Event description

Description

How can meditative practices facilitate great shifts in our body and mind? Accredited by Yoga Alliance as a vocational course in meditation, this training strives to uncover the root of this question and enhance our ability to hold the space for modern day humans.

Underpinned by a revolutionary fusion of yogic philosophy and scientific study of the human being, this training helps students to understand meditation and physiology in health and in stress, to restore equilibrium in the mind.


What does this training offer?

Our quest on this training is to explore the physiological systems that make up the human being. We will look at how they work, what can go wrong, how differing pathologies present, and what can be done to restore balance.

Students leave this training with:

  • A thorough understanding of the meditative process

  • Perspective of how the modern world is impacting our biological systems

  • The language and ability to traverse between the spiritual and medical domains

  • Mind and body problem-solving tools to restore equilibrium

  • The ability to competently deliver meditative practice to the general public, including vulnerable minds

  • Knowledge and ability to work with the relationship dynamics that arise in the helping professions

  • Knowledge of the Doorway to Meditation 8-week course

  • Support to develop and facilitate their own meditation course


Who is this training for?

The course is open to all teachers and healthcare professionals who hold a desire to develop their understanding of the human condition.

Both yoga teachers and people in the medical or therapeutic community can benefit from meditative training, delivered within a scientific framework, as it offers the knowledge and language necessary to traverse between the spiritual and medical domains.


Why take this training at this time?

In this modern day, with mental health conditions rising at an exponential rate, a whole-person approach to therapy and healing is needed.

Just as western medicine is becoming more interested in the benefits of contemplative practice, we must learn how to bridge the gap between the medical and spiritual domains to enhance our ability to work effectively in our roles.

Our aim is to empower our students with the medical language and tools to reach out and work with those who cannot yet engage with a spiritual dialogue.


Course Structure

This training consists of 100 hours delivered over five modules, home practice and online support.

The modules build upon each other to provide a robust understanding of using contemplative practices for systems that are out of balance. Each module is made up of 16 contact hours, and 4 non-contact hours.

The topics are accompanied by specific techniques appropriate for creating balance. Each module has three components: an exploration of meditative processes, an introduction to how our biological systems respond, and teaching of psycho-therapeutic holding skills and practice.

The course is upheld by the timelessness of Kundalini Yoga philosophy, mind and body wisdom, and a more recent scientific study of the human being.

A full breakdown of each module's learning outcomes is available here.

Students are supervised by Shaura Hall throughout the training and assessment process (this is included in the investment). One hundred per cent of the contact hours in this training is delivered by a Senior Yoga Teacher. Guest teachers are Heather Mason and Siri Sadhana Kaur.

This is a Yoga Alliance 100 hour accredited vocational training in meditation.
