Vedic meditation is the meditation for busy people, not monks
yet it has been around for thousands of years and endorsed by science.
No sitting uncomfortably or trying to calm or control the mind.
Vedic meditation is not a weekly class or drop-in style of meditation; it is taught so that you become self-sufficient in meditation with ongoing support and access to group meditations and refresher courses. You get the benefits from meditation when you do it daily. Not just once a week. In a nutshell, Vedic meditation is for people who want to live their best lives.
“Rich’s work has changed my life, at the time I was going through a breakup and didn’t know what to do. This was affecting my work and stress levels were really high. This method is easy to use and really effective at clearing my head and getting me back on track.”
“I just did the Vedic Meditation course with Rich from the Meditation Spot and the whole course was delivered in such a no-nonsense, tangible way that I felt was important. Just made it so relevant to today’s day and age and easy to grasp. It was a fun, relaxed and very informative weekend and the technique I have no doubt will be a very beneficial tool for life!”
“Learning this form of meditation has been life changing for me. Vedic Meditation will reduce the stress you experience and in turn help prevent stress related disease and pain syndromes. I suffer from an autoimmune disease that is exacerbated by stress and this has been a game changer for my health.”
“Mostly floating at top of the deep water but must be venturing downwards away from the “chatter” enough during each session because I feel a tangible difference in my contentment. Very calming feeling. Haven’t felt this un-anxious since I cant remember.”
“A big thank you, we all enjoyed it so much and I know that it will be such a blessing to have this form of meditation in our lives. I already feel calm, cool and collected and remembering how important it is to ” Live In The Now!”
“I just did my Vedic Meditation course with Rich on the weekend. The process is as easy as he said and I have been meditating twice a day for the last 3 days and I am already feeling more at peace and grateful.”
“Just want to give a huge thanks for the last week and for the knowledge that you’ve shared with me, such a great teaching and I honestly feel like I’ve been blessed with a great tool to help me through life.”
“Vedic meditation is accessible and achievable for everyone. It’s effortless and effective, with palpable benefits within a couple of days. I love the simplicity of it. It takes all pressure off so that you actually look forward to the next session. A twice-daily ritual that becomes a life-changing practice.”
“I found Rich’s delivery & communication introducing me to Vedic meditation easy to follow & remarkably straight forward. Relieved to learn nothing I needed was outside of me & this form of meditation required zero effort & I wasn’t required to add any MORE into my life.”
Now first up, all meditation is wonderful, but the benefits offered are different and some techniques are far harder than others.
Despite being hundreds of styles (brands) of meditation, there are in fact only 3 in how they work on the nervous system. Concentration forms (Vipassana, Japa), Contemplative forms (mindfulness, guided & visualisation) or self-transcending forms (Transcendental Meditation & Vedic), each work differently when it comes to the mechanics and the impacts to the brain and the body.
Comparing the 3 forms of meditation.
|Concentration||Focusing the mind to a single point, very hard and challenging in the modern world due to the activity of our brain. Activates the left hemisphere of the brain. The hardest technique. We do not offer this form of meditation.|
|Contemplative||Bringing the mind back to the present moment via specific tools (breathe/mantra) or guided meditations. Activates the right hemisphere of the brain, where present moment awareness and the imagination reside. Easier than concentration as is more effortless.|
|Transcendental||This form of meditation activates both hemisphere of the brain, as there is no concentration nor contemplation. And individual receives a phonetic mantra and particular technique. The easiest form of meditation.|
