New Beginnings

For those interested in learning meditation, the options can be overwhelming. These exceptional instructors all have the rare ability to guide beginners - from the first uncertain steps to the rewards of advanced practice. Let them show you the essentials. 

A Time for Comfort & Healing

The holidays are meant to be a time of joy and celebration. But maybe you or someone you know may not be feeling that way. For those facing challenges or loss - and seeking to find solid ground to restore and heal - we recommend these programs.

For Book Lovers

Know someone who loves to cozy up with a good book? Whether they're trying to find some calm or embark on a thrilling new inner adventure, here are some customer-favorite good reads for the holidays.

Breathing for Body & Mind

The word "spirit" literally means "breath". What better way to get into the joyful spirit of the holidays than through the breath? With proven approaches based on meditation, yoga, qigong, and modern science, these experts show us the way.

Together for the Holidays

It's a time of year when we yearn for connection. But with the challenges of the past year, being with family or housemates may feel difficult. Or we may be facing loss and change. These exceptional teachers show us how to heal and balance, so we can nurture and support each other more fully.

Meditation in Motion

For those of us spending a lot of time inside and staring at screens, getting back into our bodies can make a real difference. These programs help us to balance and rejuvenate with effective and simple-to-learn body-based practices. 

Revisiting Christianity

Amid our holiday celebrations, the deeper spiritual waters of Christmas quietly flow. The teachers here invite us to explore the hidden revelations and practices of Christianity-through contemplative, mystical, and direct experience. 

For Therapists & Healers

Learning and growing supports not only your clients but yourself. If you're looking to expand your tool set, audio and video learning can make the experience especially engaging. For professionals - or anyone seeking in-depth guidance - we recommend these top teachers and topics at Sounds True.
