Online Spiritual Lifestyle Training

The Online Spiritual Lifestyle Training is meant for those who want to go deeper into the philosophy of Tantra Yoga and enhance their meditation practice and spiritual life. Our training compliments the free Online Meditation for Beginners we offer every Saturday morning, by offering those participants an additional monthly webinar and a book club meeting. Each month, you will have exclusive access to a new webinar on a fascinating spiritual topic and join a discussion on the books we assign.

Members of the Spiritual Lifestyle Training will get closer access to our Tantra Yoga instructors, some of whom have over 30 years of experience. Questions and help with meditation will be offered at each session.

Workstudy Programs

Are you interested in doing some service for our online community in exchange for the costs of our training? Service can include keeping track of attendance, helping at retreats, posting regular reminders, sharing our content with your friends, or any other skills you possess that may benefit our community. Opportunities for workstudy will be evaluated on case by case basis and will vary depending on availability.

Platforms

Live webinars and reading discussions will be conducted on Zoom. Using a platform like Zoom will give our meetings more of a conversational fee than in the Online Meditation for Beginners. Recordings of programs will be posted in the Spiritual Lifestyle Training private Facebook Group.
