So just about anybody could be interested in this course.

And each week they'll be different exercises, reading materials, meditations, and they'll be an opportunity for discussion as well with thousands of learners all around the world. And we'll also make a weekly feedback video to keep you on track.

You can go into as much depth as you'd like to, extra readings and extra links, and so on, but you decide how far you want to go each week. So if you're interested to join a community of thousands of learners around the world exploring mindfulness and applying it in their lives, then this might be a good course for you.
