Teachings offered by Upasaka Culadasa

Ongoing Teacher Training Invitation

Culadasa will be starting a new Teacher Training Course in January 2019.

The Dedicated Practitioner Course (DPC) is now one of the prerequisites for the Teacher Training Course.  We are starting a new DPC in October 2018, and we are now accepting applications for this program. HERE

We will update this page when the application for the next Teacher Training Course is available.

Expectations of a student

Each class will be two hours in length.   (Arizona does not observe daylight savings time, so your local class time may change during the year.)
  • Commit to not missing more than one class in a row, and not more than two in any 6-month period.
