James Brown is the Bay Area’s foremost teacher of the ancient practice of Vedic Meditation. After completing a rigorous, a two-year training program of over 2000 hours of instruction under legendary master Maharishi Vyasananda Thom Knoles, including a 4-month intensive retreat high in the Himalayas, James returned to found Vedic Path Meditation in San Francisco. He has taught thousands of busy people from all walks of life to meditate, and has led courses and workshops in companies across the country, including some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative firms. He lives in The Presidio with his wife, two young sons and (according to his wife) way too many bicycles.
“James is a great teacher, a skillful communicator, and a voice of wisdom. His instruction is simple and clear, and after going through his four-session class I felt entirely able to continue the meditation journey on my own. I particularly liked the fact that his approach is jargon-free and unencumbered with religious belief or dogma: it’s just meditation, pure and simple. It’s been a great addition to my life. Thanks, James!” Kirk Citron, Writer and Creative Director
