Vedic Meditation Teacher

Vibrant, authentic, happy people make the world a better place. You can become this with a simple technique to release stress and access inner happiness anytime you wish. Peace begins within you.
— Hunter Cressman

My journey...

into meditation began in 2009 as a college graduate after moving to New York from California. Through a friend, I discovered Vedic Meditation and it changed my life in all the right ways. Within 3 weeks of meditating, my insomnia was gone and anxiety diminished after years of stressful engineering school and a difficult breakup.

Meditation empowered me to build a new life in New York and thrive as an engineer in the city hustle without getting burned out. The simple technique provides me with the energy, clarity, creativity, and inner happiness I need to elegantly balance a successful career with a vibrant social and family life.

After my first five years of daily meditation practice, I embarked on a 12-week teacher training program in the Himalayas of India, all under the guidance of world renown master teachers.

Shortly after graduating in 2014, I created The Modern Mind to bring the lifelong benefits of meditation and ancient knowledge to busy, modern people like you. As a master-trained expert, I’m committed to making meditation approachable, relatable, practical, and fun to learn, while honoring the teaching with integrity.

I’m passionate about teaching Vedic Meditation in service of spreading experiential wisdom that enables anyone to skillfully create a more authentic, peaceful, and fulfilling life from the inside out.

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

My mission...

is to help you establish a daily meditation practice that will elevate your consciousness. The world needs your gifts, and stress can become a barrier. Stress is easy to overcome with Vedic Meditation. This practical technique effortlessly and naturally upgrades brainpower, allowing you to rapidly let go of stressful thoughts, focus clearly, make better decisions, and feel happy for no reason.

When you learn how to upgrade your own state of consciousness, your capacity to fulfill your desires and live purposefully increases. You can solve problems more effectively, innovate more impactful solutions, and create a sustainable work-life balance.
