Mysticism? Every person has this in him!
Do you ever think about life? The meaning of existence, what is my life’s task, why do I live? Or do you perhaps wonder; how can I live my life differently? Better? More meaningful? How can I contribute more to the world?
Then you may find answers and recognition in the Nâm Vision and the instruments of LivingNâm can help you forward.
LivingNâm is allowing ourselves to open to the mystical dimensions that are present in everyone. Allowing this brings joy and meaning to daily living conditions, even though they are sometimes difficult.
Two participants in September 2019:
“This weekend was a start with experiencing a greater awareness
It made me aware of my own responsibility and creative power that is constantly present”.
“Deepening. I can go a bit further on my way because the concept of creating has gained much more meaning”
LivingNâm helps you to find your inner compass
By consciously focusing attention on the Divine, our mystical, transcendental nature of life, something slowly changes in perception, or rather, perception changes color, as if light shines in a dark room. This is the age-old quest for a life in the Natural State, life as a Complete and Beautiful Human Being, a life lived in attunement.
LivingNâm, which has its origins in an age-old transcendental yoga, has instruments that give direction to perception in such a way that optimal well-being is the result.

Starters weekends: ‘Transforming daily life into a spiritual adventure’
We use starter weekends, these are weekends for people who come into contact with LivingNâm for the first time. During this course we use the book ‘Dimensions of Experience’ these weekends.
Follow-up weekends: ‘Living in ever wider circles of Awareness’
This course is for people who have already made acquaintance with LivingNâm through other activities provided by the Nâm Foundation or through the starters weekend. We use the book ‘Meaning & Joy of Nâm Yoga’ during this course.
The leading principles of LivingNâm
Finding our attunement in Nâm means:
Affirming ‘It is what it is’ in whatever form it (life) appears to us.
The affirmation of Nâm affirms and accepts. This only has meaning when it implies the attitude of acceptance in peace.
The Naming aspect of Nâm refers to the realisation that I am the creator of my world.
In Nâm we are the creators of our world and of ourselves in relationship to this world. In Nâm I am an ‘I-World’ in which the ‘sense of I’ and the ‘sense of World’ are inseparably connected and fundamentally one.
“Remember and Observe, these are the two guiding principles of the Nâm approach to human living. We should remember that we are of a oneness, the nature of which, as it is our nature, cannot be known by our thinking, which is one of the expressions of this oneness. Observe how everything that surrounds us, including our thoughts and our emotions, reflect this underlying oneness. Observe how, though we cannot know our essence, we can create our lives in accordance with this essence or in opposition to this essence. Observe how the former shapes Well-Being and the latter anxiety, disease, stress and failure. This is just an observation. “
The origin of LivingNâm
LivingNâm is an expression of a current of human thought that is often called the Abrahamic tradition. It is a current of thought that as far as we know originates in the general area of India and spread via Iran, with the Zoroastrian thought, via the various Greek and Egyptian schools of thought, to the general area of the Middle East. From there it is spread through Northern Africa and Spain, and in various ways it became what is called philosophy. Acedemic philosophy, however, is often not presenting it.
