Questions and Answers

Q: What are the Advanced Techniques Courses?
A: Michael Mamas is offering Advanced Techniques to those who have laid a foundation in the Transcendent with the Surya Ram Meditation. The Advanced Techniques Courses taken at Mount Soma will be structured similarly to other retreats, incorporating group talks, multiple meditation rounds, and optional events at Sri Somesvara Temple. The Advanced Techniques Remote Course has a series of videos to watch weekly and also includes two live streaming meetings with Michael Mamas.

With the Advanced Techniques, one’s meditation practice becomes truly delightful and fascinating. Says Michael Mamas, “All the different levels of existence and much more become accessible to you as the limitless fabric of the Transcendent integrates with your physiology on all levels of your being.”

Q: Where do these Advanced Techniques come from?
A: The techniques are found in the Vedic literature, but the understanding and translation of them has remained obscured. It is the Master, who lives this Knowledge from within his own being, who can understand and share this great treasure with others. Dr. Mamas found these techniques within himself, and they were then confirmed by Pandits and Vedic literature.

Q: Are these techniques unique?
A: Certainly there are Enlightened Masters tucked away in the caves of the Himalayas who know these techniques. However, we know of nowhere in the world, other than through Michael Mamas, where you can learn them.

Q: Who are the courses for? Are there any prerequisites?
A: If you have been practicing the Surya Ram Meditation regularly for at least a year, have learned the Sutras, and are ready to take your meditation to the next level, the Remote Advanced Techniques Course, Phase 1 is for you!

If you have completed the Phase 1 Course or are registering for the Remote Phase 1 Course, then you are eligible to register for Phase 2 summer or winter!

Q: Do I need to have learned the Sutras?
A: Yes. If you have not learned the Sutras and are interested in attending the next Advanced Techniques Course, contact us.

Q: If I have the Sutras, isn’t that enough?
A: The techniques taught in the Advanced Techniques Courses provide a bigger engine that propels you more quickly along the evolutionary path.

Q: What if my meditations aren’t very ‘good?’ For example, my mind is always wandering, or I’m not aware of anything. Am I ready for the Advanced Techniques Course Phase 1? Am I ready to move onto Phase 2?
A: Those experiences are normal in the proper practice of the Surya Ram Meditation. Remember that this meditation is both effortless and purifying. The Advanced Techniques help to cultivate a meditation experience that many might consider ‘good.’

Q: What is the price of the course?
A: Full information on pricing as well as course options can be found here.

Q: If I can’t make it this time around, may I take the course later?
A: At this point, we are not certain when that might happen. We suggest jumping in and joining the group now if at all possible. When it comes to meditation, there is power in numbers.

Catch the wave of these Advanced Techniques! They are awesome!
