Advanced Education: Teacher’s Trainings

Tantra teacher training course – TTTC

Benjamin Whichcote aptly said, “There is no better way to learn than to teach.” For many practitioners who are dedicated and passionate about walking the Tantric path, deepening their own practice through guiding and teaching others reveals itself to be the natural next step. Experiencing the numerous inestimable benefits and joys that this path has to offer first hand inspires many to pass these gifts on to others.

The Atman Federation offers the possibility to become a fully qualified Tantra teacher, and truly learn the art of teaching, through its highly comprehensive Tantra Teacher Training Course (TTTC). The TTTC was created and developed by Advaitananda and his wife Adina, inspired by their spiritual mentor Gregorian Bivolaru.

Course Details

Due to its structure, requirements and number of hours of training, the TTTC is the most in-depth course of its kind available worldwide. Consisting of eight modules of ten days each, spanning across four years of intense study and initiation, the TTTC is for serious practitioners who feel a vivid calling to deepen their own understanding about the Tantric system and wish to guide and inspire others on this sacred path of awakening.

PRE-REQUISITES

To apply for the TTTC you need to be enrolled in the Esoteric Tantra Course at one of the Atman Federation accredited schools, and be in the 2nd year or above. This assures that aspirants have already undergone extensive study and practice within the Tantric system and are at a level which is suitable for the advanced notions and intensity of the teacher training.

ENTRY EXAM

It is also necessary to sit an entrance exam to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the Tantra course before enrolling in the TTTC. The exam is held simultaneously in multiple countries, then a new group of successful applicants is formed to begin their training together a few months later.

CONTENT

The TTTC covers theoretical and practical subjects from the first five years of the Esoteric Tantra Course, with advanced supplementary course material, as well as important aspects about being a true teacher by becoming a genuine relay for universal principles, insight and knowledge. Special initiations are also given within the course.

Examinations, Graduation and Certification

After the completion of all eight modules, a final exam takes place. This exam includes several different categories of assessment, including a theoretical exam on all subjects covered in the TTTC, plus a practical exam. In order to be eligible for graduation, it is also necessary to submit an in-depth study project or thesis. The topics are chosen in the 2nd year of the TTTC.

Upon the successful completion of the TTTC, graduates will be formally certified to teach the Esoteric Tantra Course, offered by Atman – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation, throughout the world. A graduation ceremony is held where graduates receive their diplomas and spiritual investiture as teachers of this profound spiritual path.
