@ John,

In the US, '101' is a term that refers to the basic course in post-secondary education. So in college if you started taking Spanish or English the very first course would be English 101 or Spanish 101.

In regards to that, she is saying Meditation 101, as in the basics. Hope tat helps.


This is an excellent article - it gives a wonderful introduction to the practice of meditation - demystifying it and making it possible for anyone to approach and embrace this wonderful and beneficial practice. thank you!

Excellent article thankyou, I very much enjoyed it! Even a seasoned practitioner can find benefit to their practice by revisiting the basics. However, please don't forget the practice of Bhakti Yoga which will heighten any practice of meditation.

For more info plse see


I don't know what is Meditation 101, it could be series of meditation or you are saying meditation is 101% truth!
What ever please just mention clearly in next post.

I have been practicing at home regularly since 2003. Primrily Hatha which evolved to Ashtanga now it's all about props. I just completed a meditation workshop with Sally Kempton and finally realize what has been the message from the start. Still the mind. My major shift occured when I learned how to relax into the divine seat and discovered how effortless and blissful meditation is.



I am an aspirant.
Yoga keeps me fit!
I am glad that you are doing a noble service
to the mankind.

Thanks to Patanjali for compiling a text like
"Ashatanga Yoga",
in which every thing is comprehended!





These series of meditations are easy to follow and very worthwhile. I found them very helpful, enjoyable and beneficial. Thank you.

Warmest wishes,


I've been struggling with a meditation practice and have written it off many times as something that is just not for me. Yet, I find myself coming back to it again and again. I'm aware enough to recognize that my desire to have a meditation practice is significant enough to pay attention to. Your simple and straightforward article has given me the tools I need to try it again and to not be so hard on myself. thank you!


I found this helpful. I started yoga in school in 10th grade.. I hated it at first! as I gone on an doing it I was losing weight and my body was so strong. I then realized I loved it. Meditating is awesome, just sitting and breathing, so relaxing:)
