Why should I meditate?
Meditation is one of the most powerful tools there is to help us restore the harmony within and to gain access to our bodies’ inner intelligence.
In meditation, we rediscover the silence in our mind and make it part of our life. Silence is the birthplace of happiness. It is where we get our bursts of inspiration, our tender feelings of compassion, our sense of love. Meditation is a journey to freedom and self-knowledge.
What is Primordial Sound Meditation?
The Primordial Sound Meditation technique originates from the ancient knowledge of India.

What are the benefits of meditation?
During Primordial Sound Meditation our minds become quiet allowing our bodies to gain the deep rest necessary to release stress and fatigue.
In meditation, we re-connect with our essence. This connection extends into our daily lives and can result in improved health, more fulfilling relationships, enthusiasm for life and increased creativity.
What are “Primordial Sounds?”
Primordial Sounds are the basic, most essential sounds of nature. The specific Primordial Sounds which are used in meditation are mantras. These mantras are personal for each participant. They are chosen on the basis of Vedic mathematics which determines a specific sound or vibration of the Universe at the time and place of our birth. When we silently repeat Primordial Sounds as part of the mantra, they help to take our awareness away from the frenzy of daily activity of the mind to the stillness of our spirit. The effect soothes our entire physiology mind, body and soul.
