Have you noticed that the vibrant, fast-paced lifestyle that draws us to New York City is the same energy that can also feel draining for us, day after day? Even the most enthusiastic New Yorkers can find the busyness of the city overwhelming and overstimulating at times.

The one antidote to all this busyness we feel every day is to acquire more stillness in the mind and body to balance it all out. With Vedic Meditation, you’ll receive a personalized mantra that easily carries you into a silent, quiet state, and naturally brings your body into a deep state of rest. Instead of planning weekend escapes out of the city for reprieve, you’ll have access to your inner silent sanctuary twice each day, and come out refreshed and vibrant for the day ahead.

Learn from one of the world’s preeminent Vedic Meditation teachers in NYC.

You don’t have to be spiritual, sit in pretzel positions, or dedicate hours of your day for Vedic Meditation. It’s easy to fit into a busy schedule and extremely enjoyable to practice. I teach executives and busy professionals how to make meditation work for them. Anyone can practice Vedic Meditation in NYC and stop stress from accumulating each day.

Meet Your Teacher: Susan Chen

I worked on Wall Street as a research analyst and portfolio manager for almost 15 years. I enjoyed my career and was performing at the top of my game… but the years of travel and late nights working led to migraines, insomnia, and anxiety that grew by the day.

I tried everything from long-distance running, mountaineering, scuba diving, and shamanic ceremonies, to silent meditations, yoga retreats, and exotic vacations. They all felt like a nice break from my stressful life, but none had long-lasting events. Whenever I returned home from my adventures, the anxiety and overwhelm crept back in quickly.

Once I found Vedic Meditation and incorporated the practice into my daily routine, balance and peace returned to my life. My anxiety diminished, I began to sleep through the night, and my migraines went by the wayside.


From Wall Street Stress to Finding Inner Bliss

As my energetic and creative spark returned, I was able to feel like my happy and vibrant self. Over the course of the next few years, I had my best years on Wall Street and felt more fulfilled than ever.

In 2017, I decided to take a break from my career and spent the next year exploring the practice that unlocked the stress that I had been carrying around all those years. My studies in India culminated in a 12-week intensive training to teach Vedic Meditation, and I’ve been teaching ever since.

It’s a joy for me to offer my Vedic Meditation course in NYC. I’ve trained even the busiest New Yorkers on how to integrate Vedic Meditation into their day to feel more relaxed, happier, and less stressed in their lives.


What is Vedic Meditation?

It’s a meditation technique that has a 5,000+ year old history

You learn in-person over a four-day course.

The course is 1-1.5 hours a day for four days in a row.

After the course, you’ll have a daily practice of meditating for twenty minutes twice each day (morning and afternoon) to release any stress accumulated over the day.

It’s effortless, simple, and can be done anywhere.
