"Will is really passionate about what he does and his masterful understanding and conviction shone through when I attended one of his introductory courses. His passion is certainly infectious, made more so because it is also supported and complimented by his in-depth knowledge of techniques, history and practices. His is an extremely convincing story since he is someone who came to meditation via his own personal experience and choice – he knows what he is talking about. I found the sessions informative, hugely interesting and left with plenty of food for thought. The 20 min meditation that he taught us was different to other techniques that I have done before which were based strongly on visualization. Will’s technique is comparatively introspective, allowing you to explore on your own and setting you free to meditate on a more individual level. If you are looking for something that completely takes you away and makes you feel like you’ve had 8 hours sleep and woken up instantly alert and revived, then check out Will Williams’ course. You won’t ever look back. Welcome to a new life! "

"

Having tried counselling, hypnotherapy and other forms of meditation, I can say that Vedic meditation is the one which has been life-changing for me. For the first time in my life, I can sleep and think calmly before reacting to circumstances.

Unlike other forms of meditation, Vedic meditation does not require to free your mind of all thoughts but to simply let those thoughts flow over you while concentrating on a mantra and in time, those thoughts become all but a distant murmur in the background.
Thanks to this wonderful technique, meditation has become an intrinsic part of my life, without which I could not survive the daily stresses and troubles of life and wonder how I ever managed before.

I’m extremely grateful to Jess and Will for introducing me to the wonderful world of Vedic meditation and for providing a safe outlet via their weekly group sessions for releasing all the negativity which has built up over the years and which otherwise would have released itself in other undesirable ways. I highly recommend that you take the course, it will change your life!

"Vedic meditation has changed my life. It has given me a wonderfully positive outlook on everything. I have become even more obsessed with nature. I now pick and choose my battles (if any!), am more calm and I need less sleep. I wish I had found it years ago! "

"I attended Will’s meditation course a couple of months ago and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’m really seeing the benefits and they just seem to get better with time. The main benefit for me has been an increase in energy and better sleep and I feel happier and healthier than I have in a while. I’d tried a few different types of meditation before but I found vedic meditation really worked for me – it’s so easy to do, fits into your daily life and enabled me to connect in a way I hadn’t managed previously. Will and Jess are so fantastic and have such a great knack for making you feel comfortable. They’re great teachers and their support continues after the course finishes. I would totally recommend this course without question. Thanks Will and Jess! "

"Vedic meditation is such a beautiful practice. I am already feeling so many wonderful benefits, even after only a few weeks. It completely revitalises and energises me, so no more obligatory morning espressos! My sleep is now more peaceful and I wake in the mornings utterly refreshed. I have more energy, more motivation and I concentrate better at work. I also inadvertently discovered its a great hangover cure! (if another reason was needed!) The practice has also integrated into my life so effortlessly, despite the fact I am juggling the final year of my degree, working and a whole load of other life commitments! It’s just that easy! Also, you want to do it every day because it gives you something a lot of us in the ultra busy modern world are lacking- time for ourselves. This has been the best thing personally- the meditation has created a space for me to just be. Will is fantastic teacher. He has in abundance what all great teachers have- knowledge, passion for his work and the ability to inspire. I felt so assured and confident from day 1. The course itself was such a revelation and I learned so much more than I ever expected. It was also great to meet so many other students and experienced meditators. I felt encouraged and warmly supported throughout – and I still do! Learning vedic meditation is one of the best things I have ever done. It has been the ultimate gift of kindness to myself because every day I know my life is becoming more enriched and joyful because of it. I will end by saying what we all unanimously agreed on the course- I only wish I had learned earlier. "

"Will’s Vedic Meditation course just came at the right time in my life. At the time I was not centered, didn’t know what to do with my life and felt a little lost. Then a friend recommended Will’s course and since then things have drastically changed. I am sleeping better, I feel more compassionate, I am more confident and although I still don’t know what exactly I want to do in life I know I am exactly on the right path. Jess and Will are very patient and will answer all the questions you may have especially at the beginning or later on. They have also created a great community, make sure to try out the group meditations! "

"

I feel as though I know a secret that no one else knows….seriously, I feel as though I have stumbled upon some secret world like Narnia only this time it is real.  I do not say this lightly, Vedic meditation has rocked my world.  I have had a daily meditation practice for many years, mainly mindfulness but wow the course taught by Will and subsequent retreat I attended gave me an entirely new appreciation of meditation.
I have more energy, I am more focused, I don’t rush as much, I’m sleeping better and take time to find the joy in life rather than rush through it…ok so I just gave away the secret but for sure my little bubble of contentment and happiness is real and I attribute it to my new meditation practice.  Thank you Will and team, keep teaching and sharing your passion.

"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 have taken this course over two months ago. My main issue was that I couldn’t sleep and was feeling quite stressed out and drained. Always on the go, juggling work, exercise, social events, travels and I have been suffering from on and off insomnia for years. I reached a point when I was feeling exhausted, I had enough and came across this technique while browsing online. I went to a free talk and met Will, and I was sold! After a week of meditating twice a day, I was sleeping like a log! I couldn’t believe it! I now feel very relaxed, connected and totally stress free which is an amazing experience. Life no longer feels like a struggle but a more like a great adventure. As weeks went on, meditating started giving me more clarity about my life and myself and I am now starting a new career. I am starting my studies again, that was definitely not the plan 3 months ago! I am literally flying and feel unstoppable and I never felt so clear, confident that this is what I was meant to do, there is no more room for doubts. My relationships with colleagues, friends and family have totally improved; I feel an extraordinary connection and catch myself engaging with strangers everywhere I go! I cannot explain it but meditating is changing my life daily, I eat better, drink less alcohol (my body doesn’t enjoy it as much), I feel totally rested and relaxed and life just feels amazing! I would totally recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a stress-free, amazing life! "

"I’ve been meditating for just under a year now having played around with the idea for many years. I had tried all sorts to combat stress, insomnia and anxiety but without success. I embarked on the weekend course and have found the technique so simple and easy to do from day to day. Meditation can be done anywhere and is such a wonderful tool to have to overcome so many of life’s stresse and challenges. I have become a calmer, more grounded person and my insomnia is almost a distant memory. Meditation is a part of my daily life and without it I would be at a loss. I have since attended one of the retreat weekends and have another coming up this summer. They are an amazing opportunity to learn new techniques and enhance the already wonderful meditations I experience. Will and Jess are fantastic human beings and are so committed to spreading the word and making Vedic meditation accessible to people all over. Their teaching style is down to earth, compassionate and insightful and they are truly dedicated to what they believe in. I have completed the Veda 1 course which blew me away and opened an array of other avenues to explore. I look forward to Veda 2 and meeting many more fantastic people over the coming years. "

"

I knew about meditation before I had the course with Will, but the meditations I did was mainly guided or with music. With the Vedic meditation technique, I can meditate anywhere, anytime and what better place than in the tube on my way to work :-). In the first month after the course, I noticed that I slept better and did not not get annoyed as quickly/often as before. Even though I do not always get to meditate every day now, I use meditation for times when I know I will have a busy day ahead or if I have not slept well. It is an incredible powerful tool and I recommend that everyone give it a try – it is truly lifechanging.

"I’d been debating about learning to meditate for a long time. I’d originally tried mindfulness but found that it was too “fiddly” to incorporate into my everyday life. I finally took the plunge three months ago and attended Will’s course. Since then I haven’t looked back, I’ve found the benefits to be amazing. My stress levels have come down, I’m sleeping better than ever before and as I travel a lot for work I’ve managed to find a brilliant way of combating jet lag. "

"As a mum that works full time I really look forward to those two little pockets of time in the day that I dedicate to meditation. The sleep I’m getting since I started mediating is good quality sleep and although I only manage 7 hours (and sometimes less if any little people get up in the night) I feel like I’ve had the 9 hours I would like to get! At weekends my 4 year old has taken to sitting quietly next to me while I mediate. Sometimes he just sits (and watches me, I think) and sometimes he looks at a book. It is now part of the weekend routine and he seems to look forward to it as much as I do. Better sleep is just one of the benefits. Being calmer and more tolerant of dirty dishes not put in the dishwasher or clothes not quite getting in the laundry basket but falling by it (every single time!) as well as people grabbing me at work as I’m trying to run out of the door and the long commute back to Essex every day. Life just seems a bit more vivid and full of energy which is great for me but also my son and husband too. "

It was a refreshing experience that left me feeling positive and energised and happy to continue with something that I know will be extremely beneficial in my life. I only wish I had discovered it much, much earlier. I thought Will’s manner wonderfully beguiling. He embodied the efficacy of his beliefs being calm, thoughtful, highly responsive, engaging, enlightening without being preachy and altogether compelling! I hope to never look back. I will tell all my friends and family about this wonderful technique and I will look out for Will’s book and buy it and I would love to keep in touch and drop in for the odd group meditation as a refresher. Of course it’s very early days for me and I don’t have any doubt at all that it is going to help me sleep better and live better!! Wonderful!! Thank you so much!! xxx "

"I attended a 4 session course in April, and my objectives were to become a bit more relaxed and to improve my sleep problems, which were considerable. Will teaches the meditation in a way that is really straight forward to follow and I have completed the morning & evening meditations probably 99% of times over the 6 months since. I never would have guessed that I would keep it up so diligently but I have to admit I really rather love it! After about 2 months it dawned on me that I had been sleeping so much better, bit by bit, every week it had been getting better. Now I get a good 7 hours sleep most nights, only waking for a very short period probably once a night. I have even found the light mornings of summertime don’t worry me now, as they used to, which is such a relief. I am also much more relaxed. In the past I tried mindfulness meditation, but I found trying to keep my mind clear of thoughts was impossible and it led me to feelings of failure & a longing for the session to be over. It nearly put me off meditation completely but I thought I’d give it one more go and chanced upon Will’s site. I have found that Vedic meditation is much easier to practice and I actually look forward to the 20 minutes morning & evening and see them as one of the highlights of my day. The group meditations that you have access to after you have learned are amazing. It’s difficult to articulate the relaxation & satisfaction that comes every time you do one. I look on the meditation from a scientific point of view and not a spiritual one, and I have been really pleased with the results so far and I actually cannot wait to take it to the next level on a retreat, I am really intrigued by how good this is!

I didn’t have any particular expectations when I embarked on Will’s introductory course, but was willing to try anything which might alleviate my chronic insomnia. The impact has been astonishingly swift and positive. Life is just so much easier now. My relationships have improved, I am much more effective at work, and I have a sense of wellbeing that I haven’t experienced in years. Thank you Will, Jess and Elle for your generosity and inspiration.

"I have to admit I was a little sceptical when I first decided to learn meditation from Will. I liked the idea of meditation, but coming from a totally non-religious background, I wanted to understand the science behind it all as well as learn the process. So, Will assured me that he was the man for the job and I signed up for the weekend course. I have to say, by the end of the weekend I was a believer! I thought Will was very impressive – He had a great balance of knowledge, enthusiasm and was an excellent teacher. He was able to handle any question our group threw at him and handle them very very well. I have come away extremely excited and motivated to practice meditation and am now a week or so into my own experience of it. My main observations so far are increased energy levels in the day and I am far more relaxed. I’m sure there are many more to come, but this is a pretty awesome start! I would highly recommend Will to anyone looking to start meditating… he’s the man! 🙂 PS. A year on I’m feeling no anxiety at all, and i’m sleeping like a baby, its a revelation! "

"Firstly I would like to note that Will is an excellent teacher; I found the Vedic technique easy to learn and use. I also think his knowledge about meditation is impressive, and I enjoy the fact that he is engaged with both ancient teachings and modern scientific findings. I have also been delighted by the continuing support and sense of community offered. I think this is a really important part of meditation, and Will and Jess deliver it with great kindness, warmth and fun. They are both approachable and lovely people. Vedic meditation has been a wonderful addition to my life. I feel that some of the most pronounced positive changes include: being able to sleep properly again; various phobias disappearing (e.g. embarrassingly, I used to be very afraid of pigeons, and now I can practically let them perch on my foot); I panic less, and feel less anxious; I feel more balanced, and calm; I have less desire to drink alcohol and have given up smoking; I feel more compassionate; I find it easier to be friendly and congruent between different groups of people. I’m sure there are more (and more to come), but having just meditated before writing this, I would also note that when my head is feeling really frazzled from work, stressful situations, fatigue or illness, meditating clears my mind, calms me, grounds me, and makes me feel more energised. I have tried other forms of meditation, and I don’t want to put them down in any way, but I have found that Vedic meditation is the easiest to learn and incorporate into daily life, and has the most pronounced benefits.

"On moving to London from New Zealand at the end of February this year, I struggled to settle into the new London lifestyle and experienced my first ever panic attack within weeks of arriving. I had always had an interest in mediation and had tried traditional meditation classes back home, but struggled to do it and keep it up. My mum had done some research online and suggested I give Vedic Meditation with Will a go. I can honestly say the course has completely changed me for the better. I am so much calmer, happier and confident. My relationships are better, I sleep better and my diet is alot better! I have a new found energy and love for life. I can’t express how beneficial the course has been. I loved it so much I’ve already booked in for the retreat in October. Vedic mediation is very easy to do and has instant positive effects. I would recommend Will’s course 110%. Both Will and Jess are not only amazing teachers but such genuine and kind people, the support they give both during and after the course is incredible. Thank you so much to you both for this life changing skill! If you are thinking about giving it a go – DO! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain! "

"Having suffered from insomnia on and off for several years, I used to rely on ‘quick fixes’ – almost always involving pharmaceuticals – to alleviate periods of high stress, anxiety and insomnia. 3 weeks ago, following a very bad insomnia crisis which was going on for several weeks, I decided to change my strategy and see if I could tackle these issues from a completely different perspective – I needed to find a way to ‘calm my mind’. I came across Will’s meditation website and after reading a few of the reviews, I signed myself for a free intro talk. I have to admit, up until then, I considered myself a rather skeptical/cynical person, perhaps due to my science/medical background, but after attending the free talk, it didn’t take me long to leave my skepticism behind and book myself to a 3 day course starting the day after. The way the course was conducted, particularly the way every question was explained, really appealed to me. Every word had a meaning and one that made absolute sense! The group discussions were very engaging and I feel I could relate a lot to what was being discussed. From the day I started meditated, my sleep improved dramatically. I have now been meditating for just over 2 weeks and I feel a much more positive, less anxious and happier person. Will and his team are so lovely and very approachable. The support provided after the course is again exceptional. I have been attending group meditation sessions on a weekly basis which I find them rather special: great energy and you have the opportunity to meet amazing people and hear their journey/share experiences. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. A life changer! "

"For as long as I can remember I have had trouble sleeping. Struggling to get off to sleep, always waking up several times through the night, and the sleep I did get was very shallow. This is due almost entirely to stress. Mentally – my mind just won’t switch off, and keeps running my problems on a hellish loop, and Physically – I store a lot of stress in my shoulders and upper back. As a result my shoulders ache – A Lot. Since the very first night after just 2 meditations I have slept deeply and continuously every night, and the stress in my shoulders has disappeared. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for this. You have changed my life. "

"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! "

"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. "

"When I first met Will and Jess – I really didn’t know what to expect. A friend of mine had recommended meditation to help re-align my nervous system after the terrible emotional time I have had over the past few months with the death of a much loved family member and a stressful job. I was rather sceptical at first but I have kept an open mind throughout the process and so far have been pleasantly surprised. In less than a week, I am sleeping better than I have for a very long time, my skin is glowing, my tummy has flattened as my digestive system seems to have sped up and best of all, I am not getting as stressed out as I used to at work over daily little upsets – they just wash over me now. I’m kicking myself. Why didn’t I try this years ago! "

"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’m really happy for having done the course. I do meditations as Will recommended, and the results have been amazing. I can’t believe how well I’m sleeping now, I never slept so deeply before.
Also, my levels of positivity have increased enormously. Another really funny thing, I love ‘the smiths’, I’ve been listening to that group for maybe 30 years? I thought I knew every single note and sound like the palm of my hand…but no! I promised I experienced what Will mentioned about music in the course…there are chords that I never, ever had heard before…it’s incredible!

"Let me start my stating that I usually do not write reviews. However I am making an acception here because of the truly profound experience that I have gained from Will Williams meditation. I have only been meditating for 2 months, since that time my insomnia has gone. I used to get only 1 hour sleep if I was lucky, but now I get 7 good hours of pure blissful sleep. In the past I also lost my temper and got stressed at work. Those problem are also history now, I am much calmer and never get stressed even in the toughest situations. All this achieved in only 2 months and I am continuing to meditate twice a day. In the months ahead I intend to expand my knowledge further. I would highly recommend Will Williams meditation to everyone as it will definitely help you in some capacity. Will and his team are all extremely friendly and very helpful. Indeed, I have had the privilege to be taught by Will himself and he explains things very clearly and answers all questions thoroughly. Give them a try, it maybe the best decision you could make. "

"Following the group meditation I felt much more alive. I went to bed about midnight and normally would be anxious about getting up at 6.30am as would feel sleep deprived but I woke up before the alarm ready and alert, had a shower then meditated and that really made a difference in terms of not ‘rushing’ through it or being impatient with time. Had a very productive morning and arrived at work half hour earlier feeling calm – normally I get there just at the nick of time. "

"My friend Mat had been doing this meditation for a long time and kept telling me I should do it, but for some reason I just couldn’t understand how it worked or how it could be good for me. Having finally decided to take the course, I can genuinely say that Will really did change my life. Initially, nothing immediate or that profound arose, but over time I am seeing my considerable positive changes in my life. I have more energy, I sleep better, my thinking is much clearer and I am way, way happier. The reason I came to Will was because I had recently been diagnosed with something called Meniere’s disease, a condition that is apparently related to stress and lifestyle issues. Since I’ve been meditating twice a day, I am no longer feeling many of the effects of the condition. It hasn’t gone away entirely but I now feel I have an ability to control situations again. I feel better able to manage myself and the anxiety that I have been experiencing for some time. I am also feeling so much more creatively inspired. I am recommending Will’s technique to everyone who I speak to. There are loads of people around me who are asking why I am so positive and chilled out lately, and I find myself recommending Will’s technique to everyone who asks. Having seen and enjoyed the benefits of having a calmer husband, my wife is about to start the course too. Thanks a million Will! "
