The Mindfulness Center Meditation Teacher Training

The Meditation as Therapy, Meditation Teacher Training program is a 140-hour immersion program that informs the participant through both didactic and experiential practices. Discussion covers the evidence-based use of meditation as a clinical therapy, the mechanism of action by which meditation and other related mind-body practices work, and the mechanism of healing as it applies to both the physiological and psychological dimensions of health. Experiential practice cultivates a deeper self-practice, and builds the foundation for teaching group and one-on-one sessions.
