This is the first session in my course on the Calm app, titled How to Meditate: A simple 30-day program for everyone. The aim of this course is to show not just how meditation can make you calmer, clearer, more open and compassionate. But also to show how the real training is learning how to be Ok with any moment. It’s the incredibly brave practice of being with the world exactly as it is, being with the changing highs and lows – inside you and outside you – and from there, beginning to embody a basic availability and humility that can never be taken away.
