Practical, experiential. Self knowledge is not a matter of speech but rather of practices that lead to experience our true Self. For this purpose we will use pranayamas, asanas, meditations, nature walks, dance, stories and games. All these integrated in the yogic tradition of Siddhas.
It is about learning by enjoying to finally attaining the True Enjoyment not dependent on the external events or on our internal states.
The persons who guide the process have the function of accompanying the teachers and instructors, and also the group of children, aiming to give their support through the practice and to share the experiences.
The learning of the Transcendence does not make use of words; it is an understanding of the Reality and as such it implies to face situations that would allow us to enter the experiences. It is a matter of catching and accessing the deeper structures of the Self.
The meetings represent a space created to research and explore the inner world, the world of the Self. Here children become explorers of the Self guided by the discoveries of the Siddhas on body, mind and consciousness.
Our work tools will be those discoveries made by the Siddhas about the Self and we will learn and experience with the help of the keys appropriate to reach the same state of profound Happiness and Bliss attained by them. Some examples of contents are detailed below:
- Who are the Siddhas? The thread of tradition. The Siddha family.

- Our mind: how does it work and how to be in control of it.
- Our emotions: how do they work and how to transcend them.
- How to keep the body as sound and healthy as an apple.
- The pathway: its elements: mantra, pranayama, concentration, asanas; their practice.
