One of the reasons why the ancient practice of Vedic meditation still has such a strong foothold in our modern world is because of its many benefits.
Ours is a culture of busy-ness, perfectionism and stress. In our seemingly endless quest for more, our appetites are never sated. There is never enough. There is always more work to be done, more possessions to acquire, more action items to cross from bottomless lists.
Even our vacations from this constant pursuit of more put incredible stresses on our minds, bodies and wallets.
We decorate our homes and upgrade our cars, we follow fashion trends and social media influencers, we have multiple simultaneous conversations over digital media but we struggle to appreciate the real people that are right in front of us.
We plug in our phones, but we don’t recharge ourselves.
(This, by the way, is what I say to those who think "I don't have time to meditate": if you’ve got time to scroll through Instagram or Facebook for twenty minutes, why not spend that time in a totally easy, effortless, and comfortable meditation that will leave you feeling restored? Have you ever felt like you hit the reset button on your day after a marathon of Candy Crush?)
We’re used to being told that good things come to those who wait, no pain no gain, and that results take time. But none of this is true about meditation. Vedic meditation is easy, and when you learn how to meditate properly and with a mantra you can start enjoying the benefits after your very first session with me.
