The Art of Transmission

A 9 month 60+ Hour Live Training on HOW TO GUIDE Yoga Nidra and Meditation

Being a teacher of meditation means first and foremost being a practitioner of moving thru states of consciousness. Many YTTs and other trainings only barely touch upon the profound nature of meditation, states of consciousness, and how to be a space holder for these ancient practices. This Teachers’ Training is for those with an ardent fire to share these practices with the utmost respect, maturity and depth. This Training focuses on entering meditative states and transmitting those states to our students, as well as deep inner work regarding the personality consciousness.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

This training is for teachers and seekers who want to explore Yoga Nidra & Meditation beyond techniques — as states of consciousness. This is a training where YOU take the lead as a guide, and we hold space for your potential to emerge. Our emphasis will be on:

GURU DAKSHINA PARAMPARA
A Note on Course Fees

I have thought long and hard about how much to charge for this training. This training requires the highest level of purity and intention from my side in offering these sublime teachings on meditative transmission.

I have been guided by my own connection to my lineages to offer it in the Spirit of Gurudakṣiṇā. Gurudakṣiṇā refers to the tradition of repaying one’s teacher or guru after a period of study or the completion of formal education, or an acknowledgment to a spiritual guide. The tradition is one of humility, acknowledgment, respect, and thanks. It is a form of reciprocity and exchange between student and teacher, and is decided by the student at the end of the training period. Therefore, no essence of monetary exchange is embedded within the transmission of teachings throughout the training period.

Please submit your registration form below by MAY 31st – once I have gone through it I will contact you for further steps.
