Benefits are felt quickly. Most people feel increased calm and energy in the first few days. The benefits grow in the following weeks, with many meditators reporting better sleep, reduced anxiety, and more ability to focus and get things done.
No, not at all. In fact, sitting comfortably is a key feature of Vedic Meditation.
Yes, you’ll be able to do this. In this meditation, you don’t need to silence your thoughts or stop your mind wandering. It’s effortless – your mantra de-excites your mind naturally.
The great thing about Vedic Meditation is that it’s only 20 minutes, and you can do it anywhere. Many people meditate on the train, in a cab, or between meetings. This meditation helps people to feel sharper and better able to concentrate. So meditators tend to find they can achieve more in less time.
I’ll explain what Vedic Meditation does for the mind and body. I’ll discuss the science of why it works and describe the structure of the course. And you’ll have time to ask questions. You’ll get all the information you need to decide if this meditation is right for you.
The session lasts one hour. You’re welcome to bring a friend, but please let me know in advance as places are limited.
I teach courses at evenings and weekends, so there’s no need to take time off work. You’ll learn to meditate over four days, each session lasting two hours. The course is designed to fit around working life. Private courses are also available.
Vedic Meditation can’t be learnt from a book, website or app. The four-session course is designed to make you a self-sufficient meditator. You’ll start meditating on the first day and finish the course with a life-long technique.
On the first day of the course, you’ll receive your personal mantra. You’re meditating straight away. Over the following sessions, we’ll refine your technique together. And I’ll help you resolve any issues that may come up. You’ll get personal support and expert guidance.
You’re not on your own once you finish the course. I continue to support you at every step. After the course, you’ll join our community of meditators. You’ll get a lifetime pass to our group meditation and knowledge meetings (they’re free of charge for Vedic Meditators and held regularly). These meetings are a great way for us to connect and answer any questions you may have. I’ll also support you on email.
The introductory talk is completely free, and there’s no obligation to sign up to a course at the end of it. The course fee is on a sliding scale starting at £399, with the option to split the cost over several months. The fee covers both your initial course and also your lifetime of ongoing support, including your unlimited pass to group meditation & knowledge meetings. I explain more about this at the introductory talk.
There are no hidden costs involved. It’s a one-time cost for life-long benefits, including group meditation sessions and ongoing support.
I teach in central London, near Oxford Circus or on the edge of Zone 1.
Yes, anyone can follow this simple technique. You simply start thinking a sound, and the rest happens spontaneously. If you can think, you can do this meditation.
No, you’re not asked to give up anything. You don’t have to become vegetarian or ditch your morning espresso to enjoy the benefits of meditation. That said, students often say that this meditation makes it easier to change any habits they’re not happy with, like emotional eating or smoking.
