IAM-35 Course, Mercer Island, Apr 21 - 22
2-Day IAM-35 Course, Seattle area, Apr 21 - 22
The IAM® (Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique) is a powerful tool for our personal and spiritual growth. Amma has said that this meditation acts on a very subtle level--eradicating all our negative tendencies, slowly but surely, and gives obvious practical results very fast. She has assured us that if we practice IAM regularly we will see all aspects of our lives improve.
There is no time like NOW to learn the IAM Technique! Please notify your friends and acquaintances who might like to attend.
When: Saturday 10 am – 4 pm and Sunday 1:30pm - 5:30pm
Where: NEW VENUE: Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 4400 86th Ave SE, Mercer Island, WA(Map)
Contact: Kumuda at to Register.
You must attend BOTH days to complete the 2-Day Course.

IAM-35 Refresher Course - Sunday April 22

If you have gotten irregular with your IAM practice or just want to strengthen it, then the Refresher Course is for you! At the Refresher you can ask questions, clarify and deepen your understanding of the technique, and be guided through the steps of practice. Many who have attended Refresher Courses have found that they gained a great intellectual and experiential boost to their IAM practice. You are also welcome to attend any or all of the IAM-35 class.
“Meditation is as precious as gold. Not a moment devoted to meditation ever goes to waste; rather it brings tenfold gain.” - Amma

Plastic Challenge
Wilma the Whale just did a spy-hop and guess what she found? Only 44 people in the PNW have entered their plastic footprint calculation and taken the pledge! You still have time to participate and enter your plastic footprint calculation and make a personal pledge that will be shown to Amma when She is here in June.
If you haven’t done so already, please take a moment to click the link below and calculate your ‘before’ footprint over the next 5 days. On April 20th, we will be recalculating our ‘after’ footprint and entering our progress. You can also make a pledge without doing the calculation.
Here is the link with all of the information:
I would love to include you in next month’s PNW newsletter and on the Green Friends website. Snap a photo of yourself, in action, reducing your plastic footprint (i.e. using a metal straw, carrying your own bag etc.) and email it to me with your name and where you’re from. You can also write a short blurb to go with it if you like and I will have it published on the GreenFriends FB page and the PNW GreenFriends Newsletter. If you are not subscribed to the newsletter it is wealth of wonderful information and inspiration. Email: to be added.
I am here to help! If you need assistance or have any questions please reach out to me by email at or my phone number is (408) 348-4776.
In Amma’s Service,
