 for details.

The meditation practice has a number of stages to help gradually train the mind and the full course takes 6-9 months to complete. Besides the meditation technique some theory to support the development of the practice is also taught. A particular feature of this form of meditation practice is regular one-to-one meetings with the teacher to discuss individual practice and so aid progress.
