"I loved loved loved Will’s beginners meditation course. I came away super motivated to practice twice a day every day without fail, and so far its worked brilliantly 🙂 I had been practicing mantra meditation for about a year using a brain entrainment programme called Lifeflow meditation. It consisted of listening to audio tracks designed to affect our brain wave patterns. Over the weekend that I learned Vedic meditation I realized that I had been missing out certain essential things from my meditation practice and it was also obvious that this new mantra was way more effective that the one I got online. On the third night of the course I slept deeply and completely for most of the night which is a new experience for me. My sleep patterns for the last 15 years have been broken; I have been used to waking up repeatedly during the night every night. Each night since the course I have had the same deep sleep for around 6 hours and then light sleeping for whatever time I have left in the morning. Even though I was previously able to fall back to sleep quickly, now that my sleep pattern has changed so dramatically for the better, I realize how much I was missing of the deep sleep phases of the sleep cycle. On those occasions when I have had some negative emotional experience in life, instead of my usual reaction where I try and escape into a film or something, I simply felt that it was ok to feel these things and it no longer caused me any agitation! I have also noticed that my awareness of other people has increased. I am noticing people’s facial expressions are more animated than I ever realized. During my meditation I have noticed that I tend to wave into and out of a deep state between 1 and 4 times in each meditation, which is exactly what Will said would happen in the course. I find that the practice feels more beneficial when I hear the mantra as a deep guttural sound instead of the lighter, more high pitched sound that my previous mantra took on. This seems more primordial somehow. During the meditation I have felt occasional waves of something familiar, feelings that I recognize from my past but that I haven’t been able to access to for a very long time. Feelings such as freedom and wonder and hopefulness, feelings that feel like they’re hovering about me waiting for me to remember. I feel like I have been looking for diamonds all over the place, I am slowly remembering that I need only to look inward to find them. "

"I had battled with anxiety and depression for years and had tried all kinds of remedies tirelessly. My life was still stuck. I finally found Will Williams Meditation. The benefits were instant in terms of mood and soothing the anxiety but I wondered when the deeper changes would occur. I was told the changes would happen subtly, that the meditation works its magic in a very natural way. I kept meditating and slowly began making different choices without realising. It was only three months later, running to a course I never would have been brave enough to do before – it suddenly dawned on me – I was finally living the life I had always dreamed of living. I had arrived at this place so subtly and I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be. I can’t wait to discover what other happy surprises I have in store. It really has changed my life, that is a fact. "

"Will and Jess are absolutely beautiful people and I have had an amazing journey with them! I did the course about 8 months ago and have now been to two retreats. I have to say, I was a bit sceptical at first but I am sooooo happy I gave it a go. I was  in a very dark place when I started and the regular group meds and their willingness to help me through this difficult time have made a huge difference. I am incredibly grateful for everything they’ve done and for the amazing quality of teaching and ongoing support! I would definitely recommend anyone who is ready to try something new to sign up for the course, you will not regret it! "

"I learned 5 weeks ago and my experience has been super positive. My anxiety and depression is lifting, I’m sleeping like a log, I have waves of energy, am super productive at work and less reactive to potentially stressful situations. My friends and colleagues have noticed how much calmer, balanced and happier I seem. I treasure the glimpses of bliss and tranquility I get to experience when I do this. Thank you! "

"I was going through a particularly difficult period in my life when I google searched meditation and found Will Williams Meditation. in late October 2013. I had been experiencing severe depression and anxiety for over a year, I’d had two spells in a psychiatric hospital, my wife had recently filed for divorce, and I just couldn’t cope with all the stress at work so I resigned from my job. I hadn’t listened to all the warning signs and only when I’d gotten to this point did I realise that major change needed to occur before I ended up dead. Despite earning a lucrative career in the City, life simply wasn’t enjoyable, I was existing. I would wake up each morning wondering if the depression would go away and hoping that I could see out the day without having a panic attack. The anxiety was crippling. I had withdrawn into a shell. I didn’t want to do anything to meet anyone, and this, in hindsight was the worst thing I could have done. I was prescribed numerous anti-psychotics and anti-depressants. I found myself walking around like a zombie and there was no joy to be had in anything. I would pray that the next tablet they gave me would work and then my pain would be over, but of course it never did. Every second of every day was spent fixating on my health, Why do I feel this way? Why me? Am I really going mad? I have never experienced anything like this in my whole life and it is a truly awful place to find yourself. I sympathise immensely with anyone who is going through it. I read Will’s website and how meditation could help with anxiety and depression, and the thought came, what have I got to lose? If it doesn’t work, at least I’d tried. So I signed up to Will’s weekend course in London in November 2013, not knowing what to expect, and not necessarily expecting very much at all. Hope for the best, expect the worst was my mentality. Jess (Will’s Girlfriend) met me at the entrance to the venue where they were teaching and I can truly say I’ve never met anyone as sincere and caring as her. She was so welcoming, and she really put me at ease. I then met Will and he was so understanding and I felt so much reassurance. I explained to him my situation and he said he could help. He seemed really confident and really caring. It was an odd feeling, strangers who wanted to help me. Over the course of the weekend I, along with a small group of lovely individuals, were taught how to meditate and given our own unique mantra by Will. We now had the tools, and the know how, to make this work for us. I went home with my new life tool and meditated 20 mins in the morning and the same again in the evening. My mind was all over the place, but apart from a daily swim, and weekend visits with my kids I had nothing else to look forward to so I embraced it. After about a month of meditating daily I began to see big differences, I could seemingly now cope with the anxiety and almost control it. When my chest was thumping or I had butterflies in my stomach I no longer felt scared – there was a knowingness that my body was releasing adrenaline and it was simply my wrecked nervous system making itself known while I began the repair process. Meditation was repairing my body and it became the foundation upon which I started rebuilding my life in a way that made me feel good about myself and the world. I was loving it it in every way and it helped me re-evaluate my whole life. Meaningless things that I’d previously got wrapped up in and thought were important no longer seduced me into giving them more attention than they deserved, and a stark realisation of how my feelings of anger and negativity were holding me back and harming me became very apparent. I began enjoying walks in the park, listening to birdsong, admiring the cloud formations in the sky, feeling and enjoying the green grass and the surrounding trees. Things which I had totally overlooked for my whole adult life – I’d been so caught up in the rat race and the pursuit of material items, I’d been convinced they would provide me with happiness, which they never did for more than a fleeting moment. Now, without even trying, I was tuned into what really mattered and my level of perspective seemed perfectly adjusted. I would live life for me and for the sheer enjoyment of living and appreciating and contributing to the rich tapestry of life that I now felt I belonged to once more. My life is really good now, I know it may sound like a cliche, we’re always trying to convince ourselves and others that we’re happy, but I genuinely feel something profound and beautiful bubbling up within me each day, each moment. I was stuck in an unhealthy marriage and I was very, very unwell in mind and body. Now I’m happier then I can ever remember, and now I feel like I even have the energy and resources to help others wherever I can. Every day feels like a gift. Will is always on hand if you have any questions and if you want to have a bit of football banter, he loves Arsenal. He is an extremely knowledgeable guy, and has a logical answer for almost every situation, his advice has been invaluable to me. Without Will, Jess and the team I don’t know where I’d be now. I believe that you meet people in life for a reason, and I feel so lucky to have encountered them. "

"Since the short time since my course I have noticed remarkable improvements, and the results are truly fantastic. I have been so happy and it is fair to say that before the course happy was not a state that I visited very often. It feels likes I have found the answer for which I have been searching for but never expected to get so quickly or simply. The feeling of happiness has been joined also by a state of calm that has helped me to deal with situations that would normally have made me a bag of nerves. I have found myself dealing with complex presentations without stressing out; I contribute to high level meetings clearly and confidently; I am able to talk with my wife over the phone without getting stressed even when I am having a high impact day or she is unwittingly trying to wind me up (much to her annoyance). I think the biggest impact is the fact that people around me have really noticed the difference -Âť they cant get over the how much I smile now and in such a short time. I can truly say that taking the plunge and going against what society has programmed into my brain as something a bit different, was the best move I have made in a very very long time. I have been suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for the past 3 years and I really wish that everyone that suffers from the same thing could be offered this on the NHS, rather than being abandoned or prescribed antidepressants for the rest of their lives. I have been truly lucky to have recovered as well as I have. Working with Will has helped me overcome the final few hurdles that I had no idea how to overcome. I hope that this message will inspire any fellow suffers to make contact with Will, If you do I am sure it will help you regain those bits of you that you thought were lost forever. I would like to say thank to both Will and Jess for teaching my wife and I this amazing life tool that will help us to grow even closer and deal with any of the stresses that life may throw at us. "

"If you are reading this and wondering whether to do the course, then do it. Whether you have a specific emotional or physical issue or not, all of us in the 21st century are exposed to incessant mental ‘noise’ and information overload. Meditation is a way of finding a bit of deep peace. I am a middle aged corporate lawyer and so pretty far away from what some people think meditation is about i.e. would-be hippies lighting joss sticks, chanting Om and knitting their own yoghurt. Will and Jess are special, welcoming, extremely nice people and entirely normal. Will’s teaching method is totally compatible with modern busy lifestyles. Meditation as Will teaches it is easy to do and you get some benefit from the very first time you do it. Will also gives you great (free) help after the course. If nothing else it is incredibly relaxing, even for beginners. So try it. Absolutely 5 stars. "

"When you have tried everything to battle anxiety and depression for more than 10 years and nothing has worked yet, you easy got the feeling to throw in the towel and ask yourself what is the life for. I was in that point… I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t living, I was just existing. Life was pointless, nothing to be excited for; even friends, family or boyfriend could ever cheer me up. But I’m a fighter, and I don’t throw towels anywhere. So as I’ve been doing for the last ten years I woke up one day and browsing in google for ‘miracle treatment to beat anxiety and panic atacks’ I’ve found on the top of the list Will Williams Meditation. I had to check it out, had to attend one of the free Intro talks. And here I were: Finally met someone who cares about people and cares about happiness. Will and Jess. Jess and Will. The perfect match, the perfect answer for my question. They introduced to me the power of daily meditation. Soon after practising for first time I felt lighter, happier, full of purpose, full of life. Life is a bumpy ride, overwhelming most of the times, but with the meditation you are strong enough to go through. I couldn’t take the tube before without a panic attack, after the third month meditating, I can’t stand the long and annoying bus journey. I can’t go anywhere if it’s not by tube… You see??? Magic is real, Magic is WILL WILLIAMS MEDITATION. "

"What an amazing weekend of knowledge and inspiration! I’ve been experiencing many problems with anxiety and this has been affecting my sleep. I was also very low on confidence and struggling with a deep sense of malaise and there has been a saddening lack of joy in my life for too long. I didn’t really understand how Vedic meditation could help with these things when other techniques and therapies have failed, but I didn’t really know what else to try. One of my concerns was that I really wasn’t confident I was going to be able to do it properly, but Will assured me that everybody can do it, even 5 year old children! I turned up on the first day and waited outside with the incredibly lovely Jess and then went in at the appointed hour. Will gave me a beaming smile and I felt immediately at ease. We did the first meditation and already I felt calmer than I had done in years, and then as the weekend unfolded, Will gave us more and more amazing information about how to make this work in the best possible way. I have a busy life and a very demanding job, but all Will’s tips on how to work it into your day have proven to be gold! I’ve been doing it a month now and all I can say is…wow! This has given me a new lease of life and I find myself going to bed with a smile on my face and then waking up feeling inspired by life again and I literally can’t wait for the day ahead. My friend did it with me and she is glowing in a way I haven’t seen since for a long, long time! All I can say is, if you are thinking of learning meditation in London, I cannot recommend Will and his lovely team highly enough! It feels like the greatest investment I cold have ever made in myself. "

"I was in such a state when I learned a year ago. I couldn’t sleep, I had terrible anxiety, and my depression was quite literally killing me. I am happy to say that meditation has quite literally changed my life. I remember at the time I learned Will mentioned that within 4 months I would start seeing things differently and make life changing decisions. Within 2 months I made three of the best and most significant decisions I have ever made. I have since had the most fantastic year of my life! My creativity and productivity has increased tenfold, my mind is sharper and the anxiety, depression and insomnia have completely gone. Going from reliance on sleeping pills and only getting 20 minutes sleep a night to sleeping 9 hours straight through is just extraordinary. I am so excited for the journey ahead and I cant wait to see what happens next! Thank you for your kindness, compassion and teaching, you are an inspiration to us all. "

"A huge smile comes to my face and a feeling of relief when I think of WWM. A smile because the people running the course and all the people attending the course are lovely and it is such a happy experience. The relief comes from knowing I have been given the tools to deal with every difficult, sad and unpleasant situation life can throw at you. Then I smile again because the more I use the tools the less unhappy situations I find myself in. WWM = 1 continuous smile… "

"I just wanted to say a very warm thank you to both you and Jess for this weekend. I really had no idea that it would make such an impact on me. I came into work this morning and I feel like a totally different person. About 5 people have come up to me today to ask me if I’d been on holiday as I look like I am glowing (apparently!). How freaky is that?! I woke up at 6.30am this morning to do my first meditation of the day. I NEVER wake up at 6.30am for anything other than skiing. But I got up, pottered around for a bit and did my first meditation. Came into work this morning (I was early for the first time in 7 years) feeling happy and positive. This is so far away from how I have been feeling for the last 4 months, that I hardly recognise myself. If this is what Vedic meditation does for me after only 3 days, I am telling you now that you have a lifelong convert on your hands! Thank you both so much from the bottom of my heart. Feeling slightly emotional as I write this as I didn’t realise how much I needed it. I introduced Tim to it thinking that he needed it but as it turns out, I have needed this as much as he did. "
