Learn Deep Meditation Practices to Release Stress and Anxiety

THE NATURAL ANTIDOTE TO ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION

Meditation is often the least tended to of the yogic practices -- but by far the most effective and important. It's a practice that eludes many students and even teachers. This 3 part training will deepen your meditation and relaxation practice substantially while enabling you to confidently and authentically guide others. 

You will learn to incorporate meditation harmoniously into all types of classes and group meetings as well as during private sessions with clients or loved ones. You will speak from a place of deep inner experience when you guide students, clients or friends through the inner obstacles that are bound to arise when we bring full presence to our inner state. When we become practiced at sitting in stillness in Deep Presence, all that we have not addressed yet will arise so that we may bring conscious, loving awareness to all of what lives within. 

This 3 part Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation Teacher Training is for you if have always wanted to explore how meditation can profoundly change your life but lacked guidance and discipline and it's for you if are already intimately familiar with the benefits of meditation and feel ready to deepen your practice while getting ready to guide others into a deep and consistent practice of meditation.

Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation Teacher Training Level 3

Level 3 is your time to practice stepping fully into your power as a Mindfulness Meditation and Relaxation Teacher. By this time you will have completed 9 months of consistent meditation: you have deepened your journey and you have developed personal insight into the inevitable struggles that you face when you are present to all the arises from deep within. Having learned to work with and through your own inner obstacles enables you to understand the struggle of others. This inner transformation and growth will enable you to effectively guide individuals and groups into deep meditation while staying attuned to the inner and outer obstacles that your students will face -- because you yourself continue to face them and move through them. Everyone of us is a spiritual work in progress and while you will likely never 'get there' you will continue to evolve in your capacity to meet the unconscious and reactive places within and gradually integrate them by bringing love and presence to the shadows. 

In addition to working with this deeper level of personal growth through the persistent practice of meditation, Level 3 will also have a strong focus on the practical aspect of teaching both groups and individuals. How you might develop classes, workshops, retreats and/or recordings that will ensure that you reach as many students as possible at a pace that is comfortable for you. 

There are no pre-requisites for this course. The course is limited to 16 students. You will be practicing in an intimate setting with a supportive group of people who share the goal of incorporating more mindfulness into their lives and gradually achieving a sense of inner peace and calm as well as greater ease in the body.
