  1. I don’t want to be negative in this of all places, but this bit
    “AUTHOR BIO:

    HOLLY ASHBY IS A WRITER AND ILLUSTRATOR WHO WORKS FOR WILL WILLIAMS MEDITATION IN LONDON.”
    is interesting.

    Will Williams charges money to teach meditation. Wouldn’t it be kind if, like the Buddha – and the Sangha to this day – they did it for nothing?

    1. Hi Sam,

      That’s an interesting, and timely, thought. I’ve recently been asked by a dear friend to attend a mindfulness course spanning 8-weeks. It’s based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s mindfulness teaching which I am already familiar with. To my horror, the course costs almost $370.00

      Now I’m sure the ‘teachers’ of said course would argue the costs are to cover the course materials etc. I’d wager, however, that profit is part of the equation, so to speak. I’d sooner go to my local Buddhist monastery (Chithurst) and take instruction from those that know. For free.

      Hope you are well.

      Best, Mike.
