In a world which can often be filled with stressors, distractions and an overwhelming amount of information coming at us at any given time (it’s said we consume 34 GB of info a day on average), meditation is a much needed tool to maintain a sense of mental focus, peace and equanimity.
They say you teach best what you need to learn and this training aims to help you first and foremost develop a regular meditation practice you can use to support yourself in maintaining an optimal state of mind. You’ll do this through learning tools, techniques and best practices for setting up and guiding a meditation practice. By learning how to share the power of mindfulness-based meditation with others, you’ll not only enhance the lives of others, you’ll enrich yours as well!
*Note: you do not have to have any previous teaching experience (yoga or otherwise) to participate in this training.
Throughout our 2 sessions together, you will gain knowledge and insights on:
- How to set-up the space and body for an optimal practice
- Multiple techniques ranging from traditional practices to more modern day applications
- Leading an effective group practice including planning strategies, opening and closing rituals, cueing and timing
- Common challenges for meditators and how to help overcome those
- A framework for developing and sustaining a daily meditation practice
You’ll also leave with a comprehensive manual that includes several scripts you can use as a foundation to get started as well as online videos and audio recordings you can play back for guidance at any time.
