(THIS IS IMPORTANT)

A VERY QUIET PRACTICE IS MAKING A LOT OF NOISE AND WE’RE ALL FINALLY LISTENING. MODERN TIMES REQUIRE A MODERN APPROACH TO MEDITATION AND THAT’S WHAT M N D F L IS ALL ABOUT.

Stephen+Wilson+Photography+Why-+MNDFL+NYC+November+2015-142.jpg

M N D F L EXISTS TO ENABLE HUMANS TO FEEL GOOD.

And, well, it’s time to help more humans feel all that goodness. We know firsthand how meaningful, beneficial and life-changing meditation can be. We also know the value of highly qualified authentic teachers who have an ability to make the practice accessible and relatable.

In 2019, we want to do more than share meditation with you - we want to empower you to teach it.

We’re looking for a handful of humans who want to gain the knowledge, experience and confidence to spread that meditation goodness.

You in?

We hope so.

3 1/2 Months. 200 Hours. Energy! Kundalini Meditation Training.

This 200 hour meditation teacher training program will give you the necessary knowledge and experience to incorporate a deeper understanding of Kundalini meditations and mantras as well as how to bring these powerful teachings into led meditative experiences. The popular Energy classes at MNDFL work with breath or mantras from the Kundalini tradition to naturally increase energy levels. They are a radical way to accelerate your expansion of mind. In addition to being certified to lead MNDFL Energy classes at MNDFL, you will be able to lead Energy and Mantra meditations in corporate, non-profit and other situations (Kundalini meditation, but not Kundalini yoga).

The 3 1/2 month curriculum includes access to four NYC weekend retreats, in-depth weekly workshops, mentor check ins, and unlimited classes at M N D F L (including Energy & Mantra). The course combines 150 classroom hours with 40 hours of home study/practice and 10 hours of group work/meet ups.

Weekends and workshops include guided practice and deep explorative sessions with M N D F L teachers, Amanbir Singh & Valerie Oula, and Mahan Kirn, Karena Virginia, Hansujot & other guests in the powerful and transformative tradition of Kundalini.

This training is open to:

  • meditation teachers of all traditions
  • graduates of any level 1 training of Kundalini Yoga
  • graduates of the MNDFL teacher training program

…who are looking for a deeper understanding of Kundalini Meditation, Pranayam, and Mantra to enhance their skill-set of offerings while gaining a deeper understanding of this vast tradition. Also included in the program are useful tools for holding the meditative space, and how to adapt a class to a meditative and gentle experience while still honoring the teachings as originally taught. Finally, we develop a deeper understanding of the business side of teaching overall and teaching in corporate settings.

The price: $2200 Early Bird Rate, $2500 thereafter.
