We seek for wisdom not in sense experience at all, but in that other way of knowing whatever called, in which the mind is alone and engaged in being. -Plato
Prajña is a knowledge that does not come from what we read or take in with our senses; it’s the possibility of another higher knowledge capable of confirming the teachings through direct experience.
These mentorship programs aim to support teachers synthesize the knowledge they attained in prior training by developing a greater commitment to svadyaya or self study. Our goal is to guide teachers to expand and cultivate their own self knowledge, to be better practitioners and teachers. After a 200 or 500 hour program, we tend to lose the sangha community we built during our training. When we lose our support at times we become less stimulated or uninspired or, we are just unsure how to digest all the information and bring into our lives.
When we stop learning as an educator, we are missing something, when we create community and begin to intelligently discuss our role as a teacher, we not only fulfill our purpose. This program was developed to keep teachers learning, and when we learn and are inspired, our students, also learn are inspired and thrive.
The mentorship program is committed to developing your skills as a student which in turn make you a better more qualified and refined teacher. We should remember that the goal of yoga and our responsibility as yoga teachers is to lead students to living a more healthy, joyful life, not only with how we conduct our classes but how we lead our own lives.
The classes will offer creative ways of assimilating previously learned information including, writing exercises, journaling, experiential practices and contemplation.
Chanti’s passion is to inspire students to rediscover their creative self through personal inquiry, effortlessness, ritual, sangha and sadhana.
