This training consists of three weekends, totaling 30 hours over a three-month period. The format is retreat-like in nature and offers rich opportunities to delve deeper into an embodied understanding and practice of meditation. This training will offer you the opportunity to:
• Deepen your personal meditation practice
• Develop the confidence and skills for adding meditation instruction to your Yoga classes or lead meditation-specific classes and events
• Receive guidance on offering one-on-one instruction and assistance in meditation
• Learn the rich psychological and spiritual foundations of mindfulness meditation
• Gain a deeper understanding of the history and philosophy of traditional meditation and contemplative practices
• Study, learn and enrich your meditation experience within a community of peers.
The coursework for this training is modeled on traditional Yogic studies and includes talks, presentations (videos and slides), engaged inquiry, guided and silent meditation, and applied contemplative practices.
It is carefully designed to help you expand your understanding, deepen your personal practice, and help prepare you to confidently and skillfully offer meditation teaching and assistance to your students. This course is also ideal for any individual already practicing meditation who wishes to deepen their practice, as well as counselors, therapists, life coaches and health professionals who wish to offer meditation to their clients.
With equal emphasis on both study and practice, this three-month, three-weekend course includes - in addition to 30 hours of in-class training - reading assignments, personal study topics, and guidance in specific study and practices to be completed in-between the weekends that we meet. This course is YACEP® certified and qualifies for Continuing Educations hours for RYT certified teachers.
This course will encourage an ongoing meditation practice that draws from elements of traditional Yoga meditation such as the four heart-dispositions (brahma-viharas), the five factors or attitudes of awakening, the eight limbs of Yoga (astha-anga), working with hindrances of the mind (kleshas) and more.
The principal focus of the training is divided into three areas:
I. The Foundations of Yoga Meditation
II. The History, Meaning, and Practice of Mindfulness
III. Teaching & Learning Methodologies

Join Alex Seaman for an extended savasana while absorbing the sound of the Chiron Gong, tuned to D# for initiation and personal transformation. The deep harmonics of the gong silence the mind and entrain the brain into a spontaneous state of deep meditation. The sacred sounds create a full body, sonic massage to regenerate the parasympathetic nervous system. Chiron says that there is nothing to fix, correct, cure, or get rid of; the wound is Healed when the Gift is embraced.
