Camp Calm is virtual retreat for learning the basics of mindfulness and meditation.

The idea is simple: we spend a bit of time every day practicing mindfulness, both in stillness and in daily activities, such as walking, drying dishes, folding laundry — anything you choose.

These short periods of awareness, practiced consistently, will help you remain more centered as you live and work.

We have an easy approach to learning mindfulness skills: a five-minute lesson, then a short practice. You do these at your own pace, on your own schedule, with help from me and your fellow Campers when you need it.

Once you complete the Camp, you’ll have a modest but consistent daily practice, and the ability to bring mindfulness into any situation.

The Camp is a web-based course, and the different sections of the site represent different areas of the Camp.

When you register, your first step will be to visit the Orientation Lodge. Here you’ll learn the details on how Camp Calm works.

After that you’ll visit the Meditation Hall, where you’ll learn the basics of mindfulness, and the meditation technique we’ll be using in the Camp.

Then, whenever you’re ready, you’ll embark on the Wilderness Trail — the 30 daily lessons at the heart of Camp. Each day we look closer at one aspect of mindfulness practice, and do a short meditation.

One of the most rewarding parts of Camp is discussing our practices with other Campers, which we all do at The Campfire. I answer all questions posted there, or you can email me if it’s private.

Some lessons include guided audio meditations, although we don’t rely too much on them (and there are good reasons for that — too many people never learn to meditate without headphones!)

By the end of Camp, you will have achieved something significant: a modest but consistent daily mindfulness practice that you can build on for life.

Most people do the 30 lessons in 30 days, but you can do them at a slower pace if you like. There are also advanced options for the super-keen. The Camp is designed to meet you where you are.

You can do the Camp from any computer, tablet or smartphone. It is up to you what time of day you do the lessons.

Camp Calm is operated by a single person (my name is David — hi!) and I keep the groups small enough that I can answer everybody’s questions promptly. I’ll do everything I can to help you establish a consistent mindfulness practice, even after Camp is over.

The cost is $97 USD and you will have lifetime access to the course, including all new material added subsequently.

If you have any questions, please send me a message.

Group Start Date (Optional)

Camp Calm can be done at your own pace, but it’s always fun to join a group of others, if it works for your schedule.

The next group start will happen in December 2020. Sign up to be notified when it’s coming up.

I’m David Cain — writer, long-time meditator and regular person. I’m the author of the human-experience blog Raptitude, and the creator of Camp Calm.

Mindfulness practice has changed my life, and I want to help as many people as possible learn mindfulness and incorporate it into their lives.

In my opinion the key to really getting somewhere with mindfulness is daily, self-directed practice—not endless guided meditations—and I designed Camp Calm to help you establish your own.

Even if you aren’t interested in taking Camp Calm, I’m happy to answer any questions you have about mindfulness, meditation or anything related. Email me here.
