  • Learn and gain invaluable experience with a small (less than 25) cohort of dedicated practitioners 
  • Facilitation by experienced, trained, diverse faculty committed to your development
  • Curated practicum to sharpen your skills & deepen your understanding during the program
  • Practical application for you to gain hands-on experience sharing mindfulness in your contexts 
  • Experience and learn the evidence-based benefits of mindfulness 
  • Develop tools & skillsets for sharing mindfulness practices with others
  • Observe the intersections between mindfulness, social justice and more
  • Study the actual science and neuroscience behind mindfulness
  • Understand the ethics of mindfulness that allow you to offer it to others with integrity

Cultivating Compassion and Awareness is No Joke

We welcome everyone, but let's face it: not everyone is ready for serious practice.

This is for you if you want to...

  • Enrich 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...

  • 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 a quick credential.

Get MNDFL Trained Like This:

  • Get Expertise: MIT is a live training led by expert MNDFL Facilitators who offer feedback and mentorship focused on your development. They won’t hold your hand, but they’ll be there to support you at your growing edges.
  • Get Intimate: Join a small cohort of no more than 25 people - no one gets lost on page 5 of the Zoom screen
  • Get Collaborative: Within your cohort, you’ll connect weekly with a MNDFL Pod of 5-6 peers to build accountability, ask questions, and stay motivated. With this level of connection, nobody gets left behind.
  • Get Interactive: Weekly sessions are held live on Zoom to connect with MNDFL Facilitators, get your questions answered, and dig deeper into the training content with your MNDFL Pod in breakout rooms. There’s no joining this training anonymously just to “listen in” - this is where your unique mindfulness voice comes alive. 
  • Get Practiced: Theory is all well and good, but what happens when you sit in front of people to share? How about people that are different - that stretch your learning edge? Scripts will get you but so (not very) far. Practicums are project-based learning, because learning-by-doing is the premier way to learn.  
  • Get Ready: Everyone must demonstrate their readiness and commitment by applying for MIT. Yes, to ensure this training is right for you, but also to reflect on what your goals are - saying it out loud (or in this case writing it down in your application) is how you’ll go in prepared to get what you need.
