You are here because...
You want to feel like a "whole person" all of the time, not just when you achieve or acquire something.
You feel anxious even when, intellectually, you know that everything is fine.
You feel that you might be blocking yourself from enjoying the kind of success and happiness you know you are capable of.
I felt that way, too, and then I learned
Q. What is Vedic Meditation?
A. Vedic Meditation is a technique designed to give the body an opportunity to heal and repair while achieving a deep state of rest. Meditation is scientifically proven to reduce stress and increase the potential for more clarity, creativity, and calm.
"I would say so far, at least 80% of my fatigue episodes have been either eliminated or greatly decreased since learning Vedic Meditation.
For me, this is literally life-changing; it's as though I've gotten back hours of my life that I'd frequently lose due to being too lethargic to move."
- Jodi, NYC (has an auto immune disease which can cause "extremely debilitating fatigue.")
Q. Where does Vedic Meditation come from?
A. India! This practice has been taught for thousands of years. It has stood the test of time and many thousands of people worldwide have benefitted from this technique. Although it is not religious, there is a spiritual component, which as a teacher, I do not shy away from.
Q. What exactly is the technique and how does one practice it?
A. Vedic Meditation is a silent mental technique performed for twenty minutes twice a day in a comfortable seated position. I will give you a more detailed answer when we meet in person.
"I love how truly effortless Vedic Meditation is. You don't need special equipment, or a change of clothes, and you don't need to be at a specific place at a certain time.
If you can find a place to sit, you can meditate. And, the payoff for such little effort is immense. I feel calm, clear, and refreshed after every practice."
- Jason, Brooklyn
Q. Why do we need to meet in person?
Can you teach me over FaceTime or Skype?
A. In an age where we are increasingly disconnected from our fellow humans, it is all the more important that we meet in person. There may be other prospective students at our initial meeting.
Should you decide that you'd like to learn from me, then we would meet in person again for four consecutive days for about 90 minutes per day. The first day will be one-on-one and the following three days we will meet in a small group of 10 or less.
There are certain things you can learn via technology and I absolutely celebrate the advances we have made as a species!Learning meditation is not one of them. Just like, hopefully, you wouldn't marry someone you've only interacted with over Skype, we want to be sure that we are energetically a match before we begin this journey together.
Q. I'm interested. What do I do now?
A. First, read my about page to get a feel for who I am and where I'm coming from.
Second, if learning a practice that has the potential to spark real personal transformation from an artist who has experienced it first hand is meaningful to you, then we schedule an in person meeting. This meeting is a prerequisite to the four day course.
Third, if after our meeting we feel that this is both the right practice for you and that I am the right teacher, then we schedule the four day course.
