2 Unexpected Benefits From Practicing Vedic Meditation

Before I became a full time Vedic meditation teacher, I was a theater performer for over 25 years. Frustrated with feeling anxious and a near constant feeling of dread despite having a pretty good life, I decided to learn to meditate.


Yes, it helped with the anxiety.

Yes, that feeling of dread disappeared.


Here are the two unexpected benefits.

  1. Stability

  2. Confidence


Here's my story:


I was the one saying No to myself. Can you relate?


I was afraid the

• casting director

• director

• writer

• producer

were all going to reject me.


So I didn’t submit my headshot/resume, didn’t write to an associate, didn’t take advantage of the connections I had and relationships I’d built.


Sound familiar? Keep reading.


It was all based on fear. Fear of rejection. I told myself NO before they even had a chance.


What changed?


I learned Vedic Meditation, a simple meditation technique that helped me calm down.


Here are a few of the benefits of practicing Vedic Meditation.


  1. I started to feel more stable and with that stability came more confidence.

  2. I started to show up to auditions with a playful attitude—no desperation. I didn’t need the job.

  3. I started saying Yes to myself.


When I started saying Yes, I started getting more high profile jobs, secure income, and went on amazing adventures touring the US, Japan, and China.


I still act now and again but teaching meditation is 10x more rewarding. I love seeing people breakthrough their own self limitations.


If you have a meditation practice, make sure you schedule time to do it every day.

This is me meditating backstage on the National Tour of Hello Dolly. I booked this tour a few weeks after learning to meditate.


Confidence and Stability helped me book more jobs after learning Vedic Meditation.
