What is meditation? How do I begin a practice? Is there a right and wrong way to learn? If you have questions about meditation—you’re not alone. That’s why we’ve created a 14-Day Meditation Challenge to answer your most pressing meditation questions and help you develop a new habit that could transform your stress levels, your relationship with yourself and others, and ultimately—your life. 

In this video, you'll learn how to handle all the thoughts and feelings that are likely to come up during meditation. By taking the attitude of "I don't know and I don't care" you can release those thoughts and begin the healing process.
