Mindful Teacher Certification Program
Our Mindful Teacher Certification Program is designed for educators, by educators. If you are an educator or school leader passionate about deepening your personal mindfulness practice and gaining the skills and in-depth experiential training to effectively share mindfulness practices across audiences in your school community, join us. This 300-hour immersive year-long experience has empowered a new generation of over one thousand Mindful Teachers to positively shift learning environments and pioneer the path toward building mindful schools. The 2021-2022 program marks Mindful Schools’ ninth year of guiding educators in our work to create mindful learning environments that support every educator and child to realize their fullest potential.
Mindful Schools is deeply committed to equity and inclusivity, and we believe that representation matters in all elements of our trainings. This year we established an Equity in Action Scholarship Fund to invest in educators who identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+. If you have the resources and capacity to support the EIA Fund, please make a gift here. Learn more about the EIA Scholarship in the Program Details section below.
“You are about to embark on a truly remarkable life-changing experience. Get ready to learn how to love yourself and others in a way you’ve never known before.”
