Frequently Asked Questions.
I’ve never meditated before, CAN I LEARN VEDIC MEDITATION?
Yes. Vedic Meditation is perfect for beginners, and all levels of meditation experience.
What if my mind is VERY busy?
Wonderful. You are the perfect candidate for meditation. There is no need to clear the mind of thoughts. I’ll be teaching you a technique that will help settle the mind and I’ll show you what to do with all those thoughts.
Will I be able to meditate on my own?
Yes. You will be meditating confidently on your own by the end of the course. I promise I won’t let you go until you’ve got it.
Can I contact you after the course?
Yes. You are welcome to contact me anytime about your practice. You may also attend group meditations or do refreshers, free of charge.
How will I find time to meditate?
Firstly, meditation takes away stress and fatigue which eats life up. Secondly, you will become more productive and efficient, you will require less sleep and have more energy to get things done. Thirdly, the benefits of meditation can be addictive and many people look forward to meditating, so you may even find yourself prioritising it over things like………Facebook and instagram!
How is Vedic meditation different from other types of meditation?
Vedic meditation has been around for over 5000 years and pre-dates all other forms of meditation. We use a mantra (a sound) to settle the mind. The mantra is transcendental, meaning it will help the mind to move beyond thinking and settle deeply. There is no need to focus or visualise and it’s effortless, unlike many techniques that require some effort to practice.
Do I have to chant my Mantra?
No. We gently repeat the Mantra (silently) inside the mind. You will receive your own personal Mantra when you learn Vedic meditation.
Do I have to sit cross legged on the floor?
No, we recommend sitting comfortably in a chair.
The course seems EXPENSIVE, why?
Vedic meditation delivers immediate benefits to the mind and body. You will be instructed in person over 3 sessions and equipped with a powerful skill that you can practise every day for the rest of your life. If you were to attend a $10 drop in class every day for a year, it would cost you $3650 per year, so the one off investment of $980 is very reasonable. This includes ongoing support with your practice if you need it. If you have financial concerns I’m more than happy to discuss options with you.
What about meditation Apps?
Apps can be a good entry point into meditation. However meditating with technology has it’s limitations and most people seek a deeper experience eventually. Learning Vedic meditation provides a depth of experience that simply cannot be matched by technology.
Can children learn Vedic meditation too?
Yes, children from 10 years can learn. However if the child is under 15 years at least one parent must already be a vedic meditator. It is important to de-stress the parent first. It also means the parent can enable appropriate support and encouragement for the child.
