Vedic Meditation is a simple mental technique.
Vedic Meditation is easy.
If you can think, you can meditate. There’s no need to sit in a fancy pose or try to “quiet the mind.” Vedic Meditation is designed for active, modern people, and it’s easy to fit into busy schedules. We sit comfortably, close the eyes, and silently use a specific sound (or mantra) to settle into a state of deep rest. Through this process, we awaken the full potential of the mind and restore balance in the body.
Vedic Meditation is restful.
Vedic Meditation allows us to dive deep below the surface of the mind’s activity and access the quiet, unbounded place that lies beyond our day-to-day thoughts and concerns. We release accumulated stress, fatigue, and tension in this state of wakeful rest. After meditating, we feel clear, calm, and ready to tackle life’s demands.
Vedic Meditation is rewarding.
Reducing accumulated stress in the body helps us perform at the top of our game, think more creatively, overcome our fears, and feel happier. With regular practice of Vedic Meditation, people find that their energy levels increase and they can be present and productive with less effort. Work, play, and relationships are infinitely more rewarding as a result.
There is also great reward in the diverse, ever-growing community of Vedic meditators in New York City and beyond. Those who learn Vedic Meditation are welcome to enjoy The Spring's various offerings, the support of its teachers, and the value of its community.

"Letting go of what I can't control."
After learning to meditate, I’m much calmer and more patient. Meditating twice a day has helped me see that the world is bigger and more nuanced. There are things we can control and things we can’t. Regular meditation has allowed me to let go of the latter and concentrate on what I can do to enhance my life rather than continue to sabotage it.

"Permission to stop thinking."
I've always been prone to overthinking. When I took up running years ago, I assumed I'd be using the time to "clear my head." I love running, but it definitely didn't have the calming effect I anticipated. It wasn't until I learned meditation that I gained the ability to quiet my mind. For twenty minutes, twice a day, I give myself permission to stop thinking - and the benefits carry over into the rest of my day.
