SF - Free Intro to Vedic Meditation

Sweetgreen Palo Alto 1.jpg

What if there was an easier way to meditate effectively?

Meditation can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be. I promise.

In this intro session you will:

  • 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.

  • Learn what stress really is, how to separate good and bad stress, and why reducing the latter will up-level your experience of life in so many ways.

  • Learn the difference between meditation and mindfulness.

  • Learn about the two reasons your mind is crazy and how meditation can help with both.

  • Learn how meditation affects not just the mind but the body.

  • Get to meet me and see if I’m the kind of teacher you could learn from. Because nobody is everybody’s teacher.

Group Meditation 1.jpg

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.

COST: This event is free for those who have already learned Vedic of FLOW Meditation with James Brown or one of his colleagues. Those who haven’t yet learned can join for a $10 fee, and are encouraged to attend one of our upcoming intro sessions to learn about the practice.

SF - Walking tour + Meditation

walking meditation.jpg

In collaboration with The Battery Adventure Club this unique event uses the cityscape of San Francisco as the setting for exploration of hidden places in the city—and within ourselves.

Starting and ending at the Battery, we'll walk 7-8 miles through San Francisco. Along the way we’ll stop to explore and to sit together and learn the basics of the FLOW approach to meditation. Flow meditation is a radically simple and effortless practice in which we stop struggling to control the mind, opening us up to a deeper experience of our self, so we can live more of our life in a state of “everyday flow.”

Our guides for this special long, slow walk are Battery Creatives in Residence James Brown, founder of Vedic Path Meditation and Bowen Dwelle, an outdoor sports expert, adventure guide, and apprentice writer.

This event is for Battery SF members but there are a few spots open for non-members. The cost is $75. If you wish to join us please fill out the short form below.

For awhile now I've been hearing how people are so busy they're having a hard time coming to one of my in-person intro sessions. And while I have an intro video that does a good job of explaining the practice, it's not as personal as meeting face-to-face and having your questions answered in real time.

So...I hope you can join this online intro session.

You'll learn what Vedic Meditation is, how it's different from other practices like Mindfulness, Buddhism, Guided Meditation and apps. We'll dive into 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. 

To RSVP please fill out the form below and we’ll send you a link so you can join us.

Hope to see you soon, James

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

TO JOIN IN-PERSON: 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.

TO JOIN ONLINE: Please click this link about 5 minutes before the start of the session. We use Zoom’s excellent video-conferencing service for these sessions. If you haven’t already used it you’ll need to first download and install the software. (Don’t worry it’s very simple and easy to use.)

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.

Online Intro to Vedic Meditation

Online Intro to Vedic Meditation

What if there was an easier way
to come to an intro session?

For awhile now I've been hearing how people are so busy they're having a hard time coming to one of my in-person intro sessions. And while I have an intro video that does a good job of explaining the practice, it's not as personal as meeting face-to-face and having your questions answered in real time.

So...I hope you can join this online intro session.

You'll learn what Vedic Meditation is, how it's different from other practices like Mindfulness, Buddhism, Guided Meditation and apps. We'll dive into 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. 

You can join the meeting by clicking this link. If you haven’t used Zoom before you can download the software (super easy to do and use) at zoom.us

Hope to see you soon, James

Meditation for Active Parents with Busy Minds and Full Lives

Ever notice how the people who seem to need meditation the most (busy, stressed-out parents) are the ones who can never find the time to do it? Let's change that.

Please join us for this this practical, informative, and dare we say funny workshop in which you will:

- Learn a simple technique to easily get back in the flow of the present moment, especially when you feel like you're losing your center.

- Learn about a radically different approach to meditation in which you sit comfortably and allow your mind to settle, without concentrating and focusing. (Yes, even your mind.) A practice that was meant for "householders," meaning people who live in the real world, with noise, jobs, relationships and kids. People who don't have all day to meditate. In other words, a practice that's not for monks...it's for you!

- Learn some practical tips and tricks for making meditation a habit you can actually stick with, and the real-life benefits the flow from doing so: better sleep, more energy and clarity, greater intimacy, more joy, and an increased ability to let go of the small stuff and be more present for the people and things that really matter.

ABOUT YOUR TEACHERS

James & Yvette Brown learned to meditate together 11 years ago, about a year after adopting their first son, an event that turned their lives, and their relationship, upside down. The practice was easy to learn and simple to do. So they did it, everyday. And that made all the difference. James now teaches meditation full time, while Yvette is an artist. They have two VERY energetic boys, 6 and 12, a crazy dog and live in The Presidio of San Francisco.
