– The Luminary Courses at Blooming Lotus Yoga –
Joining us for another YTT is a wonderful opportunity to go deeper in sadhana and yogic knowledge (vidya). It is a precious time to spend with your teachers, other students (sangha or community), and the Way of Yoga Dharma.
Here in Bali we have a beautiful and serene environment supported by nature and the pure-hearted Balinese. However, we are limited in the number of Luminaries (return grad students) we can invite per YTT program, and as a result need to have an application process from which we will select our return Luminaries for each program. We ask that each student read carefully the following information on the essence of the program, as a Luminary (return graduate student), with all the details and expectations to follow.
Please make sure to apply only if you are serious about attending, as a lot of work is involved in offering this service at no-cost to our return students.
As such, please spend some focused time, in a calm environment, reading the following and filling out your application form with all the relevant details asked for, so that we may assess if this is in alignment for us all.
This is a rare time for us to take in our life to deepen our connection inside, spend time with our teachers and like-minded students, and be devoted to sadhana (spiritual practices) and higher learning (vidya). We recommend that you seize this opportunity like a fish out of water jumping back to the ocean to return home. As such, we invite you to take part in as much of the program as possible- with the greatest importance placed on our meditation sessions. This is a gift to our students – our Luminaries – and as such we don’t require any tuition. We simply ask that if during your time with us, and if possible beforehand, you can contribute to the world with some SEVA (self-less service). This SEVA may entail such projects as helping with the transcription of and organization of the teachings of the great Masters – or helping to further develop yogic resources, and other dharmic activity related to our publications – the “Blooming Lotus Press”. In this way, we ask that each return student -Luminary – bring his/her own computer and USB or hard drive to Bali if possible.
We will also be able to offer our Luminaries the opportunity to join us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the low cost of $17/day for all 3 meals. All meals will be organic vegetarian – with the opportunity to eat vegan if you give us prior notice. This is by far one of the best deals in terms of food/costs that you can find and we highly recommend this option unless you are already living in Bali and have a kitchen, and have sourced out your grocery options. Eating together with the other students – your sangha/community – provides you with an opportunity to connect with each other and spread more love.
