Learn to meditate

The Technique

The technique taught at Bondi Meditation Centre is Vedic Meditation. The Vedic Meditation technique originated in India over 5,000 years ago, and comes from the same body of knowledge as yoga. Like yoga, it can be practised by anyone regardless of religion or belief system.

It is incredibly easy to learn and it is extremely effective. Learning to meditate will bring immediate and profound benefits to your life.

To practice Vedic Meditation, you sit comfortably in a chair with your eyes closed and repeat a personalised mantra (sound-vibration) in your mind. The mantra effortlessly leads the mind into quieter, more subtle states. No concentration, force or effort is required. The process is simple and natural.

In meditation the mind comes to experience a pervasive calm which practitioners have described, at its fullest, as bliss. This in turn brings a sense of calmness, clarity, lightness and adaptability to the meditator’s daily life. Life becomes easier, richer and more rewarding.

The Course

The course runs over four consecutive days, for 90 minutes each day. By the end of the course you will be self sufficient in your meditation, and able to meditate successfully anywhere at any time. If this sounds unlikely to you, prepare to be surprised, but rest assured Matt will continue to support you beyond the four day course to ensure that you are confident in your practice.

If group learning isn’t for you, Matt offers private courses. You can learn on your own, as a couple or even as a family. Simple complete this form and we will get back to you shortly.
