In the spirit of a phenomenological attitude and in peaceful acknowledgement of ‘What Is’, the Nâm Academy studies subjects of relevance to, what is called, optimal living. The formulation of Nâm Thinking has its source in the oeuvre of the hermit, contemporary thinker and mystic, Yoginâm.

As a platform the Nâm Academy is uniquely positioned since it enjoys the possibility for direct dialogue with Yoginâm.

The Nâm Academy explores the vantage point that the human being is by nature transcendental: i.e. an expression of Awareness, as amalgamation of Experience, sharing in infinite Resonance. From this perspective, a natural development from infancy towards spiritual maturity, from a state of ignorance to Wisdom, would result in Well-Being.

Could this be the backbone for a healthy social and psychological environment?
