The instructors will be Vina and Vidyasagar, National IAM Coordinators who have taught this technique on Amma's tours across North America. It will begin with an orientation on Friday evening, followed by a weekend retreat immersed in learning and practicing this meditation. IAM® - Integrated Amrita Meditation is a short and simple approach to meditation that anyone can learn. It is a powerful way to reconnect with your real center and thereby experience true joy and peace in life. This technique is born out of Amma's deep resolve for our spiritual enhancement, and when practiced with dedication is designed to bring integration into your life—an integration of body, mind, intellect, and heart. It consists of gentle yoga poses and seated meditation, and incorporates movement, breath, sound, and visualization.

IAM-35 Meditation is offered for those people who are deeply interested in spiritual practice. The course includes Amma’s spiritual teachings on meditation and practical guidance for a worry-free life. It is a 35-minute practice.

IAM Guided Meditation Sessions are for IAM graduates who have completed the full IAM Course. The steps of the technique are verbally guided, and there is an opportunity for extended silent meditation together. Guided meditation helps to deepen and support an individual's daily practice, and meditation in a group is beneficial for all who participate. Depending on the session, it is about 30 - 60 minutes. Please contact each instructor/team to register: include your full name, when and where you attended the IAM Course, and the day of the week/time of each session you wish to sign up for.
