To "transcend" means to go beyond. Go beyond what? Thoughts, ego, intellect, and the 5 senses. We move from thinking to simply Being. It is a lifetime process that clears limiting beliefs and allows us to effortlessly step into our full potential. 

Patrick has been practicing Vedic Meditation for nearly a decade. He is a firm believer that meditation is simply an ingredient when it comes to healing. Patrick continually strives to restore balance in his life while lending his experience, knowledge, and love to help others do the same.

 

In partnership with the University of Pennsylvania, Patrick integrates his offerings at a psychiatric and mental health hospital serving children, adolescents, and adults in the greater Philadelphia region.

Meditation is using the mind, body, or breath, to deliberately alter your state of consciousness. Patrick models his approach after his mentor, Charlie Knoles, director of The Veda Center. Our methodology stems back to the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who is well known for bringing Vedic Meditation to the West in the 1960s and for teaching The Beatles how to meditate. 

On its most fundamental level, The Veda Center organizes meditation into 4 categories: Present Moment Awareness, Calm Focus, Energized Body + Mind, and Self Discovery. Honoring an interdisciplinary model, we acknowledge an array of techniques that aid us on our journey towards transcendence.
