The Chopra Center’s Signature Meditation Method: Primordial Sound Meditation

Discover the Natural, Effortless Meditation Style You’ll WANT to Make a Daily Practice.

Ancient.   Authentic.   Comprehensive.   Proven.   Guaranteed.

​​​​​

Practiced for thousands of years, meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body’s own inner intelligence. 

Thanks to growing scientific evidence that meditation has measurable health benefits and can even alter the structure of the brain, along with a host of highly successful types who swear by it (like Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Rupert Murdoch and more)…

These days, it’s pretty hard to ignore that meditation makes life better in some very meaningful ways –from disease and pain management to better sleep, control of emotions, and stress relief.

But its most important (and sometimes overlooked) benefit is perhaps the rare and precious opportunity meditation affords us in the midst of our busy, noisy, and often chaotic lives – to practice silence and self-reflection as a means to knowing ourselves better.

In fact, it’s the surest and simplest pathway we can use to discover our fundamental nature, purpose, and essence . . . and gain a deeper grasp on who we are and why we’re here.

Why then, aren’t we all practicing meditation daily?

The trouble is we’re a time-starved, impatient culture with overactive minds. So even if we do sit down to try meditation, we often find ourselves questioning what type of meditation to use, whether we’re doing it long enough, and if we are doing it correctly.

Next thing we know, we can end up stressed out about the very thing that’s supposed to provide us with stress relief.

But what if there was a simple and effective meditation practice anyone could use to go beyond the mental prison of doubt, anxiety, and judgement we’re accustomed to – and gain access to an inner sanctuary of quiet, centered awareness.

(There is.)

In fact, world-renowned expert on mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, his long time partner and co-founder of The Chopra Center, David Simon, MD, and his long-time friend and expert meditation instructor, Roger Gabriel, have teamed up to rediscover The Chopra Center’s Signature Primordial Sound Meditation Course and bring it into the 21st century.  This powerful, 6-session course will help you discover a natural, effortless style of meditation that you can easily integrate into your busy life and actually enjoy!

After teaching people from all over the world to successfully meditate, it’s become clear that the simpler and more natural the meditation style is, the more successfully it fits within a modern lifestyle.

The meditations that work best, that feel easy, and that leave you feeling peaceful are the ones that make you want to keep going.

That’s why in The Chopra Center’s Signature Primordial Sound Meditation Course, I will reveal simple-to-master tools and techniques to help you create an enjoyable daily meditation practice that fits into your life and schedule – so you’ll want to sustain it for years to come.

And you’ll receive expert guidance so you start experiencing its benefits sooner instead of worrying and wondering if you’re doing it right.

Here’s how it works . . . during The Chopra Center’s Signature Primordial Sound Meditation Course, you’ll discover how to:

  • Give up straining to concentrate or willing yourself to empty your mind – and relax into the natural flow of a simple and effective meditation process.
  • Know exactly what it means when thoughts intrude on your meditation practice – and how to instantly come back to center.
  • Create a new and truer expectation around meditation that frees you to practice it more successfully – and enjoy it too!
  • Establish (or deepen) a meditation practice that feels like a natural way of living – and use it as a powerful pathway to self-awareness and ultimately to living a more meaningful, satisfying, and joyful life.


What Are the Benefits of Meditation?


As many studies show, a regular meditation practice offers numerous health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, strengthening the immune system, and releasing stress and fatigue. In fact, meditating for half an hour provides more psychological rest than a full night's sleep. As you meditate on a regular basis, you will notice an increased sense of well-being as well as greater energy and creativity.

Today doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major contributing factor to most illnesses. Even though meditation should not be considered a cure by itself, research has shown it to be beneficial for a wide range of health problems. As stress is greatly eliminated through Primordial Sound Meditation, our minds and bodies begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health, vitality, and happiness.

Practicing Primordial Sound Meditation on a daily basis can help you to:

  • Manage stress
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve your relationships
  • Create inner peace
  • Awaken your intuition
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Become less judgmental
  • Connect to spirit
  • Enhance your sleep patterns


What is The Chopra Center’s Signature Primordial Sound Meditation method?


Primordial Sound Meditation, or PSM, is a healing practice that allows us to experience inner calm and deep relaxation. For thousands of years, people have used meditation to move beyond the mind's busy activity and emotional turbulence into profound peace and expanded awareness.  Primordial Sound Meditation uses individually selected sounds of nature called mantras to disconnect us from the activity of life. These primordial sounds are based on the vibration the universe was creating at the moment of your birth.

In the age of digital devices, social media, and busy schedules, the restful awareness we experience during meditation is more valuable than ever. The term "restful awareness" captures the unique combination of physical relaxation and an alert yet quiet mind. The pace of life has accelerated, and every day we are bombarded with more information and stimulation than our ancestors encountered during entire lifetimes. Not surprisingly, the number of people suffering from stress, anxiety, insomnia, and chronic health problems is on the rise—and many are searching for peace of mind.

The most direct way to experience inner silence and well-being is meditation, a tool to rediscover the body's own inner intelligence. As scientific research reveals, when you meditate, your breathing slows, blood pressure decreases, and stress hormone levels fall.

Primordial Sound Meditation isn’t about forcing your mind to be quiet, it’s about experiencing the silence that's already there and making it a part of your life. Silence is the birthplace of happiness, creativity, and infinite possibilities. From this field of pure potentiality we get our bursts of inspiration, our most intuitive thoughts, and our deepest sense of connection to the Universe. Practicing meditation on a daily basis allows you to weave silence and stillness into your mind and body to create a life of greater compassion and fulfillment. Even when your mind is filled with agitated thoughts, you still have access to the inner stillness and calm that always lies beneath the choppy surface of thought and emotion.

There are many different ways to meditate. At Chopra Center Certified Instruction, we offer instruction in Primordial Sound Meditation, a powerful meditation technique rooted in the Vedic tradition of India. Chopra Center co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon have revived this ancient practice of sound meditation and made it available in a comprehensive format that’s easy to learn.

When you learn Primordial Sound Meditation, you will receive a personal mantra. A mantra is a specific sound or vibration—which when repeated silently—helps you to enter deeper levels of awareness. A Sanskrit term that translates as "vehicle of the mind," a mantra truly is a vehicle that takes you into quieter, more peaceful levels of the mind.

The mantra you will receive is the vibration the universe was creating at the time and place of your birth, and it is calculated following Vedic mathematic formulas. When you silently repeat your mantra in meditation, it creates a vibration that helps you slip into the space between your thoughts, into the complete silence that is sometimes referred to as "the gap." Your mind is no longer caught up in its noisy internal chatter and is instead exposed to its own deepest nature: pure awareness.
