Vishoka Meditation Course: Support and Structure to Transform Your Personal Meditation Practice (Zoom) with Sarah Guglielmi and Julia Kress

Wednesdays, October 12 – December 14; 6:30-8:30pm

Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow and infused with joy and tranquility. The ancient yogis called this state Vishoka, and they insisted that we all can reach it, even in the midst of a highly chaotic world.

How do we do it? We train our mind to stay focused on what we can control. We design our meditation practice, our yoga lifestyle, and our worldview to support our evolution towards Vishoka.

The Vishoka Meditation® Course is the official companion to Pandit Rajmani Tigunait’s Vishoka Meditation book and is designed to help you comprehensively experience the wisdom and practices described therein.

In this intensive program, we’ll go through Vishoka Meditation step-by-step, and break down all the preparatory practices as well as the complete practice of Vishoka Meditation. Learn each step systematically, while you build your practice at home in between sessions. The Vishoka Meditation system expands on the 5-Step meditation process you know from the Himalayan Tradition. It will help you take your practice to the next level, and is designed for students of all proficiencies, from those just beginning, to experienced meditators and yoga teachers.

Cost: $349 (Payment Plan Offered)

Attention Yoga Teachers: This course qualifies for 20 CEU credits with Yoga Alliance. This course is a prerequisite for the Vishoka Meditation Teacher Training Course offered through the Himalayan Institute headquarters in Honesdale, PA.
