Learning How To Meditate: Step One – An Introduction to Vedic Meditation

The first step to learning how to meditate is to attend an “Introduction” session. The Introduction session, which is a prerequisite to learning Vedic Meditation, covers things like the range and magnitude of benefits that can be gained by the regular practice of the Vedic Meditation technique.

Learning How To Meditate: Step One - An Introduction to Vedic Meditation

Each session is about 90 minutes and includes:
  • Description – what is Vedic Meditation and how does it compare to other forms of meditation
  • Benefits – improved mental potential, health, social behaviour etc
  • How to start the technique – an outline of the steps of instruction to learn Vedic Meditation

These sessions are free of charge – and commitment to learning. Call me, Warwick Jones on 09 419 5380, to arrange your own confidential session.

In addition to the points above, the presentation also covers:
  • What you can realistically expect to get out of the practice
  • How Vedic Meditation works
  • Where it comes from
  • And how does it differ from other systems of meditation and relaxation

You can only successfully learn Vedic Meditation when YOU want to learn, therefore the decision needs to be yours and yours alone!

At the end of this session, I will ask you to go home and sleep on it – before committing to the next step. This way you know that YOU have made the decision to learn, and not “felt obliged” or been “talked into it”.

I look forward to talking with you about whether or not Vedic Meditation is right for you if you do decide to learn, taking you on this amazing journey of self-discovery.

I enjoy working in a personal and confidential environment, therefore almost all my courses are One-On-One. With the option for friends, family and workplaces to learn in groups.

Things To Consider Before Learning How To Meditate

Here are a few things that you might want to think about
before attending an introductory session:

What Do You Expect To Achieve By Learning To Meditate?

If your goals are more of a short-term desire, such as “I have an important exam in a few months and I need to be able to concentrate more” or “I need to calm down in heated-up situations”, then Vedic Meditation may not be the ‘Quick Fix’ that you are looking for. For example; Mindfulness Meditation may help with concentration and controlled breathing techniques might help to calm you down, in the short term.

Vedic Meditation, on average, can take 9-12 months before the real benefits of regular meditation kick in.  Therefore it is more of a long-term ‘strategy’ to reduce stress, be more resilient, sleep better, grow in self-confidence and self-esteem and experience greater clarity of mind and an ability to concentrate on the task at hand.

I will ask you at the Introduction session what it is that you hope to achieve through meditation, therefore it pays to have thought about this before you attend.

Are You Ready To Commit?

To gain the full benefit of meditating requires two periods of mediation each and every day. Are you ready for this commitment? I mentioned above that on average it can take 9-12 months before the benefits of regular meditation begin to show in your daily life.

Furthermore, it is the regular practice of meditation, twenty minutes twice a day every day, that will bring about the benefits in the shortest possible time. The more often you skip mediation the slower the results. Obviously, there will be the odd occasion whereby you have little choice but to skip a meditation, but with commitment, these occasions will be rare or do not happen very often.

Likewise, it won’t work if you are not able to complete the learning process as instructed. Once you have received your personal instructions, you are required to meditate twice a day for each of the four days of instruction. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon – note, that’s afternoon not evening, so somewhere between 4 and 6:30 is good.

Learning To Meditate Requires A Commitment.
A Commitment To One’s Self!

Do You Have A Spare Hour To Meditate Every Day?

Simply having a desire to learn how to meditate and the commitment to meditate daily is a great start. However, in reality, for many people ‘Life’ is just way too busy and meditating twice a day is simply not a practical option.

So, before learning how to meditate, I suggest you look at ways that you can declutter your life. Uncomplicate it as best you can. Then look at your time management, because if hundreds of thousands of very busy people around the world can meditate every day, so can you!

Do You Have A Private Space To Meditate Each Day?

It is ideal that you have a “Private Space” to meditate each day. Somewhere free from distractions such as people coming and going in the room you meditate. Particularly young children and/or pets that demand your attention.

However, it is important to note that once you have been meditating a week or so you will have had enough experience to meditate anywhere you like. On the bus or train to and from work. In public places, such as airports, parks and public spaces. Look around the next time you are in these places, how many people are sitting with their eyes closed? Are they meditating, resting their eyes, or just being anti-social?

When you are meditating in the company of other people, tell them what you are doing. Tell them that you are meditating and that you require 20 minutes undisturbed, you will find that by and large people will go out of their way to be quiet and not disturb you. We cover this subject in greater detail when you are learning how to meditate.

Are You In A Fit Mental State Of Mind?

By that I mean, are you emotionally upset right now? Are you dealing with the death of a loved one, or recent relationship breakup, or some other emotional and/or stressful event? Vedic Meditation has amazing results when it comes to reducing the effects of grief, daily stress and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is particularly good at increasing one’s self-esteem and self-confidence. All of which are very useful when “Life” gets a bit tough.

However, if this is a fresh experience for you, I suggest that you wait a month or two for the mind to settle to a calmer state. Seek medical intervention and professional help if necessary. This way, when you are learning how to meditate, you will be in a better state of mind to a) learn how to meditate correctly and b) experience the full benefits of meditation.

If your mind is consumed with emotion it will be quite a challenge to learn how to meditate correctly. Rather than your attention being on instructions that you have been given, your mind will be on whatever emotional trauma you are experiencing.

How Much Does It Cost To Learn Vedic Meditation?

This is always an interesting question to answer and one that I like to answer up front and get it out of the way.

However, before I do, let me turn it around and ask you something.  How much do you want to pay for a technique that will change your life for the better in over a hundred different ways?

If you have trouble sleeping, how much would you be prepared to pay to get a good nights sleep?

Is anxiety a constant companion, how much would you be prepared to pay to alleviate that feeling?

Do you have low self-esteem and/or self-confidence…

I could go on but I won’t. The current price for learning Vedic Meditation is $990.00

Why Does It Cost So Much To Learn Vedic Meditation?

Almost everyone will ask “Why does it cost so much”.  Which usually means that the person has no idea at all of the power of this technique and/or they will be comparing it with other meditation techniques that are free.  And it is unfair to compare this technique to other forms of meditation. There really is no comparison.

I won’t get into comparing techniques on this page, other than to repeat, “there really is no comparison” to other forms of meditation. The similarity stops at sitting with eyes closed, what happens next is not comparable with free or cheap meditation techniques.

Teaching meditation is my career. I have a wife and mortgage to take care of. I am not a monk living off donations. Which is what some people think they should pay – a small donation.

Learning how to meditate correctly takes place over a two and a half month time frame. There are at least 9 one-on-one sessions of about two hours each, which is 18 hours that we will spend together. So doing the math that is $55 per hour – including tax.

And that is just the course of instruction. What is not being factored in here is the phone calls and the “Checking” sessions that follow in the first year or two after learning how to meditate. Which are all considered to be part of the course fee.
