Have you been seeing all the scientific research on the benefits of daily meditation? Have you been dabbling with apps and guided meditations, but have the feeling you could be going deeper? Have you been trying to make meditation a habit, but found nothing really sticks?

This workshop will introduce you to the radical practice of allowing yourself to meditate, of allowing your mind to flow with the present, without concentrating or focusing, without having to flip open an app, or put on headphones, or be guided by someone else's voice.

You'll discover where Vedic Meditation comes from, why it's easier to learn and different than Buddhism, Mindfulness and other practices you may have heard of our tried, and you'll learn what make it such a powerful stress-relieving tool.

You’ll also find out why meditators report a huge reduction in insomnia, anxiety, depression, and migraines. They also report enjoying their lives a lot more.

We won't be doing any yoga or chanting so you don't need to wear anything special. This is simply a chance for you to learn how this style of meditation affects the brain and body and see if it’s a good fit for you. You'll also get to meet me and see if I'm the kind of teacher you could learn from...because no one is everyone's teacher.

Peace and blessings, James
