Meditation & Chocolate Course for Creatives

 No, not for normal people

Hello!

My name is Michael Persimmon and as you can see, I teach meditation very differently from others. 

I created this course because I want my creative friends to have the inner skills to cope with whatever life throws at them.

And not just survive, but thrive in ways that they didn't know they were missing.

My parents and school teachers never taught me some of the most fundamental things, such why do we have thoughts?; could they be stopped?; what do the thoughts say about me?; why do some people get depressed and others don't?; is there a "one mind we all share", and if so, how do I tap into it?  Really tap into it?

This is just a small sample of what I want to cover with you, which is why I created a four day course.

Better than YouTube

As it turns out, learning to meditate is not something that can be taught in two hours nor learned from a YouTube video--the landscape of the mind, emotions and consciousness is too nuanced to cover in one afternoon. Like truly learning anything, it requires one-on-one training.

Personally, I think it'll be worth it just so you can see how the mind-body connection works and how to recover from emotional blow-ups in 15 minutes.

“But what is it?” you ask

This “Meditation & Chocolate Course” is a four Sunday workshop focusing on the personal and career needs of creative professionals.

You will sit comfortably in chairs and learn a set of inner techniques that charm the mind at ever-deeper levels, with many side-benefits (better sleep anyone?)

The techniques are mechanical in nature, they require no belief, and they are not one-size-fits-all. 

The course’s emphasis is on giving you a complete understanding of the in’s and out’s of the mind-body connection in a jargon-free way so that you will feel confident about meditating on your own.

The course feels more like an extended conversation than a lecture, and the time just flies by. 

If you’ve tried and failed before, you’ll finally understand why it couldn't "take" and that it wasn't your fault. 

What about these exotic dark chocolates?

I'm passionate about food and I love to be creative with it. So they're teaching aids, though you’ll have to see for yourself how they fit in.

Yes, you can do it!

Anyone can meditate, if they are taught properly.

So even if you've tried and failed at meditation before, my support will make all the difference in the world. Promise.
