Skillfully facilitate mindfulness meditation sessions

and

Implement workplace or community mindfulness

You don't need to become a meditation teacher to help others cultivate the benefits of mindfulness, but you need to know you're doing it right.

Ensure you lead others with current best practices.

Other programs may teach you how to lead mindfulness practices,

but this program also shows you how to obtain support, promote, deliver, grow & measure a grassroots ongoing workplace or community program.

 

The Calm Monkey is the pioneer in mindfulness facilitator training and workplace implementation.

This began in 2014 and other programs look to this as best-in-class.

 

*  Super flexible to suit your busy schedule  *

*  No rigid cohort schedule  *

*  Be part of a great community that supports your ongoing learning, small and large group interactions  *

*  Wendy Quan is your mentor  *

 

Our students say:  "This is the perfect program for those wanting to lead mindfulness for others. It's so practical and flexible to suit MY schedule!  The community is amazing and so is the personal growth."

Program highlights

Quick-start Toolkit

Over 70 meditation scripts, mindfulness practices, background music, outlines for running introduction and ongoing live guided meditation sessions, communication templates to promote your program, handouts and survey questions to capture your program's benefits.

This is literally everything you need to start a grassroots program right away!

30-40 hours & oh, so flexible!​

 

Online, flexible, do-at-your-own-pace.

Up to 6 months to complete, go as fast or slowly as you wish.

 

Highly practical hit-the-ground-running course and assignments that students rate as 'High to Superb Value' across the board.

(Meditation teacher training can be 200+ hours, take several years and cost $6,000+ and does not cover how to implement a program.)

Large group interaction and continuous learning through live Zoom meetings.

24/7 online community through Slack.

Continuing education, sharing and support to stay current with trends & controversies and get new ideas.  You won't feel alone!

'Practice Sandbox'​

 

Here's where you can observe others leading, provide feedback, get the jitters out, experiment and have fun meeting others around the world in this small, intimate setting.

You will pick up great tips for your own facilitation.

Attend as much as you like for practice and community connection!

You'll be Certified

 

You'll complete the coursework, assignments and submit a video of your leading a group session.

Who is this program for?

Practitioners of mindfulness & meditation who want to help others, and those who have been facilitating without credentials

Our students' backgrounds and roles vary greatly, but they all share the same goal -- to help others. Some are employees working in organizations wanting to help their co-workers.  Some are service providers, entrepreneurs or small business owners who want to add mindfulness to their service offerings and/or serve community groups. Some facilitate as a hobby, volunteers or are retired.  

 

Some want to make the leap from being a practitioner to a skilled facilitator with confidence.  Many are already facilitating but need quality training and credentials, because they want to know they're doing this correctly.

 

All of our students know that this is not as simple as reading out a meditation script.  They want to do this right, avoid risks to their participants and themselves, serve their audiences with ethical, secular, trauma and neurodiverse-informed practices and understand what they're doing and why.

What our students say

Exactly What I Needed, When I Needed It!

Sufyan from Chicago

As a civil rights attorney helping to lead a NGO, I work with my teams and allies to provide support and services to communities facing hate and discrimination.  I realized the toll this work takes and was searching for a way to provide resources to those I work with.

 

I reached out to Wendy Quan and it was life changing!  She encouraged me to strengthen my own mindfulness practice and then apply, and enroll, into the Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator Certification course.

 

Being able to lead my teams and community partners through mindfulness practices has helped us not only take care of ourselves better, but also to be better advocates for those we serve.  

 

The Calm Monkey community has been incredibly thoughtful and helpful throughout the Certification process and has remained supportive as I continue to learn new and better ways to facilitate!

Thank you to The Calm Monkey!
