Meditation Teacher TuneUp

7-Day Immersion & Training

July 29 - August 4 2019

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center  Downingtown PA 

Deepen your experience as a meditator and your skills as a meditation teacher in this full-week immersion and training with Swami Nirmalananda.  Along with studying new sutras, this immersion training draws on your ability to support each other, building on your experience of peer feedback and coaching in Meditation Teacher Training (MTT). 

Enjoy precious time with Swamiji, especially the tangible Grace of a Shaktipat Day during the retreat.  Learn from our Meditation Teacher Trainers as well as from your peers – all while you’re deepening both your inner experience and your outer connections.

DTS follows, where you further deepen your inner experience and ability to guide others.  Focused equally on your experience and your understanding, your at-home mentoring program (DTS — Develop your Teaching Skills) builds your “experiential understanding” (svaroopavidya) and your ability to put it into words that guide others inside.

Come early for the Half Day Workshop: Inner Openings on July 29.
