Light Watkins – Vedic meditation teacher

Raise your hand if you have meditated with success. Ah, a lot of hands dropped. OK.

Let’s just be honest. Meditation has a huge image problem and I’ve been in the meditation space for about 15 years, starting off as a practitioner and then I apprenticed my teacher, my meditation master for many years. And for the last eight years, I have been traveling around the world to different cities, teaching people from all walks of life the basic mechanics, the physiology and the biology of meditation.

And the general consensus is my life would definitely be better if I meditated but it’s too hard, I can’t quiet my mind, I can’t sit still long enough, I don’t have the time.

So I want to shed some light onto what I feel are the five most common meditation myths in our society. And I want to give you guys some tips that will help make your meditation practice instantly more enjoyable. And I want to show you how you can use meditation to literally create more time, to be more productive, and of course, to change the world.
