Why is Vedic Meditation So Great?

Because it’s absolutely effortless, requiring no specific focus or concentration. When you practice Vedic Meditation, your mind settles down automatically, and the body achieves levels of rest exponentially greater than can be achieved in a night’s sleep. The impact of the Vedic Meditation technique is proven and profound. Plus, it’s easy, it’s enjoyable, it can be learned by anyone and practiced self-sufficiently on your own forever.

I have always been a pretty good actress, putting on a good face during adverse situations. While inside, I could feel the anger build. Keeping it all bottled up, it would last for days, spill over into everything, making life stressful. With Vedic meditation, there has been NO churning. I have been much more even and objective, not personalizing during difficult moments

Ben’s deep understanding of this ancient practice and his ability to help his students fit meditation into their busy schedules has been a real asset to me as my practice has evolved. Since I started meditating, I wouldn't say that I've become a different person, just that I am now the best version of myself. I can’t imagine my life without Vedic Meditation and only wish I had found it sooner.

I'm so glad I took Ben's Vedic Meditation course. I'm not really the "spiritual" type, as I like concrete scientific reasoning. I attended the free Intro Talk first to see what Vedic Meditation was all about. It wasn't just the scientific evidence on the benefits of Vedic Meditation, but it was also the way Ben made it so easy to understand with real life examples.

Danielle Bass, New York

Special Education Teacher

I originally sought out Vedic Meditation to help with lower energy levels and reduced concentration from living in the city and like others, not sleeping a ton. Now I find myself feeling much more relaxed, and my body and mind both feel like they’re in a steady state of equilibrium. Meditation has made a profound impact on my relationships, I'm calmer and more patient with friends and strangers.
