They have broken down an art form into specific, do-able steps that I can follow and practice. I particularly like their easy-to-remember “hand” skill map where each finger represents a mediation skill. First, we work with a skill through written exercises so we have some time to think about it. Then, we try out each skill in a mediation triad format, and progress to combining them together into more complex skills. So, from something I find daunting and difficult, Liv and Kay have turned mediation into a fun, fast pace learning experience.
