What will I learn in training?

Journey Meditation Teacher Training is taught in two parts:

  • The Foundations of Journey Meditation: Learn the essentials of our technique through an in-depth study of the four time-honored meditation practices that comprise Journey: mindfulness, awareness, contemplation, and compassion. We will cover the history of meditation, the science behind it, and its physical, emotional, and social benefits.
  • The Art of Teaching: Through personal development, interactive exercises, and presentation technique, you will develop a rich and powerful teaching ability that will allow for connectivity and engagement from your students. .

Who are the teachers?

Our training programs are led by David Nichtern, an 40-Year senior meditation teacher in the lineage of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Aaron Albert, a personal development and performance leader, and Stephen Sokoler, Journey Meditation Founder & CEO.

When is the next training?

We will be hosting training in NYC starting October 6th. Training will take place every Saturday for 6 weeks, from 9:30a - 5:30p. Upon the conclusion of training, there will be an evaluation and audition to determine if you will be hired as a Journey Meditation Teacher.

HOW MANY HOURS IS THE TRAINING?

Journey Meditation Teacher training is 100 hours. Training consists of lecture, meditation, personal development, exercises, practice, homework and community classes.

What does it cost?

OUR GRADUATES
  • Not only did I learn the foundations of meditation, but also how to create a safe space of vulnerability, compassion and growth for others. I grew personally and left feeling inspired and energized.
    — Mariana Rittenhouse, Brand Strategy Director & Journey Graduat
  • This training course got me excited because we’re not telling people they have to fix or change themselves. Being a Journey teacher is about helping students realize the existing strength they already possess and setting them up with a practice to support life changing self-empowerment.
