Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation Teacher Training

Begins Monday November 7 

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center,  Downingtown PA

Meditation is yoga’s most important practice. Svaroopa® Vidya Meditation is deep and easy, providing rapid transformation and upliftment. It gives you the experiential knowing of your own eternal essence, which is the true goal of meditation. In our Meditation Teacher Training, you deepen your own inner experience while you prepare to teach others.

“There are six types of teachers. One who simply urges another to meditate is a teacher, motivating self-improvement. The second type points the way down a specific path, while the third explains how the process works, thus giving even a greater gift.

An authorized teacher in a living lineage offers more: showing clearly what is inside, with the fifth type being empowered to be in relationship with their students at a deeper level.

The greatest of them is the sixth, who gives Shaktipat, illumining their student by the grace of the lineage they represent. Which kind of teacher do you want to be?”

- Gurudevi Nirmalananda

What type of teacher will you be? After our 12-day Meditation Teacher Training, you will be an authorized teacher in a living lineage. You’ll be empowered to be in relationship with your students at a deep level. You will have this access because of your relationship with Gurudevi, a Shaktipat master in a living lineage.

You learn to teach a comprehensive meditation course with three class meetings. You give your students access to deep meditation from the very beginning. You are trained to answer their questions, based on your profound understanding of meditation. This comes from the inner experiences you’ve had in the meditations in this training.

You will also practice teaching key sutras about meditation. Thus you can share the teachings of the ancient sages in a way that makes sense in our modern world.

“It was a wonderful opportunity to be immersed in the meditative practices while also learning how to share them with others.” - Kristine F

Learn how to work with the mind in order to go beyond the mind. Meditation reveals your inherent Divinity when it is fueled by the blessing of the masters who already know. It’s the highest teaching you can give to others, the greatest way to serve humankind.

After successful completion of this training, you’ll have many other certifications to explore. From a phone course to in-person immersions and sutra studies, these certifications take you and your students deeper. They give you the skills to help people with their minds as well as to get beyond their minds, to the deeper realms within.
