Advanced Rounding Workshop

“Rounding” is a powerful technique that incorporates a particular sequence of gentle yoga stretches, pranayamic breath work, Vedic Meditation, and horizontal rest. The sequential unfolding of an hour-long “round” allows for a much deeper level of rest than meditation alone and the process of round-after-round or “rounding” facilitates an industrial strength level of stress release in the meditator.

The workshop will incorporate careful instruction of the technique, discussion, and the experience of a three-hour rounding session in a group setting. Participants can expect a reset for their nervous system and the effects of a mini-retreat: deep rest, renewal, stress-release, clarity and peace-of-mind. Prior training in Vedic Meditation is a pre-requisite (including participants on the course March 16 - 19), though no experience with yoga or pranayama is necessary.

After a year (or more) of consistent twice-a-day practice of Vedic Meditation, an Advanced Technique is designed to deepen one's experience of unity both in the practice itself as well as in waking life. The integration of "ritam" (that subtle, charming and deep stratum of consciousness experienced before transcendence) with layers of thinking and action is strengthened through the practice of an Advanced Technique. Sensory acuity is refined in order to saturate one's awareness with a baseline of supreme equanimity while engaged in the demands of life's activities. Two sessions are required to become proficient in this technique (the first of which needs to be on a day when beginners receive their initial technique) and a course fee consistent with your original offering is our guideline.

Advanced Courses include philosophy, wisdom, and special techniques derived from the Vedic Worldview and recorded by Thom Knoles. Courses are typically listened to and discussed by Vedic Meditators in a group setting as facilitated by a Vedic Meditation teacher.
