How Do I Learn?
1. Attend an Intro Talk
This is a complimentary, 1-hour talk where you can learn more about Vedic meditation, how this style differs from other styles, and what some of the research and benefits are. It’s also a chance to meet me, answer any questions you may have, and sign up for the 4-day course that follows - no obligation to enroll. There’s no meditation experience required to attend. It’s simply a fun and informal way to dive deeper into what this practice can do for you.
2. Enroll in Vedic Meditation Course
Here’s how it works…
- The course is 4 consecutive days (approx. 2 hours each day).
- You'll receive your personal mantra, as well as tools and thorough instructions for correct practice on the first day. Once you receive the basic operating procedures, you are self-sufficient to begin meditating at home.
- Over the three follow up days, you'll have deeper understanding of how this practice works - the mechanics of meditation and the correlation between mind and body during practice.
- You'll also receive integration tools and ideas so you know exactly how to cultivate and incorporate your own daily practice into your busy schedule.
Although the practice is simple, it’s powerful and designed to deliver some results quickly and efficiently.
Since the class is built on incremental information each day, all students are required to attend all 4 days. If you cannot attend all days, please let me know and we can discuss alternatives.
3. Get Follow-up and Support
Your one-time payment for the course guarantees you a lifetime of follow-up and support.
Upon completion of the course, you’ll have unlimited email access to me to answer any questions that may come up with your practice.
Enjoy free group meditations with a worldwide network of teachers and sit in on any future meditation courses as a refresher.
I’ll also be connecting you to a private meditation Facebook group to network with other students who have learned with me and will be available for office hours or in-person support - at no extra charge.
Alchemy Collective offers a sliding scale for course fee.
At the start of each course, each student is asked to make an equitable exchange based on this scale. This is a practice dating back thousands of years from India (Guru Dakshina) as an effort to maintain the purity and consistency of the teaching tradition. This also acts as a commitment on behalf of the student to set up a meaningful balance of exchange for learning; course fee/personal commitment is in exchange for value of teaching and lifetime of follow-up and support on teacher’s part.
Course payment options and plans are presented at the free intro talk, which is dependent on stage of life, age, and employment. My goal is to make this financially accessible for anyone who wants to learn this practice.
There are a limited number of scholarships per year based on application, circumstance, as well as worthy inquiry. This program is for those facing severe financial strain (disabled, chronic disease, natural disaster, domestic abuse) and not necessarily for artists who are experiencing gaps in employment. Although all are welcome to apply, allocation is based on need. If you feel you do not meet these qualifications but are experiencing financial strain and want to learn, please feel free to contact and discuss alternate options.
Children ages 4-10 may learn for free, with the accompaniment of a parent who’s been practicing for at least a year. Individuals directly affected by suicide (partners, spouses, or family members) and veterans may learn for free, as well.
Private courses are available for individuals or groups or families.
They can be set up at your convenience and will take place over 4 days (2-hour sessions each). The cost includes a lifetime of follow-up and support, as well as access to all refresher sessions.
Expenses for travel outside of the city not included. Contact me for more details.
