Learn How to Meditate on a Meditation Retreat:   Meditation techniques and classes are also taught on weekend retreats as well as on longer national retreats.  See Upcoming Retreats.


This meditation class provides four classes in further meditation techniques: 1) A Visual Meditation practice which develops the power of concentration and deepens ability to focus and have greater awareness in daily life. With greater awareness in daily life we experience the true value within ourselves. 2)  Pranayama (breathing practice) which detoxifies the body, attunes oneself to a higher rhythm, and captures the vital force within to gain needed energy. 3) A Shakti meditation practice to connect with the universal principle of grace. Shakti is that universal force pervading everything in the universe.


Individualized Meditation Instruction:  Personalized mantra and meditation techniques based on the individual’s own unique make up are offered in one-on-one instruction.


Advanced meditation techniques and practices are offered to deepen meditation experience. Advanced meditation practices are offered individually and on meditation retreats.


Course fees are determined by your local teacher and are on a sliding scale or paid by installments when necessary. A suggested donation of $150 is given by the student to AMS for the individualized mantra practice. Students are never turned away from AMS classes because of financial hardship.
