A former attorney and fitness professional, Ben Turshen is a master teacher of Vedic Meditation, a Breathwork practitioner, and a Personal Coach. Ben’s mission is provide his students with the highest quality instruction and support in tools that promote immediate, profound and sustainable personal growth and development.
Access Meditation consists of two powerful tools that can be used together or separately. We take both a “bottoms up” approach (body influencing the mind) through the breath and a “top down” approach (mind influencing the body) through meditation. Like both Vedic Meditation and Transcendental Meditation, Access Stillness is form of automatic self-transcending meditation, where the meditator sits comfortably with their back supported and eyes closed and silently experiences a particular sound, a mantra, that settles mind and puts the body into a deep state of rest automatically and spontaneously without any effort, focus, or concentration.
Vedic Meditation is a simple effortless mental technique requiring no focus, concentration or paying attention. With Vedic Meditation, your mind settles down automatically, and your body achieves levels of rest exponentially greater than can be achieved during a night’s sleep. This makes it easy and enjoyable. Absolutely anyone can learn Vedic Meditation with correct instruction, even those who think their minds are too busy/active to meditate. This is the best daily practice to have to reduce stress and improve health and well-being. It allows you to feel more calm and relaxed, rested and energized, present, attentive and creative every day.
Breathwork corrects dysfunctional breathing mechanics and patterns that would otherwise have a profound negative effect on our health and make us feel stressed. Breath is essential to life and correct breathing is essential for optimal health and wellbeing. Breathwork also removes emotional blocks, fear and limiting beliefs by gently facilitating emotional release. These powerful guided sessions can change you default emotional settings, relieve depression and anxiety, aid recovery from addiction, reconnect you to your intuition, help you access greater creativity and open your heart to greater gratitude and self-love.
Personal Coaching sessions provide you with the specific guidance and strategies to consciously identify and create the change required for you to have the most fulfilling life experience. We examine Career, Relationships, Health/Wellness/Spirituality, and Recreation and design the specific shifts that will yield greater happiness.
