Event description

Description

Become an authentic, skilled and certified Meditation Facilitator in the practice of Naturality, or living according to your true nature.


There are many approaches to understand the art and science of meditation. Our approach is through Naturality, meaning to live according to your true nature. The Naturality approach is neither religious nor spiritual but natural; after learning the basics of meditation techniques and practices, you are encouraged to discover your unique way of meditating according to your natural personality. It is the easiest way to practice meditation. The goal is to become free from fear and guilt and live with peace, passion and bliss.

From the Naturality point of view, meditation is relaxation, awareness and expansion of awareness. The practice of meditation promotes emotional healing and can be helpful for those suffering from a variety of acute and chronic health problems including stress-related disorders, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. As the practice deepens, we discover our natural self and inner guru and eventually experience mind expansion and stillness.

Whether you are a practitioner of meditation or a beginner, this program will deepen your own meditation practice and will also enable you to teach meditation to individuals and groups.

These comprehensive and unique programs are offered by Jivasu, founder of the Path of Naturality, and several of his fellow teachers, in association with the Canadian Yoga Alliance.

Teaching Methods


Experience based education – Experiencing and finding the source of experiences.

Problem based learning – Exploring the problem of fear, meaning in life, love, relationships, fulfillment, work and education.

Dialectical dialogue – Exploring two poles of an experience or knowledge.

Self-inquiry – Who am I? Enquiring into the origin of knowledge, beliefs and motives.

Healthy competition and co-operation – Helps in realizing and expressing our potential and brings unique creativity to teachings without having us feel isolated. We have a fear of our own greatness, known as Jonah’s complex, which we have to overcome to experience the best in us.


We become big by becoming bigger, not by making others small - and then by helping others to grow.
