– Empower your Mind Exploring how to Customise Dhyāna
This page introduces the Art of Application of Dhyāna Modular Workshop Student Study Programme. As the student progresses through the interlinked and developmental Modules they will experience in-depth learning in all areas of Dhyāna practice and Dhyāna study theory.
Together these Modules will initiate and empower the student in the arts of learning to skilfully work with the principles that underpin creating and sustaining a personalised Dhyāna practice. The outcome will be the ability to independently and intelligently choose, adapt and ultimately self-develop and self-refine our personal Dhyāna Sādhana in the fields of Dhyāna practice and Dhyāna study theory.
