“Thinking is an art, a skill, a technique.
You must learn and practice it as you would the violin, golf or bridge.”
- A. Parthasarathy

Vedanta Institute LA offers group discussions for those wishing to learn more about self-development and self-reflection.  The groups provide you with the necessary tools to guide the mind, and deal with life’s challenges effectively.

We also offer closed groups - members invited by you, and not advetised on the website.  Individual sessions are also available, for specific application of the philosophuical principles.

These groups are facilitated by Glen Callahan, a graduate of the Vedata Academy. He has been a student, practitioner, and teacher of Vedanta philosophy for over 15 years.  We encourage you to question, discuss, and analyze life from the perspective of the philosophy of Vedanta.
