Already a Vedic Meditator? Here's How MindMojo Can Support You
It’s hard to believe that when I first learnt to meditate over forty-five years ago meditation was very ‘left field’. It was out there with vegetarianism and yoga as something only cranks and weird people did. Without the internet and mobile phones, which came much later, meditators were often practising in isolation with little or no support.
The benefits I immediately felt when I started meditating encouraged me to keep going, and I was fortunate to be in a school where around a third of the students and a handful of staff were meditating. There was collective mutual support which kept us going not only in term time but also in the holidays.
It was when I had been working for an international auction house for a number of years, and travelling a great deal, that I made the most common meditators’ error. My increased energy enabled me to take on more projects and work, which in turn meant that my second meditation of the day began to slip. It wasn’t easy at that time to find support, and I struggled on for a couple of years before getting myself back on track – after I became self-employed.
MindMojo offers all Vedic meditators, whether taught by me or any of the other excellent teachers around, a continuous programme of support.
All new students are encouraged to attend the first five Group Meditation Meetings following their instruction. This gives them support and encouragement in the early days of meditating to ensure that they have their technique in place, and the chance to listen to other meditators share their experiences.
Any other Vedic Meditator, new or ‘seasoned’, is always welcome to come along to these meetings. There’s no need to book for the fortnightly sessions, which can all be found on the MindMojo group meeting calendar. These meetings also have the added feature of a ‘Vedic insight’ based around a topical subject such as nature’s business, stimulation and response, and learning to let go. These short talks, which are part of the Group Meeting, are designed to clarify certain aspects of Vedic Meditation and its benefits, together with what meditators will experience in their evolution of consciousness.
Having struggled with my own meditation practice in the past, I am committed to ensuring that no student of mine ever feels stranded. My door is always open to assist in whatever way I can, whether it’s for a new meditator or someone who has been practicing for a while. If your meditation practice has become erratic, or ground to a complete halt, or you need confirmation, clarification or help with some aspect, I am here to listen and advise.
If you don’t feel that a Group Meeting is an appropriate moment to re-engage, I’m always happy to help you get back on track with a private conversation too – just send me an email.
There are also plenty of other opportunities to re-connect and develop your meditation practice with us. MindMojo hosts Special Knowledge Meetings for all Vedic Meditators which provide an opportunity to explore what the Veda has to say about living our life in alignment with the laws of nature. Advanced Techniques are also available for those meditators who have been practicing regularly for twelve months or more. These are designed to deepen your meditation experience and refine your sense of perception.
Retreats both in the UK and India are also available to all students who wish to deepen their practice. Both locations offer a programme of yoga, along with deep and immersive meditations within a supportive environment to elevate your meditation. The retreat to India allows you to discover more about the land of the Vedas first hand, with an active and exciting exploration of the ancient Vedic culture together with lots of discussion, teaching and meditation.
