As someone who has finished more than 100 (currently at about 123) classes on Skillshare, I’ve seen both the best and the worst of the courses offered on the site. Luckily, there are very few of the latter – Skillshare is bursting at the seams with quality content. Unfortunately, this means that sifting through all of those excellent courses can be a bit intimidating. To get you started, I’m sharing my absolute favorite courses for meditation. They’re in no particular order. I’ll keep this up to date as I take new courses, so check back and have fun learning! tweet
By the way, Skillshare is a community of learners. It is also a community of wonderful teachers who can show you how to create monsters from ink blots or shoot photos from a helicopter. tweet
