Our approach

school for meditation approach

The orientation and mood of the school for meditation is to include all meditations, all religions, all people. There is no one meditation or technique better or more powerful then the next.

Our meditation curriculum teaches a two part approach to going within that places emphasis on helping the meditation student overcome discouragement and misunderstandings.

The lessons begin with a pre-meditation clearing that includes releasing tensions and emotions from the day, as well as a way to quiet your thoughts so you are less distracted by your mind when you meditate. This helps you become open, focused, and ready to be guided from within when you meditate. It prepares you for using the next lessons that help you learn to trust an inner pull that does not come from you mind, but comes from your deeper soul part when you meditate.

One benefit of our approach at the school for meditation is that you can use the pre-meditation clearing in conjunction with other forms of meditation, which is one reason our training is very good for meditation instructors that are looking for continued education or certification. 

Background

Beneath our personalities and our minds, a deeper part within us seeks a greater sense of inter-relatedness and connection. Life is one thing after another, and our attentions are most always on things that are outside of us. Then we get curious and we start wanting to know what more there is than, things. We eventually find our way to meditation.  

We know deep down that there is more going on within us, and with life itself than meets the eye. We yearn to be moved, to be touched, to be graced with a deeper connection to spirit, and to something more profound than all of the thoughts and actions that define who we think we are.

We know that if we want to connect more to the true reality that is, then we need to interrupt the chain of doing and thinking that we live in most of the time. Meditation slows us down enough to find that which we seek, yet too often people give up on their meditation practice because of some basic misunderstandings about going within and discouragement about the practice producing results. Meditation has many faces and is more encompassing of purpose than we commonly think. It can be a practice to relax or a way to enlightenment, and most people if they have any trouble at all with meditation say the following;

“I can’t find the time”,

“I can’t quiet my mind or my senses”,

“I follow the instructions but nothing happens.”

At the school for meditation we like to support you to not stop or slow down when encountering the multitude of obstacles that arise in your meditations. We believe everyone can succeed in the practice of going within!

My name is Rose. I have lived out of a suitcase for the last 25 years. Not because I was homeless. I was on a journey around the world looking for Home. Home of the truth, the love and feeling of belonging, fulfillment and connection that I know was inside of me but could only feel short moments in time and then for it to disappear again.

This drove me crazy. So much so, that I was not going to stop till I could stay in the love and light..."I wanted the whole "lot", whatever it took".

Along that journey there were two things that crossed my path that I am tremendously grateful for to this day and led me to a life of daily meditation and communion.

1. I was 29 years old. It was a rainy evening. I had nothing better to do so I went to a lecture at the Holiday-Inn hotel. This lecture was about ultimate spiritual freedom. Her name was Kalindi. She is a modern-day master. She beckoned all of the people there to join her for a 10-day Intensive. And she promised it would be "everything" we have been waiting for. She talked about God a lot which pushed my buttons right, left and center. But something inside of me whispered: "I have to go do this thing".

Within 2 weeks I hopped on a plane to San Diego and joined Kalindi for this Intensive with 11 fellow participants.   read more...

Hi, my name is Ian. I am Rose's life partner and co-founder of the school for meditation. We live in Andalusia, Spain where we are building a meditation retreat called the "Secret Garden". You could say that this is the "home on earth" for the school for meditation, besides it being online available to the whole world.

As this world seems to become more and more crazier with the day our goal is to create a self sustaining farm and offer people to be part of it by visiting the retreat and/or participating in one of the meditation retreats being offered.

Personally, I am putting my heart and soul in this retreat and the school for meditation. I deeply dislike the illusion; the lies, the deceit and the things done in the name of truth but are born in untruth. I am passionate about meditation because for me IT IS the way out of the illusion. It is in my meditations where I find ways to let go and fill myself with the energy, love and presence to God - my savior, which I have come to know to be The Way.

One of the quotes from Gourasana close to my heart:

The only way out of the illusion

is to fill yourself with the presence of God

"I am looking forward to meet you at the school for meditation or maybe welcome you someday in the Secret Garden.

Until then....I wish you all the best on your journeys within."

...These other participants had a lot going for them in their lives...so I thought, I am in the right place.

Kalindi, thank God, was relentless. She said: "Do you want the truth and nothing but the truth?...meaning Truth with the capital "T"?" I said yes before my fear was grabbing hold in my throat and the roller coaster began.

To get to the heart of the matter; Kalindi shed light on many of the areas where I was not in the truth, not connected, I guess you could say in darkness. The main challenge for me was how I was confronted with the endless spiritual concepts and beliefs I had taken on, in the last 10 years of being a spiritual seeker.

I was guided through a dark tunnel, the one I knew I have been avoiding for so long. And at the end of the tunnel was light. A light that I know I have been longing for...for lifetimes.

2. As I moved towards that Light...to my greatest surprise, I ended up at the feet of my Father...our heavenly Father, not my earthly father. It was the most perfect, beautiful and complete love I had ever experienced. I trusted and wanted more so I crawled up in His lap. I stayed in His lap for a time that felt like eternity.

After this experience I dropped on my knees and heard myself say;" Oh my God!"...Kalindi looked at me with eyes of unconditional love and knodded her head. She told me to stay quiet, close my eyes and savor it, cherish it; "this is yours and no one else's - you worked hard for it."

I remember my mind was startled as I was not looking for God. I had so many feelings about God. It took me some years after that to understand that most of the feelings of not wanting to name God with God is because of what the world has done in the name of God and to God.

Kalindi has been my spiritual teacher and master for the last 22 years as I continued my journey into the greatest mystery's of God. Her beckoning never ceased:

Come into the Light

Stay in the Light

Meditation has been and continues to the be the daily, main and chief ingredient of my journey into to the light and to come to a place where I am able to stay in the Light.

In order to find the greatest benefits possible in my meditation work I had to also become of the many concepts and beliefs I had about going within and the transformational movement.

This website is me, and my friends that I have gotten to know along the way, sharing this journey with you and all the things I have learned about meditation.

Because through and in meditation you can tap into a power that can:

  • Transform you
  • Heal you
  • Connect you to your True Self
  • Connect you to God...or however you like to name the Source
  • Free you of all the things that are binding you
  • Give you all the answers you need and you are looking for
  • Fill you so you can fulfill your life purpose

I named this site school for meditation, because this is how I would like a school to feel like in this world; Open, simple, professional and completely focused on people. People that want to learn, share, give and have the desire to be the change in this world.

Go within and make a difference!

"I am looking forward to getting to know you and walk our journeys together!"
