Meditating With the Body
Guided meditations are an effective and gentle way to cultivate awareness. These practices can be done independently or in a group setting. The Dharma Ocean curriculum is divided into 12 Units of teachings and practices that unfold over 24 months, allowing you to set aside 8-10 hours per week for self-study.
