Matthew Spangler is a meditation teacher and founder of The Spangler Center, an organization that supports others in the cultivation of healthy, free, and empowered living with education and coaching.
For over a decade, Matthew has immersed himself both in the practice of Vedic Meditation and its accompanying intellectual knowledge-base. In February of 2009, he found himself at the geographical source of the technique – the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, engaged in a rigorous teacher-training program with 40-year veteran teacher and world-renowned Vedic scholar, Maharishi Thom Knoles. the world’s foremost teacher of Vedic Meditation outside of India who has taught over 20,000 individuals how to mediate. Matthew considers himself to be taught by the best.
Now, based in Los Angeles, Matthew is an independent teacher of Vedic Meditation, working with individuals to access inner potential, develop self-sufficiency, and sustain balance in daily life. He teaches weekly courses in Vedic Meditation and advanced courses in the study of the Vedas. He is currently working on his first book aimed at sharing the benefits of meditation and the practical application of the Vedic world view. Meditation is truly a gift; both to practice and to teach and Matthew finds great joy in guiding others to the discovery of the teacher within.
Matthew’s approach for the Empowered Peace meditation series is to guide listeners to experience the space of peace within, and then to integrate that state into the experiences of daily life. His intention is for the value of meditation to become accessible and actualized during ‘non-meditation’ time. Our meditation experiences then become a foundation for our state of being in the world. As we continue to absorb the value of diving within, we become empowered to create the life we desire.
