In-Depth Coursework

Some of the richest learning will occur through joining with your training cohort (limited to 40 participants) online for a deep dive into the foundations of mindfulness and all aspects of teaching. Online coursework includes lectures, discussions, readings, exams, and written assignments.


Community of Practice

The training includes ongoing participation in a robust, online Community of Practice led by an EMI Faculty member. In your small (7-8 participants), bi-weekly Zoom group, you will share your learning about the key concepts of the training and practice teaching and receiving feedback. 

You will also be meeting with your faculty group leader one- on-one two times during the training to work with you on developing your teaching skills.
