WHAT YOU'LL RECEIVE :
Training with the Best
Study and learn with world-renowned mindfulness teachers. We have gathered a fabulous group of teachers who are all experts in their fields.
Two weeklong trainings at our retreat center in Deerfield, Massachusetts - one at the beginning and one at the end.
International Mindfulness Teachers Association (IMTA) is the leading accreditation agency for mindfulness teachers and certifies our graduates. EMI is fully accredited by IMTA.
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.
