Lifestyle Meditation Teacher Training: Foundations

“It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, 
sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely.” 

― Leo F. Buscaglia

Become an inspiring facilitator confidently ready to open the door for others. This training is designed to deepen your understanding of the connection between stress and your mental and physical health, and how to sustainably create practices that result in greater overall happiness, freedom and ease. During this 5 module immersion you will:

I attended the 25 hour meditation teacher training class this past a word, WOW! Mandy Trapp is an amazing facilitator. She is well-versed in the who/what/why/how of many styles of meditation, and she is able to transmit this in a smooth, clear and heart-felt manner. I was truly blown away!!! I highly recommend this class to anyone who wishes to deepen their meditation practice or develop the skills to teach it to others...Bravo Mandy!!!

As a Psychotherpaist that already uses mindfulness techniques in my practice, I was unsure as to how much more I could possibly learn and benefit from during this training, but all I can say is, WOW! The experience was much more than just the content (which was excellent), but the amount of personal growth I went through has prepared me to be an even better support for my patients. Thank you!

Thanks to Mandy and John, I learned how to meditate at a crucial time in my life. The practice has helped me to navigate so much and I found myself organically referring others to Lifestyle Meditation. Then I decided to take both the 25hr. and the 200hr. with the intention of greater personal development. The result has been life changing for me and I still find myself supporting others others and am grateful for the knowledge and wisdom these programs have provided me.
