The Vedic meditation course is taught over four short sessions, over three days. You will be given a personal mantra, knowledge about correct practice and have ample opportunities to discuss your experiences and ask questions. You will graduate with a self-sustaining meditation practice and be equipped to meditate on your own for the rest of your life. You will be supported with personal follow up and have access to the Vedic meditation community around the world. You can also re-sit the course any time free of charge.
SESSION 1 (approx. 45 mins)
This first session is 1:1, with a brief ceremony where you will receive your personalised mantra and the instructions for how to use it properly. You will learn how the mantra can help you effortlessly enter a relaxed state and the importance of keeping your mantra private. You will meditate for the first time, and be able to refine your practice in the subsequent sessions.
SESSION 2 (approx. 90 mins)
This session is focused on the correct use of the mantra. The use of a mantra is the key component to the Vedic meditation technique and understanding how to use it properly for maximum results is why you need a qualified teacher. We dedicate time to ensuring you use the mantra effectively and that you graduate with a self-sufficient practice.
SESSION 3 (approx. 90 mins)
In our busy modern lives we have more to do and less time to do it, resulting in stress being layered into our nervous systems. This session is about understanding thoughts and stress release during meditation. We explore the mind-body connection, how thoughts in Vedic meditation are a signal of stress releasing, and continue to refine your use of the mantra.
SESSION 4 (approx. 90 mins)
The final session covers practical knowledge to establish a regular practice. We focus on how to get the maximum benefits from your practice, and how to enhance your 'eyes open' life. No matter what your circumstances, the biggest concern we hear is students do not have time to fit in two meditations per day, we will workshop how you can fit them in.
