What is a Nakshatra Mantra?

Nakshatra Mantra Meditation is a powerful practice for moving into the stillness and silence within. Your own personal Nakshatra comes from the name of the light from the star that heralded the moment when you passed from the unmanifest into the manifest – from stardust into birth.

It derives from the yogic tradition of India, which focuses on achieving a one-ness . . . unity . . . stillness . . . silence . . . bliss . . . no separation between anything . . . your pure unconditioned self.

How is this training scheduled?

During the 15 weeks leading up to graduation week, you will experience a one-on-one video call with davidji, weekly live video webinars in which you will interact with your fellow teachers in training, have continuous interaction with davidji, as well as new video and audio teachings each week. The final week of your training concludes with an intensive five-days in-residence with davidji and your fellow teachers-in-training. Together with davidji and your magnificent posse, you will individually and collectively peel away layers, absorb timeless wisdom, and awaken to your best versions.
