Leading Short Meditations

Immersion Training: December 8-11 2018

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center,  Downingtown PA

Learn to lead short meditations for groups that are new to meditation.  These programs are wonderful community service programs, intros to promote your meditation course or to offer as part of a retreat or program taught by another teacher.  In just 30 or 60 minutes, you’ll engage the students in a discussion, present the key teachings and principles of meditation, teach them how to meditate and elicit their sharings afterward.  The ease and power of our meditation practice will inspire them to continue at home or to come in for more training.

This training will help you understand the role that grace plays in our powerful tradition, thereby making the profound become easy and the mystical become practical.  If you are already trained as a Svaroopa® meditation teacher, this course will renew and deepen your teaching.

Come early and join us for the Half-Day Workshop: More Confidence, More Joy, More Enthusiasm at 9:00 am on December 8th.
