The primary purpose of this training is to help each participant view their personal relationship with meditation practice as the basis for sharing practice with others. In a culture with a diversity of views on mindfulness and meditation, it is beneficial to learn about the practice in a way that integrates and appreciates a diverse set of influences and experiences. Informed by Buddhism and Yoga, our hope is to present principles of meditation that support each practitioner to engage more fully in their everyday lives. It is from consistent practice and understanding a clear set of instructions that folks can begin to share meditation practice for others.
The first 6 months of the training will be primarily focused on developing a shared language for practice, discussing key concepts, and practicing together – a lot. After stabilizing in practice, we will begin discussions about teaching, working towards students being able to lead guided meditations and classes.
Who is this training for?
- People who already have explored meditation and are seeking to learn more.
- People seeking to develop a regular practice and cultivate an understanding of meditation that integrates with their daily lives.
- People who want to support others with clear meditation teaching and instruction.
