School Info

Science-minded, heart-centered meditation instruction for navigating everyday life in peace.

To develop our Meditation Teacher Training, we have interviewed studios, organizations and academic institutions to find out what they're looking for when hiring a meditation teacher. We have a diverse Advisory Board, with each mentor bringing their unique expertise to our curriculum. We have also researched the specific mindfulness skills that would benefit helping professionals who are hoping to add meditation to their toolbox.

Our convenient, affordable course provides you with expertise in the top fields of meditation, including neuroplasticity, mindfulness-based stress reduction, Buddhist meditation and Vedic meditation. We have designed the course to be accessible and interesting to both experienced and amateur meditators. We hope you find it not only prepares you to teach, but also sparks personal transformation and evolution.
