Each day will commence with the Traditional Wai Khruu and Reussi Datton (RDT), and will end in the same manner. Morning RDT will be Self massage and energizing exercises, evening RDT will be stretching and meditation and breathing. Wai Khruu involves giving respect and thanks to Buddha, Shivaka, Rishis, parents and teachers.

Teaching is more than sharing information, nearly all the information presented in this course has been obtained as part of Traditional way of teaching, involving long apprenticeships, learning Thai and Pali, understanding ancient texts, studying for years. The Traditional origins of this course place great emphasis on conduct and sincerity and Buddhist principles. The person charged with bringing this Teaching outside Thailand, has received the Ancient Texts and the Permission to teach. Students will be expected to behave in a respectful manner towards the information presented and the Tradition from which it comes. There is no claim to exclusivity, we are simply presenting the Ancient teachings and make no comment on alternative interpretations and sources. Knowledge comes when information is mixed with experience and experience is created by attitude and intention combined with practice.

Upon successful completion of the course students will receive a Certificate of Attendance issued by SOTHA and ITM Belgrade.

For logistical reasons a minimum of 10 students are required to hold the course.
