Whether you want to start mindfulness in your workplace, or have already run a course or a small informal practice . . .
Here is a practical way to quickly start or grow a self-sustaining program that staff will respect. Train and equip your own employees for long-lasting benefits.
No need to spend money on outside contractors or get meditation teacher training, especially when your budget is tight.
The Calm Monkey is the first in the world to provide:
Online Mindfulness Meditation Facilitator Training and Certification,
Workplace mindfulness implementation mentorship, and
Thought leadership in combining change management with mindfulness to create change resiliency. See study results from the 'Dealing with Change meditation study'.
Since 2014, The Calm Monkey has been expertly training employees who already have mindfulness and meditation experience so they can gain support, design, promote, start-up, coordinate, facilitate and evaluate the benefits of a great program for their co-workers. Your employees-trained-as-facilitators do not need to take in-depth, expensive meditation teacher training, but they do need to be equipped with the skills and tools to be good at it and avoid mistakes and risks to employees. Everything they need is provided in this training from The Calm Monkey.
This program teaches experienced meditators to:
1) Implement workplace mindfulness - start-up and grow an ongoing mindfulness practice.
2) Skillfully facilitate mindfulness meditation sessions - with today's best practices.
When your own employees are trained as facilitators to run your internal program, it creates a grassroots momentum that engages both the facilitators and the attendees. In this training, they are taught best practices on how to build trust, create a respected program, be trauma-aware, avoid mistakes, and are given everything they need to be immediately equipped.

Don't risk program failure by having employees facilitate without proper
training for the workplace environment.
They will learn to facilitate in a secular, workplace-friendly and trauma-sensitive manner.
They can complete this program at their own pace to fit their busy schedule. Employees are usually facilitating as volunteers so joining a cohort-style program with a rigid schedule isn't tenable for most people.
If you have a group to train, it is highly recommended they can move through the program according to your pre-defined schedule. It's up to you as to how short or long the schedule is, but they do need to complete the program within a six month timeframe, with Wendy Quan's guidance along the way.
Individual prices are below.
After a discussion, you will receive a proposal to train and mentor your group.

Wendy's program was the perfect fit for our facilitators. Her program brought up many perspectives that were relevant and timely and also new learning for our facilitators.
At the end of the training, many of our facilitators said the best part of the program was the coaching received from Wendy. She truly saw the gifts of each person while also holding to a standard and asking for more practice from the candidate if needed.
We also had two group sessions with her where she offered many insights which we'll implement into our group. We thank Wendy for her leadership in the mindfulness community and developing this program!
