Meditation teacher Training Program

Meditation is a tool to unlock inner focus and clarity. A journey of self-discovery, meditation improves health, reduces stress and deepens understanding. The gift of meditation is not what you can attain, but what you can remove. Meditation helps you release destructive thinking patterns and attitudes to revitalize your life.

Embark from a student of meditation to the rewarding world of teaching through our Meditation Teacher Training Program (MTTP). Whether you are looking to establish and sustain your own meditation practice, or teach professionally, we equip you with the essential knowledge, skills and certification required to successfully identify and reach your meditation goals.
