REALIZATION

A personal journey to self realization.

About Level Three Program

“In Level Three, one becomes a teacher – a teacher of truth and spirit. You develop the ability to penetrate and communicate through your presence alone and uplift the students through your subtle body. This is the teacher of the Aquarian Age, the Aquarian Teacher. Students experience the truth within them through your intention, projection, and purity.” – Yogi Bhajan, 1996

In this third and final level that Yogi Bhajan gave, we refine our authentic identity as a Teacher and deepen our unique relationship to the Sacred. The KRI Level Three program is a personal journey to self-realization. It completes the Aquarian Teacher Training by cultivating our true identity as teachers through meditative experience, spiritual maturity and serving others.

The foundational elements of Level Three take place over 1,000 days. In this time, one commits to developing a deep meditative practice through personal and group meditation, meeting regularly with their peer group to give and receive support, and creating a Seva Legacy project comprised of their life’s passion and service. Additionally, one commits to attending the Mela, a gathering for Level Three participants to be and share together in person. All of which contributes to one’s development as a Teacher.

Level Three Program

The program focuses on the three qualities of a Spiritual Teacher: Spiritual Maturity, Meditative Mind and Seva. These qualities are intended to be cultivated and interwoven in all three levels of teacher training. However, it is in Level Three that we experience their integration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Level Three FAQ's

May I switch Mela locations from year to year?

No, you will need to pick one location and continue going to the same location each year. During your first year, you’ll join a peer group with people in the same cohort and location. Throughout the years you will need to have long distance peer group meetings as well as face to face discussions with these same people. The face to face discussions will most likely happen at the Mela each year. Therefore, you will need to return to same Mela location.

What is the primary language spoke at the Melas?

At this point, English is the primary language spoken by the facilitators at the Mela in United States and in Europe. You are welcome to organize your own translator, if necessary. When peer groups are formed, we do our best to match common languages to make it easier for participants.

The Level Three Mela in Latin America is in Spanish and Portuguese. 

What happen if I do not attend three Melas inn 4 years or 1,000 days?

To receive a Level Three graduate certificate you must attend three Melas. This can happen over more than 1,000 days. It is encouraged that the third Mela one attends be for graduation.

Is it possible to finish the Level Three program between Melas?

Yes, it is possible to finish between Melas and receive your graduation certificate via mail. One does not have to attend a graduation ceremony to earn their certificate.

If part of the peer group graduates, what happens to the remaining members?

Peers in a peer group do not have to graduate at the same time. We hope that your group will choose to stay together and keep meeting at least until everyone has graduated. If some members of your peer group graduate and choose not to continue, please let KRI (via levelthree@kriteachings.org) know and we’ll work with you about how to move forward.

When I am Level Three certified, will I be able to run a Level Three program?

No, just as when you are Level One certified you cannot teach a Level One training. Similarly, when you are Level Two certified you cannot teach a Level Two module. The same is for Level Three.
