17 June - 15 July 2024
Online - Mondays - 6.30-8.30 PM
Five guided 2hr sessions through Zoom PLUS
Your own App with 30 Days of Meditations to help you establish your own practice
Are you looking to feel more relaxed and calm, release anxiety and/or depression?
Are you having trouble sleeping?
Have you tried to meditate but struggled?
Do you believe you just can't meditate as your mind is too busy?
Would you like to learn self directed meditation, instead of listening to meditation recordings?
I have created this course for you to receive the mental and emotional benefits of a regular meditation practice which you can sustain also after the 30 days are over!
Meditation is the mental process you engage your mind in, that activates the relaxation response in the body. There are many types of meditation. Some require a lot of focus, some require some focus and some require little focus… In this course you will learn “Effortless meditation” which is a meditation technique based on Transcendental Meditation (TM), that requires very little focus while offering huge benefits!
The main concept of this type of mediation is that the mental state of ‘Meditation’ is a natural state for the mind, just like sleep is. The more you try to ‘get there’ the harder it gets (just like sleep ;-) ). In effortless meditation you just allow the mind to find its way ‘home’ to this state, trusting that it will.
Everything in this type of meditation is effortless: your position, your attitude, your mind floating in and out of thought, emotions coming and going, sensations in your body, noises in your environment… This is ALL part of your meditation! There is NO forcing, NO keeping focus, NO aiming for a ‘good’ mediation and there is NO aiming for a still mind or to let go of your thoughts.…
In this course I will explain how meditation impacts your nervous system, what happens in your brain and I will show you that meditation is not 'difficult' - as many people think - as I will teach you how to meditate effortlessly. Five sessions AND access to your own App will help and inspire you to meditate daily for the 30 days allowing you to experience the calming, stress reducing effects of a regular meditation practice, which I know will change your life!
By the end of this course, you will have established your own 'self directed' practice. Because of this you will sleep better, feel more in control of your emotions, feel physically healthier, be less reactive, and have better relationships with the people around you.
Rated 5/5. "I was recommended to take this course given the stressful nature of my work and also as I was experiencing anxiety during special circumstances. The course, without a doubt, has given me some critical insight and practical techniques on how to achieve relative calmness and less stress. I have been able to experience calmness in a way which I have not experienced before. Great course in every aspect." (Ash)
Rated 5/5. "From day 2 I felt the benefits of meditation!! Anneriek demystifies all the ‘woo woo’ of meditation with science based facts. She encourages and coaxes when you stumble with it and is always available to listen. I cannot recommend this course highly enough. Thank you Anneriek this changed my life, I am a much better version of me now - something I always searched for. That 20 minutes in the morning is a practice I prioritise." (Pam)

WHAT OTHERS SAY
Rated 5/5. I never really understood the how of meditation. This course took a deep dive. I loved the gradual pace that allowed me to explore all that Anneriek taught. Absolutely loved it. (Alisha)
Rates 5/5. The entire course was effortless. I not only learnt the science behind meditation and the brain but most importantly meditation doesn't just need to be about sitting super still and going into magical Zen mode. I learnt to accept my monkey mind and be at peace with my mind wondering but then how to reign it in and feel complete calmness. I truly could not have learnt this without Anneriek and her guidance. (Ana)
Rated 5/5. This course taught me to build meditation into the natural flow of my day. It’s not a chore, it’s a natural practice. (Dave)
Rated 5/5. The course exceeded my expectations and has made meditation an essential daily ritual. (Allyson)
Rated 5/5. Exceeded my expectations. I have received a lifelong gift to ‘declutter’ my thoughts and sit with my mantra in peace ready to move into my day with focus, calm and clarity. (Jenny)
Rated 5/5. I loved the small group, we felt safe to openly share our experiences with like minded people. The chat room was inspiring & helpful. Anneriek has the ability to hold a beautiful safe space for people to connect to her, each other & themselves ❤️ (Ange)
Rated 5/5. I signed up for this course because I had struggled to prioritise having a meditation practice. By the end of the course, I had a solid daily practice and a handful of intense emotional releases that gave me closure on events I didn’t realise I needed closure on. The group sessions were definitely something I looked forward to every week. In them, Anneriek dove deeper behind the science of meditation and the group shared experiences and struggles that were met with relatability and the utmost support. (Dee)

I finally can say "I meditated" and "I can meditate" - this course taught me so much about how meditation could work for me and it was ok to drift off to sleep in some of them or not be fully still. In actual fact I was able to resolve some past childhood trauma in one of the sessions. I finally felt that state of euphoria that people often talk about with meditation that I'd never experienced before. This course has taught me so much...
