Discover ‘small glimpse’ practices to experience spacious awareness, joy, and freedom — anytime and anywhere.  

Apply Effortless Mindfulness to connect with the larger field of consciousness…

While observing your thoughts or your body’s sensations are common mindfulness practices, they may not be the most effective forms of meditation for YOU...

Yes, through deliberate mindfulness, or thought-focused mindfulness, you can access a certain level of presence and relaxation. However, the emphasis is still on your thoughts — focusing on a specific idea or emptying ALL of your thoughts.

Practicing mindfulness in this way requires unnecessary effort…

Gently noticing that you are aware, embodied, present, and alive moves you beyond thought and into greater awareness... with ease.

Simple, yet powerful mindfulness practices can also awaken you to the compassionate subtle state of awareness from your “heart-mind.”   

This advanced form of practice, Effortless Mindfulness, allows you to access profound joy — and immediately evoke the “flow state,” which is ALWAYS available to you.

Effortless Mindfulness draws on creator Loch Kelly’s studies of the world’s great masters of meditation psychology and neuroscience, which validate effortless mindfulness as a technique for attaining inner peace and non-dual awareness.

You don’t need to spend years meditating to realize the benefits of Effortless Mindfulness…

Loch has transformed the advanced practices of Zen and Tibetan meditation techniques into practical micro-meditations, which can be done with your eyes open — any time of day.  

In just moments, these “small-glimpse” techniques done “off the cushion” can shift your awareness from your egoic mind and a separate sense of self — to awareness of your natural state, which is loving, wise, and present.

Both embodied and transcendent, effortless mindfulness allows you to finally break through the limitations of your thought-based self-identify, perceptions of separation, and often unconscious, negative attachments.

Join Loch Kelly to begin the simple, yet advanced practices of opening to your spacious, loving, and wise heart-mind.  

In this hour-long event with the creator of Effortless Mindfulness, you’ll discover:

  • An advanced, yet simpler form of mindfulness you can do to improve focus, end anxiety, and enjoy peace RIGHT NOW
  • The “small-glimpse” mindfulness practice you can do anytime, anywhere, to relax, feel more connected to yourself — and experience the bliss of simple awareness
  • Micro-meditations that can bring you the same sense of wellbeing or “being in the zone” that you may have experienced while playing a sport or walking in nature
  • Why observing your thoughts may not be the most effective form of meditation for you
  • The difference between what most people understand as mindfulness and Effortless Mindfulness, which connects you with the larger field of consciousness  

Loch teaches that Effortless Mindfulness doesn’t mean that we don’t have to make an initial effort...

Effortless Mindfulness refers to your natural, spontaneous human capacity for “open-hearted awareness.”

During this FREE video event, you’ll discover how Effortless Mindfulness can increase your focus, deepen your loving presence, and put you in a state of flow — at work, at home, in traffic, or anywhere you are during the day.

You’ll also hear about a new 7-week training in Effortless Mindfulness, where you’ll discover key practices to access the spacious awareness, joy, and freedom of your compassionate heart-mind.
