Facilitator Training & Certification program
Become a Certified Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator
with this highly practical course, toolkit & learning community.
Experienced meditators gain competency to:
Skillfully facilitate mindfulness meditation sessions
Implement workplace or community mindfulness
Your path to being a confident, skilled facilitator
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 the field's best practices and
stay current as the field evolves.
Don't make assumptions - there are many people leading mindfulness and meditation incorrectly.
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.

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 are very diverse, but they all share the same goal -- to help others. Some are employees working in organizations who 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, are 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 and belong to a like-minded community.
All of our students know that facilitating 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 evidence-based, secular, trauma and neurodiversity-informed practices and understand what they're doing and why.
