The workshop will teach an unique technique called Neuro-EpiGenetic Scientific Meditation (NESM)™ , which is an easy-to-practice and effective integrated scientific meditation technique developed by Banani Ray and Dr. Amit Ray that was evolved from their long experience in meditation practices as well as meditation teaching.

The technique combines time-tested ancient techniques along with modern science-backed practices that are proven for developing grey matter in the brain, improving focus, concentration and memory, and resist the shortening of telomeres in your gene which enhances health and longevity.

This workshop will also explore the essentials of scientific meditation for health, mind power and greater workplace efficiency. The workshop is non-denominational and focuses on meditation as a technique for physical and mental health, stress-relief, increased productivity, greater clarity and personal development, rather than a religious practice. The ultimate aim of the Institute is to promote meditation as a scientific discipline and make it accessible to all irrespective of belief, faith, religion or organization.

What is Scientific Meditation?

Scientific Meditation is meditation technique that is based on scientific experiments, studies, research, data and analysis. Scientific Meditation is meditation beyond boundary-- Meditation beyond religion and rituals. Scientific meditation is meditation beyond race, cult, philosophical doctrines, or beliefs. Scientific meditation is exploration and enhancement of your inner potentials and connecting with the wellspring of peace and wellbeing within you through techniques- ancient and modern, which are backed by scientific studies and research. Scientific meditation is empowering, because it helps you to know yourself better and enhance your potentials, health and efficiency, without the need for surrender or submission to any outside authority, without giving away your power to some outside authority.

What is the NESM technique?

NESM technique in its full form is Neuro-Epigenetic Scientific Meditation. The characteristic of this technique is neural regeneration and genetic behaviour optimization which facilitates brain development, overall health and balanced coherence between head hand and heart for optimized expression of your fullest potential. Coherence is required in all these three areas for a human being to think and operate efficiently, rationally, and with emotional stability.

NESM technique is the outcome of more than twenty five years of exploration of meditation by Banani Ray and Dr. Amit Ray, who had set aside their very successful professional carriers to explore meditation in a scientific way; who have continuously worked to help spread genuine knowledge and teachings on the profound truths of life in a way so that anyone from anywhere and any background can understand and take advantage of it. This technique is a culmination of their long experience in meditation, teaching and scientific studies on the field.

NESM technique draws inspiration and insight from the current study on neuro-plasticity of human brain apart from other cutting edge scientific studies and research on meditation neuro-science, genetics and well being. Neuro-Epigenetic Scientific Meditation can induce epigenetic advantage and include techniques that has been shown to reverse cellular aging by lowering oxidative stress, which in turn increases longevity. It has a powerful impact on DNA and has even been suggested to increase telomere length, allowing for a positive shift in genetic expression. The present workshop will teach NESM Level I, which is the basic version of the technique.

Who can attend the workshop?

Anyone who is interested in health and wellness and meditation in general is welcome to attend. Professionals, doctors, engineers, students, and people of all ages and all walks of life can attend the workshop.
