Jason Bond

As a professional teacher, my life used to be a whirlwind of stress, frustration, anger, sadness, self-criticism, and shame. Alcohol and escapism weren’t moving me forward so I tried meditation. Slowly but surely, I could transform my mental chaos into calm and clarity that lasted beyond my meditation sessions.

"This is a perfect beginners course for people who think they can't do meditation. Jason is calm and goes smoothly, giving steps that are easy to follow. A good teacher with a wonderful conscience and all the patience in this world! A 5 star course! Loved it!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to sit cross-legged on a mountaintop or something?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.You are welcome to, however, we can get the same benefits from sitting on a chair. Sitting cross-legged is sometimes said to be the ‘right’ way to meditate and while this posture certainly is stable, it helps to remember that many of these traditions come from Asian countries where chairs were not a part of the local culture. As long as your posture is comfortable and stable, there is no need to find a mountaintop.
Can I practice mindfulness and/or meditation if I identify with a specific faith or none at all?
Absolutely. Our health and wellbeing course and workshops are a blend of traditional Buddhist practices and modern science but does not concern faith or beliefs. The only requirement is a willingness to engage with the techniques to improve overall health and wellbeing. You will never be asked to adopt or change any beliefs while participating in our workshops and courses.
When does the course start and finish?
This course starts right when you sign up and is open for as long as the Tall Mountain Mindfulness site is up. You are encouraged to work through the material on your own schedule and at your own pace. It will be here for you.
