Hello and welcome, My name is Mathieu, I’m a Vedic Meditation teacher and I’m proud to present to you a technique that has been a real support and source of empowerment in my life. Please have a scroll and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you’d like to participate in a free intro talk. Enjoy
WHAT IS VEDIC MEDITATION
It is practiced while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed for 20 minutes twice each day, morning and evening.
The technique has its origins in a 5,000 year-old body of wisdom derived from India known as the Veda. It is the result of thousands of years of research and investigation done by ancient Rishis into the subtle inner workings of the mind, body and consciousness.
From the Veda comes everything we know about yoga and the health science of Ayurveda. This is why many of our colleagues refer to the practice as “Vedic Meditation”.
Vedic Meditation uses a Mantra that leads the activity of thinking to come to rest while the mind remains fully awake and alert. This is a unique state of restful alertness also called pure consciousness.
As the mind de-excites and experiences its least excited state, the body gains a state of deep rest.
Most of us live busy challenging and demanding lifestyles. The demands seem to increase but the time in the day doesn’t. In turn, we demand more and more of ourselves each day. The result is Stress.
Vedic meditation is the ideal natural antidote that eliminates stress and helps the mind and body to rapidly recover from its effect.
Millions of people credit their daily meditation practice with giving them access to an abundant supply of happiness, good health and helping them reach their fullest potential.
The technique is so simple that absolutely anyone can learn, even kids.
The meditation course consists of four sessions held over consecutive days. Courses are conducted in groups or privately for 4 days.
Here’s how the days are structured:
Day 1: (45-60 minutes) you get given personal instruction in the basic steps of how to meditate.
Days 2, 3, 4: (90 minutes each) the technique is refined and further instruction is given on the mechanics of meditation. Knowledge is provided on the effects of meditation on the mind and body.
By the end of the four-day course, you will have mastered the technique and will be able to practice on your own.
Once you learn it you have it for life.
Once you have completed the Vedic meditation course, you’ll then have access to FREE weekly group meditations for Vedic meditators only. You also have the option to take the course again for free as a refresher.

How does Vedic Meditation differ from other types of meditation?
The Vedic Meditation technique is unique and essentially different from other forms of meditation and relaxation. Other types of meditation generally involve concentration (focusing the mind through effort) or contemplation (thinking about the meaning of something).
Vedic meditation is a completely effortless technique that de-excites the mind in a natural and spontaneous way.
What is the relationship between Vedic Meditation, and Transcendental Meditation, as taught and promoted by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi?
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was a revered spiritual teacher from the Shankaracharya lineage of the Vedic tradition.
Mathieu Carlot teaches Vedic Meditation and was trained to teach this form of meditation by Thom Knoles. Thom was trained as a teacher of Transcendental Meditation (“TM”) by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (“Maharishi”), and taught it for over 25 years with organizations affiliated with Maharishi. Since 1997, Thom has continued to teach this meditation as he learned it from Maharishi, and has done so independently and separately from the TM organizations, using the terms “Vedic Meditation". Thom Knoles trained Mathieu to teach meditation as Thom was trained to teach meditation by Maharishi. Mathieu teaches Vedic Meditation independently and separately from TM organizations, and is not affiliated with those organizations.
Is there any religious affiliation with Vedic Meditation?
No, Vedic Meditation is a natural ‘mental technique’ that facilitates the experience of a deep meditative state within the body and mind. The technique originated in ancient India so carries that faint flavour, but Vedic Meditation is non-religious. The meditative state is something everyone gains from regardless of what they believe.
Will I have to change my life and give up things like coffee and alcohol?
No. You are not asked to give up anything.
Will it take years to master?
No. By the end of the meditation course you will be able to meditate on your own. Group meditation meetings are provided to ensure you stay on track with your practice.
