Meditation Group Leader Training

December 11-18 2018

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center  Downingtown PA

In this training, led by Swami Nirmalananda, you learn to lead group meditations, serving both experienced meditators as well as brand new meditators. You will offer a wonderful gift to everyone and to the world. These Svaroopa® Vidya satsangs are a seva opportunity, rather than an income opportunity for the Group Leader. This type of seva is profoundly transformative, serving others in the way that Swami Nirmalananda serves us.

Leading a Meditation Group is significantly more challenging than teaching a structured curriculum, which is why this extra training is needed after MTT (Meditation Teacher Training). Swamiji wrote about this in the April 2010 SATYA Q&A. In addition, this Group Leader Training focuses on the power of Grace flowing through Svaroopa® Vidya plus how to draw on it and describe it to others, as well as how to support their process as Kundalini blossoms within them.

“It is sharing of the teachings that I, as a Meditation Group Leader, have been entrusted…so that the teachings may spread as widely as possible in the hopes that all who study in our lineage become Self-Realized in their lifetime.”
— Tanmayee (Theresa) Reynolds
