This project – Supporting Acarya Training, is an idea that Baba gave to me. Its something positive for AM that I can do, and invite others to participate in. Baba says, if you think of something good, do it immediately, don’t put it off. So, thats what I am doing, taking action.
My vision is the development of a curriculum for Acarya training that is practical, comprehensive, and properly prepares trainee for the life of being an acarya. I think this will contribute to the wellbeing of workers in the field, the health of their projects, the impact on margiis, and on AM as a whole.
My motivation stems from several sources.
- I am quite passionate about education – I founded a post graduate school which trained Gestalt therapists over a 4 year period.
- I see acaryas struggle because they have not been properly prepared by their training
- I think that one significant element of an improvement in the quality of operation of AM is the knowledge and skill of acaryas, in their position of leadership.
- I think that given the current troubles, we need as many positive projects as possible, which can bring people together in the common interest of the development of AM
I am not aligned with any particular AM organisation. Thats a political position in itself, I am well aware of. But I have little time or interest for the various politics within AM. My focus is practical, and I look for places to make a positive contribution. So don’t try to look further for any political agendas in this project. My agenda is clear – the improvement of acarya education. My bias comes from the fact I have been a therapist for three decades.
I have been a margii for four decades, so I have seen many stages of the organisation. I am still a margii because I love Baba, love the ideology, and believe that it is an important contribution to humanity.
Thats enough about me. Over to you.
