“My wife and I are business owners and parents and we come up against the usual stresses and deadlines that these roles create. Stress and pressure are ever present in our lives but towards the end of 2021 they seemed to become less manageable. We needed to do something to release the pressure valve and are always looking for ways to improve our lives and general outlook. We were interested in meditation but didn’t think we could fit the practice into our daily lives. Sarah did a lot of research and came across the Vedic style of meditation after being mentioned in a podcast. It sounded great so we researched local providers. Rich stood out immediately.
We loved that Rich had lived an interesting and adventurous life and he had come to Vedic mediation after trying numerous other techniques of self improvement, enlightenment if you will. To us, this saved us the need to try other things too.
We felt comfortable with Rich from the first call, his warmth and genuinely engaged style made him so easy to talk to and he took the time to go through the process and answer all our questions.
Rich was incredibly accommodating with our course, booking times and locations that suited us. The course was beautiful, a truly wonderful experience. Rich is such an insightful teacher and provided all the information we needed – the history, the science, the strategy all delivered in accessible and digestible format with real life examples of his own and other pupils to make us feel comfortable and not out of our depth. It was an amazing 4 days and we felt so grateful to have had that experience.
Rich has been available since completing the course to navigate any bumps in the road and provide any clarifications needed. As for the practice, it’s amazing how easily you can find the time if you want to. And we have both wanted to! Even in these early days we feel calmer, more clear minded and a general sense of increased well-being. I’m sure we’ll be joining future group mediations with Rich and are working to find a way to get to one of his retreats. After completing this course, it’s clear everyone would benefit from this practice but certainly those in leadership roles (employees or entrepreneurs) who have responsibility for the lives or livelihoods of others.”
