"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 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. "

"I’ve been working with various meditation practices for many years but I always found it far too easy to come up with an excuse not to sit and practice, until now that is. I came away from Will’s introductory course feeling totally tranquil for the first time in years Eloquently guiding us through the course , Will has a wonderfully gifted ability to mix science with spiritual understanding. He lead s you through the basic principles and techniques in a way that anyone could follow and implement and it all comes together into such an easy practise. By the end of the course you feel armed with everything you need to make it work for you. The benefits of doing the 20 minutes of meditation twice a day are tangible even after a few short months; I’ve had some of my best night’s sleep in years and it feels fabulous. I should also mentionthat this has been an invaluable tool in my recovery  from alcoholism. For years I’ve been struggling to  stay of the drink for concerted periods of time, but the more I do this, the more I feel at complete ease and don’t feel compelled to hit the self destruct button. And contrary to previous practice , I haven’t missed a day yet. This has obviously sparked a considerable interest in all things Vedic and I am now looking forward to doing a retreat with Will & Jess in March. One of the chaps on the course I was with went to one last month and said it was immense! "

"Will is a superb teacher. He has such a depth of knowledge and understanding of meditation and Vedic wisdom that he shares with his students and he combines this beautifully with passion and gentleness. I particularly enjoy going along to the free group meditations which they provide once you’ve completed your course. Will talks to each member of the group and listens carefully to our stories – what has worked, what hasn’t worked, and he is fantastic at addressing all of our questions and concerns. He offers suggestions and practical advice to help guide us to ever more fulfilling experiences, both within the meditation and outside of it. We always finish with a group meditation which is powerful stuff! Introducing meditations into my life has vastly reduced my stress levels and added an awareness and a sense of peace that I am able to drawer upon throughout the day. It has had a profound impact on my life experience and I honestly can’t imagine what life would be like now without it, it’s too good! "

"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 have tried other types of meditation, most recently vipassana and mindfulness, but Vedic Meditation through Will’s teaching came more easily and gave more than I had thought possible. I’ve found it increasingly profound and restorative in its effect on my life. It continually surprises me how peaceful and rejuvenating the experience is, I would recommend it to anyone.   "

"I found the meditation weekend such a breakthrough experience, it was a long time I hadn’t felt that strong spiritual connection with the world and people around me. Will was very engaging and reassuring, even when the experience was challenging, and I felt safe to explore in the workshop setting. Vedic meditation helped me with sleep and stress level, but above all to reconnect with the present moment, which was exactly what I wanted to achieve. "

"Meditation is my medication… it’s no coincidence these two words are so similar. As soon as I began meditating with this technique my whole body started vibrating with such an overwhelming feeling that I couldn`t help but smile. Now I`m more connected to myself and more present in my life. It’s something so beautiful to experience which is why I’ll always thank  Will for teaching me this Vedic meditation and I’ll always recommend this to my friends. "

"Having done many years of yoga, mindfulness and other guided meditation techniques , I came across this website and felt like I wanted to try a new style of meditation to see if it could deliver . Once I completed the course I started practising for 20 minutes twice a day as suggested, repeating this simple little mantra that Will gave me. All I can say is wow ! What a difference this has made to my life!! I had felt a long yearning to alter my path in life but I didn’t really know how to accomplish that change , until now. Vedic meditation has brought a clarity to my thinking, a different perspective on life and it has delivered a sense of calm, peace of mind, and a tangible sense of oneness with my myself and the world I now feel a part of. These days, the pace of life seems so fast and just so full of ‘stuff’ that investing 20 mins twice a day may seem a little daunting at first. However, the rewards are significant and plentiful and there is nothing that would deter me from doing my daily practice, it simply adds too much value to my life. And it buys me time. Lots of it. I am no longer caught up in the rush as I used to be and it seems to make everything much smoother and more manageable. Will and the team are genuine, sincere, thought provoking and really good fun!

"I have found my memory has definitely improved, especially my memory of what I have read which is good news because I found that quite challenging at university. I also remember conversations more vividly. My mind seems to be focussing on the relevant things rather than the distractions it sometimes gets caught up in. What is most encouraging is that I feel that each day that passes I am getting more and more in tune with myself and that I am becoming a more whole self-actualised person. "

"I have been practicing different types of meditation for the past 2 years and was very interested to learn Vedic meditation. I was hoping to get some general well-being benefits some time down the line and did not expect that it would totally rock my world! The very next day I started waking up before my alarm and now I wake up around 6 am every morning. I have been getting enough sleep every night due to deep rest during meditation. I also found that it is a lot easier to get into the meditative state while practicing Vedic mediation compared to mindfulness, awareness and Kriya… I find meditation incredibly rewarding, I have not skipped a single one. On the contrary, I look forward to practicing every morning and evening. An interesting thing happened just 4 daysafter I have learned it. I run a half marathon (which I have only done 3 times prior). The last one was 4 months ago and because of the summer holidays I pretty much did not train for this race. I run 14 mins faster thanmy last race and was really surprised with the result! Since I have learned I have a lot more energy throughout the day and feeling so upbeat I have gone through my long to-do list and now working on projects I have started and never finished long time ago. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I just wish everybody had a chance to learn this, it’s truly a miracle! Will and Jess are so lovely and knowledgeable, they will help and guide you through any challenges you have. "

"I first met Will in India a couple of years ago and was inspired by his knowledge of and dedication to meditating. I have practiced meditation seriously for about 20 years, exploring various methods and techniques, and I can sincerely say that after attending Will’s meditation course I was very impressed with the profound power of the process he teaches. I very highly recommend Will Williams Meditation to anyone and everyone – beginners and advanced meditators, for those who may be struggling with any problems in life as well as for those who are not, and, as this is not a dogmatic religious system – for those who may or may not be practising a spiritual path. This course is truly for everyone…it’s the real deal. "

"I had been attempting to practise mindfulness for about 15 years but could never really clear my busy mind of thoughts and I always felt like a bit of a failure because of it. Vedic meditation turned out to be exactly what I was looking for: a very practical, very easy way of meditating. All I had to do was repeat the mantra Will gave me. Having meditated for four months, twice a day, I’ve already felt a significant difference in my life: There’s a greater sense of underlying calm, a clearer perspective on the little dramas which no longer seem to affect me, and i’m convinced it has helped me to quit smoking too. I now feel I’m at the beginning of a lifelong journey – there is so much to discover it seems! Will is a very sincere and engaging exponent of this great knowledge. "

"This is totally unlike any other meditation I’ve done before. Its so much easier than anything else I’ve tried, and i’ve done a fair few types and nothing ever really stuck. The mechanics of this, with that wonderful little mantra make it a breeze to do. Will told us in the introductory talk that EVERYBODY can and does do this really successfully but I was a little sceptical. Having now practised it, I can honestly say its impossible not to get it and I can now see how even young children can do it. I especially like the fact that you’re not forced to think in any kind of way, this just allows you to be. It’s easy, it’s really relaxing and you feel absolutely top notch after every meditation. I really can’t recommend this highly enough. Even if you think you’ve tried lots of meditation in the past. Try this and I bet you it will exceed your expectations. "
