What others are saying

about learning with Mindful Master

A Wonderful Treasure!

Clare M.

I took this course right after one of my best friends passed away. I was struggling with overthinking everything, then this course came along and truly helped me relax and quiet my mind. It also opened my eyes to the things I do and helped me become more aware of my surroundings. The instructor was also open to answering questions and made sure I understood the meditations! So glad I took this course!

An open window to the world of mindfulness

Connie N.

I have dealt with severe anxiety and depression for many years now. I wanted to do something to help me refocus my energy and thoughts. Andrew's voice was so calming and relaxing. This program helped me to focus and I have used the techniques to help during times of anxiety. I would recommend this program to anyone!

Live and Love More!

Debra C.

I had three goals when I signed up for the mindfulness course: become more attuned with my body, quiet my mind to find the peace within, and learn to move thru the aches and pains brought about by aging. Andrew’s calm, soothing voice was pleasant to listen to. He did an excellent job of explaining and guiding us through the meditations. By practicing the guided meditations, listening to the talks, taking part in the chats, and doing the suggested practices throughout the week, I achieved my goals and so much more! Today I find myself living more - aware of the present moment and mindful of my connectedness to not only my humanity but all of humanity. I also learned I like yoga! I believe this course would be of benefit to everyone!

Finding myself

Samantha T.

Mindful Master is a wonderful journey to realizing how mindfulness influences and benefits every aspect of my life. I apply this knowledge to the struggles of working from home and to difficult family relationships. I have learned a much-needed appreciation for taking time for myself. I discovered the benefit of grounding myself in the present moment, noticing my surroundings, and checking in with my feelings - it has been truly enlightening, and I am excited to join the next course!

Come and meditate with me!

My passion is to be truly present! I love nothing more than sharing my knowledge and love for mindfulness with others. So, what are you waiting for? Come and learn meditation with me. I'm certain you are going to love it!

Guiding Instructor

Andrew Paul

Andrew Paul was first exposed to meditation at a Benedictine Monastery through the practices of Lectio Divina and Contemplative Prayer. He deepened his mindfulness practice at the Washington D.C. Buddhist Vihara, receiving the teachings developed by Bhante Gunaratana. Later, Andrew spent time at the Plum Village Monastery in the south of France, training under Thích Nhất Hạnh. He has studied the teachings and methods of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), S.N. Goenka’s Vipassana Meditation, Alan Watts, and many others. Andrew has guided spiritual retreats, lead small group workshops, spoken publicly to leadership and spiritual conferences, and is thrilled to share the transformational gift of mindfulness with others!

Practice and willingness are our mantras!

Mindfulness is cultivated through practice, and as you develop the skill of acceptance, it becomes more agile and resilient!

You and your life are the focus of this course. It's about your body and mind and how you grow to be in a more intimate relationship with them. This is an invitation to experiment and practice with mindfulness and its application to your daily life.

Learning a new skill may be challenging and success will not always come immediately but with willingness and the proper resources, your practice will surely be rewarded. What's more, our course will guide you every step of the way. Who knows where your mindfulness journey may take you.

Step by Step

The learning process that has worked best for mindfulness students

It can be quite overwhelming as a beginner. You can be confused about the best way to start. The material presented in this course has guided hundreds of students just like you to a calmer, more satisfying life. The course has been honed and improved so that most questions asked, and most problems faced by new students are incorporated and presented directly within the weekly lessons. The secret to success is patience and trust - and following our tried and true approach step by step.

The power of mindfulness

A balanced and focused life

This practice gives you so much more than simply leading a more stress-free life. Whether you sit quietly, eat slowly, speak intentionally, listen deeply, or walk mindfully, you will find yourself relaxing into the present. And when you live in the present you will master the art of courage with compassion, of intensity with gentleness, and of truly living amidst the pleasures and pains of life.

Discover your true self

Reignite the freedom and joy that eight-year-old you would be proud of

Our aim is to inspire you as well as teach you. This course is unique from other courses. It's not just about sitting still and following the breath. It's fully engaged being, being inspired, connecting deeply with your self and others, experiencing your natural surroundings, appreciating pain, and realizing the joy of living in the wonder-full here and now.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this course for you?

  • When does the course start?

    Right when you enroll! This six-week course begins at the time of your completed registration. Subsequent lessons are released weekly at the same time. Classes are generally 90-120 minutes with some variation. Plan a half-day (3-4 hours) for the Week 6 Mini-Retreat.

  • Do I have to do it in one session?

    We recommend completing each weekly class in one sitting; however, each class is broken into shorter lessons so you can listen over time as your schedule permits. Your registration remains active for two weeks following the end of the six-week course to allow you time to work at your own pace.

  • What do I need for the first week?

    I'm glad you asked! We recommend finding a quiet place to sit where you won't be interrupted. Bring several raisins, craisins, grapes, berries, or some other little pieces of dried fruit for the eating meditation. Maybe have a journal to take notes and track your experience. Wear some comfortable clothes and bring your Willingness!

  • How do I sit?

    For the meditations, simply sit with an upright and comfortable posture, either on a straight-back chair or a firm cushion. No need for advanced yoga poses here!

  • Am I doing it right?

    Good news! There is no 'right way' to meditate. Simply sitting down to meditate is already doing it right. Instead of getting down on ourselves, or judging ourselves, or thinking we 'should' be doing something different, we take this moment to accept what happened. Allow it to be and let it go. Mindfulness is simply being aware of what you are experiencing at the moment, we accept that and let it go. Accept and let go!
