Our secret formula for success:

  • We make meditation SIMPLE & EASY

    We break meditation down into small, bite-size pieces, so it feels easy and simple to do. We know from experience that if meditating doesn’t feel easy, you’re not going to do it.

  • We provide lots of ONGOING SUPPORT

    Once you become personally trained by Light Watkins, you will continue to receive regular accountability emails and unlimited support directly from Light and his colleagues.

  • We encourage COMMUNITY

    We’ve taught thousands of people to meditate, and you will have free access to tons of community events, like weekly group meditations and meditation refresher courses.

Upcoming trainings

You can receive instruction in Vedic Meditation after attending an Intro to Meditation session where you meet with Light and hear him discuss the in's and out's of the practice. Then, you can better decide if you'd like to take his comprehensive training, which usually starts the next day, and includes four 90-minute sessions over four consecutive days. You may take as much time as you need to consider and plan for the training.

Light will announce the training times at the Intro Session, as they may vary based on time and location. An example schedule for a weekday training is Monday through Thursday, at 7am or 7pm (you can pick which time works best for your schedule each day). And weekend trainings may be Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 10am, Sunday at 10am and Monday at 7pm. Again, these are all 90-minute sessions.

Once your training is over, you have the ability to repeat the sessions on any future course, and maintain contact with Light so he can check your experiences.

Books & digital offerings

We highly recommend live instruction when possible, as there is no substitute for being shown personally how to meditate. But if you don't live in one of the cities where Light offers live instruction, there are alternative ways of learning meditation, including Light's book, The Inner Gym, his audio course, and his Basic Meditation Principles video course, which is the most comprehensive option for learning.

Upcoming meditation retreats

Retreats are the perfect way to get out of your daily routine and invest time and attention in your practice. Plus, on retreat, you'll have a unique opportunity to explore deeper knowledge, more advanced techniques of meditating, and best of all, connect with other meditators in a meaningful way. Click your desired retreat option below for more information:
