Advanced Knowledge Course
Exploring The Veda
Understand the Vedic worldview and its practical application in everyday life.
Once you have learned Vedic Meditation, you can expand your Vedic knowledge and deepen your practice with our immersive Advanced Knowledge course, Exploring The Veda, designed by our teacher Thom Knoles.
As Vedic Meditators we are so lucky to not only have access to an amazing meditation technique, but also to an entire body of profound wisdom. The only question can be where to find it? If we go to the source material itself – the ancient Vedic texts – we will likely come away none-the-wiser. They are indecipherable to most of us, even in translation. And surprisingly there are very few books at all which explore Vedic Knowledge in a digestible way.
Fortunately for us there is a brilliant course, ‘Exploring the Veda’, specifically designed by our teacher Thom Knoles to extract the most practical and relevant wisdom from the Vedas and present it in a way that is captivating and inspiring.
A note from Matt:
“Exploring the Veda is the singular most powerful course that I have found in 12 years of devoting myself to the search for wisdom.
Because of the unique way it is structured and the practical techniques it offers, you don’t just learn this knowledge, you become it.
‘Transformational’ and ‘Life-changing’ are terms thrown around a lot when people are selling knowledge courses, but I challenge you to find anyone who has completed Exploring the Veda who has not found their experience of life transformed for the better.”
Why should I take this course?
Even diligent meditators can have a tendency to hold onto old habits and old ways of thinking that keep us from enjoying the true peace and happiness which is available to us.
Why? The problem lies with the intellect. We trust our intellect to make decisions that we hope will make us happy. But the fact is that the intellect instead often leads us into suffering with its faulty thinking and unconscious beliefs. The Vedic texts refer to this as ‘Pragya-aparadh’ which translates as ‘the mistaken intellect’.
The way to move through this is to present the intellect with true wisdom based on the real laws of cause and effect. In the end it cannot argue with the superior logic. The intellect capitulates, is corrected and we meet our true potential.
This course is a prerequisite for Vedic Meditation teacher training with Thom Knoles in January 2022 Rishikesh, India. Contact us if you want to know more about becoming a teacher.
