For thousands of years, human beings have practiced refined techniques of mental focusing designed to change the habitual conditioning of the mind. Central to many spiritual, philosophical and religious traditions, the practice of meditation, is considered a powerful means for enhancing health, happiness and spiritual fulfillment.
In recent decades, modern science has dramatically confirmed what meditators have long known through their personal experience—that meditation, practiced under the guidance of a competent teacher (representing a time-tested lineage) offers deep and lasting benefits for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Now, through the gift of modern technology, Leonard Perlmutter’s new online meditation course, Comprehensive Meditation and Easy-Gentle Yoga, brings to you his comprehensive training in the world’s oldest and most effective holistic mind/body medicine.
Acclaimed author, philosopher and founder of the American Meditation Institute, Leonard Perlmutter (Ram Lev), is a direct disciple of Swami Rama of the Himalayas––the holistic medicine pioneer who, in laboratory conditions at the Menninger Institute, demonstrated that blood pressure, heart rate and the autonomic nervous system can be voluntarily controlled. According to Leonard, “The essence of what Swami Rama taught me, what I have practiced for 37 years, and the core curriculum that I teach today, are contained in this new online meditation course. Comprehensive Meditation and Easy-Gentle Yoga is an homage to my spiritual master and the 5,000 year old lineage of Yoga Science.”
In 2009, in support of the American Meditation Institute’s continuing medical education accreditation for physicians (through the Albany Medical College and the American Medical Association), AMI conducted a retrospective case study of participants who completed the same curriculum offered in Comprehensive Meditation and Easy-Gentle Yoga.
The findings of this study were impressive. The tools and practices learned led to the following positive and reproducible, long-term health-promoting changes:
