One week intensive training in the Himalayas
Why an intensive training
The principles of the path of pure love are very simple to understand but extremely difficult to practice for the souls immersed in the many illusions of our modern lives.
In a few days in a proper environment we can achieve what will usually take years or lifetimes in ordinary circumstances.
The basic principle of Prema-Yoga is that pure love can be obtained by a process. This process is based on the practice, knowledge, experience and realisations of thousands of great teachers who have trained millions of people to feel the incomparable bliss that divine love brings in our lives.
That process can be learned and experience by any human beings. It does not require any machinery or any expensive paraphanelia. It mainly requires to acquire a higher level of awareness and consciousness.
There are many stumbling blocks that stops us to to acquire that higher level of consciousness. Without proper guidance we cannot see them or eliminate them. We mostly mistake the obstacle to be the goal.
In an intensive training session we can learn ways to avoid the stumbling blocks and increase our awareness by ourselves at at our own speed. It is similar to learning to drive a bicycle: once we have learned to go straight without falling there is no limit to were we can explore
