What is Meditation?
Meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body’s own inner intelligence. Practiced for thousands of years, it’s not about forcing the mind to be quiet, it’s finding the silence that’s already there and making it a part of your life. From this field of pure potentiality we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and our deepest sense of connection to the Universe. Practicing meditation on a daily basis allows you to weave silence and stillness into your mind and body to create a life of greater compassion and fulfillment.
“Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that is already there buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.”–DEEPAK CHOPRA

Primordial Sound Meditation is a meditation technique originating in the ancient wisdom of India. This ancient practice has been revitalized and systematized by Dr. Deepak Chopra and can only be taught by a Chopra-certified meditation teacher. Primordial Sounds—the basic, most essential sounds of nature—are used to disconnect us from the activity of life. These individually selected sounds, known as mantras, are based on the vibration the universe was making at the moment of your birth. Once your primordial sound mantra has been determined, you’ll be taught how to use it on a daily basis. You can receive your mantra privately or attend one of our workshops.
