Many of these pieces of assessment will be delivered during your training, however you do have a total of 6 months to complete all of your assessment.


This course requires you to bring Mala Beads.

These are an incredible investment to support your spiritual practice. If you don't have any, I highly recommend https://www.mirabaimalas.com/ as they are made in the motherland, India and every sale supports those less fortunate.
