"Caught up in the whirl of London life, I had been slacking with my sadhana somewhat and really feeling the effects. So I was very pleased to receive a call from Mike, asking me to help out at the IAM course on 12 December in Oxford. I felt that it was Amma herself reminding me of my spiritual practices and calling me to reconnect with my Self.
"Almost 30 people attended from all over the UK. It was lovely to see Amma's smiling face [in photos] as I walked through the doors of the Sandhills community centre, welcoming me back. Apart from doing seva, I had the opportunity to attend the IAM course, which was a welcome refresher. In particular I enjoyed Mike's style of teaching. Some of the attendees had met Amma recently at Alexandra Palace, but some still had not met her but felt inspired by her all the same. Her books sold very well in particular. Everyone I spoke to found the course to be very beneficial and insightful and were keen to incorporate it in to their daily lives. Most were captivated by Amma's teachings and stayed for bhajans, which were shared with several other devotees. It was then time to clear up the hall, until next time. We said our farewells and headed to the outside world, where I personally made my commitment to get up earlier to practise my IAM meditation and restore my balance and inner peace in the material world." - Lindsey Spinks
London February 2009 IAM Course: ReportThirty-three participants braved the icy weather to attend the Spring one-day IAM course at Scout Park in Muswell Hill. Some came from afar, including two Amma organisers from Hungary who flew in to learn the technique. Feedback on the course included the comments below:
IAM Technique Transforming Incarcerated Juveniles5 January 2007 — Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA
"I asked one of the Detention Center's staff members whether he thought that the meditation was having any positive effects on the juveniles. He replied, 'several of the boys in the class had been released from the facility recently... their releases are related to meditation.' He further said he could see a difference in the behavior of the boys who were meditating, they were more peaceful."
Account of the first non-residential IAM - Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique® course9-10 December 2006
'The University of Roehampton's Digby Stuart College was the venue for the first non-residential IAM - Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique® training course in the UK on 9 and 10 December. We were welcomed by the college's Roman Catholic Chaplain, Rev. Robert Kaggwa who showed a keen interest in Amma and the meditation course and insisted that we hold the teaching in the main chapel itself and not in the parlour as had been originally arranged.
This larger space allowed for more people to attend, and about 40 people enrolled for the weekend course, some coming from hundreds of miles away. One participant, who had been on a waiting list, travelled by bus, train and tube for over 6 hours to attend!
The lunch and refreshments, book shop and registration was managed by a handful of dedicated Amma-children. Thanks to them, the course went smoothly, including the actual teaching. Amma's Grace was so prevalent that it did not seem to matter who were the teachers, the teaching just happened. The new English bhajan "Hail to your Glory, my Lord and my King" seemed apt for the sacred venue, and all joined in clapping hands and singing loudly during the evening bhajans.'
