Access Mediation consists of two powerful tools that can be used together or separately. We take both a “bottoms up” approach (body influencing the mind) through the breath and a “top down” approach (mind influencing the body) through meditation. The first tool is a version of a classical yogic breathing technique that is taught and performed in a specific way to drive the parasympathetic nervous system to automatically reduce heart rate and induce relaxation. We call this tool Access Calm. The second tool is a form mantra meditation the meditator sits comfortably with their back supported and eyes closed and silently experiences a particular sound, a mantra, that settles mind and puts the body into a deep state of rest spontaneously without any effort, focus, or concentration. We call this tool Access Stillness.
Absolutely anyone can learn Access Meditation with correct instruction, even those who think their minds are too busy/active to meditate or have struggled with other forms of meditation in the past. This is the best daily practice to have to reduce stress and improve health and well-being. It allows you to feel more calm and relaxed, rested and energized, present, attentive and creative every day.

Breathwork corrects dysfunctional breathing mechanics and patterns that would otherwise have a profound negative effect on our health and make us feel stressed. Breath is essential to life and correct breathing is essential for optimal health and wellbeing. Breathwork also removes emotional blocks, fear and limiting beliefs by gently facilitating emotional release. These powerful guided sessions can change you default emotional settings, relieve depression and anxiety, aid recovery from addiction, reconnect you to your intuition, help you access greater creativity and open your heart to greater gratitude and self-love.
Vedic Meditation comes from a 5,000 year old body of wisdom called the Veda, which means knowledge. The Veda is also the source of Ayurvedic medicine, yoga, and Indian philosophy.
Vedic Meditation is not a monastic practice. Meaning, it wasn’t designed for people whose spiritual path involves detaching from society. This technique was developed for “householders”—people who are fully engaged in life. Multi-tasking people with active minds who lead busy lives with jobs, relationships, and families. The technique is universal in its nature, practiced by and benefiting people all over the world, regardless of their society, profession, age, religion, or belief system.
