Philosophy of the Meditation Teacher Training

Meditation is a medicine for the soul. It connects us with our wholeness and makes us see the biggest picture. Through different practices, we learn how to bring awareness to our mind (thought-space) and  connect with our consciousness for more clarity and peace in life.

Through many different sources like Yoga, Tantra, Buddhism, catharsis, mindfulness and more, we  become more fully awake and alert. The mind’s focus is brought back inside and away from external  world, fantasies and illusions.

It is also a way of relaxation in our crazy, fast world and bringing peace and harmony to our physical,  mental and spiritual layers.

Meditations are also connected with emotional healing, helping to release old stuck-up emotional patterns from the past. In this training espescially, emotions and feelings are acknowledged and tools  are shared to transform them into states of bliss and presence.

It is therapeutic to begin with and releases tension from the body, nervous system and mental stress. It also helps in making the immune system stronger and increases energy levels and motivation in daily  life.

In this Meditation Teacher Training, we take you on a journey to various techniques, processes and ways to heal ourselves and other and become whole again. The ancient wisdom of Yoga and Buddhism combined with the new-age ways of body awareness, movement, conscious touch and mindfulness!

Find out more about how to firstly experience and then learn to guide active and passive meditations, solo, partner and group meditations, mantras, visualisations, sharing circles, journaling, observational
walks and more.

We bring the attention back on the basic layers of life through Chakras, energy channels and combine them with daily lifestyle and practices for living a more full, total and satisfying life experience.

We start our day with basic stretching (Hatha yoga with Iyengar alignment) and active meditations in the morning to wake up the prana in the system. Continuing with deeper practices unraveling the layers of thoughts, emotions and feelings in afternoon session. Evenings are for more body awareness, Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep) and dance meditations to bring the day to a nice, light closure.

We also learn self-observation and self-analysis tools to know more about our deepest selves and hold that space for us to guide sessions from our center.

Also, we will work on the tone, volume, enunciation, choice of words, creating silence and more technical ways to guide deep and powerful meditation journeys in a one-on-one or group sessions.
