Mini courses are inexpensive ways to quickly absorb, embody and apply a spiritual principle, by way of focused instruction. Mini courses are designed to help us examine all the aspects of the principles and methods taught in our curriculum, one at-a-time, in short, focused bursts, and on an experiential level that can be reflected in all the areas of our lives.

Mini courses meet once each week for 2-3 hours, in parts that are spread out over several months. Each part is a separate module that can be attended without having taken the previous part.

Course 106 – For Adults.

What Makes Love Supreme? – Part 3

This is Part 3 of a three-part course. This mini course will also be webcast live.

Love is the first of the three foundational principles of The Art of Inner Transformation.

Shri Bhagawan Nityananda of Ganeshpuri states, “The Heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there and roam.” Shri Narada defines Love in the following way: “When Love comes, God reveals himself.  By attaining it, a person becomes perfect, immortal and satisfied forever. This is how you know that it is Love.”

In this 3-part mini course, we will examine what Love really is and why it is so difficult for some to experience and imbibe. The power of this Love will be elucidated and experienced in this mini course.

Topics for this course will be taken from the understandings that have been offered by Sadguru Kedarji through intensives, talks and the presentation of the utterances of the Self-realized Love beings of our Shiva lineage.

For seekers of the Truth who want to end their seeking with permanent spiritual transformation, this course is a must.

Advance Enrollment Required.

$60 per person, for Part 3.

All parts of this course will be taught by Sadguru Kedarji.

When

Part 3. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. September 21st and September 28th of 2017.

Course 110 – For Adults.

The Power of The Practice of Contemplation – Part 1

This is Part 1 of a two-part mini course.

The practice of proper contemplation of the instruction and methods offered by Sadguru Kedarji, that are also taught by our certified program leaders, is a skillful practice. Without knowing how to engage in contemplation of instruction, lessons, utterances and practices offered to you, over a long period of time, Sadhana becomes just a series of unanswered questions, even when the answers are right there in front of you!

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, we will examine the most effective approach to the practice of contemplating the utterances, instruction and methods for engaging Sadhana. This mini course is ripe with the highest understandings of our lineage of Sages, for perfecting the practice of contemplation that always leads to the experience of the Bliss of the Self, and the inner knowing necessary to steadily advance in Sadhana.

A must for any serious student in our school.

Advance Enrollment Required.

$60 per person, for Part 1.

All parts of this course will be taught by Sadguru Kedarji.

When

Part 1. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. October 12th and 19th of 2017. 7-9pm.

Course 111 – For Adults.

How To Keep The Best Inner and Outer Company – Part 1

This is Part 1 of a two-part mini course.

By company we rise and by company we fall. It takes only one drop of sour curd to spoil an entire vat of milk. Similarly, the inner and outer company we choose to keep has an immediate and powerful impact on the direction our Sadhana takes – and whether or not we ever fulfill our intention for permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation in each moment.

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, we will examine all that is necessary to keep the best inner and outer company that continually allows us to imbibe Grace, rather than sabotaging it. How to go about changing the company we keep will also be addressed, along with how to make the shift from dependence on and the influence of friends, loved ones and associates who may never take an interest in the direction we have decided to go, to better ourselves.

Advance Enrollment Required.

$60 per person, for Part 1.

All parts of this course will be taught by Sadguru Kedarji.

When

Part 1. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. November 9th and 16th of 2017. 7-9pm.
Part 2. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. March 22nd and 29th of 2018. 7-9pm.

Course 112 – For Adults.

How To Properly Understand and Engage The Kriya Process – Part 1

This is Part 1 of a two-part mini course.

The Kriya process that begins after the receipt of Shaktipat, is the cornerstone of Sadhana (retracing one’s steps back to God). It is the conduit for the Guru’s Grace and the way in which we come to live in a state of Grace.

In our approach, the Kriya process is the most vital component of the removal of the karmic obstacles that prevent us from experiencing the Self and realizing our true nature, from moment-to-moment. These karmic obstacles manifest the past and present mental conditioning that keeps us bound to thinking and behaviors that conceal God from us.

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, we will examine all of the components of the Kriya process that is Sadhana. This will include a detailed examination of how to understand, manage and learn from our Kriyas. The highest and most useful understandings of what Kriya is will be imparted by Kedarji in this mini course.

Advance Enrollment Required.

$60 per person, for Part 1.

All parts of this course will be taught by Sadguru Kedarji.

When

Part 1. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. December 21st and 28th of 2017. 7-9pm.
Part 2. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. April 19th and 26th of 2018. 7-9pm.

Course 113 – For Adults.

How To Cultivate A Strong Experience of Bhakti – Part 1

This is Part 1 of a two-part mini course.

Bhakti, the devotion and mad longing for God, the living Sadguru and that Guru’s state, is a spiritual principle that every sage of our lineage speaks about as being an absolute necessity for spiritual transformation and Liberation. Without Bhakti, God cannot be experienced, Love cannot be properly understood and the attachment, attraction and aversion (the ego idea) cannot be destroyed. Bhakti is so essential to permanent spiritual transformation that the Sages of steady wisdom all program it as the highest, the greatest of all spiritual attributes.

There is no Shanti (peace) without Bhakti. With the right leadership and practice, this Devotion, this Longing can be cultivated and fully realized.

In this two-part mini course led by Sadguru Kedarji, all of the instruction and methods necessary to fully cultivate and protect your Bhakti (including the steps to cultivate Viveka and Vairagya) will be taught.

Advance Enrollment Required.

$60 per person, for Part 1.

All parts of this course will be taught by Sadguru Kedarji.

When

Part 1. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. January 18th and 25th of 2018. 7-9pm.
Part 2. Two consecutive Thursday evenings. May 10th and 17th of 2018. 7-9pm.
