The Meditation Habit
with Monica Rottmann + Ruth Warren

6 Week Live Online Meditation Course
Monday 7 November – Sunday 18 December

Imagine feeling clear, calm and content…

Together we will:

  1. Learn to meditate
  2. Practice daily
  3. Get support to make it a habit

What makes this course different from apps and other courses are the live daily practice sessions.

Daily practice with support and accountability from Monica will help you embed your habit into your subconscious mind so that it will stick.

Because learning a new skill is one thing, making it a daily habit requires repetition, accountability and support.

Being calm makes us better at everything.

A calm mind makes life easier. We think better, are more creative, and make better decisions with a clear head.

Learning how to keep calm during uncertain times is the ultimate life hack that will give us the mental edge at work, create more connections in our relationships and helps us to feel better about ourselves.

This course won’t just teach you to meditate. It will teach you how the mind works, how to calm it down, overcome resistance, and create habits that stick.

Why start a Meditation Habit?

Thinking better and feeling better starts with our daily habits. Meditation isn’t about sitting still and stopping ourselves from thinking.

Meditation is a tool that makes life easier.

If you want to:

  • beat stress and anxiety

  • sleep better

  • feel calm instead of overreacting

  • think clearly

  • make better decisions

  • feel more connected

  • become present and grounded

then join the Meditation Habit.

We practise meditation to get better at life.

The Meditation Habit is for you if:

  • You’re an overthinker

  • You want to stress less

  • You want to make peace with your mind

  • You want to perform better at work

  • You want to be more present in you relationships

  • You want to be more resilient

  • You want to reduce anxiety and overwhelm

  • You’re curious about Meditation but you’ve never tried it before

  • You’ve tried Meditation before but can’t make it stick

  • You use Meditation apps but want to learn to be self-sufficient

Hello Friend,

If you’re reading this, you’re probably looking for answers. I know how that feels.

Before I discovered meditation, my mind was a whirlwind, and I was lost in my head. I thought it was just me that had a mind that wouldn’t stop thinking. I thought I was the only one who couldn’t quiet my mind.

When I studied meditation, I came to realise that there is nothing wrong with thinking. That thinking is a sign of life. Meditation gives us the tools to step back from our thoughts and find some mental space.

I believe that our mind is our greatest asset and that if we look after our mind, it will look after us. Our mind can be our friend or our enemy, but it’s up to us to learn how to befriend our minds.

I’m not a strict or dogmatic teacher. You don’t have to sit cross-legged or go vegetarian to meditate. I’m relaxed and easy-going and can help you make sense of how your mind works.

There is an alternative to stress and anxiety, but it requires us to do something different. Changing our habits can be scary for our ego and subconscious mind, which is why it helps to get support and accountability so that when resistance strikes (and it will), you have the support to overcome it.

You can learn meditation from books and the internet, but meditating in a group container will help you achieve your goals faster, just like a rising tide lifts all boats.

If you’re looking to make peace with your mind, then join me on this 6-week adventure.

Your future self will thank you for it.

What do people say about Meditating with Monica

Monica is the founder of Cultivate Calm Yoga, her signature programs are unique and effective and her style is supportive and engaging.

“I have really enjoyed learning from Monica. I have done a lot of other meditation courses without much success but Monica has such a great way of explaining concepts in a very real and down to earth way that I have been able to incorporate meditation into a daily practice. She has a great depth of knowledge and communicates that in ways that I can really relate to. I have felt so supported and comfortable with Monica on this journey. I cannot recommend her courses and coaching highly enough.” – Dee

“For anyone considering their first tentative steps into meditation, I can highly recommend Monica at Cultivate Calm Yoga. She is both informative and supportive as she guides you through the initial stages of learning the practice of meditation. As a Corporate professional, I had a fair amount of scepticism regarding the tangible benefits of meditation. However, I am pleased to say that it has opened up a whole new area of spiritual awareness and brought the added benefits of better sleep, greater awareness and general well being. Thank you, Monica, for demystifying the unknown and bringing clarity to my life. ” Kayleene

“Monica teaches meditation practice with clear explanation of the science and philosophy of meditation which really helped me understand what we were doing and why. Monica breaks down the components of meditation practice into easy to build-on steps. I have been on a number of meditation retreats and mindfulness training. I can absolutely say that learning with Monica is the best experience I have had.” Steph

“The primary element I look for in a yoga/meditation teacher is, “do they practice what they preach?” I have found that Monica certainly has this rare quality, this enables her to teach not only from a depth of real wisdom but also from the real-life day to day challenges that we all face and with a very relaxed common sense approach.

I have attended many yoga courses, classes and workshops over the years and I would have to say that being a participant in one of Monica’s programs I have witnessed her generosity, calm teaching methodology and most of all her openness. It is refreshing, inviting and a lot of fun.” – Richard

Meditation is a tool to calm the mind. Meditation is like taking our mind to the gym, yet instead of building muscle, we’re building our awareness.

As our awareness increases, we become less bothered by our thoughts.

When our thoughts no longer bother us, we feel calm, clear and content.

We will learn Mantra Meditation – this is where we repeat a word.
