Meditation Teacher Training
*Meditation Teacher Training*
This week I was thrilled to see one of my Seasonal Lounge community take the step to become a meditation teacher. Such a worthy path .. and one that takes an extra dose of passion for meditation, courage and true desire to bring this ‘life tool’ to others.
My own journey from meditator to meditation teacher was a long one. I was a happy and engaged meditator for 25+ years before I had even the smallest glimmer of thought about becoming a teacher. My meditation journey started in a very traditional Buddhist setting, so the idea of being a ‘teacher’ seemed unattainable and far fetched. But over the years and after many twists and turns, I found myself on a retreat in Bali .. sitting in the meditation hut overlooking the rice paddy fields (sounds totally cliche but it’s true) and then I had a thought that the greatest gift I had to share .. was my passion for meditation
It was not long after that, that I met Sarah McLean .. and so was the start of a wondrous journey, that continues to inspire and nourish me.
In 2015, I completed the McLean Meditation Institute’s Meditation and Mindfulness teacher training at the Meditation Teacher Academy. Life-changing stuff. This teacher training is a real commitment … a mix of online self-paced learning and a seven-day intensive retreat (I did mine in Sedona amongst the majestic red hills but there are various locations available) .. 200+ hours of training.
Some students are called to become meditation teachers .. some students are simply walking their own path and wanting to expand their learning and personal practice.

This week, Sarah McLean, Director of the Meditation Teacher Academy will be hosting a ZOOM call to share information on what it takes to attend the Meditation Teacher Academy .. and become a meditation and mindfulness teacher.
The call is open to the world .. and I’ll be there too!
