For thousands of years, countless women and men have developed methods to optimize their minds and bodies––with the goal of achieving happiness and fulfillment in this lifetime. The American Meditation Institute’s Foundation Course is the only such program offered today. It presents practical modern day interpretations of the time-tested wisdom contained in the world’s oldest spiritual and meditation tradition.
The term “Yoga Science” describes AMI’s Foundation Course. This curriculum was developed and is taught at AMI by educator, philosopher and scientist Leonard Perlmutter (Ram Lev). It is a holistic program that incorporates mind/body medicine, AMI Meditation, meditation-in-action, easy-gentle yoga, breathing exercises, philosophy, and psychology. Each weekly lecture combines the best of ancient Eastern wisdom with the practicality of modern Western medical science.
Yoga Science begins with an understanding of the Four Functions of the Mind, as described in the book YOUR CONSCIENCE by Leonard Perlmutter (Ram Lev). When you understand how your mind works, you can begin to learn new habits that will lead to better health and more joy. You have unlimited wisdom and creativity at your core – you just need to learn a few tools to quiet the voices of the Ego, the Senses, and the Unconscious Mind in order to access this wisdom through your Conscience. Leonard shares his vast insights in the Foundation Course, and then supports you as you employ them in your daily life.
In your present situation, you are expected to successfully balance all your personal, professional and family responsibilities. In the process of doing so, you face many expectations and challenges. The Foundation Course will teach you how to transform the debilitating energy associated with the stresses and pressures we all are bound to encounter in life.
Since 2009, the Foundation Course has been accredited by the American Medical Association for continuing medical education credits, a status awarded only to those educational programs that meet the highest standards of professional review.
The skills taught in the Foundation Course are essential survival skills. You will learn a comprehensive set of daily self-care practices that can help you immediately reduce stress AND maintain and enhance your short-and long-term physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well being. By employing the tools you receive, you’ll be able to:
