Opening Weeklong Mindfulness Retreat
The first retreat focuses on deepening your personal mindfulness practice, including mindful yoga and other mindful movement practices.
Concluding Training Retreat
The final retreat focuses on further deepening your personal mindfulness practice, while learning to teach mindfulness and building confidence as a mindfulness facilitator and teacher-in-training.
Both retreats are seven days, six nights, including arrival and departure day. Retreats will be held in Deerfield, Massachusetts at our beautiful rural retreat center accessible from airports in Hartford, Boston and New York (via Amtrak).
Nine months of intensive online learning through video lectures, readings, exams, and written assignments including:
Three Online Courses
Course 1: 10-week Fundamentals of Mindfulness Practice course
Course 2: 8-week Art of Teaching Mindfulness course
Course 3: 6-week Engaged Mindfulness Training course
The program includes ongoing participation in a robust, online Community of Practice (COP).
Here you will share your learning about the key concepts of the training with your fellow participants through guided discussions. Participants will also log their daily/weekly practice requirements online in these groups.
Some of the richest learning will occur through engaging with your entire training cohort (limited to 40 participants) online. You will also be assigned a smaller online study group that will be guided by a group mentor and meet bi-weekly via video conference.
