Will Williams has taught thousands of everyday people to meditate with astounding results. Long term sufferers of debilitating conditions including insomnia, depression and anxiety have used Will’s unique form of Beeja meditation to transform their lives. Others have found a new sense of joy and fulfilment in their lives, and report becoming incredibly productive and creative at work and home.
Supported by scientific research, The Effortless Mind explains how Beeja meditation soothes and calms both the mind and the central nervous system - with fast-acting, tangible results. Each chapter in the book is dedicated to a different problem created in our increasingly pressured and demanding world including addiction, divorce, and work-related stress. Compelling real life stories reveal how Beeja meditation can help overcome these traumatic situations and help improve relationships with both ourselves and others, with chapters on family, anger management, digestion and overeating.
Stories from the book include Nick, a banker and father of two who was admitted to psychiatric hospital for depression. Within two months of learning Will’s technique his anxiety had halved, his medication reduced and a month later he returned to work. Then there is Mia, a medical researcher who suffered with chronic IBS. With GPs dismissive and medication ineffective, Will’s meditation course led to results within 72 hours. Mia’s IBS clinic discharged her citing meditation as the catalyst.
Will’s meditation technique is so successful at calming the mind that he has become one of the UK’s leading meditation teachers and experts. Will teaches Beeja meditation to the world’s biggest brands including Google, Microsoft, BBC, Spotify, HSBC, Sony and Universal. His celebrated courses and retreats have taught film stars, musicians, business leaders, royals, politicians and explorers how to use his simple method to increase productivity, release potential and foster creativity.

Crucially, Will encourages meditators to become self-sufficient. With his Beeja mantra technique, you are given your own unique sound which you repeat in your mind for 20 minutes. Before you know it your mind drops into a deep meditative state, deeper and more restful than sleep. Will’s technique means you can meditate anywhere - on your commute, on a trans-Atlantic flight or at your desk. You don’t have to be in a quiet room, and you don’t have to cross your legs! Will recommends practicing for 20 minutes twice a day, when you wake up in the morning and before you eat in the evening, as meditating on an empty stomach helps to reset your digestive system.

Beeja meditation also offers an unmatched opportunity for those wanting to supercharge their life. My book shows how you can be more productive and creative – transforming your professional life, and opening up new ideas and opportunities in and out of work. I’m confident ‘The Effortless Mind’ will spark a new wave of interest in our technique, and change lives for the better.”
My Thoughts on the book:
I had no expectations when I opened this book. I hadn't heard of Will and have no knowledge of Beeja meditation so I was completely open-minded.
Initially it felt a bit like reading a text book but as I began to get into it more, it changed for me. The testimonials and case studies are incredibly moving and provide great insight into why and how people turn to Will and meditation. Some of them left me in tears, in particular, those dealing with anxiety and depression, which is what I've suffered from.
The practice of Beeja sounds very intriguing to me and I would love to be able to study with Will. He seems like an amazing man and he has done great things for and with many people. It's quite phenomenal reading about just how much meditation can change so much about us, our bodies, our lives and our minds. I don't think I realised the power we held within our minds.
All in all, I loved this book. It was a very interesting, insightful and enjoyable read and I think it will help many, many people. If you're struggling, whether it be physically or mentally, read this. I think you will take something away and it may just help you. I know it's helped me. 9/10
