The focus of MBCT is teaching how to make a simple yet radical shift in the relationship to thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone.
I just wanted to extend a personal thank you to you for the fabulous course, your great teaching and also for taking the time to follow up with me out of the course. So lucrative is it, in fact, that there are a great many website out there that are capitalising on the desire of people like yourself who want to lean how to teach.
I am sure you have seen other websites selling “teacher training.” They promise to guide you through the process of becoming a teacher, and they’ll do it all for the low low price of around a thousand dollars.
There are a lot of scam artists online who ask you to pay to learn how to be a meditation teacher. The shocking and somewhat saddening truth that you need to learn, right now, is that the vast majority of these sites are out only to make a quick profit. Let me save you a lot of money and a lot of heartache by saying this: do NOT sign up to any online teacher training course. That’s the warning out of the way, so let’s get on with it and take a long hard look at the reality of becoming a meditation teacher. If, on the other hand, you wish to teach intermediate or even advanced meditators, you will need to know practically every aspect of meditation.
Teaching children requires a lot of patients, a friendly attitude, and very good communication skills, because, let’s face it, children often do not listen; your ability to teach children will be determined by your ability to communicate with them. Speaking from a purely business perspective, your target audience is also going to affect your marketing. Having decided  your target audience you will next need to choose which type of meditation you wish to teach.
Transcendental Meditation (TM) : This technique is a trademark, meaning it is owned by someone (specifically, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi).
Zen: In order to teach Zen you will need to know the specific postures that are used to create different results. Even if you intend to teach just one type, it is best that you have studied a variety of techniques. One of the best ways to learn how to teach meditation is to talk to other meditation teachers. It is probably only fair that if you are going to be asking a teacher for help, that you try out their lessons at least once. By reaching out to other teachers in your area you also help to find your feet in the local scene. There is no legal requirement (at least in my country) to have certification in order to teach meditation.
Take time to learn about the different types of certification and to find out if one of them is particularly valuable to you—is there a certification which specifically caters for the type of meditation you wish to teach? Depending on the type of meditation that you are going to teach, you will need specific materials. If you’re going to be teaching Osho meditation or Zen meditation you will need mats for both yourself and your student to use.
Other materials that you may need include a mala (selling these can net you extra profit), singing bells, statues and so on.
The design of these materials is important and will be determined by your target audience and by the type of meditation you want to teach.
So, the marketing materials that you use should reflect the type of meditation you teach, your target audience, and should also convey what the student is going to get out of your tuition. Obviously, it should go without saying, that you need to put your details on the card: your phone number, address, your name and the name of your business. Not only does this help to make sure that people talk about your business in a positive light, but it’s also just good karma.

Drishti International held a 3 week intensive 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training on the beaches of Goa, India February 3-23, 2013. During the last week the students were excited (and maybe a little nervous) to begin teaching the 1 hour afternoon Hatha Yoga classes to the public.
Contact us if you’re looking forward to your 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in India 2014, we are! You will find many more videos and articles of mine on my YouTube channel and web site, and here are those links for you to review.

The week by week syllabus and instructions on how to do this program are also included in the manual. To ensure you learn the techniques correctly and precisely, this program comes with 15 online videos. Each video also has an accompanying chapter in the training manual, which gives you the necessary details about the techniques being taught. Finally, all the videos are linked to from the Meditation Training Manual, so they can be easily accessed and integrated into your training.

Developed by leading scientist-practitioners, and solidly grounded in current psychological research, the approach integrates cognitive therapy principles and practice into a mindfulness framework. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. So called teacher training sites are often run by unqualified people who simply compile a bunch of information from various books and reorganise it into a course.
Of course, I am not saying you should not become a teacher, the world needs more teachers and more people meditating in general. Intermediate meditators are looking for people to take them to the next level, to advance their skills. You will need different business cards, different advertising, and different sources of students depending on your target audience.
If you are already particularly knowledgeable about a certain type, then logically that is the type you should teach. TM is something many people are interested in, mostly because of the number of celebrities who advocate the technique. Students interested in Zen are also going to want to know about the history of Zen, so be sure to brush up on that before beginning. Because of its physical nature, there are some risks with dynamic meditation that can affect the business.
After all, it is only natural that a student leaning one type will have some interest about other techniques.
The vast majority of them (if they have been following their own teachings) will be nice, friendly and helpful people. This shows interest and, of course, gives them a return: they receive a bit of cash, you receive a lot of leaning. However, there are many benefits of certification, mostly that it proves your validity to potential clients.
If you do not, you could very well end up with an accident that leads to a lawsuit which completely destroys your business.
You need to make sure that the meditation space you provide for your students is relaxing and looks the part.
If you’re giving guided visualisation meditations, for instance, you are going to need a way of playing music.
Not only is it more comfortable, but should a student get injured and you need your insurance company to cover, the insurer is going to want to know that you had everything set up properly—let’s be honest, insurers will do anything in their power to avoid paying out; don’t give them an excuse not to honour their agreement. You might not end up actually using these materials in the actual lesson, but simply having them their for the student to see provides the right sort of image, helping to validate your business in the eyes of your clients. You’re going to need business cards, perhaps flyers or brochures, and other marketing materials. No eighty year old is going to be interested in a business card that is clearly marketed to teenagers, or vice versa.
Grab your local newspapers, call their advertising department and find out how much it costs for an ad. Websites obviously cater to a wider audience and a lot of their readership will be completely irrelevant to you. Please enter a quantity of 1 or more next to the type or types of tickets you would like to purchase. Bolster your resume and join an elite group of entrepreneurial healthcare pioneers who have already become board certified meditation specialists™.
This immersion retreat will also focus and strengthen your existing skills—while you earn continuing education credits.
The relaxing atmosphere of Agonda was the perfect setting to deepen our practice and absorb the brilliant colors and sounds of India.
We had made announcements the week prior that the class would be donation based and all profits generated would be donated to the local school for school supplies.
This is because, Amazing Insights will answer for you the most difficult questions regarding life and Reality. I have created this program and am the author of Mastery of Meditation and Yoga, one of the largest and most popular yoga and meditation portals on the internet. So not only do you get the Meditation Training Manual, but you will also have access to the syllabus and all the material online as well. Upon passing it you receive a signed certificate from me and Mastery of Meditation and Yoga, certifying you to teach meditation, as well as gentle yoga and pranayama. You will understand deeply how profound the method that was used to create this meditation truly is, and you will be able to apply such wisdom in creative ways of your own.
The links allow you to access additional material you may wish to study in order to deepen your knowledge and understanding of meditation, yoga and enlightened living.
This manual consists of the very best articles and techniques from the Mastery of Meditation and Yoga web site and much much more. The videos teach and demonstrate all the important meditation, yoga and pranayama techniques used in the program.
As the certification program was launched in 2010, the first batch of students are now graduating and you will find their listings there. This newsletter is sent about 1 time per month only to the enrolled students and graduates, and is packed with key information, tips and free gifts to help you succeed as a meditation teacher. Medication lifted me out of a hole but MBCT has given a reinvigorated perspective on my life, the illness and now to cope with difficulties that come my way. It is only over the past ten years that meditation has truly come into its own in the west, gradually becoming more and more popular to a point where, now, it is quite a large and potentially lucrative industry.
They are invariably woefully inadequate and will not help you to become a teacher; instead, they’ll just pocket your cash. I am only saying this: give your money only to a person you can meet in person, who can prove their qualifications, who will genuinely teach you how to teach meditation. Teaching to children, for instance, is radically different to teaching to the elderly, which is radically different to teaching meditation for health reasons, such as in cognitive behavioural therapy. If so, you will have to have a certain set of skills, the most important skill being the ability to express yourself clearly so that your students can fully understand your teaching. However, to legally teach Transcendental Meditation you must receive certification as a TM teacher, which is rather expensive.

By guiding a student though a visualisation you essentially give them the opportunity to relax without doing much work.
Because it is possible for someone to injure themselves while practising Zen meditation, you will need to make sure that whatever meditation insurance you get covers such injuries (otherwise you could end up on the receiving end of a very hefty lawsuit which will completely obliterate your business). If, of course, you are teaching beginners, you might instead choose to give basic instruction on a variety of techniques.
You wouldn’t want to lean piano from someone who hasn’t leant to play the piano; meditation students want to know that their teacher knows what they are talking about.
If you are unable to discuss other techniques with your students, they are unlikely to take you seriously and thereby unlikely to return for more lessons. Perhaps there is a Zen teacher who has a student who is interested in leaning about Transcendental Meditation; they could refer their student to you, if you have experience of TM, and in exchange you could refer your students who are interested in Zen, to them.
If you do not do your research, if you do not learn about the different options for certification, you will end up choosing incorrectly and wasting your money. When I called up the insurance company to workout my own insurance, I was simply asked to document the type of tuition and experiences I myself have (eg. Too much light can create headaches and distract the mind, while too dim lighting could cause fatigue; neither is conducive to high quality instruction. If, for instance, you are teaching meditation purely for health, your marketing materials should show an individual who is clearly healthy (hopefully yourself), or should convey health in some other ways, through the use of iconography and symbolism, for instance. Then make sure your marketing materials shows an eldely person doing breathing meditation and looking relaxed.
Tell your friends, you family, your colleagues and everyone else that you are teaching meditation. However, you can always contact the webmaster and ask if they can run a “Geo-localised ad” for you.
The best way to do that is to make sure that you only start with a few students, or with a number that you can easily manage.
Take your practice to the next level and become eligible to complete your certification, gain competency, and put the skills and tools acquired from the online and webinar program into practice!
You’ll gain a thorough grounding in the principles of healing and evidence-based meditation, and learn how to integrate this transformative practice into your own life. Taylor’s expert guidance, you’ll practice the meditation sequence and master the five steps of bringing mindfulness into focus.
Important truths about Enlightenment, Purpose, Meaning, Knowledge, Destiny, Karma, Relationships, Reincarnation and more are revealed in this book.
Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
Visualisation is a lot like Hypnotherapy, both involving the use of the imagination for various results.
Finding a student can be hard work, so it’s just as well that you do everything to ensure that any student you find wants to return for more lessons. Ask them for advise, ask them about the business, ask them about how they teach and their techniques, and also ask about the more local aspects of the business. Secondly, when it comes to those all important repeat lessons (which is where your money will come from), people will only return to you if they enjoyed the first lesson, and a huge part of enjoying the lesson is being in the right space.
Of course, if your spatial requirements will vary based on the group size that you want to teach. Build your audience gradually, so that you can be certain to always provide quality tuition.
Sure, you get some money, but in my experience the type of person who wants to teach meditation is a highly moral individual who places the concern of others above themselves.
This clinic is open to those who have completed the online and webinar portion of this program or its equivalent.
This is also, in many ways, an easy technique to teach simply because you yourself are in complete control of the meditation, rather than being reliant on the student to focus their minds (if you remember, focussing the mind is not very easy when you are new to meditation).
All of this proves your credibility as a meditation teacher, helping to create a positive perception of your teaching, equating to your students’ desire to continue to lean from you.
Compared to many other holistic teaching positions, finding insurance for meditation teaching is very easy. If you, like myself, happen to be a writer, find some way of making your business news story. For instance, if you’re teaching meditation in Canada you can ask for a geo-target ad to be shown in Canada only; this saves you money as your ad will only be displayed to people in your country or local region. Travel to a retreat center nestled in the beautiful Pocono Mountains and attend this five-day professional continuing education seminar to acquire the teaching tools of evidence based meditation.
Susan Taylor’s acclaimed Meditation Specialist™ Training Program: a complete course in the theory, science and practice of meditation therapy, with a focus on healing meditation in a wide range of personal and professional environments. It was an intense 3 weeks, but all the hard work was balanced out by plenty of laughs and beach time. We had a great turnout for the classes and when Carri returned to make the donation, the school expressed much gratitude. The only way to ensure repeat visits from a student, and thereby to steadily increase your business, is to make sure that you know what you are talking about.
You may find that a friend or family member either wants to lean to meditate themselves or knows someone who does; that’s your first and most important client right there.
Kindness to your students means valuing their time and money and giving them a darned good lesson.
Participants are provided with additional skills to teach the core competencies (breathing, yoga postures, and systematic relaxation) to specific client populations. Students are immersed in the powerful learning, restorative and health building techniques unique to the authentic practice of meditation. Not only did the students feel great that they had already started teaching public classes, but that their efforts were going to a good cause. Give that one client the best lesson ever and they’ll talk about it, word will spread, and with a little bit of luck you’ll have a successful business on your hands. Write it up, send it to the editor, and if you’re a good writer and a little lucky you could end up with some excellent free advertising.
By keeping your business small at the beginning, you make sure you’ve got the time and energy to truly provide your students with an excellent spot of meditation tuition.
Integrate the principles of teaching meditation and its practices into multiple settings – long-term care facilities, hospitals, veterans’ administration facilities, outpatient clinics, community health, or private practice.
Youwill have opportunities to explore questions and impressions arising out of your experience —and, if so inspired, to discuss the steps to becoming a board certified meditation teacher.This program fulfills one of the requirements of the Meditation Specialist™ Competency Training (MSCT) conducted by the Center for Meditation Science, but does not guarantee board certification. It’s a lot easier if you have the right space set up in your own home or in a local facility. While Agonda is actually a very clean beach, we managed to fill about 6 bags full of trash, doing something good for ourselves while doing something good for the environment and community… more hard work paying off!
