Exploring the Veda

The Veda is the ancient record of spiritual experience that is the source of the arts and sciences of Ayurvedic medicine, yoga, meditation, and the whole of Indian philosophy. Knowledge of the Veda is said to confer mastery of all the laws of nature, because the Veda is structured as universal knowledge available within everyone’s consciousness – it is the blueprint of creation.

Thom Knoles is recognized as one of the world’s foremost teachers of the Veda’s true meaning and application. In a six-seminar course of 78 hours recorded over a 2 year period, Thom delves deeply into the Veda and draws out pearls of wisdom that are nothing short of life-changing. Students of Exploring the Veda learn techniques for deepening meditation, for correcting the mistakes of the mind and heart, and for manifesting the life experiences that reveal true fulfillment.



This course is made up of 6 classes, and the classes must be taken in order.  The classes are held on evenings and weekends in six 10 – 16 hour seminars, usually Friday evening, and Saturday and Sunday during the day.  They are conducted in a “semi-retreat” format, which means that students come together with an Initiator serving as the teacher and facilitator, listen to the lectures, then have a Q&A session with the class members and the Initiator/Teacher.  Each course includes healthy vegetarian meals.

This course starts several times throughout the year, in various locations, with the classes offered in order (we call this a “track”).  Students are strongly encouraged to start a “track” and take all classes in order, but if you must skip a class due to scheduling requirements, you can most likely make up the class by sitting in on another Teacher’s “track”.   Your commitment would not be to the entire series, rather to each individual seminar. The basis for moving to the next level is contingent on feeling naturally inspired to do so.


In order to participate in Exploring the Veda you must have taken Introduction to Meditation and be actively practicing meditation.

Course Fee

Each class is $600.  Payment for each course must be received at least 2 days prior to commencement of the class, and payment can be made with cash, check or a major credit card.


These classes are offered at various times around the world by Meditation Initiators.
