Who is Begin for?
The beginning meditator or anyone wanting to create a solid foundation for a life-long meditation practice. Begin is also recommended for meditators with prior experience who are looking to revisit the fundamental techniques of mindfulness meditation.
How long are the audio meditations?
Since Begin is designed to guide you in building a daily meditation practice over 1 week, you will begin with 9 minutes of meditation and finish with 20 minutes by the end of the week. After purchase, you will be able to view each daily meditation’s length on the member-secure online platform.
How do I access the series?
This is an online meditation series. All AGM digital products are available through a member-secure online platform which allows for direct online streaming or direct downloading to your devices. All audios will download as MP3 files and course materials will download as PDFs.
How long will I have access?

What is included in Begin?
You will receive 9 audio files - with or without music:
1 series introduction audio
7 daily guided meditations with instructions
1 meditation timer audio
1 PDF digital practice journal
Should I take the course with or without music?
Each series in Home has original meditation music uniquely composed for each daily audio. AGM meditation music is thoughtfully created to best support being in meditation versus having the music take the listener out of their meditation practice. When first starting a meditation practice, learning with music can be very helpful and relaxing. However, having music while meditating is a personal preference entirely, so we also offer the full course without music.
