Everything needs to pass the “so what” test.  This means it needs to be relevant to our lives.  This is the modern place of meditation, as something actionable and practical, not mystical and especially not difficult.  In fact, the easier and simpler meditation is, the more effective.  We are taught that nothing worthwhile should be simple and easy, but meditation is a natural process that the mind loves, and what is most natural will operate seamlessly.  

This group is dedicated to the growth of the Vedic meditation community in Portland.  This is an ancient technique with endless modern applications, restoring our energy, intelligence and well-being to take on this circus we call a world.  We teach the technique, gather practicing meditators for talks, and write and speak about the possibilities of life with meditation.  Looking forward to meeting you all and hearing about what has brought you here.
