Ready to learn?
Vedic Meditation courses run for four consecutive days, 90 minutes per day.
Why? Our aim is to make you a self-sufficient meditator. That means you can take your practice anywhere without needing apps, recordings, or a drop-in studio to meditate.
All four sessions are mandatory because each day's curriculum builds on the previous day. Session One is taught one-on-one whenever possible, and the following three sessions are taught in small groups.
During the course, we teach you:
The mechanics of the technique so you can practice on your own
What happens in the mind and body during meditation to release stress
How to fit meditation into busy schedules
Your technique is checked and refined each day, and we ensure that you fully understand your experiences. After completing the course, you'll have enough practical experience and theoretical understanding to be a self-sufficient meditator.
After the course, you'll be ready to continue a successful daily practice and enjoy unlimited follow-up and group meditations around the world.
Scheduling: New courses begin every Monday and Friday, with the exception of some holidays. Course sessions are generally held at 6:30pm on weekdays and 10:30am on weekends. Some teachers also offer mid-morning weekday sessions, which are indicated on our calendar.
Session One of the course is taught one-on-one whenever possible, so you will likely schedule an individual 60-minute time slot with your teacher. Some teachers offer group sessions on the first day to accommodate busy schedules, while others always teach private sessions on the first day. The following three sessions are always taught in small groups.

"A calmness I never had before."
"As a new Vedic meditator, I'm already experiencing the advantages. It has enabled me to face challenging situations with a calmness I never had before. I'm more accepting of myself and therefore of others. I know that everyone can benefit from this practice."
— Fran, Manhattan
"A different perspective."
I came to Vedic Meditation while struggling with depression. Since I started this practice, my depression is gone. Even though everything around me is the same, I am now able to see things from a different perspective.

"A mind that doesn't race."
Thanks to daily meditation, I now sleep soundly through the night. My focus is sharper, and my mind doesn't race with a jumble of thoughts. Most importantly, a sense of calm stays with me no matter what happens during my day.
