ONE YEAR MEDITATION TEACHER TRAINING INC PERSONAL SELF DISCOVERY

16th Sep, 2018 @ 9:30 - 16th Jun, 2019 @ 17:30

en nl

This special training will begin September 16th, 2018 with regular one day meetings through to June 16th, 2019, included also is a five-day residential silent meditation retreat in Doorn from 1s January 2019 to 6th January.

Awareness through Meditation produces a harmonizing effect on our minds and thus vastly improves the quality of our lives. With Meditation we become more relaxed, less fearful and generally happier as deep within the subconscious human mind there resides much fear, conflict, phobias, false ideas, depression and conditioning. This affects and inhibits our lives, restricting us from living to our full potential, and happiness. This is why Meditation is so essential.

In this course, you will learn and practice together Meditation techniques that will bring greater self-awareness, calmness, balance and thus happiness into our lives. The aim is to understand the nature of human suffering and yet not identify with it. Not identifying frees you so that you can enjoy a more complete and happy life.
Just becoming more and more aware of what is going on inside oneself has a profound effect on us. A physiological alchemy occurs! A great change occurs.  A transformation!

You will learn various forms of meditation and their overall aims, as well as learn in-depth and extensively practice: various meditation techniques, mindfulness, bandhas, breathe awareness and retention. From your own experience, you will then know which forms of meditation best suit you and your lifestyle at this moment and thus offer the most benefit to you personally.

It sounds serious but of course, we will also take a light-hearted approach to the matter with song and celebration!

Interested?  Then come and join our three Meditation days. That will be a good start.

 

The Training will begin on the personal level with Self Enquiry and Understanding, using simple profound meditation practices, before participants will be coached into how to introduce, teach and share meditation with others. The sharing of meditation is based on the silent transmission of one own inner experience and not just giving out verbal instructions.

“For me, the most important aspect is not how many techniques and meditation practices you know about, nor how well you know the teachings and the scriptures, but how deeply you have experienced who you are, and to allow this continuous existential experience to guide your life. When one has a greater understanding of themselves and their True Nature ie who they are beyond names, labels and even forms, then one can really begin to share with others and can be present with their students as they steer their way through life’s ups and downs.
 
So, for this reason, my initial focus in the Training is on personal development and self-understanding, continually pointing to ones personal experience within the spiritual life.
 
To gain this self-experience I will, of course, be sharing over the year many meditation practises and techniques, some I am sure you will be familiar with, both moving (dancing, walking, shaking, cathartic), and still/silent meditations (I will emphasise the two aspects of Vipassana – progressing from doing to absolute non-doing).
 
So yes, over the year, we will practise many different techniques and meditations and you will be asked to practice these at home to become fully familiar with them. All these practices I know intimately and will be sharing with you, having practised them myself for more than 40 years. Also, you will be coached on how to teach and share them correctly and hopefully inspirationally!”

New Year Meditation Retreat :

“Only in deep relaxation will you uncover and experience who you truly are. At first it can only be that way”    Anand Nigam

 

What a better way to start the new year if not in silence, in the stillness of your own heart, in presence of That, which always is, the unborn, which never dies. Together we will practice being the observer, the sear which remains unseen in front of all phenomena, of the Dream.

Love and gratitude will inevitably arise, then one realises all is Grace, in fact there is only grace.

Are you a little curious?

Come and jump into The Mystery with us!
