Vedic Meditation is an ancient practice. It was developed over 5000 years ago. The word Vedic comes from the Sanskrit word ͚veda͛ which means to know. The veda is an ancient philosophy from which meditation, Ayurveda and yoga comes from.
Most meditation techniques can be categorised as either:
- Contemplative Meditative practices OR
- Concentration Meditative practices
Contemplative practices ask you to contemplate a big idea. In our day to day life we become so much involved in the petty issues of mundane importance, that we forget the larger picture of things. This practice asks us to take a ‘cosmic’ view.
Concentration techniques ask you to concentrate the mind on a subject such as the breath a candle or progressively different parts of the body or to visualise a scene and to exclude all other thoughts. This category includes many of the mindfulness techniques and practices.
These methods facilitate some calming of the mind whilst still requiring the mind to be engaged due to the nature of the technique.
Vedic Meditation is in a unique category all together. Using a specific mantra (a vibrational sound) it allows the mind to transcend (step beyond) the busy active layer of the mind.
In Sanskrit, ͞Man͟ means mind and ͞Tra,͟ means vehicle. A mantra literally translates to ͞mind vehicle,͟ helping to settle both mind and body. In Vedic Meditation we us the Mantra as a conveyance or vehicle to draw the mind inwards to a deep state of rest. As the mind establishes deep states of rest so too does the body. The Mantra you receive is a simple, vibrational sound with no intended meaning. It is selected for you and is provided with precise instruction, to optimise your mediation experience.
Vedic Meditation is made for people with busy minds. You are not required to exclude thoughts in this technique. If you think, you can meditate. And if you have a busy mind – more reason to learn to meditate, to achieve deep rest for the mind and body and gain all the amazing stress release benefits. By the end of the 4 – step program you will be fully self-sufficient. And if you have any questions or concerns afterwards, there is the complimentary alumni program. And I will be here as your ongoing support.
Perfect for people like you and me, (i.e. people with busy minds and hectic lives) this style of meditation readily integrates into your daily life. Both easy to practice and effective (i.e. it works), all you need is a place to sit and twenty minutes to stress proof yourself and achieve more.

Exercise is a fantastic compliment to meditation, but it͛s not the same thing as meditation. Exercise fires up the nervous system increasing endorphins, your feel-good hormones, which is why you feel good immediately after exercising. Meditation also increases endorphins and it delivers deep rest to the mind and body. Meditation is actively reducing stress in the nervous system creating short and long-term benefits.
