How to confidently and safely use embodied meditation techniques

Ways to integrate embodied awareness with groups

You’ll develop the skills necessary to bring an embodied approach to your group classes with confidence and clarity.

Insights to enhance relationships with your students

Adopting an embodied approach helps you understand and relate to your clients on a totally different level, giving you insights to better support them.

What the five most common problems students face when meditation are

(And how to help them overcome them)

Applications of meditation to social interaction and working online (you won’t find this anywhere else)

Learn how Embodied Meditation can be applied to different environments and help students respond as their best self.

How to help students establish a regular practice

Learn how to help different students with different lifestyles and needs establish a practice that works for them.

Tools to help students get their meditation ‘off the cushion’ and into daily life

Embodied Meditation is about integrating meditation into daily life, so you’ll learn plenty of tools for doing this too.

Your course leaders

Teaching Embodied Meditation has dramatically changed my inner and outer world.

I’ve meditated for years, but only when I shifted to an embodied approach did I realise how much deeper I could go.

I’ve realised that embodied presence is actually a radical doorway to listening, loving and expressing our feelings in a compassionate way. Radical, because most of us are so distracted by modern life that we’re not really ‘here’ a lot of the time.

Embodied presence may well be one of the greatest gifts we can offer to anyone and it’s an essential aspect of teaching and facilitation.

Throughout this training, we’ll focus a lot on embodied presence, as well as introducing an embodied approach to meditation that will transform your personal practice and help your students/clients in almost all areas of their lives. The tools are practical, easy to do and designed to benefit your whole life, not just the time you spend meditating.

This approach has had a serious impact on my life personally and that of my students, and I’m positive it will for you, too.

Martin has been practicing meditation intensively for 30 years and has been teaching dharma and guiding people in their practice since 1999.

Aged 19, Martin left for India with a one-way ticket and no luggage. He spent most of the next four years in Asian monasteries, retreat centres and Ashrams where he developed a formal meditation practice based on Vipassana / Insight Meditation, while also exploring many different teachings and practice forms.

He spent several months with Ajahn Buddhadasa at Wat Suan Mokkh in Thailand and sat annual month-long retreats all through the 1990s at the Thai Monastery in Bodh Gaya with Christopher Titmuss. After ten years of practice, Christopher encouraged him to begin teaching. He has also studied and practiced with various Buddhist teachers and traditions, including the Vajrayana practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen.

Martin spent two years living with Sukhanta Giri Babaji, a Hindu sadhu, at his hermitage near Dharamsala and has lived and practiced with various other Indian sadhus and Himalayan hermits. He was also a student of the Diamond Approach of A.H. Almaas for 13 years.
