The form of meditation that Thom Knoles* teaches and taught for over 25 years with the TM organizations as “Transcendental Meditation” has been the subject of hundreds of scientific studies showing a wide range of benefits from regular practice. These studies, which refer to this form of meditation using the name “Transcendental Meditation” or “TM”, support the benefits obtainable from regular practice of Vedic Meditation. These benefits include:
* Thom Knoles trained me to teach meditation as Thom was trained to teach meditation by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
I teach Vedic Meditation in New York City and Los Angeles every month. I teach Vedic Meditation in Austin four times a year.
The short answer is no. Vedic Meditation is only taught in person. In this way, we can ensure the best learning experience for every new meditator. All online training falls short, and I believe everyone deserves the best experience in learning a transformative life skill.
Vedic Meditation is taught over 4 x 90 minute sessions. At the end of the course, you will have the tools you need to practice confidently and successfully on your own.
You do not need any meditating experience to learn Vedic Meditation. We teach you every skill you’ll need to meditate successfully in the 4-Day Learn to Meditation course.
Many people come to me feeling frustrated with “trying” to meditate but not enjoying the practice or not keeping consistent with it.
Frustrations in meditation are usually a result of:
When you come and learn Vedic Meditation with me, you’ll learn a mental technique that was created specifically for householders (busy people with big responsibilities). I’ll provide you with expert instruction on meditating easily and comfortably and working with you to verify your experiences and refine your technique.
At the end of the 4-Days, you’ll have a new appreciation for meditation and enjoy continuing with a daily practice.
The Learn to Meditation Course ranges from 6-12 students per class.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was a revered spiritual teacher from the Shankaracharya lineage of the Vedic tradition.
I teach Vedic Meditation and was trained to teach this form of meditation by my teacher and mentor, Thom Knoles. Thom was trained as a teacher of Transcendental Meditation by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and taught it for over 25 years with organizations affiliated with Maharishi. Since 1997, Thom has continued to teach this meditation as he learned it from Maharishi, and has done so independently and separately from the TM organizations.
Likewise, Thom trained me to teach meditation as Thom was trained to teach meditation by Maharishi. I teach Vedic Meditation independently and separately from TM organizations and am not affiliated with those organizations.
