Become a Certified Children’s Meditation Teacher

New online training course begins August 1, 2020

In this meditation instructor certification training, you will be coached and trained on how to teach children at every age and stage of their development the self-awareness, ethical living, self-soothing, and concentration practices of mindfulness meditation.

Studies have shown that learning meditation practices at an early age increases a child’s emotional stability, resilience, self-confidence, and prepares the child to successfully navigate life’s emotional ups and downs.
