meditation teacher trainings
These non-sequential trainings led by Marlie McGovern are appropriate for those seeking to begin or deepen a mindfulness mediation practice, for yoga teachers seeking to knowledgeably weave meditation into their classes, and for therapists, physicians, pastors, caregivers, parents, teachers, and others seeking to offer the benefits of meditation to others. All are warmly welcomed. Each weekend module stands alone and focuses on a distinct foundation of Mindfulness. It is not necessary to have taken previous modules to participate in any of the below trainings.
Modules + mentorship can be combined for a 100-hour certificate with Marlie. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
