Growing the Good
Monthly Meditation Program for a More Mindful Life

Life is busier than ever these days, and while the science shows that meditation can change your brain for the better, it can be challenging to fit regular practice into your daily routine.

Fill yourself up with the good stuff each month – like calm, confidence, motivation, and gratitude – that will help you tackle whatever life throws at you.


Join Rick every month for a special, hour-long live session, where he will guide you through a meditation about one of the 12 Strengths for lasting well-being, and tell you how to apply it to your daily life.

Each session includes a Q&A where Rick answers YOUR questions!

2 monthly meditation downloads to keep practicing between sessions


A monthly checklist to track your personal practice


Inspirational quotes and wallpapers for your desktop and mobile device

How is this different than the Foundations of Well-Being, or Rick's other courses?
The Growing the Good meditation course is an experiential expansion on Rick’s existing offerings, ideas, and methods… and it is also a great introduction for those who are new to Rick’s work.
We received a lot of feedback from people in Rick’s online courses is that while they enjoy all of the information and find the content and practices beneficial, they have trouble outside the course, practicing consistently, maintaining sustained motivation, and applying these ideas and methods to their daily lives – all of which helps hardwire the good stuff into your brain.
Our hope is that this program – with the monthly live sessions, tips for applying the meditations to your daily life, and regular encouragement – will give people the structure they need to fit regular practice into their busy lives.
If you are currently in or have taken any of Rick’s other courses – such as the Foundations of Well-Being or Positive Neuroplasticity Training , this material may feel familiar to you – which is our intention. If you are looking for a good way to keep up your practice, fit these ideas in to your daily life, and keep connected with Rick’s work and others that are using his methods, then we really encourage you to try it out! And if you find that it’s not useful, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund.
