With our busy schedules, it’s too easy to put off meditation practice in place of family commitments, plans with friends, and mindless Internet surfing. But how different would you feel if you meditated every day for a month? In partnership with bestselling author and teacher Sharon Salzberg and Vipassana instructor Joseph Goldstein, we’re helping you jump back into your meditation practice with our new e-book, Tricycle Teachings: Commit to Sit, the perfect companion to our annual 28-day meditation challenge this February. For those who would like a structured program to help them through the month, this e-book features week by week meditation instructions, challenges, and tips for both beginner and experienced practitioners alike.
