Advance in your Sadhana at a steady pace,
without constantly getting stuck!

Mini courses are inexpensive ways to quickly absorb, embody and apply a spiritual principle, by way of focused instruction. The purpose of these mini courses is to provide a foundation in the teachings of our approach and the scripture/sacred texts – the utterances of the Sages of our lineage – for better understanding and applying the instruction you receive from The Guru and the experience of our spiritual practices.

For those who are still performing the test of the living Sadguru as indicated in our approach, mini courses are an excellent means for examining the core instruction of the Sadgurus of our lineage, as a basis for testing the utterances, behavior and instruction of Sadguru Kedarji.

Mini courses meet once each week for 2-3 hours, sometimes 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. **Some mini courses have a prerequisite of study, others do not. The info for each mini course also indicates who the course leader will be.

How To Conquer Fear With Love – Part 1

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

In the context of becoming fearless, we will apply specific methods taught to us in this course for conquering fear with Love, in the very moment of choice.

Obstacles In Sadhana, How To Get Unstuck – Part 1

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

After the receipt of Shaktipat, the Shaktipat Kriya Process, also known as Sadhana, begins in earnest. In earnest means that one proceeds by engaging the leadership of the Sadguru, with the understanding that this is done to end one’s seeking.

As the vast store of our karmic obstacles to permanent spiritual transformation is addressed in the mirror of the Guru, many Kriyas occur. In addition, there are milestones in the Shaktipat Kriya Process, and many common pitfalls that can be avoided or quickly cured with the right understanding, methods and leadership.

In this 2-part mini course you will be taught the methods/practice for consistently addressing your karmic obstacles that keep God concealed from you in the moment – from moment-to-moment.

Course Leader: Sadguru Kedarji

Topic areas include:

  • Properly Understanding and Embracing The Mirror of The Guru
  • Recognizing Your Kriyas and Using Them To Rise Above Your Karmic Obstacles
  • Avoiding The Pitfalls and Quickly Getting Unstuck When You Become Entangled

Prerequisites: You must have attended at least one Shaktipat Meditation Intensive. This mini course is for people ages 18 and up.

Course 116 – For Adults.

How To Become A Worthy Disciple

The purpose of Shaktipat is to mature in Sadhana to the point where you recognize the value of and want to embrace Discipleship. Discipleship is the final stage of Shaktipat, as it is the commitment necessary to complete our return to our primordial home – Liberation in the Absolute.

Discipleship requires a complete lifestyle change. For this reason, it is not automatic, simply because one has decided to follow a Shaktipat Sadguru. Sadguru Kedarji chooses his Disciples after a Discipleship trial. This is done to ensure that the devotee has willingly accepted the discipline that will be necessary to perfect his/her Discipleship, leading to becoming fully established in the Bliss, the nectar of Self-awareness that is the goal of all true spiritual paths.

In this mini course you will be taught what it means to be a Disciple of a Sadguru. Utterances of the Sages of steady wisdom of our lineage on this topic will be shared and examined. The Discipleship trial will be explained. The intention for Discipleship will also be examined and the necessary lifestyle change will be addressed. We will also be taught what it means to be a Disciple under the leadership of the Guru.

Course Leader: Sadguru Kedarji

Topic areas include:

  • What Is Discipleship and What Is Expected of A Disciple
  • What Is A Discipleship Trial and How Does One Enter Into It
  • What Is The Purpose of Discipleship and Why Is It Necessary
  • What Is The Difference Between A Follower, A Devotee and A Disciple
  • The Importance of Guruseva For The Receipt of Grace and Spiritual Merit

Prerequisite: You must have attended at least one Shaktipat Meditation Intensive. This mini course is for people ages 18 and up.

Advance Enrollment Required.

The Hidden Pitfalls of Anger

Anger is the root cause of so many spiritual, emotional and physical disorders and diseases. Anger is a chief obstacle to permanent spiritual transformation and Liberation. However, it is cloaked in the hidden mysteries of the play of the impurities, the Gunas and the Malas.

In this way, anger is the ego’s weapon that is used to destroy our spiritual attainment in so many ways that we are often not aware of. It takes the magnifying glass of the Guru’s Love to root this unseen challenge out.

In this mini course you will be taught effective methods for increasing your awareness of this limiting and binding tendency while, at the same time, rooting anger out so that it can be exposed in you and destroyed.

Course Leader: Sadguru Kedarji

Topic areas include:

  • All The Ways In Which Anger Masquerades As Useful Qualities
  • How Anger Erodes Your Inner State While Masquerading As The Protector of Your Identity and Freedom
