 Program Description:

Meditation is an important life skill. We humans do our best thinking when our minds are relaxed. Learning how to relax the mind helps us focus better and achieve better results.

Unfortunately, some people believe that meditation sends out “vibes” to the universe that can reduce violence and bring peace. We do not endorse this view. Meditation changes the brain, and we can bring positive change to the world when we use our brains!

At this point, there is little doubt that mindfulness can have beneficial effects, including helping people reduce stress and cultivate positive emotions. However, when presented by religious organizations, meditation often comes “packaged” with other beliefs that are not all that credible. It is the aim of this course to filter out anything dubious and only present practices that are consistent with mainstream academic science and to provide the participant with the information they need to decide whether humanist or secular meditation is right for them.

Topics Covered:

  • History of meditation
  • Recent research
  • What happens when you meditate
  • Pros and cons of meditation
  • Types of meditation
  • Is meditation consistent with a natural or secular worldview?

Reviews:

After I finished the course videos, I enjoyed and was moved by doing the first loving meditations Rick Heller guided. Now that I have this information about meditation, and have rather penetrated the mystique of it all, I think I might benefit from meditation. Glad I to have this non-supernatural guide. – Monica O’Reilly
