Building a Meditation Practice is Hard.

If you’ve ever tried to start a meditation practice, you know how difficult it can be. Most people who want to meditate are stuck:

I Can't Meditate | Medivate

Does any of that look familiar? We’re not mind-readers: Almost every meditator goes through these issues, and more!

But your meditation practice doesn’t need to be held back in these ways.

You Can Build a Thriving Meditation Practice.

What does “thriving” mean? It’s simple: a meditation practice that you enjoy, that you look forward to, and that helps you in your life. And you can develop this kind of practice for yourself—no matter what your obstacles at the moment!

The Key: The Five Pillars of a Thriving Meditation Practice.

We’ve spent over four years talking to thousands of meditators, and we’ve found something simple and powerful: Every meditation practice needs five key elements to thrive. These are the Five Pillars of a Thriving Meditation Practice: Commitment, Connection, Inspiration, Adaptiveness, and Patience.

Together, the Five Pillars are the key to understanding your own meditation practice—both its strengths and challenges—and taking the right steps to help it flourish.
