Before learning Vedic Meditation with Hunter, I practiced guided meditation for 4 years and still felt very anxious and worried about the future. Since taking the course with Hunter, my anxiety has significantly reduced. I have become more organized with all of my activities and I feel more friendly. Experiencing this kind of change in just a few days already makes this course one of the best investments I have ever made in myself.

Hunter’s teaching style is very clear and precise. His peaceful personality is very inspiring. I also like that he makes himself available for follow-up after the course. This helps me feel completely committed to continue meditating twice a day.

Since learning Vedic meditation I’m more awake and mentally balanced. I also look forward to meditating every day whereas before it felt like something ‘I had to do.’

The course felt easy and natural. Hunter makes learning meditation simple and effortless. He is humble with knowledge and makes everyone feel welcome.

I took the course to develop a daily meditation practice. I’ve tried several different methods and didn’t find something that worked until I learned Vedic meditation. It’s easy and manageable to do twice a day.

I find that I’m excited to do my next meditation which is a new feeling for me. In the past it felt more like a chore, but now I look forward to getting to the chair to do my meditation.”

In not even a week of practice I have noticed more awareness of my emotions and the emotions of others, a deeper well of patience to draw from when under stressful demands, and more love for everyone around me, even while sitting on a subway car. It feels really good.

I wholeheartedly recommend this course. Hunter is the perfect balance between a spiritual guide and a professor. He is passionate about his subject, incredibly educated, articulate and a living enlightened human being.

I enjoyed developing a consistent practice that felt positive yet gentle over the four day course. I liked being able to ask questions as they occurred, and hearing other peoples questions was useful and reassuring. I can see a great benefit in our community at the Mill practicing meditation together.

Learning Vedic knowledge from Thom has enhanced my sense of universal Being, and in turn has helped me approach life’s demands with much more elegance and ease. I felt noticeably refreshed right away and ready to approach my marriage in particular with a renewed sense of love and expansion. Hunter’s practical tips about how to be with others and increase the quality of all my relationships have been extremely helpful.

Exploring the Veda with Hunter is a totally unique and elevating experience. Not only does he serve as a patient, insightful guide as you explore deep knowledge together, but he also adds a personal touch to every aspect of the weekend. It’s easy to feel at home in Hunter’s beautiful urban ashram, and his homemade meals are nourishing in every way. Hunter is devoted to giving his students the fullest, most enriching experience possible.

I loved the intimate setting and small group. I also loved that we had time and space to ask Hunter questions after listening to each recording. He created an environment in which I felt totally comfortable asking him anything, related to the course or otherwise, and this resulted in me learning so much more than I expected. If I had to choose a favorite aspect of the course, it would be how open and receptive Hunter was to answering any and every question, and how much valuable knowledge he shared with us.

My meditation practice was very sporadic until the course with Hunter, which helped reduce my insomnia and bring back passion for my work. Hunter has a grace, calm and maturity that worked well for me. His use of analogies really brought the meditation concepts to life in a very helpful way.

I enjoyed being in a group session with different people at different stages of life, as they asked insightful questions that I may not have thought about on my own. Also, the setting was so lovely - sitting comfortably in a beautiful living room instead of the cold, hard chaired church basements or conference halls.

My experiences in meditation before this class were mediocre. Having a personalized course with Hunter’s guidance was really effective.

I absolutely recommend the course with Hunter especially as someone who is new to meditation. He creates a very comfortable environment for learning and asking questions, and he uses simple analogies that helped me easily relate to the practice.

I’ve been feeling the benefits immediately since the course. I feel more patient, present and relaxed. I enjoyed the simplicity and repetition of the teaching. The course was intimate so I didn’t feel like I was just a listener in a crowd. There was clarity, order and sense to the way Hunter explains things. Nothing contradicted itself, and I was able to walk away with a very simple mandate on what to do, and a large sense of hope for what I’ll achieve.

I have kept up with my twice daily meditation for the past 7 months now, and I feel great! I can tell when my body begins craving the afternoon meditation and I’ve noticed amazing shifts in my being - this practice has changed other areas of my life in profound ways and I am eternally grateful. I remember hitting the two month mark of meditation back in February and feeling great, and thinking, “I wonder what it will feel like to keep this up for 6 months.” And as sure as I was then, it feels amazing! After years of struggle and coercing myself to meditate, I am now a daily meditator, and it feels divine!
