Price: $500 USD
This is a 1-1 coaching program for meditators who would like to increase their practice time to 1 hour per day.
By the end of this 60-day program, you’ll have meditated for 60 hours. That means 1 hour per day.
We’ll have weekly check-ins where we talk about issues that come up during your practice. I’ll give you specific assignments related either to your practice or integrating your practice into your daily life. We’ll also sit and meditate together for a few minutes.
About the Process
For 60 days, meditating for 1 hour per day will be your highest priority.
This program is for people who are willing to commit to the process. If you can’t fit this into your schedule, now isn’t the time to commit.
This is for people who are willing to make sacrifices. If you’ll feel resentful about that, this isn’t for you.
If something comes up at work that you didn’t anticipate, have a conversation with your coworkers, or find a way to fit it in. Take time away from something else.
This is why we have 60 days. If you miss a day, for whatever reason, you can double up on another day. Even if you miss 5 days over the course of 60 days, you can sit for 6 hours on one day and make up for the lost time.
During the program, you’ll be asked to follow a set of rules:
- Meditate for 1 hour per day, in one sitting.
- Refrain from using recreational drugs or alcohol during the 60 days.
- While meditating, put your phone out of reach.
- Report honestly on what you did each day. There will be an online spreadsheet for you to log your sits.
- Tend to distractions before you begin sitting.
- If you must stop in the middle of a sit: if it’s an emergency, tend to the emergency and pick up where you left off. If it’s not an emergency, start over.
- Do not watch TV or listen to music while meditating.
Before Signing Up
To help you be successful, I’m asking you to ensure the following before signing up:
- Have a conversation with your housemates and any other important people in your life to make sure they are supportive of your meditation practice.
- Decide how this is going to fit into your work/school schedule.
- Have a quiet place in mind where you know you’ll be able to meditate for 1 hour every day.
- Make sure you have a timer.
Hi, I’m Michael. I meditate and play the piano. I also post a lot on Instagram (@no.michael.here) and talk about radical acceptance and lots of topics. That’s not filler language, btw. I’m serious. I don’t write words just to fill space. Each word has a meaning.
I hope you already know who I am. If you don’t, check out more of my stuff before signing up for this. I often do things differently, so I don’t want any unpleasant surprises.

Questions and Concerns
What if, after 60 days, I fall off the wagon and stop meditating?
After 60 days, do whatever you want. If you’re worried about this, you can sign up for another 60 days.
The timeframe of this program is 60 days. If you want to talk about the rest of your life, that’s a separate conversation. I’m not looking past that time right now, and I suggest you don’t either.
But, after 60 days, you’ll have removed obstacles that are getting in the way of your practice, and you’ll have gotten 60 days of meditation. The time is cumulative.
What if I can’t sit still for an hour?
You can shift your position. Don’t torture yourself. Sit and squirm if you want.
What if I have questions about how to meditate?
We can talk about that during our 1-1 sessions. I’ll give you precise instructions.
There’s too much noise at home to meditate.
This is why I ask you to have a conversation with your housemates and make sure they will support you in this.
What if I’m too tired at the end of the day to meditate?
Then stay up and do it anyway.
What if I can’t get up early enough to meditate?
That’s what alarm clocks are for.
What if I don’t want to meditate early in the morning or late at night?
Then do it in the middle of the day.
I’m a bit skeptical about meditation. I don’t understand why I should do it.
This program isn’t for you, then. It’s for people who already know meditation is right for them.
