What Is Meditation?
Meditation is a simple, natural, and effortless technique for achieving a state of deep relaxation while the mind remains alert. It is not about religion, philosophy, or contemplation. It is a reaction in the nervous system where, among other things, metabolism drops significantly and brain wave activity slows to the alpha state. Regular meditation has a cumulative effect and improves overall performance and well-being.

Who Can Meditate?
Adults, teenagers, and children can all learn to meditate. Meditation can benefit anyone interested in improving competence, happiness and quality of life.

Why Meditate?
Those who meditate on a regular basis report that many areas of their lives have improved. As well, science has demonstrated that meditation produces a great many benefits. Some of the areas in which gains are reported are:

Stress management -- Self-esteem -- Job performance -- Interpersonal relations -- Resistance to disease -- Creativity -- Academic performance -- Athletic performance -- Learning ability -- Cardiovascular efficiency -- Emotional stability -- Metabolic stability -- Nervous system efficiency -- Perceptual ability -- Sociability

Regular meditators also report decreases in the use of alcohol, cigarettes, and non-prescription drugs, as well as decreases in excessive weight, high blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety, and depression.


Group Programs

  • A group program involves three, two-hour sessions (total 6 hours), spaced a week apart.
  • A group ranges in size from five to nine participants.
  • Participants will learn:
    • What Meditation is
    • What the benefits of Meditation can be
    • How to meditate using a variety of methods
    • Some principles of stress management
    • How the subconscious mind works
    • Goal setting and goal achieving
    • How to develop and use affirmations and visualization

  • Cost is $150 per participant.
  • Currently, I am not planning any group programs, but if a group (five to nine individuals) would like to learn to meditate, I would do my best to find a mutually convenient time to provide such a program. Just contact me and I'm sure we can work something out.

Individual Programs

On a few occasions, I found that individuals seeking hypnotherapy sessions were better able to make progress by learning to meditate. In these cases, they learned to meditate in two sessions. The first took about an hour and a half and the second was approximately an hour, about a week afterwards. These two sessions totalled two and a half hours and I charged $100 per hour. This service is available to those who would like a private one-on-one program for learning to meditate.

Sometimes, more than one but less than five individuals are looking for a course, so for two, hour and a half sessions (total 3 hours), here's how that works:

  • For two people, $250 each.
  • For three people, $200 each.
  • For four people, $175 each.

Student Testimonials

"I have noticed that I can stay calm more often in stressful situations. I am also getting a 90% in Math and I attribute this to meditation because, in my entire life, the highest mark that I had ever received in Math was 60%."
Alicia Browne, High School Student

I had suffered from insomnia for so many years that I would say it was a chronic condition for me. After Peter's meditation course, I was able to put myself to sleep in less than a minute of meditation. It feels like it has been a life saver.

Practical, 'hands-on'. Extremely enjoyable. The only course I've really looked forward to attending in a long time. Thank you!

I am now calmer and do not react to negative stimuli as quickly, e.g. traffic, noise, children. My thinking is clearer when planning and dealing with objectives. I also have fewer cravings for sweets and snacks when under stress.
Marc Ruest, Human Resources Professional

This has definitely influenced my life and I very much want to have it as a part of my life. I have found that it is going to help me in areas that I had not anticipated, e.g. to let go and to not always try to control. The course was very well executed, in a relaxed manner.
