Subject: Buddhist traditions-question - and meditation

I have read on the web site for the Danish Buddhist Center in Copenhagen that they belong to the Diamond Way Buddhism, and they also explain that there are three different ways, namely the Small Way, The Great Way, and The Diamond Way (http://www.buddha-kbh.dk/eng/main.php). Are these ways the same as the following (I quote from Thich Nhat Hahn's Cultivating the Mind of Love (p. 97))"the way of the shravakas (disciples), the way of the pratyekabuddhas (self-enlightened ones), and the way of the bodhisattvas."?
And what about their meditation practise, it also seems that there are differences in the ways that you meditate?
Well, I haven't learned how to meditate yet (for economical reasons) but now I have a chance to learn some basic techniques at a two days-course in yoga, meditation, and relaxation, that I am registered for, in two weeks time. This course has nothing to do with Buddhism, the meditation technique is called Antar Mouna/Inner Silence. Is this technique as good as the Buddhist-specified techniques? That is, can I keep using this meditation in my quest for becoming a Buddhist?
I guess that I am mostly interested in the Mahayana-tradition.

Thank you in advance!

Happy Sunday,
Camilla
