Tim has designed this Integrated Initiator Training (IIT) course to share with you the ancient methods of initiation and instruction in the art of teaching Vedic Meditation.
Tim conducts Initiator Training in an integrated non-residential format because this is how we live. Fully engaged in the modern world, balancing the demands of families, friends, work colleagues, our local community, jobs and careers, and our broader interests.
To be eligible to join this program, you will have been practicing Vedic Meditation for a minimum of twelve months and attended at least one Residential Weekend Retreat or Advanced Mantra Technique with me.
Application to join the course will be made in writing, stating your intention behind wanting to become a Vedic Meditation teacher.
The Integrated Initiator Training course will involve the following components:
1. Transfer of Structured Teaching Materials
2. Attendance at Two Residential Rounding Retreats
3. Attendance at Learn To Meditate Courses
4. Testing of Teaching Materials
We have the great good fortune of sharing a tradition that is thousands of years old. One of the cornerstones of this tradition is that the teachings are handed down from teacher to student in spoken form.
To facilitate this transfer of knowledge, there will be a weekly meeting from 9.15 – 11am every Friday morning at The Wellbeing Centre in Paddington, for the duration of the course. These are to be attended either in person or via Zoom conferencing. There will be an optional student-led meeting on Wednesdays as support to Friday’s live teachings.
Consistent live attendance at these meetings is a critical and non-negotiable component of the course. These meetings will be taped for review and for catch-up purposes should a meeting be missed.
Accommodation for distance learning can be made. This will be at my discretion and requirements will be strict.
Formal meetings for the IIT 2022 course will commence: 22nd July 2022
