Practicing gratitude is a very simple thing. It doesn't require any special knowledge or ability. That doesn't make it insignificant--quite to the contrary, if the expression is genuine, it is very powerful. It establishes equilibrium.
Gratitude doesn't require a special day, but during the holidays, we're reminded to give thanks for all the good we have in our lives.
The technique of Vedic Meditation completely transformed me. I would never imagine my life without it. There is nothing I can think of that would even come close to replacing what this simple meditation practice has given me--happiness, fulfillment, peace, presence, poise, improved relationships, better sleep, better health, more creativity and increased productivity. That's where the list begins...
This year, I want to say THANK YOU to my teachers who have bestowed the great gift of their knowledge. THANK YOU to my students who have given me the unique honor and privilege of allowing me to serve them. THANK YOU to my family and friends for their unwavering love and support.

Vedic Meditation gives us a way to find balance, inner peace and a profoundly deep level of rest that allows us to enjoy the holiday season and begin the new year grounded, with clarity and grace.
Many of us view the new year as a clean slate, a time to re-prioritize our choices and dedicate ourselves to improving our lives and our relationships with our best intentions at hand.
The challenge is not in the choosing itself--for the most part, we know what we should be doing. Spending time with family and friends, exercising regularly, eating healthy nutritious food, finding time to relax, being patient, kind and compassionate to others. The list goes on. The problem we face is that regardless of our intention, we are destined behave and act according to the baseline level of stress that we've accumulated in our minds and bodies...
