Advanced Studies on Meditation Techniques and Spiritual Practices - MTSP 1

You can only know a person in totality if you know your own totality.

You are enlightened. All the meditational and spiritual practices are just to remove the clouds that obscure the sun of enlightenment.

Meditation course

MTSP 1 module

The MTSP 1 module is a curriculum that can be done online through 40 weekly sessions of two hours throughout the year, or in a 10-day retreat in one of our ashrams. In this course we go through the areas of knowledge in which a meditation teacher must be competent in order to do his or her work correctly. We go through the different approaches to the same problems that are made in the diverse branches of psychology, spiritual and contemplative traditions, and western Philosophy. We focus on Buddhist, Christian, Non-Dualism, Hinduism and modern Yoga currents as well as the contributions that have been made to meditation and mindfulness techniques by the academic world, particularly those emanating from the work of people such as Jon Kabat Zinn, Marshall Rosenberg and Davidson.

This module also explores various techniques that can be used as a toolbox in our daily lives to deal with our feelings, emotions, thoughts, stress, and develops the qualities that facilitate connection to, and the awareness of, the natural goodness that exists in the human heart.
