I wanted to learn more about Vedic meditation so I enrolled in her weekend workshop
Vedic Meditation is a simple and natural technique practiced with the eyes closed for 20min twice daily. The attention dives inward with the effortless use of a personalised mantra (mind vehicle).
Durning the process of meditation the mind naturally de-excites, moving toward more orderly states of awareness. As the mind settles, the body also relaxes, acquiring an incredibly deep state of rest equivalent to several hours of sleep. This rest has some tremendous benefits for the body and brain such as reducing stress hormones like cortisol, decreasing muscle tension, normalising blood pressure and increasing the order and coherence of the brain.
The Intro Talk on Vedic Meditation is OPEN to ANYONE curious or interested in learning more about the practice. It covers details such as how the technique works, the benefits, science and structure of the course. These sessions are approximately 45 – 60min long and are FREE of charge and obligation, FRIENDS and FAMILY are WELCOME!
