Vichara Therapist Training
October 29 - November 3 2019
Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center Downingtown PA
The mind is very tricky! Dealing with your own is hard enough, but supporting students and clients through the process is even more challenging. Our guided self-inquiry process clears the “stuff” out of mind and heart, whether you are offering it in private sessions to your therapy clients or using it on yourself. Vichara endows your mind with a yogic perspective that creates clarity and ease in your life.
This five-day professional training first trains you to delve deeply into your own issues, tracing difficulties to their source in order to access your inner answers. Once you’ve gone deeply into yourself, you learn how to truly hear other people in a new way and to help them transcend their mind.
“It feels like my practice is coming from a deeper place inside. For the first time, I have a steadier experience of the Self being so close, just beyond my mind. I am also starting to realize how I do not always live in my body and how that happens. Now I am finding my way back into my body.”
