Meditation is a vital practice for personal development. The ancient art carries many benefits, from reducing stress and enhancing creativity, to delaying aging and cultivating joy. Unfortunately, the traditional way meditation is taught can make it seem like a boring chore. Skillshare's Meditation 101 course aims to change the perception of meditation to show that it can be enjoyable, simple, and easily integrated into your daily routine.

The course is led by documentary filmmaker Dandan Liu, who sees creativity as a basis for a joyful, meaningful life. Liu's passion for creativity led him to spend time in monasteries around the world learning the best meditation practices.

Meditation 101 covers the myths of meditation and teaches techniques on posture, breathing, and combatting unpleasant thoughts. Liu reveals the scientifically backed benefits and shares how to integrate meditation into your everyday life.

Favorite quote

Meditation can be a fancy word. So I like to approach it more as a relaxation, as a coming home to yourself.
