Meditation for Modern Life
Have you been fascinated by meditation but don’t think you can do it? Maybe you’ve tried meditating but couldn’t stop your thoughts? Download that app and never use it?
Do you want to feel better?
You’ve come to the right place.
We’re Michael Miller and Jillian Lavender, founders of New York Meditation Center. We’ll teach you Vedic Meditation in a way that fits with your busy life.
We’re experienced (we’ve taught thousands of people and have been meditating for decades). We’re all about practical (you’re not going to get lots of ooby-gooby). And we’re normal (we’re parents and we’ve worked real jobs.)
How to Learn
An hour-long session.
Four sessions over four days.
You’re meditating the very first day.
Changes happen right away.
More productive and less anxious
“Overall, I am more productive in both my home and work life. I feel more in control rather than constantly worried.”
—Peter, President of Global Sales
Stress levels down
“I feel noticeably calmer and have more focus. I’ve told all my friends about meditation and will continue to do so.”
—Tina, Project Manager
Authentic and expert teachers
Jillian and Michael both have a warm, genuine humility and an unwavering authenticity, combined with their expertise and mastery of this beautiful practice.
“Meditation worked immediately for me, after the 4-day course I felt already less anxious.”
—Pauline, Finance Assistant
No more insomnia
“My insomnia is cured: I sleep well and I feel calmer and happier than before.”
—James, Novelist and Academic
Meditation changed my life
“I have no doubt I would be on anti-depressants and spending a fortune on therapy had I not discovered this technique.”
“I thought Jillian and Michael were both brilliant. Approachable, welcoming, passionate and down-to-earth.”
—Katia, Former CEO and mother of two
“The group sessions are a fantastic way to keep inspired and to meet others who have discovered the wonders of daily meditation.”

Better than an app
“This has been so much more interesting than listening to Headspace or similar audio apps. I can’t recommend these guys highly enough!”
Once you’ve learned Vedic Meditation from us (or anyone else!) you get lots of free support. There are plenty of ways to stay connected and go further.
Notes on Meditation
Some little nuggets of wisdom and inspiration.
Enlightenment is not based on a mood. Enlightenment is not based on a belief.
Enlightenment is based on direct experience.
Step Beyond Thought
To be able to step beyond thinking and arrive at the source of thought is the greatest skill. A reservoir of intelligence, bliss and energy awaits.
Expectation and Misery
When a preference becomes an expectation then rigid attachment has crept in and misery will follow closely.
The Self Revealed
“The Self reveals its essence only to him who applies himself to the Self” – Katha Upanishad
Blueprint of Creation
Intelligence is that which gives direction to change.
Meditation connects you to the underlying creative intelligence that is the blueprint of all creation.
