Meditation Vacation

with Dave Romanelli

Take a 7-day Meditation Vacation and learn a simple daily meditation practice that will make you feel more relaxed, positive, and present every moment of every day.

About the course

Dave and Happier joined forces to create this 7-day guided journey that will teach you to soothe your mind, embrace or enhance a meditation practice, and have a BLAST in the process.

The beauty of a “guided meditation” is it fits perfectly into your schedule. Simply press play, listen, and relax. You don’t need to go to meditation class or have a meditation teacher in your presence. Whenever you can find 5 minutes in your day you can have an awesome meditation practice!

Why take this course?

Feel less stress and anxiety

Research shows that taking time to sit and breathe lowers stress, helps reduce insomnia, and improves overall health.

Sleep better

Meditation slows down your heart rate and breathing and improves blood flow, all of which helps you sleep longer and better.

Focus better and get more done

Meditation helps you focus better by training your brain to become better at filtering out any unnecessary information.

Why we created this course

“I kept hearing about benefits of meditation and how it can help us feel more positive and less stressed out, but I just never thought I could find enough time or sit still for long enough.. When I met Dave and heard about his philosophy, we decided to develop meditation course for Happier that would be fun, simple, and can fit into anyones busy schedule. Taking a Meditation Vacation taught me new ways to focus and breathe and has absolutely inspired me to make a few minutes of meditation part of my daily (still busy but happier:) life.”

How does the course work?

Over the next 7 days, you’ll learn how to meditate in a way that is relaxing, easy, and super fun! Here’s how it will work:

Daily reminders.

We’ll send you a push notification every morning to let you know that your guided meditation is ready. (We’ve found it’s easier to build a habit if we remind you.)

Daily guided audio meditation.

Dave will guide you through a short, sweet 5-10 minute meditation set to soothing musicscapes. These are not stereotypical meditations taught by monks in loincloths eating seeds on faraway mountaintops. And hey, there’s nothing wrong with faraway mountaintops. But most of us don’t have time to go faraway, so we are taking a more fun approach to meditation.

Inspiring videos.

Maybe you can’t come visit Dave’s yoga studio but our short, original videos will help you feel like he is right there with you, offering advice, inspiration, and tons of ideas for how you can make a few minutes of meditation a part of your daily life.

7 days of original content.

Daily tips, advice, quotes, and stories that will keep you mindful and motivated to make meditation part of your everyday life even after your Meditation Vacation is over.
