No. Meditation is for everyone. Religiosity is not a necessity in any regard to benefit from the AMS practices or any meditative practices. Nor is any certain philosophy or belief system required. AMS Meditation is available for all people, and anybody from any background can practice the techniques and benefit from them. We strongly believe that meditative practices can complement religion in a meaningful way, and can support spiritual unfoldment. If you are a Christian, meditation can help you become a better Christian. If you are a Muslim, become a better Muslim. If you are a Jew become a better Jew. Religion is just one aspect of life that a meditation practice can benefit.
