This training addresses three fundamental dimensions of change:
- change in the vitality, character, and consciousness of individuals
- change in the value base of society
- change in social systems
For transforming individuals, this program emphasizes meditation, vitalizing yogic lifestyle, practices, supportive community, and perennial ethical practices.
For transforming social values, this program introduces neohumanism, a philosophy and way of life that nurtures unity by honoring the diversity and inter-dependent wholeness of being, both human and ecological.
For transforming the society, this program presents a social vision that promotes sustainability, resilience, bio-equality, cooperation, social equity, and collaborative community planning.
Each of these three dimensions of change can later be pursued as an area of focus. But as an introduction to all of them, our Transformational Training is a foundation that prepares participants with a holistic vision of transformation, an experience of vitalizing personal practices, an exposure to uplifting community, and an inner expansion of consciousness.
Participants come out of the foundational training with a solidified and empowering integration of their whole being, and with a refined vision of their place and their work in the world.
From this base, participants can go on to take more advanced trainings that specialize in becoming proficient in the following areas:
• Meditation Teacher
• Neohumanism / New Value Base for Society
• Progressive Utilization Theory (PROUT) / New Social Vision for Society
This training is led by a community of trainers, each of which brings unique and valuable knowledge and skills to share, and all of whom have had extensive experience teaching and working together in a coordinated training team.
The lead trainer will be Ravi Logan. He has led Yoga Teachers Training, Yoga Life Training, Dharma Training, and Meditation Teachers Training programs.
He is the editor of the Ananda Seva Meditation Teachers Training Manual; compiler of the Ananda Marga Philosophy Self Study Program; and author of the Ananda Sutram Primer.
Ravi Logan – Ravi’s yoga practice spans 49 years. He’s traveled eight times to India for trainings and pilgrimages, and lectured and taught internationally, including in Jamaica, Russia, Korea, India, Philippines, Europe, and Cyprus.
In 2002 he founded and has served as program director for the Dharmalaya Center, recognized as an important spiritual and community center in Eugene, Oregon.
