Student Insights


"I've been meditating with Rajan for nearly a year. I was already somewhat experienced but practicing with Raj has been a whole other level..or two, or three. 

In my case, the training has given me tangible and significant improvement in focus, energy levels and willpower. " Paul, Chicago
