"This course was exactly the kickstart I needed to start my meditation practice."


Ashley is so incredible and she shares so many golden nuggets of information that I really had no idea about until diving into this material. This course is short, sweet, to the point, and full of so much value. The videos are easily digestible, calming, and set the perfect foundation for mindfulness practice. I am now meditating daily and have a new sense of calm and serenity that wasn't there before. Thank-you Mala Collective and Ashley for this beautiful training.

"The Beginner's Mind was the perfect way to reset my mind, and start my meditation journey."


These videos are so stunning! And the training material is even better. Before taking this course I was so intimidated with meditation and really had no idea where to start. The Beginner's Mind was the perfect way to reset my mind, and start my meditation journey. I am so grateful for this experience and for Mala Collective.

"The quality and value of this course speak for itself."


From the high-end videos to the worksheets and PDF's, it's all top-notch. Not to mention the training and knowledge Ashley shares within each video. Super pumped and grateful for this opportunity to learn how to consistently incorporate meditation into my daily life.

"I loved that each video was less than 5 minutes long."


As a beginner, I would've felt overwhelmed if the meditations were lengthy. Loved everything about the course.

"This course provided me with a new depth of learning, in such an accessible and nurturing way."


I’ve been meditating on and off for years and lately had fallen out of my regular practice. This course provided me with a new depth of learning, in such an accessible and nurturing way. Ashley’s gentle and loving approach helped me remove the judgement I was putting on myself for not being a perfect meditator. This course is wonderful if meditation is brand new to you or your looking to deepen your foundation and breathe new life into your existing practice.
