Add depth to your meditation practice

As you probably know, the body is a huge part of meditation. And using embodied techniques can help add depth to almost any practice.

Being able to coach an embodied approach (to individuals or groups) can dramatically enhance your facilitation. That’s why we created our LIVE 20-week Embodied Meditation Facilitation Training.

Learn how to coach embodied meditation clearly & confidently

This is a real course, with real people (and limited group size). Not only will this training transform your own practice, but you’ll learn how to coach embodied meditation to students and clients, confidently and safely.

Whether you’re a meditation teacher looking to bring something new to your classes, a coach looking to broaden your offering or a movement teacher looking for an approach more tailored to your work – this certification will transform the way you support your clients forever.

Why we're doing this now...

“Facilitating 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.

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.

This 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. We’ll also introduce 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. I’m positive it will for you, too.”
