Virtual IAM Meditation Sessions
June 2020
Aum Amriteswaryai Namaha
Thank you to all who participated in the online IAM Survey! Based on the results, the PNW IAM Team is providing several options during June at a variety of timings and days. Our aim is to support you getting up and running or back on track with your meditation practice.
People ask, ‘Which Virtual IAM Session is right for me?’ Below are the ABC’s of choosing a session at this time.
Option A: GUIDED
GUIDED IAM sessions are intended for IAM graduates who have already completed the Course and seek support in their practice by meditating in a group. The steps of the technique are verbally guided and there is an opportunity for extended silent meditation together.
If you have gotten inconsistent in your IAM practice, cannot remember all the steps or have questions, then a REFRESHER IAM session is for you. It starts with a guided practice and is followed by time for questions or reviewing handouts and practice tips.
If you can’t remember much of the technique or it has been a long time since you practiced or took the class, it’s best to just retake the Full IAM Course. If you are new to IAM, this is your option, too. Amma has given us two versions of the technique: IAM-20 (a 3hr class) and IAM-35 (an 8 hr class). Consider the descriptions below and choose according to your preferences.
All sessions will be presented via Zoom. Connect with your computer or use the phone in option. Everyone welcome!
