The course is four 90 minute sessions, usually done on consecutive days. During these sessions, you receive your mantra, complete meditation instruction, and begin a twice daily meditation practice that continues after the course.
Once completed, you will be self-sufficient as a meditator for the rest of your life. Additionally, you receive a Lifetime of Free Follow up to group meditations and knowledge sessions from every teacher in the Vedic Network, worldwide, that you can use as little or as much as you choose.
In essence, we teach you everything you need to know to meditate on your own, and offer a free lifetime of support to keep you on track.
Years ago, if you wanted to learn from Guru Dev, the man who gave us Vedic Meditation, you traveled to the Himalayas for this same 4 day course. He charged students a week's wages.
A grain farmer brought a week's grain, The King of Siam, a week's worth of riches. This ensured the practice was available to everyone, and the fee meaningful to each student. This is key, because students who underpay or learn for free tend not to stick with the practice. We only teach students who are genuinely interested, and express that by paying what is for them a meaningful amount.
It's an honor system, but a week's wages can be a good guideline to determine where you fall on a Sliding Scale from $500 - $2500. What's important is it be a meaningful amount to you, and a genuine expression of value.
Also, many students pay their course fee in Installments over a number of months. We simply agree on a payment plan, and the student pays on that schedule.
"I was a sporadic meditator before a course with Andrew. I instantly felt more connected to Vedic meditation than what I'd been doing. It's both super simple and super powerful. Life goes better on days when I meditate. I'm happier and better at what I do".
