Don’t get so busy making a living,
Vedic meditation is the easiest and most effective form of meditation there is. It can be practised anywhere, anytime, and the twice daily recommended practice can be easily accommodated into the day.
As I have continued with my practice, I have seen remarkable changes and results in myself, as well as those I have taught.
There is more to life than simply ticking off the boxes – career tick, marriage, tick, children tick, house tick etc. And oftentimes, even when we have ticked some or all of the boxes, the sense of fulfillment or happiness seems to only last a moment. The reason for this is simple – we are looking outside for something that only can only be found within.
There is a place within each of us that is pure being – the place that is the source of all creativity, all love, the source of life itself, and we contact this place through daily meditation. The deep and profound rest experienced with meditation enables the body to release the stresses it has accumulated over the years, letting go of old habits and hardwired attitudes, and freeing and recharging the body and mind to perform with effortlessness and ease.
When we experience happiness within, everything changes. We become more available to life, to the moment, enjoying what is right in front of us, right here right now.
With regular meditation practice, we are essentially filling ourselves each day with adaptation energy that gives us the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at us, without getting stressed and overwhelmed and without being triggered into the fight or flight response that cause stress.
Meditation has become mainstream as more and more people turn to meditation than ever before, as a tool to assist them in dealing with the demands of modern day living. When instructed properly, meditation becomes a way of life.
I run both private and group courses at Balmain and Paddington, more details can be found here. I also conduct corporate meditation and wellness workshops and have worked with companies such as:
As a medical practitioner, I am always looking for new evidence-based pathways to a better state of being. I believe Vedic meditation is one of those pathways.Dr Andrew WilsonPractising Psychiatrist and Group Executive at Medibank
I was referred to Kimberley by a colleague, and I can honestly say she was a tremendous, very down to earth teacher to bring Vedic meditation into my life.
The Vedic meditation practice requires commitment, but also brings a degree of excitement that change is possible.
Kimberley helped me achieve that change and I am very grateful for the experience.
It has taken me a long time to learn and now that I've been meditating for about 3 months, I wished I'd learned sooner.Amy CohenGeneral Manager
I feel clearer when I meditate. It has helped me to enjoy the present and helped me to focus
on the meaningful things in life.
Pressing the reset button.Stuart CoxSenior Physiotherapist
That's what I call it when I describe to people the effects of a proper Pilates session.
While that is my physical reset, my mind finds the same effect with meditation since training with Kimberley.
I can start again with clarity and without the pent up emotion and frustration. It has become a priority which helps all other parts of my day, from when to have my coffee to how hard I can push myself physically. As a teacher, Kim is warm, patient and methodical. She has a naturally gentle nature, respects everyone's differences and doesn't shy away from the tough questions we all have when scratching beneath the surfaces.
Kimberley brings a priceless authenticity to her practice of meditation and teaching.Georgie MulcahyExercise Physiologist
I was welcomed into a safe space to learn to meditate, and Kimberley was able to put me at ease with her own real world experiences, tips to overcome the barriers to practising meditation, and reassuring me that there is no such thing as good or bad in meditation. Meditating daily reminds me to stop and prioritise myself.
Why do I meditate? Because my children tell me to.Julie ReedMum of 5 and small business owner and operator
One afternoon, having missed my meditation, I was rushing around the house like a headless chook when my second son Joseph piped up and said
"Mummy, you should go meditate now." And that's when it hit me. Kimberley had told me that meditation is not just for me,
it's also for my family and everyone who deals with me. I feel better and happier. And obviously, my kids think so too.
I am the opposite of still. In fact, until I meditated for the first time with Kimberley,Serena SaltzmanHead of Marketing
I cannot recall sitting down and being still for any period of time, let alone 20 minutes, twice a day.
And that's what I find myself doing now. And it works, I feel calm and centred and happy after meditating.
I learned because I had been reading about the growing benefits of meditation.Dr Ben GibsonGP
And as a medical practitioner, I felt it was important for me to have experienced meditation myself in order to speak to my patients about it.
I learned almost 6 months ago, and to my great surprise and delight, I still meditate, at least once a day.
It has given me a sense of stillness and calm I had not felt before, and I feel refreshed
Mum wanted me to learn to meditate and I agreed to meet Kimberley for a chat over coffee. We had a good chat and I decided to learn.Lucie McIntoshUniversity Student
It was pretty painless, and easy. I meditate once a day. When I finish meditating, I feel a sense of calm comes over me and everything just feels right.
It's pretty simple and I think everyone should give it a go.
