"For me, meditation is the most important thing I’ve ever done. I was suffering badly from stress induced insomnia, after burning the candle at the both ends, and it helped me when nothing else could. Now, I want to share what I’ve learned to help everybody live a healthier, happier life with a few simple tools."
"I found the beginners course absolutely perfect even though I had done some meditation before; but it would have been equally suitable for someone with absolutely no experience. The whole approach to Beeja meditation at Will Williams is profoundly respectful to the tradition from whence it comes, but without requiring (or even asking for) belief in anything. I felt the personal instruction was tailored to me as an individual and was not just recited from a script. The two group sessions were very enjoyable and informative. Everyone was encouraged to share their experiences and comments but nobody was pounced on or made uncomfortable in any way. In short, I have found what I have been looking for."
"I have found my memory has definitely improved, especially my memory of what I have read which is good news because I found that quite challenging at university. I also remember conversations more vividly. My mind seems to be focussing on the relevant things rather than the distractions it sometimes gets caught up in. What is most encouraging is that I feel that each day that passes I am getting more and more in tune with myself and that I am becoming a more whole self-actualised person."
"I really had no idea that it would make such an impact on me. I came into work this morning and I feel like a totally different person. About 5 people have come up to me today to ask me if I'd been on holiday as I look like I am glowing (apparently!). How freaky is that?! I woke up at 6.30am this morning to do my first meditation of the day. I NEVER wake up at 6.30am for anything other than skiing. Came into work this morning (I was early for the first time in 7 years) feeling happy and positive. This is so far away from how I have been feeling for the last 4 months, that I hardly recognise myself. Thank you both so much from the bottom of my heart. Feeling slightly emotional as I write this as I didn't realise how much I needed it."
"I read Will's website and how meditation could help with anxiety and depression, and the thought came, what have I got to lose? If it doesn't work, at least I'd tried. So I signed up to Will's weekend course in London in November 2013, not knowing what to expect, and not necessarily expecting very much at all. Jess (Will's Girlfriend) met me at the entrance to the venue where they were teaching and I can truly say I've never met anyone as sincere and caring as her. She was so welcoming, and she really put me at ease. I then met Will and he was so understanding and I felt so much reassurance. I explained to him my situation and he said he could help. He seemed really confident and really caring. Over the course of the weekend I, along with a small group of lovely individuals, were taught how to meditate and given our own unique mantra by Will. I genuinely feel something profound and beautiful bubbling up within me each day, each moment. Now I'm happier then I can ever remember, and now I feel like I even have the energy and resources to help others wherever I can. Without Will, Jess and the team I don't know where I'd be now. I believe that you meet people in life for a reason, and I feel so lucky to have encountered them."
"It's been an amazing week. I have meditated twice a day, yesterday I was in the park. My senses feel heightened, I have had a visual feast watching my favourite Kubrick movies. I feel more confident. My brain has done some amazing healing."
"Beeja meditation has changed my life. It has given me a wonderfully positive outlook on everything. I have become even more obsessed with nature. I now pick and choose my battles (if any!), am more calm and I need less sleep."
"Meditation facilitates deep physical and mental relaxation and leaves me feeling rested and more connected to the deeper strands of the world around me. In everyday life I am much calmer and when stress does arise I can deal with it better."
