Certification For The Rest of Us

The World Is Waiting For You. Certification Helps You Get Ready For The World.

With MNDFL, That Means All of It.

Once you've completed the Mindfulness Intensive Training (go ahead, check it out, we'll be here when you get back), or if you want to take it all on together, the Certification path lays the world at your feet.


At MNDFL, we’ve always said “there’s no substitute for one human being holding space for another human being” and an intensive Certification Retreat with a diverse cohort that challenges you  is the perfect opportunity to feel this BIG TIME.

Come together with other participants and practice in community to prepare to share mindfulness in modern contexts, while experiencing real-time feedback, coaching, assessments. You'll come out the other side with deepened knowledge and skills, an ability to hold more complexity, and greater confidence in your seat when sharing mindfulness in different settings.

Yes, you’ll officially be a Certified Mindfulness Instructor (CMI) after this last step*, but you’ll also join our extended MNDFL family which will make us officially thrilled.

 75 hours

Who: Experienced practitioners who want to deepen their training and go all the way to receive certification. As part of this path, applicants will complete the Mindfulness Intensive Training (MIT), including live sessions & assessment requirements. 

Requirements (included in package): MIT + Assessments + Practicum Project + Pre-Certification Review

What you'll experience: 

  • Practice
  • Feedback
  • Direct Coaching
  • Assessment
  • Culminates In Certification by MNDFL*


Enter the Movement of Modern Mindfulness, and offer your gift, just as YOU are.


REAL people. REAL practice. REAL Life.

We've Shared MNDFL-ness With...


Sharing Mindfulness With Integrity is No Joke

We welcome all kinds of humans, but let's face it:
not everyone is ready for the integrity & accountability required of certification.

This is for you if you want to...

  • Up-level your professional and personal life with certification by a recognized leader in mindfulness training and education.
  • Improve your life with a way for the benefits of mindfulness to meet you where you are.
  • Deepen your work as an educator, counselor, trainer, healer, or just as a plain human.
  • Learn a language that meets people where they are across lines of race, class, gender, and can speak to the experiences that your fellow humans are having.
  • Develop your mindfulness muscles with renowned and experienced teachers and experts to give you the strength and confidence to flex these techniques anywhere.
  • Discover exactly where you meet mindfulness and it meets you. 

This is NOT for you if...

  • Just want a quick credential with no accountability, no work, no commitment.
  • You aren't ready to put time into up-leveling your practice.
  • You think "watching videos" will make you an instructor without having a commitment to integrity of your own practice.
  • You are using mindfulness to bypass mental health challenges best worked out with the direct support of a professional or healer.
  • You want to bypass the intention work of a spiritual path or lineage your engaged with.
