What is Vedic meditation?

Vedic meditation is the effortless transcending form of meditation that has been around for over 5,000 years. Science shows Vedic meditation to be the easiest form of meditation due to the nature of the practice which is to work with the nature of the mind, rather than aiming to quiet or control it.

An individual is given a mantra (Bija Mantra with no meaning) and the particular technique that leads the body into a state of rest 2-5 times greater than that of sleep. Thanks to this deep, calm, state of rest we remove the stresses and pressures of life (on a cellular level). In turn, we get access to a host of other benefits.. And this is regardless of what your mind is doing. If you can think you can do Vedic meditation, that is why it is perfect for those with busy minds and lives.

No concentrating, no contemplating and no sitting uncomfortably. Anyone can do this practice.

What is the difference between Vedic meditation and other techniques?

The origins of Vedic meditation are dated to over 5,000 years ago in ancient India by householders, that is people like you and I. Most other meditation have their origins in monastic traditions which are more concerned with aiming to quiet the mind. Most of us know that is challenging.

The Vedic technique is neither concentrating, nor contemplating technique (the only other 2 forms of meditation despite hundreds of brand names for them). Vedic meditation is what is know as a effortless trascending technique.  It is so easy, and many people who have failed at many other practices or those with busy minds have found it to be so easy to adapt into their lives due to how they feel, and how easy it is.

Why Meditate?

In the modern world, stress, anxiety and depression is at an all time high. Despite living in a world with greater access to health and wellbeing resources.

One major reason for this is our nervous systems are under constant duress. And this comes at a frightening cost to our long term health. As stress, anxiety and depression increase risks of:

  • Health issues
  • Neurological issues
  • Degenerative disorder such as alzheimer’s
  • Relationship challenges
  • And more

Basically stress can really suck the life out of us, and meditation is a proven practice to help alleviate the stressors and pressures of the modern world.

How does the Course work?

You can learn this technique in a private course format (at your home, office or at Rich’s property in Currumbin Valley) or in a group course either in Brisbane or Currumbin Valley.

The group course is taught over 4 sessions (between 60-90 minutes each), private courses have the option of either 3 sessions or 4 (as many of the people Rich teaches are incredibly busy so he offers flexibility there), and they have to be taught over sequential days.

Session 1

In this first session you will receive your personalised mantra and the procedure on how to use it properly. Prior to this Rich will perform a short ceremony of gratitude (called a Puja), this is like a martial arts teacher bowing before walking into a martial arts studio, but with the colours of India.

For Rich he likens this to an expression of gratitude. And he has taught this to scientists to seekers, CEO’s to athletes and all in between.

Session 2-4

These sessions aid you to 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.

Rich also shares 2 other science-based tools during these sessions to aid in stress reduction while not meditating, and how to actually shift our brain waves to be more of the person we wish to be, rather than continually stuck in old patterns.

Group Course Investment Includes

When you attend one of our courses you get support for life with your meditation practice. Including:

  • Lifetime support with your meditation practice, you can schedule calls with Rich and help you with any challenges you have with your meditations.
  • A one on one follow up check-in session
