Teacher Training

Part I Foundations of Mindfulness

Feb 6 – March 22, 2018

Part 2 Developmental Perspective

June 26 – July 24, 2018

The next Teacher Training course for the Inner Strength Teen Program will be held in two parts, Part 1 Feb 6 –
Mar 22 and Part 2 June 26 -July 24, 2018.

You may register for Part I only. Part 1 is required for Part 2. Successful completion of Part 1 & 2 are required to receive a Certificate of Training.

This indepth program is uniquely designed to give you the philosophy behind the practice as well as specific classroom instruction. You will work closely with a small cohort to learn how to teach the 12-week mindfulness and cultural development curriculum.

The goal of this training is to engage with the depth of mindfulness and the breadth of a developmental perspective so that when you teach you will be able to draw from the well of your own experience.

Graduates become part of a supportive teacher’s cohort, with access to ongoing weekly professional development teleconference calls and teaching opportunities.

If you’ve always wanted to share your love of stillness with teens, and you’ve wanted to connect with others dedicated to supporting this next generation, this training is an ideal opportunity.
