Seattle, Washington July 25, 2012- Now people who are too busy to meditate can learn how to fit it into their already-too-busy schedules using an innovative online course offered through Udemy. Over a 3-week period, participants learn to relax and calm themselves by watching 10 lectures by Seattle-based meditation teacher Jerry Whiting. Students complete the course by using 14 MP3 files on their own once a day. Sequences of exercises are presented including a suite of 6-guided meditations. All you need are a pair of headphones, a quiet place, and as little as 10 minutes per day. There is no need to drive to a classroom, and experience the stress of traffic and rushing around. The course is completed via a very simple process of using a set of meditation timers of varying lengths that can be used after the course has been completed online.
Course content includes the benefits of regular meditation, simple relaxation exercises, binaural beats and brainwaves, autogenic training & progressive relaxation, as well as a reading list and links to research on meditation. This course teaches meditation as a mental exercise without religious or spiritual overtones. In this context meditation is defined as "concentrated relaxation".
The first lecture, "The Obligatory Intro & Overview" is free to watch. The full course is only $19. The video lectures can be watched anytime and the supplemental materials can be downloaded onto a computer, phone, or tablet.
