You have wanted to have a consistent meditation practice, but haven't been able to find the focus or discipline for it.
You sense the sacred of the world, and want a way to connect with it and know it in your whole being.
You want to enjoy the proven physiological benefits of a long-term meditation practice: decreased anxiety, decreased depression, improved focus, memory, and problem solving, decreased systemic inflammation, increased grey matter in the brain, prolonged cell life, and more.
You want to enjoy the proven psychological and relational benefits of meditation: less reactivity, greater equanimity, greater tolerance and acceptance, deeper and more natural compassion, improved connections with loved ones, and a more natural tendency to see the beauty in the world.
You’d like to be guided into a deep understanding of some of Buddhism’s most beautiful and transformative teachings including surrender, letting go, non-reactivity, and the true meaning of the idea of no-self or “becoming nobody”.
You want to quell addictive and distracting behaviors such as social media scrolling, online shopping, excessive cannabis use, eating to soothe, and the like, so that your energy and other resources can be given to the things that matter to you.
You're self motivated and do well following guided, online course curriculum. (If you would do better in a group setting, and with live Q&A calls with Julia, please consider joining the annual group version in January. To find the annual group course, click on ALL COURSES in the top banner.)
Each week for 10 weeks, starting the day you enroll, you'll receive a new batch of audio lessons, contemplation prompts, and instructions for a gradually deepening meditation practice. A practice that ultimately permeates your every moment.
The lessons will range from the practical to the inspirational, progressively helping you overcome obstacles and resistance through insights, stories, and metaphors. The lessons will change your volition for meditation, which naturally changes your approach and the outcome.
There will be optional books recommended as well, to augment your learning. (Reading the books will not be mandatory or essential to your learning. They will be supplemental for those who wish to read them, and will create an even more immersive experience.)
You'll have access to this course material for 9 months, so you can take your time, and return often to the lessons shared. A deeper meditation practice takes time to mature and is a lifelong process. This course is designed with that in mind.

Julia carefully designs this course to provide support to all levels of students. I almost didn't sign up because I am have tried to start a practice many times, but it always fizzles out. I didn't think I could deal with another failed attempt. Little did I know this is a theme for others as well. The course helped me reframe the "failure". Julia's wonderful example of unconditional love and grace was just what I needed to gently begin anew again. And again. And again. Now I am more prepared to see life as a continual process of rebirth and renewal. I am much more likely now to be excited by the possibilities around the corner than I am to be filled with shame.Read Less

I cannot overstate how powerful this course is. If you're going to do one thing for yourself this year, do this. It is truly foundational to living well. While I had appreciated short guided meditations in the past, I had never established a regular practice, there was never enough time. I watched my entire relationship with time transform throughout this course and I now feel the elasticity and abundance each moment offers. This has improved my relationship with myself, with my family, friends, and colleagues. I feel more at ease, clearer in my thoughts, I'm even sleeping better. It's been life-changing and I'm grateful to continue unpacking all we learned in what will now be a life-long practice.Read Less

Over the years, I had attempted meditation several times with discouraging results. After taking Julia's Compassion Courses and Dream Trending Course, and benefiting so greatly from her teaching, I had complete confidence in her ability to lead me into a fulfilling meditation practice. I had also expected that Julia would, through this course, continue to guide me in the developing experience of Love manifesting throughout my life, which I see to be the ultimate goal of all her work. Become Ocean has been all that I had hoped for. Several weeks after the course, although it feels I still have a distance to go for my sitting to grow into a more highly beneficial meditation practice, I am so pleased to be sitting every day and to be continuing in my growth toward a daily lived experience of Love. The support of the community of participants in the course, in their comments and questions during the calls, as well between classes in the online space provided for discussion, was also very encouraging and enriching. The succession of courses I've taken with Julia have been life changing, and any single one of them would, I believe, be certain to be of substantial benefit to anyone having a yearning for an experience of greater Love and Peace.Read Less

The intentionality of this course is felt at every turn. There is space to engage at your own pace. Space to have accountability should be helpful to you. Space to explore teachings that are accessible if you are a beginner. Or you can access the infinite layers within each lesson that will enhance even the most seasoned practitioner's meditation practice. If you simply begin again after each time you faulter this course truly does set you up with the tools to cultivate and commit to a lifelong meditation practice.Read Less

I adored the process of taking this course. I went into it with an on-and-off meditation practice informed in part by Julia's Compassion Course, a many years but not consistent yoga practice, and my own instinctive approach to my practice. I've come out of it with a much richer awareness of the roots and function of the practice itself and a practical knowledge of styles of meditation that I can effectively incorporate into my daily life. Beyond that, my experience in this course has widened every corner of my spiritual life and inner world--bolstering lessons from the Compassion Course--redefining what I think I know about myself (or anything for that matter)--and lighting a path back to simplicity, love, and a gentle confidence that I don't need anything more than the present moment we share.Read Less

I have never been able to stick with a meditation practice. How can I know this course will change that?
This course is designed to change your volition for meditation at a deep level. It will walk you step by step into a longer and more consistent meditation practice, which will help you begin to touch into something deeper and more enjoyable. I can't guarantee that you will stick with it, but I can assure you this program will give you a clear path and a deeper and different kind of motivation than the mainstream has to offer.
I have trauma and meditation can sometimes dysregulate me. Is this course safe for me?
It depends. If you have a lot of unintegrated or unprocessed trauma and you are new to meditation, sitting with yourself could be overwhelming. But if you have trauma that you've processed and you are able to sit quietly with yourself, you will be fine. I do have training in trauma-sensitive mindfulness and the teachings in this course are trauma-informed. While there is no personal support included in this course, I am available to support you in your process with private 1:1 work, should you wish to engage my support that way.
For how long will I have access to the course materials?
You'll have access to the course materials for 9 months from enrollment.
What is your refund policy?

We want you to feel confident that there's absolutely no risk in joining this program. Only a path to ease, happiness, and wisdom. (Once we are beyond 7 days into the program, we cannot give refunds.)
