Heartfulness trainers are themselves practitioners on the path who have voluntarily taken up the duty of training others in the practices of Heartfulness and by imparting yogic Transmission. To be a trainer is not a profession. Trainers are volunteers who earn their livelihood through other means; rather, to be a trainer is a vocation. They are enabled to impart Transmission by a yogi or guide of caliber – a personality who is dissolved in the Source to such an extent that they can distil its essence and transmit it to others. The trainers then become conduits for that Transmission, which they freely impart to all who wish to receive it.
