"Rich was so down to earth,
and not what I was expecting from a
"Meditation Teacher", with a perfect
blend of science and consciousness"
A Journey to Meditation Teacher
First and foremost, I love meditation, science (currently completing a Psychological Science degree), conscious exploration, good health, family, creativity in all its forms, nature, our pets (horses, dog, cat and chickens..), good people and perhaps most of all sharing the ancient techniques of meditation and the science-based practices that compliment it to help us be the better version of ourselves.
Now for the longer version…
I am not one of those fortunate human beings with a super resilient nervous system. For me, I’ve had periods where life was a challenge – a slight understatement – due to stress, chronic fatigue, and depression.
These periods have given me not just a theoretical idea of mental health and wellbeing challenges, but a personal insight to the impacts it has on the ability to live a good life.
I share this up front to let you know that I am a very real, transparent human, that experiences the full tapestry of life and all that it entails. Not a guy pretending to be an “enlightened guru”.
I have however over the years (spending a small fortune along the way chasing magic bullets, which I certainly did not find) through the practices I now am incredibly grateful to teach cultivated a deeper sense:
“Calm in the Chaos”
How I achieved that, was, arriving at a simple resolution. Nature knows best and there is no magic bullet. We just have to work out how to best look after our individual nervous systems, and where required use best practices and practitioners to help us move towards our “highest expression of self”. And then make sure we support ourselves continually along the journey with good health and wellbeing practices.
So over the years I have been on a pursuit to gain a greater understanding of our human nervous systems (hence why I am completing a psychological science degree) and combine this understanding with the amazing science-based ancient practices I share. Practices that are now coming to the forefront of wellbeing, and for so many good reasons.
And after teaching meditation to over 500 people, I have seen first hand the benefits that all experience when we adopt it into our daily life. I also have read countless peer-reviewed science studies on the practice to know, it is not a placebo. It works.
Some things I’ve done along the way searching for deeper calm and happiness!
Fasting in the bush for 4 days with nothing to do but sit in a 3 metre circle, 10 day noble silence meditation retreats, walked on fire with Tony Robbins, all the NLP trainings, Yoga, therapy (science and alternative), breath training, personal and business coaching, Neuro Feedback, seminars upon seminars, online courses, meditation apps you name it, I’ve probably done it or looked into it.
This constant search eventually ended up at Vedic meditation, and oh I am so, so grateful I did. I liken it to the soothing balm to the craziness of life.
Meditation gave me the power to be able to respond to life with creativity rather than react unconsciously to life.
Hence why I knew this was my calling to share this amazing, scientific tool with the modern world.
A tool to navigate this crazy world we live in with all the peaks and valleys and demands. So fast forward to today I would love to share this technique with you.
And If you are wondering, if I am the right meditation teacher for you, I would love for an opportunity to chat with you about this beautiful proven technique, that has helped millions and millions of people around the world to live a greater life.
"Imagine a life with less stress, more love, more peace, more creativity and joy, and loads less reactivity to the inevitable triggers of the modern world. Meditation helps us cultivate that within our own world."
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.
Rich was welcoming, patient, open & honest in his approach & to me shone authenticity. He has been around the block & knows what has worked in his life & many others he has taught. It’s early days for me, but Undeniably I feel more connected & present in my day to day dealings in the ocean or more importantly precious time spent with my daughter.
SO WHAT IS THE MEDITATION SPOT ?
Good question, rather than just have my name as the name of my teaching business, I wanted to come up with a name. And Meditation Spot jumped out at me for a few reasons but mainly….
The forms of meditation I teach requires no set location to meditate so literally any spot you find yourself in you can meditate. Be it in the park, taxi, air plane or on a couch. Any spot you find, can be your mediation spot. Your spot where you can find “calm in the chaos”.
WHOSE MEDITATION FOR ?
