“Before studying with Gary I could barely slow down and focus enough to write a single sentence. I think you’ll find this quote contains two, which is a testament to his excellent technique.”

Hamish Blake

“Soma was the perfect balance of learning, escaping and relaxing. I couldn’t think of a more beautiful space to learn Vedic Meditation and I consider myself so lucky to have been able to experience it and to learn from Gary, who is amazing at what he does.”

Lucy G.

“This meditation has been the gateway and balance of my soul. Gary is a amazing guide to balance and success.”

Stephen Dupont

I finished a Yoga Teacher training in 2008, but wasn’t able to meditate, because I wasn’t ticking the boxes required for meditation. I’ve tried different techniques for meditation, but it was an on/off love affair with my mind/thoughts. Gary’s talks and explanations about meditation and the human mind were incredible – the rules for VM are simple and approachable. I liked the practicability of the technique.

The retreat was awesome. I’ve felt home, sort of. It was a magical weekend and I would like to continue my journey and implement other courses at SOMA.
