Vedic Meditation is an effortless, natural, and powerful style of meditation. It is a silent eyes-closed technique practiced for 20 minutes twice a day in a comfortable seated position. Each student is given a personal mantra and taught the art of transcendence. Your body receives profound levels of rest in this hyper metabolic state which allows the body to heal and un wind stresses in the nervous system. Less stress equals more happiness and equanimity.
What is Vedic? It comes from the 5,000 year old body of knowledge from India known as the Veda – comprised of the universal laws of nature and human consciousness. This a non-religious practice that is applicable to all regardless of faith or philosophy.
Meditation can decrease depression, anxiety, and insomnia. It also slows signs of aging, increases creativity, and intelligence.
This technique can result in greater tolerance, sociability, marital satisfaction, and improved emotional maturity. Increase self-confidence, productivity, time-management, and have a more positive perception of self and others.
Possible side effects: Happiness for no damn reason.
Come to one of my intro talks and learn everything you need to know to get started and ask any questions your heart desires.
Vedic Meditation is always taught over a span of four consecutive days. On the first day, you will receive your personalized mantra and then the instruction how to use it properly. You will be meditating your first day.
The remaining 3 days of the course are broken up into 90-minute sessions. Each day we will validate and verify your experiences and meditate together. You will learn new knowledge everyday about the mind and body. By the end of the course you will be a self sufficient meditator with a lifetime of support.
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.”
Personal evolution is a powerful thing, and I’m a testament to that. In 2006, I taught myself how to surf. I became someone who was in immersed in the natural world and its rhythms on a daily basis. Surfing changed my life for the better in ways I still can’t describe. In 2008, I discovered Vedic Meditation, a discipline both accessible and quietly transformational. I dove into the pursuit of Vedic knowledge headfirst—as if it was one of the oceans I know so well. I studied with every Vedic master I could find, both in Los Angeles and India.
Once in India, I spent many months training at one of the most well-known mother temples Sri Narayani Peedam. This was after having spent years independently studying the goddess traditions. My trips to India, trips when I often traveled alone without the benefit of a guide or translator, immersed me in the culture of the country. I discovered a kinship and love for its ancient traditions of medicine, learning diet and lifestyle techniques that nourished me as an athlete while providing the balance and happiness I needed to evolve.
Surfing and meditation changed my life profoundly, and they are the two most important components in my happiness formula.
I currently teach meditation and the art of Vedic living in Los Angeles, Detroit and Puerto Rico (where I currently live). I also host retreats all over the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
I know this technique changes lives, and I’m passionate about sharing it with others.
