Continuing Education for Meditation Instructors: Weekend Three

June 22nd—June 23rd

Date details +
    Room: BSMC

    Weekend three of this training is part of a series of three weekend trainings that are designed as continuing education for already authorized Meditation Instructors, as well those who are being mentored into that role.

    Weekend Three includes a Saturday overview of mental health, meditation, and the role of the Meditation Instructor tailored for people who are not mental health experts. Presenters will address the following topics: 

    • An overview of therapeutic modalities in contrast to meditation 
    • The role of meditation 
    • When to refer patients for mental health support

    Sunday will focus on investigating the personal journey of a Meditation Instructor framed in terms of the four dignities of meek, perky, outrageous, and inscrutable. Topics that will be addressed are:

    • Modesty, while at the same time the development of confidence
    • Maintaining lungta and offering that to our local communities
    • Community building across the Meditation Instructor community—how can we help and support each other and mentor new MI’s


    Weekend Three is for authorized Meditation Instructors and those being mentored into the role only.
