Introduction to Meditation

What Is the Introduction to Meditation course?

The Introduction Meditation Program (ITM) is a program developed for those who

  1. Have not meditated before
  2. Have limited experience meditating, or the depth of their meditation has not gone out of the Conscious mind
  3. Have had difficulty understanding what meditation is and how to do it
  4. May have had frustrating experiences in the past trying to meditate

We plan to make the ITM available as an on-line program that anyone can take, wherever they are in the world.

We also have teachers in training, who will offer this course in an individual and group format, as an in-person course.

These teachers are among our most experienced and advanced students, who will assist you to successfully learn meditation, and to prepare yourself for the more advanced practices.

Just like our intermediate courses, MMCIM and AMP, are available as an in-person format and a self-study format, ITM will also be available in both formats.

What Will I Get from this Course?
  • You will learn the rudiments of meditation, which will be an excellent preparation for additional courses with Mudrashram®—or any other system of meditation you may choose to study
  • You will learn to recognize the structures within your mind, which will enable you to enhance your ability to control and focus your attention
  • You will gain greater confidence in your ability to meditate
When Do I Need this Course?
  • If you have never meditated before, ITM is an excellent place to start
  • If you have had problems settling down or focusing in meditation, ITM provides the structure to allow you to be successful
  • If you do not feel confident enough in your current ability to meditate and visualize the contents of awareness, ITM will take you step-by-step through the levels of your mind
In What Formats is the ITM delivered?
  1. The Introduction to Meditation Program is available on-line, with videos and notes, so you can do it as a self-study course. This is the Regular ITM program.
  2. It is also available on-line as an Individual and group coaching program, where you will meet with a trained teacher with a group or one-on-one, and do the course with additional support. This is the Enhanced ITM program.
  3. You can also train with a certified ITM instructor in your area, either in person, or over Skype. This is the Individualized ITM Program.
