We believe that a better world begins with the well-being of each individual.

Our mission is to teach New Yorkers how to optimize their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being through Vedic Meditation.

We offer a personalized, comprehensive learning experience and lasting student support in a diverse, conscious community.

COMMUNITY: We provide an experience of conscious community that fosters personal growth, interpersonal connection, and expansion of knowledge. 

ACCESSIBILITY: We are committed to making meditation available to all who wish to learn. Students experiencing financial hardship may contribute volunteer hours to cover all or part of their course fees.

DIRECT EXPERIENCE: We encourage students to learn and seek truth through direct experience, not by simply believing what they hear.

DIVERSITY: We celebrate all forms of diversity in our students and colleagues.

EVOLUTION: We believe that change is evolutionary and embrace it fully.

LIGHT-HEARTEDNESS: Our approach to meditation is easy and enjoyable, and we know how to have fun.

INTEGRITY: We honor integrity in our teaching practices and our relationships with students and colleagues.

ZEST FOR LIFE: We believe that everyone is meant to enjoy life and help others to do so.


Being happy is of the utmost importance.
