What type of meditation do you teach?
Vedic Meditation. An easy to do, mental process/technique that utilises a mantra to naturally enable the mind to go beyond the level of thought and access an inner quiet that results in a deep state of rest. This deep state of rest is designed to reduce stress, increase consciousness & improve your capability to meet the demands of daily life. It establishes a deeper connection to your true self, and to nature. It is simple, natural and effortless. This technique is practiced sitting comfortably, with eyes closed, twice daily for 20 minutes.
Why do I need a teacher?
Nothing can replace the hands-on experience of learning in person from a qualified teacher. The teaching is far more personal, detailed and impactful in making meditation a daily habit. A teacher brings experience and guidance to ensure the technique is done correctly and will answer all of your questions. A teacher offers support for your ongoing practice, personal growth and transformation.
How do I know if I am ready to start meditating?
When there is inquiry & desire to change ; a sincere wish for personal growth & evolution. An honest interest to learn to meditate that comes from an inner curiosity & a willingness to practice is a sign. If you look at what is possible with meditation and become curious to take a course, you are ready.
What is holding me back from learning to meditate?
Generally speaking - Fear of the unknown. What generally prevents a person from learning to meditate is the fear of change. It seems safer to keep doing what you are doing, even if it is not working. Paradoxically, what generally leads a person to meditation is a deep desire to change. Once you understand meditation personally and know how it will be of benefit, you realise that meditation is a normal natural state and the change that results is welcome.
What is a mantra?
A mantra is a sound / vibration that is designed to take you to a quieter state of being. The process of resting your awareness on a mantra, allowing your mind to wander and then effortlessly returning awareness to the mantra creates the conditions for deep rest.
What if I have never meditated?
This is perfectly fine. The courses are open to all levels and require no experience. The best place to start is where you are at. Practising meditation is simple & natural, anyone can do it.
What if I already meditate?

Is meditation difficult?
Learning and practising meditation is a process that requires a change of habits & the willingness to prioritise self. The benefits are gained through action - The regular & repetitive practice of doing nothing - Of simply Being. The practice is easy, the challenge is perceiving it that way. The only effort it takes is sitting in the chair to meditate. The more you give (to meditation) the more (benefits) you receive.
Will meditation change me?
Meditation enhances your personal growth and evolution. Increased awareness, improved health, better sleep, greater physical & mental performance are all change for the better.
