Testimonial: “I was first introduced to meditation in the 1960s, but until I took Maryland University of Integrative Health’s Professional and Continuing Education (PCE) Meditation for Everyone Masterclass I never knew it could be so easy to meditate. This is a perfect introduction to a variety of forms of meditation taught by a knowledgeable guide with a very pleasant voice. The student can begin meditating immediately during this course and can apply it to professional healthcare or workplace settings. This course, officially Certified by the American Institute of Stress, offers you calm, and as such, it can change your life.” –Dr. Daniel L. Kirsch, President, The American Institute Stress
