Learn to Meditate with a Master

Swami Shankarananda’s renowned 4 week Learn to Meditate course is back after nearly 10 years. Based off of his Australian best-seller Happy For No Good Reason, this course carries the fundamental teachings and practices for a life-long meditation toolkit.

Swamiji teaches a variety of ways to contact the inner Self, a space which connects us to higher Consciousness that is joyful, wise, free and empowering. The more we connect with the place inside us, the more uplifted and peaceful we become.

Scientific Research on Meditation

  • A 6-week meditation intervention resulted in significantly improved sleep quality in older adults, with secondary results of reduced depression, insomnia and fatigue. There was also an improvement in secondary health outcomes: insomnia symptoms, depression symptoms, fatigue interference with activities of daily living, and fatigue severity.

  • Meditation changes the physical structure of the brain. Long-term meditators have not only changed brain activity, but also thicker cortical layer compared to non-meditators. This difference was most pronounced in older participants, suggesting that meditation may protect from age-related loss of brain cells (cortical thinning).

  • Meditation is effective in chronic pain. Pain is a mind-body response. Stress, fear and depression can amplify the perception of pain in people experiencing chronic pain. Meditation can change a person’s mental or emotional state, train attention and produce mental relaxation, leading to reduced perception of pain and enhanced quality of life.
