IAM® Integrated Amrita Meditation
A powerful practice suitable for all people that integrates body, breath, and mind.
The IAM® – Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique, is a short and simple approach to meditation that anyone can learn. Versions of this meditation technique have been taught to thousands of people worldwide, many of whom have been given instruction in company or organization-sponsored classes. The technique was developed by world-renowned humanitarian, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi, who is also known to many affectionately as ‘Amma’.
Some of the benefits of IAM® – Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique, when practiced regularly, are greater calmness and sense of peace, as well as better decision-making and productive use of time. People who have been practicing the meditation regularly report other benefits such as greater mental focus and more energy. In some cases, participants initially do not notice any changes, but are informed by relatives and associates that a change for the better has occurred. In addition, in a recent study at Yale University, it was discovered that meditators developed extra gray matter in the brain, giving them greater concentration and more stable emotions.
IAM® – Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique is different and effective because it combines the best steps and methods from other meditation techniques, organized in a logical way, to accelerate a practitioner’s transition to a more complete state of peace and calm. And the steps are simpler and shorter than many other well-known techniques, taking approximately 20-25 minutes to practice.
The IAM® meditation technique is called ‘Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique’® because its goal is the integration of body, breath, and mind. It is a combination of Relaxing yogic stretches, breathing and concentration exercises and takes only 20 minutes a day. IAM® is a suitable practice for people of all faiths; it is not bound to any religious or spiritual belief system.
