We are not trying to quiet our minds,

we are finding the quiet that is already there.

Vedic Meditation

Vedic meditation is a very simple and effortless mental technique practiced sitting comfortably (in a chair) with the eyes closed. There is no need to concentrate, focus, or clear your mind of thoughts. There is no need for earphones, books or devices.  Once you have learnt the technique, it goes with you everywhere and becomes a life long skill.

The beautiful thing about meditation is that it doesn't matter what issue you're trying to address, meditation will address all of them.  Vedic meditators report the benefits of meditating are tangible and immediate.

The Vedic Technique

To practice Vedic Meditation you will be given a personalised ‘Mantra’ and shown how to use it.  A Mantra is simply a sound, which is silently repeated in the mind.  This sound has a charming quality and the mind is able to settle down in a very natural and spontaneous way.  The mind will move from the active layers of the mind to the more quiet and subtle layers of the mind, until it ‘transcends’ or moves beyond thinking and comes to a complete state of rest.

 

Sound impossible? It's not. Your mind's natural tendency is to want to settle down this way, but it just needs a tool help it get there.

The Tradition

Vedic meditation originates in India and draws from a 5,000 year old body of knowledge known as ‘The Veda’. Modern science is now verifying what the ancient sages of India discovered a very long time ago, that humans need to find a way to de-excite the mind, so the body can rest and restore wellness.
