No, Vedic meditation is a natural practice which brings great benefit to the mind. The origins of the practice are from India, so there is a small flavour of that in the course but the practice itself has no religious or esoteric aspects. Hence why it is a scientific universal practice that anyone from any religious or non religious belief system can benefit from.
No, with Vedic meditation it is better for you to be able to sit comfortably, if that is cross legged for you that is fine, but most will meditate on a chair. All that is required is that you sit upright with the back supported.
Don’t worry, most of us have the same concerns, and rightly so as we have between 60-80,000 thoughts a day (according to science) and trying to stop those is near impossible and with Vedic meditation, we are not trying to do that. In fact, if you can think effortlessly, you can meditate effortlessly as well.
But so many of us have that same thought, I know I certainly did but it is really a big misconception of meditation (although some forms of meditation are certainly harder than others). But with Vedic meditation you will see just how simple and easy it is for you to sit for 20 minutes. In fact many who have tried before are amazed at the effortlessness of this technique and are shocked that 20 minutes felt like minutes!
No not at all, millions of people who benefit from Vedic meditation were non meditators previously. The simple technique you will learn is easy for anyone no matter what previous experience or lack of they have had.
Any time you sit to give yourself time out is great, and apps are some of the greatest tools to have helped thousands of people discover meditation. But to go deeper into the scientific benefits of meditation it is recommended that you experience a technique like Vedic meditation, through which you can create a strong daily practice. Most app developers are experienced meditators and the goal is to get people to open their minds to the benefits of meditation. Once they experience that they can choose to go to the next stage and learn a technique such as Vedic meditation.
No, once you have learnt the Vedic meditation technique you can meditate on your own. That is the beauty of this practice, you will be a confident meditator.
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….
This technique 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”.
