Level 2 training & certificate program
This training is ideal for current meditation practitioners who want to continue studying principles of eastern philosophy, Buddhism and incorporating mindfulness practices as an integral part of their lifestyle. You do not need to have taken Level 1 as long as you have an established meditation practice*.
This training will also include teachings from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, as well as lecture and discussion that support the modern application of these classic ideas. The idea is to take the regular meditation practice further, and use the practice of mindfulness as a lens through which to view the world.
This Level 2 teacher training will prepare you to teach students who are beginner to intermediate level if that is your desired path. In order to take Level 2 training for certification, completion of Level 1 is a prerequisite or demonstrated equivalent course-work or practical experience.
*If you have not taken Level 1 please email Dee at to gain approval prior to sign up.
