Meditation is more popular than ever, it can easily be called a global trend – the availability of mindfulness apps, -websites, books, podcasts and meditation-courses is booming. But unfortunately often only little remains of the original idea.


This seminar is primarily dedicated to the question:

What is meditation – and what it is not?


In particular, this seminar is about the teaching of “Individual Meditation (IM)”.

IM is a teaching based on scientific evidence which focuses on the maintenance and development of mind-functions. The decline of mind-functions through aging that normally occurs can be reversed through the application and practice of this teaching. IM enables everyone to create the best version of themselves. The implementation of this personal development is based on the so-called 5 factors for a good life.

The origins of Individual Meditation are rooted in the 9th century AD in Tibet. Since then the teaching has been continuously passed on from one lineage-holder to the next. In the course of the last 12 centuries these masters of meditation completed and developed the teaching further and further, in order to let people develop themselves through its practice into their own best version.

The current lineage-holder and master of meditation is Milenko Vlajkov. In the 1970s the teaching was taught and passed onto by a Tibetan doctor and rinpoche. Since then he has accomplished to wrap the Eastern wisdom into a western scientific dress, underpinned by the many results of scientific research of recent years.


Milenko Vlajkov has written several books about meditation and personal development.
