In the modern world, we are processing the equivalent information in 1 day that our ancestors 250 years ago did in a whole year.
It is no wonder a lot of us are experiencing overwhelm and stress. Meditation is shown to help slow down the mind and therefore the body.
Vedic Meditation takes us beneath the surface of the mind and into the deeper layers of calm and quiet
With VM we are neither concentrating nor contemplating. We use a Mantra (translation is Mannas - Mind, Tra - Vehicle so it is a vehicle of the mind).
The mantras we use in Vedic Meditation are known as Bija Mantras (seed mantras) which have no meaning. As if the mantras meant something we would be using the right side of the brain by contemplating.
We are not concentrating on the mantra either as then we would be concentrating.
Our meditation teacher Tweed Heads will make you learn a particular technique that is scientifically shown to activate both hemispheres of the brain.
Vedic Meditation is also shown to reduce our metabolic rate (your functioning energy rate) by 24% during meditation compared to just dropping by 8% during sleep. So we are getting 2-5 times greater rest than sleep.
Thanks to this deep, calm, state of rest we remove the stresses and pressures of life. In turn, we get access to a host of other benefits.
Vedic Meditation was cognized in ancient India over 5,000 years ago.
It is a practice that is not religious or a philosophy. It is a tool to live a happier, calmer life with no need to change any belief systems or dietary requirements.
How to learn
In order to learn the Vedic meditation technique, we suggest you become orientated with the practice. For convenience (as we know the time restraints we all have) there are a few ways you can do this:
1: Review the website
2: Have a free info talk via phone where we discuss the technique and see if it fits what you are looking for. You can call 0405 240 688 or send an email to arrange a time on our contact us page
3: Attend a complimentary information night (dates listed below)
NOTE: If you have attended a talk or already know you want to learn Vedic Meditation and want to get started you can schedule in a course on a date and time that works for you or attend a group course.
You can learn this technique in a private course format (at your home or one of our 3 locations) or in a group course
The technique is taught over 4 sessions (between 60-90 minutes each).
Is a 1-1 course where Rich will perform a short ceremony (called a Puja), this is like bowing when you walk into a martial arts studio. After this, you will receive your personalised mantra and the procedure on how to use it properly.
Are group sessions whereby we further refine the practice. You will walk away with a comprehensive understanding of how to be a self-sufficient meditator thanks to knowing what is going on within your body and your mind during the practice, and all the possible scenarios you may encounter.
These are fun, dynamic and informative sessions where we also complete each session with a group meditation.
Access to regular follow-up meetings
A private follow up check-in session (either in person or via online meeting)
Access to take a refresher course in the future at no cost.
My support as a teacher dedicated to ensuring you’re getting the full benefit out of the practice.
Access to meetings and group meditations (with myself and other Vedic meditation teachers)
Unlike most classes and apps, Vedic Meditation is taught so that you develop a self-sufficient practice (a life-enhancing tool ). So this is not a weekly class.
Upon learning the technique you will be 100% confident in your ability to access the meditative state.
You also get lifetime access to free Vedic Meditation group meditations. (with any teacher of Vedic Meditation) and you also get ongoing support from Rich Muir as your teacher.
