Hey, I’m Will and I’m the founding teacher at Will Williams Meditation. I’m here to help each individual achieve balance, overcome any pain and trauma and ultimately enable them to achieve growth and success in all areas of life. Vedic meditation helps relieve issues such as stress, anxiety and depression while improving creativity and productivity, as well as having a host of other benefits.
We teach a particularly profound form of meditation which is easy to do and fast-acting – so essential in our busy, fast-paced, world. It is so important to Jess and I that we pass on what we’ve learned in the most inspiring and empowering way possible, and we go to great lengths to ensure every individual gets all the support they need to really thrive.
When not teaching, I am busy working as Program Director for One Giant Mind, a global charity dedicated to promoting all forms of meditation and researching their effects on individuals and society.
I found meditation 8 years ago after experiencing protracted stress-related insomnia. I randomly met a friend of a friend whose life had been transformed by Vedic meditation. Whilst sceptical, I felt compelled to give it a try and see if it was as good as it was cracked up to be. It had such a positive impact on every aspect of my life that I now dedicate my life to sharing this transformative knowledge with others.
When I started thinking about teaching meditation, I sensed that in order to deliver this knowledge in the most powerful ways, I needed to go to the source. A two and a half year global and spiritual odyssey with Jess ensued, meeting with many great masters from across the continents whilst receiving the highest standard of training from the pre-eminent master of Vedic meditation, my dear friend Maharishi Vyasananda.
I discovered that no matter what the rituals and no matter how interesting, complex or hard core the rites of passage, the greatest and most powerful techniques were the simplest and easiest, available to everyone no matter what their circumstance. It just required the right teaching.
I spent 4 months completing the legendarily intensive Vedic meditation teacher training course. Upon graduation, I met up with Jess once more and we returned to Europe to begin sharing the remarkable fruits of our journey.
Meditation had such a profound impact on my life that within a year or so I felt that I should teach it. At the time I was thinking of becoming a school teacher, as I felt that empowering people with knowledge and skills was the best way to make a difference. However, when I spoke to teachers about it, the apparent bureaucracy suggested it wouldn’t have been a good fit.
The more I practised, the more my consciousness expanded. I became aware of the issues negatively affecting the world, and as I advanced it seemed change was possible. I realised that for me, by far the most meaningful impact I could have on the world would be to help people overcome the stress and strain that is creating the collective ‘me first’ dynamic in the world.
I don’t think any of us question the fact that the world needs to change. It’s simply a question of how. For Jess and I, it is glaringly obvious that it all springs back to consciousness, and so we are dedicating our lives to working in this field. As one of my heroes once said:
“No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
