Practising spirituality alone is tough. We read & meditate yet feel insufficient. Build a sangha, your community, to practice & transform.
Self-Transformation Practice Lab is a peer-led learning space where (1) we apply spirituality in life, (2) learn by doing and not by theory, (3) use the power of community to accelerate our progress. Do not struggle alone, let us thrive together. Join us, create your lab.
If you have been aspiring to work on a dimension of your life, be it food or developing equanimity, but struggling to make it happen.
If you are a young seeker of integral yoga or integral education, have been thirsting for a community & aspiring to facilitate integrally.
If you have done many self-development retreats & been listening to spiritual talks, yet haven't been able to bring change in everyday life.
Often spiritual practices - sadhana - are treated as separate from everyday life activities. This fragments life but an integral approach can help us to transform any activity of life into a means to spiritual progress when done in the spirit of karma yoga.
Move from struggling alone to growing with a conscious community. For 100s of aspirants, we have seen when we practice with a community, we are able to accomplish what we are unable to do alone. This grows manifold when we lead a community. You will learn to lead one.
We all know "to teach is to learn twice", but often we do not teach, for we feel inadequate. We miss out on a transformative opportunity. Not anymore. You need not be an expert to facilitate. If you are a sincere seeker, that is enough. The course will equip you to facilitate.
Often we know the right practices to do, but we fail to bring them into everyday life. In this course, you will bridge the gap between what you know & what you do. Start with something small based on your strength & launch a practice lab to begin actively learning with a sangha.
