I signed up for this class to up-level my meditation practice and to help me manage the stress that is coming from all areas of life. And WOW!! I got so much more than that. I gained a higher sense of appreciation for the present moment. The feeling of freedom I now receive once I am in that state of "being" is priceless. The simplicity of this technique allows me to enjoy every meditation practice! Finally doubts of “am I doing this right?” are gone! I am so happy that I invested in this class.

It's 3 am. You've been tossing and turning for the last thirty minutes. You're already dreading the sound of your morning alarm because you have a busy day tomorrow. You're exhausted but can't sleep because your mind won't stop thinking. Eventually, you manage to fall back asleep and squeeze in a couple more hours before your morning alarm goes off.
You wake up feeling like you need an IV of coffee and rush to make it to your first meeting. You open your laptop to a mountain of unread emails in your inbox and think "what the hell, it's 8am"! As the day goes by you work through your to-do list but it feels like you can never get caught up. Meanwhile, your personal work to-do list clouds your focus.
You grab more coffee and pull up Instagram to scroll a bit so you can get your mind off of things.
Later on, you meet with your boss and are given praise for the long hours you've been putting in. You fake a smile and tell her "it's no big deal" but on the inside, you feel like you're barely getting by and you desperately need a vacation. You remind yourself there are only 2 more days until the weekend.
It feels like your constantly juggling a million things. You're nervous that if you take a break, something will blow up or go wrong, so your mind races from one task to the next, strategizing and worrying about things that shouldn't even matter. Your busy mind is running the show and sometimes you get irritable or feel anxious.
Do you ever experience any of the below?
difficulty sitting still
anxious / depressed
If you're over there nodding your head wondering if things could be different, I know how you feel. I've been there before.
Take a moment to imagine yourself...
feeling happy, just because.
moving through your day with a sense of calm, even when things are challenging.
experiencing life with greater motivation, creativity, and focus then ever before.
not needing that 2pm coffee
handling difficult situations with grace + ease.
sleeping through the night peacefully.
While this 5,000 year old practice was birthed in the East, we need it more than anything now, here in the West. We live fast-paced and hectic lives where we rarely give ourselves the time to sit and simply "Be".
Hi, I'm Ellen! I want to share with you how one simple meditation technique, practiced for 20 minutes a day literally changed my life (and show you how it can change yours too!). You don't need anything but yourself and a place to sit, to make this practice work for you.
This style of meditation, The 1 Giant Mind "Being" Technique is approachable -- yes, even for those who say they "can't meditate"! You don't have to clear your mind, focus, or sit like a yogi.
In this course I will show you how to experience the power of your mind with this simple practice, help you become a confident meditator, and you'll leave the course feeling like "I GOT THIS".
Here's How It Works
We meet for 90 minutes each day, for 3 days, as a group. Over the course of these 3 interactive sessions, I will teach you how to meditate (like a boss) using the simple, yet powerful 1 Giant Mind "Being" technique. During the course and beyond you'll peel back the layers of stress and fatigue that have built up in your system and you'll get to experience that magical feeling of "Being".

Held digitally, through zoom so you can join from the comfort of your home.
The course includes access to my meditation community of 1 Giant Mind practitioners. This allows you to get ongoing support from myself and the practitioner community through our bi-weekly guided group meditations.
You'll learn about the science behind the meditation and how it helps release stress from the body.
I'll teach you the 1 Giant Mind technique and we'll meditate together. Then you'll have the opportunity to share about your experience and ask questions.
This session begins with a round of reports from your morning practice (yes, there's a little homework). We meditate together and share experiences again, using your reports to deepen your understanding of the technique. We close out with a discussion on accountability, habit formation, and a meditation challenge.
We'll check in on how your morning practice went and how you're feeling overall, making sure you're practicing correctly and feeling confident with the technique. We'll have our last meditation, followed by final reflections and questions. We'll close out the course with a discussion on the state of "Being".
You'll leave this course a confident, self sufficient meditator, ready to build on the momentum you've created!
What People Say
I used all sources to manage my anxiety and depression and nothing worked. The only thing I hadn't really tried was the one thing proven most highly effective to work. In fact, I used to roll my eyes at the thought of meditation.
I finally decided to invest in myself and take Ellen's meditation course. With the 1 Giant Mind Being technique, the accountability, and Ellen's support, I was able to form a habit. 100 days later, I can't imagine going a day without those very simple 20 minutes. I haven't had a depressive episode or anxiety attack since. My patience has skyrocketed and my ability to be kinder to myself has increased exponentially. Meditation saved life.
Amanda, Yoga Instructor
I had heard of the benefits of meditation for quite some time and was always interested in trying but never really committed myself to finding the time to do it. I made excuses as to why I couldn’t start and I didn’t have anyone to hold me accountable. That’s where Ellen came in; her course is just enough to get you started but not feel overwhelmed. Before I knew it, my body was actually begging me to meditate and it became my favorite time of the day. I am so thankful for Ellen’s guidance and I truly feel that she’s given me the tools to change my own life..
Alexis, Director of Digital Merchandising
I can't hype this meditation up enough! It's my #1 new favorite habit. I can handle stress with so much more patience and thought. This allows me to consider others involved more and soothe the situations as they come. It's also amazing how much rest my body is getting! So wonderful. I'm so thankful I got to learn the best technique from Ellen. Absolutely life changing!
I'm more alert, calm, and most importantly I handle stress so much better. Building a meditation practice into my self-care regimen has been CRITICAL to maintaining my mental health and resilience during this pandemic. I've become so much more self-aware, and it has subtly improved my relationships with others, with myself, and my ability to handle stress. This is a tool I now have in my self-care toolbox for the rest of my life.
Chloe, Product Manager
I've learned how powerful it is to simply be. There's so much to be discovered within by just taking time to slow down and breathe. This meditation has had such an amazing impact on my daily life as well. I'm less reactive, slower to anger, more flexible, and hold expectations more loosely. It's a continual journey and I've loved meditating without an app!
Madison, UX Design Manager
This meditation course truly changed my life. My thoughts are kinder. I feel more at peace in stressful situations. My brain fog is gone. I feel more present. And I know these are only the beginning stages of a life filled with more gratitude.
