Week 3 Highlights: 
 
11/19, 07:30 PM EST: Meditation Sadhana as a Way of Life - Chuck Linke

This session will be an exploration of the practices of integrating meditation into one's daily life, creating the base of a consistent seated practice, accompanied by the expansion of that practice outward.
We will also preface tonight's Full Moon meditation through a look at what this brings to our individual practice.
Chuck Linke, M.S., RYT 500: A student in the Himalayan Yoga Tradition since 1970, presenting topics to students across the spectrum found throughout the tradition, Chuck is also serving as the Director of the Himalayan Yoga Teachers Training Program for over 10 years.
11/20, 9:00 AM EST: Advancing Mantra Practice After Initiation - Swami Ritavan Bharati

Seekers on the spiritual path are familiar with prayer, meditation and contemplation. With each of these the mystery of word reveals a deeper, more intimate and meaningful relationship with the divinity as higher consciousness.
It is said in the mantra science - mantra shastra - that without mantra, there is no meditation. Understanding the language of spirituality is necessary for meditation to bear fruit. It is imperative that a seeker understands the art and science of mantra, and practices the ways and means of meditation faithfully and whole-heartedly. This session will explore the purpose and application of mantra in meditation, along with the subtle philosophy of language, vak-shakti, and the sacred word, shabda, in the mantra science.
Swami Ritavan, MS, E-RYT-500, Ashram Pramukha and Spiritual Guide: Swami Ritavan has lived a life dedicated to serving Swami Rama and Swami Veda Bharati since 1970. After having been initiated at the age of 20, he transited through all the three Ashrams of Vedic life (Brahmacharya, Grihastha, and Vanaprastha) under the direct guidance of Swami Rama and Swami Veda Bharati. He was then initiated into Sanyasa in 2007. He has guided numerous silence and meditation retreats throughout the world and has been instrumental in guiding the International HYT-TTP. He is also a Mantra Initiator within the Tradition of the Himalayan Masters and now serves as Ashram Pramukha and Spiritual Guide of SRSG and the global AHYMSIN community.
11/21, 9:00 AM EST: Panel Discussion, Questions and Answers, Closing - All Presenters

The last presentation of the workshop will bring the faculty together to discuss further Meditation as the Core Practice in the Himalayan Tradition. There will be an integration of all the previous sessions allowing time to answer questions that remain from those sessions. Swami Ritavan will be present at this session to give his blessings and his appreciation to all for participating in this workshop and supporting SRSG.
