What We Do

The IAM® - Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique is a short and simple approach to meditation that anyone can learn. It's a powerful way to reconnect with our real center and thereby experience true joy and peace in life. Born out of Amma's deep resolve for our spiritual enhancement, this technique, when practiced with dedication, is designed to bring integration into our lives - an integration of body, mind, intellect and heart.

It is taught for free by trained volunteers during retreats and throughout the year at many locations. It consists of energizing exercises, or yogic postures, followed by meditation. The technique integrates movement, breath, sound and visualization.

Versions have been taught to thousands of people worldwide, many of whom have been given instruction in company or organization-sponsored classes, such as: the Indian Army, Navy, and Paramilitary; Whole Foods Corporation; Genentech, USA; State University of New York; and the Juvenile Detention Center, Santa Fe, NM.

Currently, there are four versions of IAM-35: a 35 minute practice; IAM-20, a 20 minute practice; Youth, ages 15-18; and Youth, ages 10-14.

Refresher Classes & Guided Group Meditation

Guided Meditationa takes 45 mins to an hour. Participants who have already taken the IAM-35 or IAM-20 courses are verbally guided through the relaxation exercises and sitting meditation steps. People get to practice the meditation together as a group. There is no teaching or Q&A. Guided meditation helps to deepen and support an individual's daily practice, as meditation in a group is beneficial for all who participate.

The IAM-35 Refresher is 1 - 2 hours long, and the IAM-20 Refresher is around an hour. An IAM Instructor will go over benefits, review the exercises and meditation steps, see how everyone's practice is going, if there are any obstacles being experienced, and answer questions. Then, there will be a guided meditation as part of the refresher. It is a "teaching" format for those who have newly taken the course, or for those whose meditation may have fallen away, to reinforce the practice. We recommend refreshers to everyone to support them in developing their own personal daily practice.
