Online Mindfulness Teacher Training
Mindfulness Teacher Training:
The online mindfulness teacher and facilitator training course provides the convenience of self-paced study, supported education with a mentor and teachers, and direction and structure to keep you on track.
This program is split into 9 self-paced modules plus a capstone practicum project (which students are given 3 months to complete). Students are given a structured learning environment with the freedom to create their own schedule (weekly assignments are due on Sundays).
Finding Your Path…
The online mindfulness teacher training course is designed to take you through the study of meditation history, philosophy, deeper practices, transition into personal, self-study, inner work, and then move into how to apply these teachings to work with future students. Students gain understanding through modern science and learn to apply ancient and modern teaching to a variety of situations.
Coursework is presented through lectures, podcasts, audio, visual, reading, and even YouTube videos.
Taking into consideration the different learning styles of our students, most assignments can be handed in using any format: essay, written word, song, art, PowerPoint or visual art, etc. As long as we can assess that you have learned and understand the material, you have the control to show us in the best way that serves you.
To receive certification, all students must complete a capstone project which entails course design and implementation for a specific population (ie: creating a 6-week introduction to meditation course geared to adolescents with anxiety).
