This foundational intensive is intended to familiarize students with the basic theory and practice of mantra meditation as a personal, spiritual path. The full intensive requires 12 hours to complete, divided into 4 sessions of three hours each. The sessions are usually spread out across three days, allowing for plenty of down time in between for students to integrate the energies they are working with. The structure of the sessions begins with the physical elements of mantra meditation, then progressing to the intellectual, the energetic and beyond. It is necessary for the intensive to occur in a specific order to allow the students to absorb both the information and the vibrations in the most logical manner. The full intensive of four sessions will provide everything that the student needs to have a functioning mantra practice.

The following is a general outline of the topics which will be covered in each session of the Level 1 Mantra Intensive:

Session 1. What is a mantra? Deities and Bodhisattvas, daily practice, using a mālā, chanting mantras for Gaṇeśa, Sarasvatī, and the Great Compassion mantra.

Session 2. Learning the Sanskrit alphabet and correct Sanskrit pronunciation, chanting mantras for Lakṣmī, Tārā, and Śiva.

Session 3. Lectures on the underlying theory behind mantra yoga, using information gained from texts of the yoga tradition as well as practical experience. Major topics include the nature of śakti (divine energy), prāna (life force) and kundalinī (evolutionary energy), a detailed examination of the cakra system and the relationship between that system and the Sanskrit language. Discussion and practice with bīja mantras (seed sounds) that encapsulate the basic vibrations of reality.

Session 4. Advanced topics in mantra yoga. Mantras in Buddhism. The Gāyatrī Mantra. How to develop a specific mantra sādhana to achieve a particular goal. The structure of deeper practices. Discussions about the students' personal practices with a Q & A session.
