- Mindfulness Teacher Training Program (MTTP) – Our 9 month program, directed and led by Executive Director, Tim Burnett, lays the foundation for teaching mindfulness, including introductory workshops and trainings. A comprehensive foundation for any aspiring mindfulness teacher, this training thoroughly reviews the ancient roots and modern science of mindfulness, as well as contemporary pedagogical techniques. You’ll complete weekly reading and meditation assignments, practice leading meditations, and learn how to support mindful inquiry, all with a cohort of your peers.
- MBSR Teacher Training (MBSR-TT) – an immersive, apprentice-style training in how to teach the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course with skill and confidence. It features hands-on, in-classroom training with a high faculty-to-student ratio, facilitated cohort support, and individualized mentorship. Personalized feedback, flexibility, and warm support are the hallmarks of this unique certification program.
The next Mindfulness Teacher Training Program (MTTP) cohort (’22-’23) starts September, 2023. Learn more and apply here.

I wasn’t sure whether I was “ready” for mindfulness teacher training, but I’m so incredibly glad I went for it. The MTTP program was transformational for my practice, my life path, and my spirit. Connecting so deeply with a community of fellow learners was joyful and inspiring. The quality of this training built up my confidence as well as my competence; I know I’m well on my way to becoming a great mindfulness teacher.
