Meditate and Wonder's Official Mindfulness Meditation Course is Here!
I'm sure you've heard of all of the magnificent benefits of meditation... it increases happiness and decreases stress. It helps you find clarity, remain calm in difficult situations, and focus when you feel distracted by negative emotions or frustrating people/situations.
I don't think there are many people who would admit they don't want those kinds of results in their life...
But I also don't think that many people believe that mindfulness meditation can bring about all of those results.
You probably heard the research, and you probably listened to the famous people who claim meditation changed their lives for the better... And then you probably thought the research and the famous people lied. Okay, maybe they didn't lie but they might have stretched the truth. You probably decided that meditation just wasn't for you.
-I don't know what mindfulness meditation is and I don't have time to learn it.
-I tried it once or twice but sitting silently for too long was uncomfortable and honestly... a little boring. (Okay, REALLY boring. And completely pointless).
-I'm not willing to practice mindfulness for years before I can experience any benefits.
-My mind will never be silent enough to meditate.
-I'm too busy, too outgoing, too young, too old, too set in my ways, and/or too overwhelmed to practice mindfulness.
And let me tell you... you're definitely not the first or only person to have any of those thoughts.
None of those thoughts are actually true!
...Here's your first mindfulness lesson:
Those are all interpretations! Those statements are just judgments about an activity that you might not even be that familiar with.
Those worries are predictions about how you expect you'll feel after practicing mindfulness. They're the result of your mind attempting to make sense of something new.
If you're already anticipating that you're to busy to try mindfulness... you're predicting that you'll never be able to be mindful while living your life...
But have you even tried it yet?
Or are you too occupied with living in the future... too addicted to banking on your predictions to give it a shot?
If you're ready to learn how to find peace in the present moment, let go of the weight of stresses and worries, and truly learn how to understand and befriend your thoughts... the mindful life is for you! (And so is this course!)
Mindfulness meditation doesn't have to be hard. You don't need a Ph.D.. Your practice doesn't have to be perfect. And you don't have to escape your life and retreat to the mountains to get started.
The Power of Mindfulness Meditation
Living mindfully allowed me to stop comparing myself to people on Facebook and Instagram... and all of the other real-life people. Mindfulness helped me let go of my anxious tendencies, and in place of them I learned to practice self-love and compassion in the best and the worst of situations.
I went from an overly stressed, obsessive second-guesser who was strapped for time and tired of hearing about everyone else's meditation success stories...
Accepting my thoughts and understanding the deep connection between my emotions and my mind, redefining stress and using it as a gift, and letting go of the expectations and assessments of other people.
I really started LIVING!
Mindfulness meditation brought these things into my life, and now I want to help bring them to yours! I know how powerful and impactful this practice can be. I know it because I've lived it firsthand.
I used to be a college writing & critical thinking instructor who was miserable, constantly nervous, and filled with anxiety. I desperately wanted to leave the field of work I'd invested years of education and thousands of dollars in.
I was terrified of making the wrong decisions, worried about disappointing others, and completely emotionally paralyzed. So instead of taking a leap of faith, I'd walk into a job I knew I wanted to leave with a sinking feeling in my stomach and a pounding headache.
And although at one point although I'd been meditating (inconsistently) for years... "real life" always seemed to make peace impossible to access.
But when I committed to a mindfulness practice... meditation truly became a LIFESTYLE. I was able to find peace in every situation.
I learned to build a lifestyle where anxiety was unnecessary, the wrong decision no longer existed, and I actually began to live in peace more than chaos.
Mindfulness changed my life... not just because it's a magical, mystical practice, and not just because I learned to do it the "right" way.
It changed my life because it helped me see the world clearly. It helped me understand myself and my mind. It helped me make decisions I never would have been comfortable making (like finally leaving teaching and deciding to blog and teach online full time). It helped me stay sane during my first year of entrepreneurship. It helped me become who I always knew I was internally.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Have you been hesitating to make decisions you KNOW are good for you because you're too afraid? Are you consumed with self-doubt and tired of living the same unfulfilled life? Do you feel like the days and months go by and you don't really have much to show for it?
This course will help you bring the magic back into your life! It will show you that meditation is for YOU, and it will help you learn the exact steps to take to apply mindfulness to every aspect of your life!
Right now, YOU have all of the tools you need to practice mindfulness meditation and become who you know you are inside.
This course helps you access those tools and put them to use in a way that sets you up to trust your intuition, find your happiness, and really absorb every single second of your life. This isn't about simply sitting on the floor and closing your eyes for a couple of minutes. It's about developing a complete mindfulness lifestyle.
You CAN learn to practice mindfulness meditation without getting frustrated, getting bored, giving up, and deciding that mindfulness simply isn't for you.
Like any habit, mindfulness meditation becomes more natural, more familiar to you over time, but that doesn't mean that the benefits are out of reach if you're just starting out.
I've been there, and I want to help you find your path to a mindfulness practice that fits your life.
In this course, I spill it all!
I've created the practical, no-nonsensee, easy to digest mindfulness meditation course for the overworked and overwhelmed YOU!
No gurus, crystals, religious affiliations, or previous knowledge needed...
*I'll walk you, step by step, through the exact process of how I crafted a powerful mindfulness practice that released me from the grips of stress and anxiety, overwhelm and indecision. We'll work through understanding mindfulness meditation and shaping our expectations so that when we get into daily practice, we really understand what we're doing and why it matters.
*And then we'll work on threading our new knowledge through our daily lives, for the times when we aren't sitting in silence, for the moments when we aren't perched on a cushion, for the moments when maybe we're sitting in traffic, or in an uncomfortable meeting, or in the middle of a frustrating conflict.
*We'll go through 6 weeks of daily mini guided meditations that build on the themes discussed in the lesson of the week... designed to be effective and quick enough for you to use anytime, as many times as necessary!
Take A Look At What You're Getting
Including Modules Dedicated to:
We will explore what mindfulness means in all of its interpretations, and then decide what mindfulness meditation means for us - for the purposes of this course. We'll then use that definition to guide our journey forward - helping us to identify what to expect over the next 6 weeks. We'll also cover what some of the common benefits of mindfulness meditation are, how long we have to wait until we experience the benefits, and what a mindful lifestyle might look and feel like.
See, mindfulness is all about awareness... and once we can fully understand what awareness is, how to value and prioritize awareness, and how to use it to cultivate a deeper understanding of the present moment (and consequently, our thoughts about that moment) things really start to change. We'll uncover the significance of being present and the importance of living on purpose. That will be our work in this module.

We'll learn what it means to think about the way we think, and how this process helps us when living mindfully. We'll explore what a thought is, our thoughts in relation to our emotions, and the actions we often take in response to our emotions. We'll get practice in paying attention to the things we typically dismiss or ignore, and discuss how these new areas of focus change or solidify the way we understand ourselves and the world around us.
It's time to redefine our stress! If you think it's impossible, think again. Mindfulness gives us the opportunity to stop our spiral of negativity before it becomes too large for us to handle... We'll explore what stress is and where it comes from, how we tend to understand and deal with stress, and how mindfulness can help us begin to embrace and even benefit from stress.
We'll bust open the common misconceptions about the self-love movement and explore how mindfulness can help us take self-love from a cheesy fad to a cornerstone of our lives. We'll look at how mindfulness helps us bring acceptance and compassion into our lives, and we'll learn how we can withstand failure and disappointment.
Although mindfulness meditation is a peace-inducing practice, sometimes, especially when we're just beginning our practice, we can find it frustrating, it can seem like it doesn't work, and we might feel like living mindfully is the absolute last thing we want to do... In this module we'll talk about how to deal with challenges in our practice, we'll work with our problematic mindsets, and work on learning to let go of our limitations and self-sabotaging beliefs so that we can truly observe the thoughts as they come. We'll talk about why letting go actually means taking action, and we'll explore how a mindful mindset can help us eliminate many of our destructive habits, if we're willing.
In the last module we'll talk about how to bring what you've learned in this course with you into the rest of your life. We'll create habits for observing and creating tiny moments of bliss, we'll explore mindfulness tips for making a great day even better, and we'll build a daily mindfulness routine tailored to your specific needs - ultimately leaving you with a blueprint for your customized mindful lifestyle - more than just a sitting meditation - something you can do anytime, anyplace, for as long or as little as you need.
Stop reliving the pain of the past and relying on the results of the future...
Find joy, find peace, find acceptance, find presence in your NOW.

Practicing Peace in the Present Moment: From Overwhelmed and Overworked to Mindful and Meditative in 6 Weeks!
Who am I?
My name is Djinji Jimenez and I am the creator of MeditateandWonder.com (previously The Truth Practice) and the teacher of this course! I'm a self-care and mindfulness mentor and writer who is dedicated to helping women learn how to bring the wonder and joy to the forefront of their lives. I'm SO passionate about this work because there was a time in my life when I didn't believe living with daily wonder and joy were possible.
4 years ago, I'd just completed an MFA program in Writing and had dedicated 6 years of my life to the craft of language, storytelling, and teaching. I'd done everything everyone wanted me to do. Gone to college, gone to graduate school, pursued an upstanding career... I'd checked the boxes and yet I found myself completely unhappy.
As I pushed through my post-MFA job day after day, my body and soul found ways to let me know just how far away from my path I'd ended up. Panic attacks. Pain. Asthma. Memory issues. Deep sadness. Lack of focus. Worry. Exhaustion...
I felt like I had nothing to show for all of my hard work... except for frustration and road blocks. I had no idea how to figure out what I wanted for myself and no clue what path I should take to find any new options. I wasn't sure any new options existed.
But when I learned to quiet my mind, when I learned to look within, when I learned to live life in awareness, when I learned to truly practice self-love, when I studied and embraced mindfulness as a way of life...
It all changed.
I let go. I followed my intuition. I woke up appreciating every breath. And I figured out how to let myself off the hook. No more autopilot. Mo more settling. No more arguing for my limitations. No more pursuit of perfection. Just me. Just living.
Does this experience mean that I never experience struggle or frustration anymore? No! I'm still human. This process of discovery and mindfulness doesn't end... I encounter new situations that require me to practice awareness and challenge my ability to remain centered all the time. I'm always paying attention to life and the signs that pop up. But this process doesn't plague me anymore. It fuels me. I love it. And I gain so much passion, so much energy, so much freedom from being able to observe it without getting wrapped up in misery or overwhelm.
I've learned that nothing is ever wasted. I've learned that every moment brings an opportunity for meditation... for peace.
And I want the same for you!
Welcome to the modern day mindfulness course that will help you stop "hanging in there" and begin thriving!

How quickly will I get results?
Mindfulness is a deeply personal journey, so your results will depend largely on how open you are when you begin the course, how committed you are to your practice, and your own personal inclinations toward self-love and compassion. There is no magic formula with mindfulness, but studies have shown that within 6-8 weeks mindfulness meditators have shown/felt may differences in their minds, bodies, and lives. By the end of our 6 weeks together, you will have a greater understanding of mindfulness as a practice and your relationship to it and your thoughts.
Will I need to purchase anything else once I buy the course?
No! Although you can get the cushions, the bells, and the lotions that claim to help you practice mindfulness… they aren’t necessary for this course. All you need to bring is an open mind!
How will I receive the course content?
The content will be delivered in 6 modules designed to help you learn more about the theme of that week, which will lead you into the daily mini guided meditation for that week. Each day there will be an opportunity for reflection with designated exploration questions in your workbook.
How long do I have access to the course?

What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the practice of living life on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment and with compassion.
Mindfulness is building the habit of awareness, and committing to a life of focus. It is minimalism of the mind.
If is the process that allowed me to take the pressure off of myself and begin living completely in the now. Which doesn’t mean that I avoid planning or preparing for the future - it simply means that I plan and prepare in a way that fits who I am in this moment. I plan and prepare in a compassionate way that frees up space because I no longer allow worry or stress to validate or control my experiences.
We’ll go into this even more once you join the course!

If you’re ready to discover the power of unconditional self-acceptance and self-love, I can’t wait to see you inside the course!
How do I know if this course is not for me?
If you’re looking to learn from a guru or spiritual leader… if you’re interested in learning “secrets” of mindfulness that no one else knows… this course isn’t for you.
I approach teaching from this perspective: we all bring amazing gifts to the table - both teacher and student. We all have a well of internal knowledge that helps us further understand both new concepts and familiar ideas. Something I say might spark something inside of you that you’ve always felt to be true… and maybe after you take the course, you feel inspired or rejuvenated. THAT process is also a form of learning as much as bringing new information to the table.
I believe that it only takes exposure to a different way of looking at a topic, a unique comparison or explanation to take someone’s understanding of the topic to new heights. So with this course I’m offering what’s worked for me, what I’ve learned through my own research and studies, all in one convenient package and sharing that with you in hopes that you can use the information to your benefit. That’s my goal with this course… to show you that finding peace in the present moment is always available, that practicing mindfulness is always available, you just might need to shift your perspective a little. It isn’t ONLY about sitting still in one place and breathing, it’s about carrying that same still energy with you into every other aspect of your life!
So if you are looking for strict rules and guidelines for your meditation practice, regulations that adhere to the way other people practice mindfulness, this course might not be the one you’re looking for.
This course is all about adapting mindfulness practices to your way of life. Authentic mindfulness - according to who YOU are. You get to build what that means and how you practice. I’m here to help facilitate that process, making sure you don’t give up on yourself along the way.
