๐ŸŽ‰ Congratulations! You are in! ๐ŸŽ‰

You should receive a welcome email with friendly instructions on what happens next in a few moments.
And if you are impatient, here is what you will receive in the email!

Welcome to the School of Obvious Magic โœจ

My name is Sasha Kovaliov, Iโ€™m a meditation and mindfulness teacher. Iโ€™ve been meditating for more than 8 years and Iโ€™m grateful for this opportunity to welcome you to the School of Obvious Magic๐Ÿ’›

Right now there are no open classes in our school, as we are revising the program and recording new meditations and videos. We will be launching very soon, and will send you an email when everything is ready ๐Ÿ“ง

๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž But you can still come to our Free Meditation Tuesdays classes! They start at 6:00PM PST / 9:00PM EST and usually last for about an hour. So if you are on the east coast itโ€™s a great way to relax before you go to bed ๐Ÿ’ค

โ“ What do we do during Meditation Tuesdays classes?

We meditate! And if you have never meditated before โ€“ thatโ€™s wonderful! You actually have an advantage! As Shunryu Suzuki once said: โ€œIn the beginnerโ€™s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expertโ€™s there are fewโ€.

We explore wide range of meditation practices, from basic sitting mindfulness meditation to Qigong, visualization meditations and loving-kindness. What unites all our practices is profound feeling and understanding of kindness and love towards oneself and others.

We talk and share our experience in group discussions during the class as well. Everyone is free to ask questions and share. This is different from most meditation classes, in which you are a silent participant.

This is a live class and we do not usually record our classes so please join us at least 5 minutes before the start. Itโ€™s a great way to get to know the people in the group and catch up with everyone. But if you are late or life gets in the way โ€“ come as you are, our doors are always open ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿ“… Add a calendar event

I usually send an email with the next weekโ€™s topic and class details on the weekend and a reminder on the day of the class. Itโ€™s very easy to miss the class if itโ€™s not on your calendar! With this link you can create a recurring event with just one click.

๐Ÿก Join our Discord group

We have a community group to chat, share our insights and progress and just get to know the members of our community on Discord.

What is Discord?

Discord is an app that is similar to WhatsApp or Facebook groups. Why do we need yet another app then?

There are a couple of reasons:

1. Discord is not owned by any major tech corporation and values your privacy.
2. Itโ€™s free from usual distractions, notifications, friend requests and emails. This way you can actually focus on the conversation and stop mindlessly scrolling through updates.
3. You can watch and listen to the meditations through Discord, no other app required!
4. Itโ€™s available for your phone and computer!

To join the group, just click the button and it will take you through a very quick registration process.

After you join the group, take a few moments to introduce yourself to the community in the #๐ŸŒˆintroduce-yourself channel.

Ooooof, that was a lot! Good job on making it all the way to the end! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Hope to see you at our next Meditation Tuesdays ๐ŸŽˆ class.

Wishing you a wonderful day,

P.S. Didn't receive the welcome email? Just send me a quick note at sasha@obviousmagic.co and we'll sort it out.
