In this course you learn by doing and the emphasis is on a practical learning experience that helps you develop confidence and grace when facilitating guided meditation for others and a solid understanding of technique in order to teach others. By the end of the course, you will be able to conduct and teach meditation in a variety of settings and using a variety of techniques. You will have the ability to create meditations that are suitable for corporate group relaxation and stress management, meditation therapy, community groups, children and support groups. Our courses teach you to create your own original meditations rather than following scripts.
The course has a very holistic focus and learning style. No discussion of meditation would be complete without exploring the benefits of meditation for spiritual growth and insight, however holistic in this context is non-denominational. Equally, the course contains well researched and up to date information on the science and psychology of meditation.
The Certificate, Advanced Certificate and Diploma in Guiding and Teaching Meditation can be completed at your own pace and in your own time, and close contact is maintained with your personal coach through one on one tuition. You are also able to connect to other students as on a regular basis.

“It has been a beautiful journey. Listening to the relaxing meditation CD’s and working through the manuals became something I looked forward to after a busy working week. It felt like a gift I gave to myself on a regular and ongoing basis – completely nourishing to the soul. The course is self-paced with ongoing support just an email away. Regular Skype sessions with peers and teachers provide continual educational assistance and a platform to connect, de-brief, or discuss any questions. The teachers are supportive and encouraging and foster our creative energy. ” Kathy
