How the program works

This program is delivered through daily emails


    • You will receive one email a day for the first week, guiding you through a gentle process to prepare for the journey ahead so you get the most out of this program
    • In week two we will pack your travel bag with daily emails delivering: (1) helpful information about trauma and methods for recovery, (2) two guided audios for healing trauma experience, and (3) energy psychology exercises to help you shift energy blocks in your heart and body
    • In week three you will kick start your meditation receiving one email lesson a day, guiding you through seven steps for creating a personal healing meditation practice. Each daily lesson will include a short audio and a supplementary resource (either a reading or a link to a video of a meditation master)
    • After the Kick Start program, I lead you in a 21-day healing meditation challenge to establish a new meditation habit with daily inspiring emails delivered with love to your inbox. The challenge is to meditate for 10 minutes a day for 21 days. Research shows it takes 21 days to establish a new habit, so this component is important for establishing a solid daily meditation routine!
    • For the final three weeks of the program you will transform your habit into mastery of your personal healing meditation practice. You will explore how to deepen and extend your practice, guided and inspired by quotes from historical enlightened women meditation masters

Beyond my formal credentials, I am a trauma survivor who has engaged deep personal healing for the past 18 years. I have integrated wisdom about the process of healing, and I  offer that through my service. I walk my talk. Most recently, I was an important catalyst in revealing widespread sexualized violence in the Shambhala Buddhist community, including formally documented allegations of sexual assault by the community's guru. Media coverage of my work in this area is easily accessible through a google search on "Andrea Winn Shambhala abuse." It is an honour to provide spaces for people to connect with their own sense of grounded spiritual integrity, to heal and truly be all they can be.

Testimonials About the Original

Easy 7-Day Kick Start Your Meditation Program

Mette Keating, Principal & Creative Director, Mette Designs Inc. Mette Keating, Principal & Creative Director, Mette Designs Inc., Toronto, ON Canada

My hope going into the Kick Start program was to come closer to living my potential in my work and personal life journeys. Through taking this program, I learned there is an enormous deeper part of myself yet to be discovered. I have learned a sense of surrendering, not completely but started. It was a good experience and I feel I have started something special… Looking forward to the continued journey!

Emma-Kate Millar, Owner of Body Mason Pilates Studio Emma-Kate Millar, Owner of Body Mason Pilates Studio, Toronto, ON Canada

I took the Kick Start program hoping to reduce my level of stress or anxiety. I hoped to learn some skills to develop my meditation practise and improve my ability to focus. Through doing the program I learned how much my focus has suffered since I opened my business. Social media also has had a major effect on my ability for quiet reflection and focus. The most important thing I’ve learned is that I need to make myself more of a priority and that taking time to meditate is not wasteful. I also need a lot of practise! 

Amy S. D'Aprix, MSW, PhD Co-Founder Essential Conversations Project Amy S. D'Aprix, MSW, PhD Co-Founder Essential Conversations Project, Toronto, ON Canada

I LOVED the experience and it helped me jumpstart back into meditation. I am back to doing my former meditation routine, thanks to you. And the timing of your meditation couldn't have been better. I ended up having a crazy stressful December that included a partial audit from CRA, the uncertainty of a contract with a key client (all good now), and an inordinate amount of travel...the meditation helped keep me grounded. Thank you! 

Dr. Derek Cain, Owner of Integrate Chiropractic Dr. Derek Cain, Owner of Integrate Chiropractic, Toronto, ON Canada

I'm really appreciating the easy steps and gradual build of the program. I think in the past I felt like I had to do it all at once. The structure and consideration put into this program is really amazing Andrea, I really want to thank you!  

Jill Moriarty Jill Moriarty, Toronto, ON Canada

I'm meditating every day and it's actually working much better than it ever has before - I suspect a combination of your good preparation guidance and my being in a space that's really ready to work in this way. I especially LOVE the meditation altar.  To me, bringing out my alter really sets the space - both internally and externally.  Thank you for that. 

Jay Miller, President of Jay Miller Voice and Speech Jay Miller, President of Jay Miller Voice and Speech, Toronto, ON Canada

You thought of everything, Andrea, the supplemental videos, articles, the ready-made meditation log. Your support for my journey is so tangible. Thank you for making meditation so manageable and accessible.
