What is PSM?
Primordial Sound Meditation is a meditation methodology used by Adi Shankara, a ninth-century sage. An ancient practice ingrained in the Vedic tradition of India, Deepak Chopra rediscovered this powerful meditation technology and made it accessible, so that western society can easily practice and enjoy the immense benefits.
Primordial Sound Meditation is based on primordial sounds, the most basic sounds or vibrations of nature. There are 108 Primordial Sound mantras, all derived from the work of ancient sages, who recorded the vibrations of the universe, all in relation to the position of the moon. When you learn Primordial Sound Meditation, the personal mantra you receive is the sound that the universe was making at the time and place of your birth.
According to the Primordial Sound Meditation tradition, the vibration that took you from non-consciousness into consciousness can also take you back, allowing you to journey from the incessant activity of your mind into silence — into an experience of pure awareness (pure bliss).

After studying with Deepak Chopra, the Chopra team, ayurvedic medicine and yoga collectively for more than 25 years, 2018 was the year I wanted to step up and experience more in life.
I was really good at setting my intentions, but I wasn’t good at setting the seed of intention, watering it, nurturing it and then TRUSTING the Universe to do the rest. I was way too attached to the “Outcome” of the intention, choking the life out of any possible manifestation or transformation. What does this mean in simple terms? I was stuck in a vicious circle, afraid of making bad decisions and choices, trying to micromanage and control everything. I knew I had potential, but I just couldn’t reach it.
Studying at the Chopra Centre has enabled me to gain clarity and focus on who I am, what I want and what my purpose is, all with an open and full heart. What I didn’t expect was the extraordinary experiences and such profound levels of higher consciousness. I cannot wait to tell you all the stories and help you express your soul’s purpose.

It is an undeniable fact that during most of our waking life, we are stuck in our heads, engaged in a constant internal dialogue in which the meaning and emotional associations of one thought trigger the next. We smell a familiar scent and suddenly we’re thinking about the first time we met an old boyfriend or girlfriend and how that relationship ended. If we’re still holding emotional pain over that ending, those feelings may pop up and then our mind may go into mental chaos with criticism, self-pity or worries about the future.
Every day our mind creates incessant stories about our weight, money, health, profile, loved ones and our future. Most of the time we’re not even conscious of this internal banter that is plaguing our mind and yet it is the greatest source of stress in our lives.
It’s true that our minds can create spectacular and positive stories, but it also has what neuroscientists call negative bias: a tendency to pay more attention to negative experiences than to positive ones. This pattern of behaviour has evolved as a survival mechanism over millions of years. Our ancestors always focused their attention on avoiding being eaten by sabre-tooth tigers, they didn’t have the luxury of relaxing to enjoy the sunset with a glass of Pino. This would have been a total waste of their precious energy reserves, not to mention a possible death wish. Those who survived passed on the gene that pays extra attention to danger. Their legacy is a brain that is somewhat obsessed with negative experiences and has an override function that forces us to get stuck in conditioned patterns of thinking, returning again and again to thoughts of anxiety, depression, and limitation.
The Benefits of Meditation
Meditation is one of the best (natural) tools we have to override the brain’s obsession with negativity bias. With countless case studies and examples across the world, we now know meditation can help release stress, encourage positive experiences and allow you to enjoy the peace of the moment. Regular meditation practice produces tangible benefits for mental and physical health, including:
- Decreased blood pressure and hypertension
- Lowered cholesterol levels
- Reduced production of “stress hormones” including cortisol and adrenaline
- More efficient oxygen use by the body
- Increased production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA
- Improved immune function
- Decreased anxiety, depression, and insomnia

The benefits of meditation in the workplace are cumulative; they build on one another, starting with the individual and from there, positively impacting the performance of the business as a whole.
