings you have? Who witnesses you falling asleep or waking up? What is the witness statemade of? Many of the world’s wisdom traditions identify the witness state as pure bliss. The raw material of spirit. In other words, bliss is your essence."
