Mindfulness + the Path of Meditation

Meditation helps us develop a kind of "mindfulness muscle" - so that every thought doesn’t just drag us out of the room.

This workshop is the first level of our 100-Hour Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training course. While you are welcome to take this weekend by itself, pursuing your certification through the full Meditation Teacher Training will help you gain a more complete understanding of meditation practice and the stages of the Buddhist path. It will also help you to deepen your own practice, and develop your ability to present these teachings in a clear and genuinely helpful way to others in both a group and 1-1 setting.
