Contemporary scientific research has proven the value of mindfulness and related practices, and these trainings have now spread widely in medicine, education, mental health, business, athletics, and the arts.

Professionals and everyday people are using meditation as a key strategy to maximize our human potential.

To meet the steady increase in popular interest, there is a growing need for mature, dedicated teachers from all parts of the world who can offer these practices with clarity and wisdom.

This is going to be an extraordinary training and experience. By doing your own meditation work and then by helping others do the same you will be making a significant contribution to the evolution of your own being as well as helping shift the consciousness of humanity to a wiser and more compassionate level.

This program is open and welcoming to people of all racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds, as well as sexual orientations and gender identities.

Our Training

The core of the training is the cultivation of mindfulness, the capacity to meet life moment to moment with open-hearted presence. In the deep inner and outer silence of our weekend, participants cultivate an integrated body-mind practice that encourages awakening on every level of being, including the physical, energetic, emotional, and interpersonal dimensions. 

The meditation teacher training curriculum includes understanding the transformational principles underlying meditation, exploring the interface of meditation with western psychology and cutting-edge science, developing teaching skills, and receiving guidance on how to establish classes and workshops.
