Our Unique Focus

In this time of uncertainty, the world needs more people willing to step up to teach trauma-informed Mindfulness as a critical skill for resilience. Engaged Mindfulness Institute specializes in training people to bring mindfulness to those in underserved communities.  

Our Mindfulness Teacher Training is ideal for educators, therapists, social workers, healthcare professionals, and community leaders who seek to deepen their mindfulness practice and share these transformative skills with diverse populations. The program particularly benefits those working in underserved communities, such as prisons, schools, and social service organizations, where mindfulness can significantly impact emotional intelligence, stress reduction, and overall well-being. Through comprehensive training, participants learn to embody mindfulness principles, develop effective teaching strategies, and create inclusive and supportive environments for all individuals they serve.

We’ve provided Mindfulness Teacher Training to changemakers worldwide for eleven years and certified hundreds of graduates.
