Questions and answers

No, the lecture is an independent event with a compact and interesting content. You will receive a lot of information about meditation and it doesn’t matter if you later decide to attend a meditation course or not. There will be no pressure or sales tricks. The lecture is free and not even voluntary entry fee is collected. However, we recommend that those interested in meditation visit this lecture first.
No, during the course we sit comfortably in chairs, there is no need for any special clothing. You can come directly from work in a suit.
No. Instead of sharing your life story you will be receiving information. And there really is no touching of others involved. It is not a therapy, but a course full of interesting information.
No problem, you can cancel your aplication but please let us know you are not coming. It will help us organise the event. Thank you.
It is not. You can absorb the information and learn the technique even without notes. However, if you like to write, there is no problem with making notes.
Mostly, there is a small group, up to 20 people. Teacher devotes enough time to each in the group and everyone has space to ask, publicly or privately.
No, the course is intended for people who live modern lives and Vedic Meditation is not a religion. It can be practiced by atheists or people of all religions. Only on the first day, due to respect to the Indian tradition, which this technique comes from, a puja ceremony takes place as a way to give thanks to past teachers. This is the only moment of the whole course that resembles any ceremony. It only takes several minutes, when thanks are given to the tradition of teachers in Sanskrit and flowers and several other things are given to them symbolically.

What do other participants say?

I have problems with resting and that is the main reason I went to Tim’s lessons. Since finishing the course I meditate twice a day and my rest has changed. I have become calmer and view things in a different light. I am also no longer fatigued by sleep deficiency as the meditation really replaced it. Tim has the ability to share a certain gift of serenity, tolerance, inner peace and joy and that’s what I want to learn and develop further by meditating. I am very curious about the development in time after a year, five etc.

The main benefits of meditation for me are: calmer mind, when I am under stress, relaxation, better ability to experience the present moment, better balance (negative things affect me much less), more balanced approach to food and a more harmonious relationship with my choleric husband. As a fresh mother I meditate when I am breast-feeding and this way I recharge my batteries so that I am not tired and am able to fully attend to my daughter.

Regular meditation has certainly given me a lot of positive effects. Among others I have become calmer, more resilient towards stress, my concentration has improved as well as my immunity and I am more able to stay on the top of things.

I would describe myself as an analytic, conservative person. Moreover I am very skeptical and tend to expect negative things in life. Like the majority of employed mothers I am constantly under stress due to a lack of time in the constant cycle of work-school-children’s groups-household. Therefore I approached meditation with skepticism at first. But I soon realized that my life has really changed for the better. Since I started meditating I need much less sleep and despite that I feel rested and full of energy. I also have the feeling that I became a little calmer overall and deal much better with stressful situations, which the life brings each day. Meditation for me is a moment for myself in a busy day, where I become calm and listen to myself.
