BECOME A CERTIFIED MEDITATION TEACHER

Please note: All classes will be held online. If we are able to resume live classes at Tibet House during the course, the remaining classes will be simultaneously live at Tibet House and live to remote participants via Zoom.

If you are interested in developing the skills to become a certified mindfulness meditation teacher, join Senior Buddhist teacher, David Nichtern, in conjunction with Tibet House US for our new 100 hour Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training program.

This immersion will help you gain a more complete understanding of meditation and an overview of the stages of the Buddhist path. The training is aimed at those who wish to become more skillful in presenting mindfulness and anyone seeking to integrate teaching meditation into their existing modalities – such as therapists, social workers, yoga teachers, health care professionals, educators, coaches.  The training is also open to those who simply wish to deepen their own practice and study.

During the training there will be group practice, teaching exercises, additional individual practice and study requirements.   Students will be asked to practice mindfulness meditation for a minimum of 20 minutes per day, at least 5 days a week for the duration of the program. Additional details will be presented for smaller group practice and mock teaching sessions once the program is underway.

David’s past Meditation Teacher Training students have gone on to:

– Build careers teaching meditation workshops and classes all over the world.
– Create a roster of recurring clients drawing from individual students, corporations, hospitals, yoga studios, prisons and schools.
– Experience significant personal transformation and lead others to a more grounded, sane, and open hearted existence.

Through immersion in learning and personal cultivation, as well as supervised teaching practice, participants will:

– Learn the foundations of Buddhist philosophy and practice.
– Have the opportunity to lead mock teaching sessions in one-to-one and group settings, receiving constructive feedback from
teachers and other trainees.
– Learn how to relate clearly and precisely to the most frequently asked questions and difficulties from beginning students.
– Build a supportive learning community with your fellow classmates.
– Develop greater presence, balance, clarity, and insight by strengthening and stabilizing your own meditation practice.

*** Certificate of Completion will be given to students who complete all requirements, make a satisfactory teaching presentation, and pass a written final exam on the material covered. Some graduates will be invited to teach meditation and lead groups at The Tibet House.***
