Calls Days & Times: TBD
Every month throughout the course, our group will meet together on a conference call (you’ll have several times to choose from).
There are many benefits to meditation. These benefits have been documented through the centuries by yogis, monks, seekers, and more recently by scientists too: reduced stress, better sleep, healthy changes in brain structure, inner peace, and spiritual awakening. Over six months of dedicated study you will invite these and other wonderful benefits into your life as our community co-creates this immersive meditation experience.
Through expert-led seminars and dynamic, interactive conversations you will learn multiple practical approaches to silent and guided meditation. You will also spend time developing your unique style as a meditation teacher.
In this course you will learn:
Three main styles of meditation: concentration; heart-centered and chakra/kosha
How to develop a consistent, personal meditation practice
How to set up for meditation and how to teach the set-ups to others
Basics of teaching meditation to beginners
A conceptual overview of dualism and non-dualism
How sound is used in meditation
The role and application of pranayama, mudras, mantras and yantras
Basic neuroscience of meditation
This course has been created to ensure that you will have ample time for questions and answers, and to talk about your experiences. You will have an opportunity to practice teaching meditation to your peers and to get feedback from them and from your teachers. On the final weekend you will present a meditation for beginners.
Classes will be both in-person and through conference calls, supported by a manual and our online educational platform. To foster a small teacher-student ratio, each student will be part of a small group with a mentor who will be available for support and questions on a regular basis.
A $200.00 cancellation fee is included in the workshop cost. Full payment due if registration is not cancelled by November 6, 2019.
