Group Meditation & Dharma Talk

The Shine Group Med.jpeg

Come sit with us and enjoy a deep, energizing group meditation. Come ask questions about your practice and get answers. Come enjoy a robust discussion on some aspect of life as seen through the lens of timeless Vedic wisdom. And finally, come support each other in the practice of disconnecting from the field of relentless productivity (Go!Go!Go!) and re-engage with the essential field of being. It's a great way to deepen your experience, or to get rebooted if you've fallen off the wagon.

NOTE: This gathering is for current Vedic and transcendental meditators only, but you may bring a curious friend if you wish.

LOCATION NOTE: The entrance to the complex is on Treat Avenue, between 18th and 17th. Come to the main door, dial 206 on the directory and we'll buzz you in. The studio is on the 2nd floor, directly above the main entryway.

IF YOU WANT TO LEARN about the practice you should attend an intro workshop, or watch this intro video. The in-person workshop is more in-depth, and you'll learn some practical tools you can use in everyday life...but the video will give you a good overview of the practice, the course and the program of lifetime follow-up support all students enjoy.

Love and light, James

ntro to Vedic Meditation

What if there was an easier way to meditate?

I used to think meditation was hard. That it took a long time to get good at, and that it was hard to fit into my life. And I was convinced that my mind was too crazy to meditate. What changed for me was discovering a practice called Vedic Meditation, in which we allow the mind to flow. A practice that was meant for people with busy lives and even busier minds. It was easy, effective and accessible. (Really, I promise.) It was easy to do, and so I did it. Learning Vedic Meditation changed my life, and now I get to teach this ancient, powerful technique to people from all walks of life. Perhaps you'll be one of them. 

If you're curious I hope you can join me for an intro workshop in which you can learn about the neuroscience behind what makes this technique work, and why it's such a great stress reliever. You'll also get to meet me and see if you want to sign up for a coming course. 

Hope to see you soon, James

In this intro session you will:

- Have your assumptions about meditation – what it is, what it's really for and how to practice – disrupted.

- Learn about an ancient Vedic approach to meditation that easily and effortlessly allows for deeper experiences, without trying to focus or concentrate to try and clear or control the mind.

- Leave with some practical, accessible meditation tools that allow you to be more present and grounded, even when life gets stressy.

YOGA + MEDITATION "ROUNDING" WORKSHOP

YOGA + MEDITATION "ROUNDING" WORKSHOP

STRETCH YOUR BODY AND EXPAND YOUR MIND with James Brown and Liz Brent

Did you know the practice of yoga was developed to get the mind ready to meditate? That the two work best when they work together? Newbies and experts alike are invited to join us to learn the practice of “Rounding," in which these two practices are combined to maximum effect. Rounding combines a special sequence of very light yoga asanas that was designed to allow the mind to dive deeply, a Vedic breathing technique and meditation. The result will be to enable a profoundly deep and energizing experience that will expand consciousness and allow for what's been described as "industrial strength" stress release. 

Rounding is highly recommended for all Vedic Meditators, but it will work to enhance the effectiveness of all forms of silent meditation. If you don’t yet meditate, you will be instructed in a simple, effortless technique to use during the workshop.

Please bring a yoga mat, water bottle and an open mind.

Namaste, James and Liz

Hacking Flow Consciousness Workshop @ BulletproofLabs

Hacking Flow Consciousness Workshop @ BulletproofLabs

Meet the Hacker: James Brown
Vedic Path Meditation
 at Bulletproof Labs

HACKING FLOW CONSCIOUSNESS

We live in a world that prizes critical, analytical thinking and effort. (We effort the hell out everything.) And yet the best experiences in life, when we’re in the zone, fully in flow of the present moment, are when we’re barely thinking and not trying. But for most people these flow states are rare and fleeting. Why? Because we often find our minds are spinning out of control, a non-stop stream of brain chatter Buddhists call “The Monkey Mind.” Sound familiar? Come join flow hacker and Vedic Meditation master James Brown for a workshop in which you’ll discover the forces that prevent us from being in flow, and learn about a simple mental hack that can transform your experience of meditation and unlock deeper states of consciousness…without trying.

Learning Vedic Meditation changed my life, and now I get to teach this ancient, powerful technique to people from all walks of life. Perhaps you'll be one of them. 

If you're curious I hope you can join me for an intro workshop in which you can learn about the neuroscience behind what makes this technique work, and why it's such a great stress reliever. You'll also get to meet me and see if you want to sign up for a coming course. 

Hope to see you soon, James

In this intro session you will:

- Have your assumptions about meditation – what it is, what it's really for and how to practice – disrupted.

- Learn about an ancient Vedic approach to meditation that easily and effortlessly allows for deeper experiences, without trying to focus or concentrate to try and clear or control the mind.

- Leave with some practical, accessible meditation tools that allow you to be more present and grounded, even when life gets stressy.

SF - Wednesday Night Group Meditation

The Shine Group Med.jpeg

Come sit with us and enjoy a deep, energizing group meditation. Come ask questions about your practice and get answers. Come enjoy a robust discussion on some aspect of life as seen through the lens of timeless Vedic wisdom. And finally, come support each other in the practice of disconnecting from the field of relentless productivity (Go!Go!Go!) and re-engage with the essential field of being. It's a great way to deepen your experience, or to get rebooted if you've fallen off the wagon.

NOTE: This gathering is for current Vedic and transcendental meditators only, but you may bring a curious friend if you wish.

LOCATION NOTE: The entrance to the complex is on Treat Avenue, between 18th and 17th. Come to the main door, dial 206 on the directory and we'll buzz you in. The studio is on the 2nd floor, directly above the main entryway.

IF YOU WANT TO LEARN about the practice you should attend an intro workshop, or watch this intro video - bit.ly/vedicintrovideo. The in-person workshop is more in-depth, and you'll learn some practical tools you can use in everyday life...but the video will give you a good overview of the practice, the course and the program of lifetime follow-up support all students enjoy.

Love and light, James

Intro to Vedic Meditation - Wednesday Morning

What if there was an easier way to meditate?

I used to think meditation was hard. That it took a long time to get good at, and that it was hard to fit into my life. And I was convinced that my mind was too crazy to meditate. What changed for me was discovering a practice called Vedic Meditation, in which we allow the mind to flow. A practice that was meant for people with busy lives and even busier minds. It was easy, effective and accessible. (Really, I promise.) It was easy to do, and so I did it.

Intro to Flow Workshop - The Vedic Approach @ Anchor Meditation

EFFORT IS OVERRATED.

We live in a world that prizes critical, analytical thinking and effort. (We effort the hell out everything.) And yet the best experiences in life, when we’re in the zone, in the flow of the present moment, are when we’re barely thinking and not trying. But for most people these flow states are rare and fleeting. Why? Because we often find our minds are spinning out of control, a non-stop stream of brain chatter Buddhists call “The Monkey Mind.” Sound familiar? Come join Vedic Meditation master James Brown for a workshop in which you’ll discover the forces that prevent us from being present, and learn some simple, practical and effortless meditation techniques that engage your mind’s natural ability to settle on it’s own. (Yes, even your mind.)

In this workshop you will...

- Have your assumptions about meditation – what it is, what it's really for and how to practice – disrupted.

- Learn how to easily meditate in a way that and allows for deeper experiences, without trying to have deeper experiences.

- Leave with some practical, accessible meditation tools that allow you to be more present and grounded, even when life gets stressy.

YOGA + MEDITATION "ROUNDING" WORKSHOP
Feb

1:00 PM13:00

YOGA + MEDITATION "ROUNDING" WORKSHOP

STRETCH YOUR BODY AND EXPAND YOUR MIND with James Brown and Liz Brent

Did you know the practice of yoga was developed to get the mind ready to meditate? That the two work best when they work together? Newbies and experts alike are invited to join us to learn the practice of “Rounding," in which these two practices are combined to maximum effect. Rounding combines a special sequence of very light yoga asanas that was designed to allow the mind to dive deeply, a Vedic breathing technique and meditation. The result will be to enable a profoundly deep and energizing experience that will expand consciousness and allow for what's been described as "industrial strength" stress release. 

Rounding is highly recommended for all Vedic Meditators, but it will work to enhance the effectiveness of all forms of silent meditation. If you don’t yet meditate, you will be instructed in a simple, effortless technique to use during the workshop.

Please bring a yoga mat, water bottle and an open mind.

Namaste, James and Liz
