About This Training:

Overview

Our Vision

Imagine a life free from pain and sorrow, and infused with joy and tranquility. The ancient yogis called this state vishoka, and insisted that we all can reach it. Vishoka Meditation is a comprehensive system of meditation designed to help us reach this experience.

The heart of Vishoka Meditation is a technique that is spiritually-grounded, yet highly systematic and experiential. But Vishoka Meditation is more than technique—it is a living practice supported by a rich body of wisdom, refined over countless generations.

The Vishoka Meditation Teacher Training certification program was created to share the practice of Vishoka Meditation far and wide. We believe meditation is a powerful force for positive change.

If you’re passionate about changing the world, and are a yoga teacher or advanced yoga practitioner interested in sharing meditation with your students and community, this meditation certification program is perfect for you.

About the Tradition of Vishoka Meditation

Vishoka Meditation is grounded in the authentic wisdom of ancient, yet living, tradition embodied by luminaries including Buddha, Patanjali, and a long line of Siddha masters. Drawing upon both yoga and tantra, Vishoka Meditation shares the essence of ancient source texts including the Yoga Sutra, Lotus Sutra and Shiva Sutra.

Passed down for thousands of years, the practice of Vishoka Meditation was distilled for the 21st century practitioner by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD, a modern-day master, spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute, and successor to Swami Rama of the Himalayas.

Vishoka Meditation is the culmination of decades of work by the Himalayan Institute to bring the Himalayan Tradition’s deeper teachings of meditation to the West. This system of meditation is fully grounded in the eight limbs of yoga, and further enriched by essential teachings of tantra and yoga lifestyle.

Testimonials

All of the preparatory practices which led to Vishoka have been transformative for my personal practice. I have been meditating for over a decade and in the past few weeks, I have slowed down and opened to the beauty that lies in effortlessness. I loved the simplicity and it has given me new confidence to just teach!

— Leah K.

As someone who has been meditating for years with a different inner experience, feeling the fullness and richness of Vishoka Meditation makes daily practice a joy. Vishoka Meditation is by far the very best system of meditation I’ve ever experienced. I could feel the difference as soon as I began practicing.

— Rita S.

I realized about halfway through the course that this is the real deal. I believe Vishoka crosses all spiritual traditions throughout history and throughout the world. The master teachers of this course were terrific guides in the art of teaching meditation, but the true teacher was the practice of the Vishoka technique itself.

— Janese K.
