Aham Brahmasmi, I am spirit, not matter, I am not the body, I am not the mind, I am an eternal spirit soul, an eternal spark of the Supreme Soul, I am only temporarily in a material body

Discover Meditation

The wisdom of the yoga texts teach that our actual identity is that we are eternal spirit souls, part and parcel of the Supreme Soul. Meditation helps purify our consciousness so we come to understand our real spiritual identity.


Whether you are a student, a taxi driver or a busy mum, meditation will help you to deal with life’s challenges in a positive way. Meditation can lower your levels of stress and therefore have a positive effect on your body and mind.

But the benefits of meditation go much deeper than relieving stress. Through the practice of meditation a person can overcome anxiety and depression and experience an actual inner spiritual fulfilment or happiness. The secret to gaining the benefits is to practice it regularly. By starting your day with 15 minutes of meditation, you will find that your whole day flows more smoothly.

The timeless art of meditation has been practiced by saints and sages since ancient times to bring about the joyful state of self-realisation. In this consciousness a person is free from temporary worries, anxieties and concerns and is immersed in a higher spiritual happiness and inner peacefulness.


Kirtan is the singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Rather than being a type of performance, Kirtan is a journey of self discovery.

This ancient yogic practice was traditionally accompanied with Indian instruments. In the hands and voices of contemporary practitioners, Kirtan has been transported beautifully to all cultural and musical styles without losing its genuine spiritual authenticity.

Weaving together melody, music and mantra with people responding to the words of the singer, clapping, swaying and sometimes dancing, Kirtan is simultaneously a meditative, exhilarating and fun activity. It is the most powerful and enjoyable form of meditation. By meditating on these sacred sounds we reach a state far beyond the stress and worries of life.

Find Inner Peace With Meditation

At that time, for a number of reasons, I was stressed out, anxious and depressed. I was being treated for PTSD, and my therapist kept suggesting relaxation techniques and deep breathing. Following his advice, I decided to try ASMY’s “Deep Peace” sessions. I made a commitment to practicing it regularly for two months and then to evaluate my progress. Almost immediately I felt better. With regular practice, I was much more able to self-regulate in overwhelming moments. Now, I can’t imagine a life without meditation practice.
