2021 Meditation Teacher Training
March – November 2021
200 Hours ~ Online, In-person via Zoom
Application Deadline: February 27, 2021
I’m delighted to offer the Hamsa Meditation Teacher Training Program to those of you interested in deepening your own meditation practice, learning about the vast rich world of meditation, and, of course, how to teach meditation.
I invite you to scroll through this page to learn about our uniquely personal Meditation Teacher Training Program. Most programs these days consist of pre-recorded content that you watch on your own. There's nothing wrong with this approach and it works great for many people.
What's unique about our Teacher Training?
Over 160 of your 200 hours is spent training, studying, practicing and meditating with your teachers in real time!
Now if that sounds horrifying to you because you prefer the anonymity of pre-recorded content, then this obviously isn't the program for you so keep looking. There are many many programs out there and you will find one that works for you!
However, if the opportunity to:
- Ask questions and have them answered in real time so you can have a dialogue to ask follow up questions,
- Discuss what you're learning at depth,
- Be in a small program that gets to know you,
- Deepen and personalize your own meditation practice,
- Transform at the levels only direct contact with a teacher facilitates,
- Learn how to recognize and adapt the techniques that work best for your unique needs, personality and beliefs,
- Share your personal insights and experiences with others who are genuinely interested in what you have to say,
...if this sounds heavenly, then this program might be a perfect fit for you.
Go ahead and check out the information on this page—and also our Welcome Page to learn more about Hamsa Meditation Center and see if we are a good fit for you. If we are, then we would love to have you Apply!
The application deadline is midnight, February 27.
Whether you choose to teach by leading classes and workshops or by simply being an authentic, non-judgmental, wise, loving presence in your home, workplace or community... know this,
The world needs you!
A personal note:
Over the years, as I've continued my development as a teacher— I take at least one or two trainings a year—it's become clear to me that personal contact is what provides the most meaningful and transformational experience possible. There are many programs available online, on CDs, or as digital downloads, which sounds great because you can go at your own pace and rhythm. But the reality is—and I've seen this play out too many times to count—the vast majority of students never finish the program. They end up abandoning the course or paying to retake it and then, yep, you got it, they still never finish. It's happened to me and I've watched it happen to countless others. This isn't what I want for my students; rather, my goal is:
You will complete the program and experience the transformation, peace, and equanimity, meditation brings.
The Hamsa Meditation Center Teacher Training focuses on personal interaction between teachers and students. The vast majority of your hours are spent learning and practicing in class together! The personal interaction makes a world of difference in the richness and depth of your learning experience.
Closing Thoughts ...
My guru often said to me,
"Caren, if you want to learn about meditation, teach!"
And, he was right! What I've learned about meditation over these years has transformed me, my relationships, and my life.
If what you’ve seen here resonates with you, I would be honored to share all that my teachers have taught me, with you.
