"I have been mediating for about 2 months and since doing so I have noticed a dramatic change in the levels of stress that I feel on a daily basis. I really look forward to sitting down to do them as they help me to feel more balanced than I ever have. I have battled with an eating disorder for 5 years and although I have managed to make progress alone, the meditation has enabled me, almost immediately, to think in a much more rational way, helping me to cope with all the things that used to trigger my self destructive behaviours. Other coping mechanisms such as smoking and drinking have also been a problem for me and I have watched in a very short space of time, my need for those things, diminish. It’s truly amazing and I feel high on life alone, a complete and utter blessing and something a lot of people around me, never managed to do. The change has enabled me to feel a sense of freedom in my life that I have been searching for, for a very long time. I would recommend this to anyone willing to give it a try. I am very grateful to have found this x "

"I’ve been meditating for 12 days now and I feel so relaxed, my wife has told me that I am like a new person. I haven’t smoked at all since that Thursday I am just not feeling the urge, it’s great! Work wise, it’s been fantastic, I am very calm and very focused. My to do list is done daily by 5pm which is unheard of. Overall I would say not just surprised, but amazed.   "

"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.

"As with millions of people in London or living in any major city, life was good, but slightly frayed around the edges. For me, pulling at the thread was not an option, so I tried meditating for years. Before my course with Will, I never quite found a course, which worked with my needs, made me feel safe. I was struggling to sit still for two minutes, and being told to visualise a hot air balloon or a dolphin wasn’t working either. After a horrendous shopping trip off Oxford Street, I stopped off at Wholefoods for some R & R, saw there was an introduction for the course around the corner and had less than ten minutes to make it. I was armed with scepticism and questions, which Will answered frankly and cogently. I never travel with a map, therefore couldn’t see a valid reason not to sample the vedic meditation course. I’m fairly grounded, healthy and balanced, but have enough buzz and energy to power a small town. Naturally, I was convinced I knew all there was to know about me: I hadn’t even scratched the surface. Sound judgement, stronger intuition, choosing your battles, erasing and replacing redundant persons or situations with better things, communicating resourcefully with yourself and others – the list goes on; all no doubt by-products from the realignment, which comes from my daily meditation practice. I’m a social smoker, but must admit, smoking does feel like a dreadful habit now as opposed to that blissfully, lovely ritual it once was – sometime I don’t even notice when I haven’t had my one of three rollies a day. I can’t walk on water, move mountains, but feeling alright again is a great starting point. "

"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. "

"It’s been an amazing week. I have meditated twice a day, yesterday I was in the park. My senses feel heightened, I have had a visual feast watching my favourite Kubrick movies. I feel more confident. My brain has done some amazing healing. I stopped smoking but had a little lapse. But I am determined to quit. Friends have said how amazing I look and two friends will sign up for the intro talk. Really good things are happening and I am loving life. "
