Are you new to meditation or wish to further your meditative practice? Do you want to learn to quickly calm your body and clear your mind? Do you seek restful sleep? Do you desire enhanced health and enriched relationships?
Leave the chaos and clutter of daily life behind and slip into the tranquil, restorative space of Meditation. This program was carefully designed to give you the support and guidance you need to create a daily practice that will benefit you for the rest of your life.
Meditation is a simple yet powerful tool that will take you to a state of profound relaxation, dissolve fatigue and accumulated stress, and renew your creativity and passion for life. By its very nature, meditation calms the mind, and when the mind is in a state of restful awareness, the body relaxes, too.
Primordial Sound Meditation offers you a unique opportunity to step away from life’s demands and into the power of meditation. Numerous studies have shown that regular meditation practice can improve your mental and physical health including:
"Meditation Weekend was my first meditation experience and I can honestly say that it has been a blessing and has changed my life forever. The positive energy was simply awe inspiring." -Elizabeth

Primordial Sounds and Mantras
At The Green Lotus Center we offer instruction in Primordial Sound Meditation, a powerful meditation technique rooted in the Vedic tradition of India. Chopra Center co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon have revived this ancient practice of sound meditation and made it available in a format that is easy to learn.
When you learn Primordial Sound Meditation, you will receive a personal mantra. A mantra is a specific sound or vibration, which when repeated silently, helps you to enter deeper levels of awareness. A Sanskrit term that translates as "vehicle of the mind", a mantra truly is a vehicle that takes you into quieter, more peaceful levels of the mind.
The mantra you will receive is the vibration the universe was creating at the time and place of your birth, and it is calculated following Vedic mathematic formulas. When you silently repeat your mantra in meditation, it creates a vibration that helps you slip into the space between your thoughts, into the complete silence that is sometimes referred to as "the gap". Your mind is no longer caught up in its noisy internal chatter and is instead exposed to its own deepest nature: pure awareness.
As many studies show, a regular meditation practice offers numerous health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, strengthening the immune system, and releasing stress and fatigue. In fact, meditating for half an hour provides more psychological rest than a full night's sleep. As you meditate on a regular basis, you will notice an increased sense of well-being as well as greater energy and creativity.
