Certification Program for Teachers.

teacher training for childrens meditation

I offer a four week course for teachers who would like to incorporate the "Self-Aware Child" meditation in the classroom.

If you are planning to teach your kids how to meditate, it's important that you develop a practice yourself.

The first week, we will focus on getting to "Know ourselves".

You will be guided through a series of exercises and guided meditations where you will be able to experience the effects of this practice for yourself.

You can then make an assessment of what works for you and what doesn't. 

You will also have the opportunity to take a look at the patterns that are presently running your life.
