SYLLABUS BRIEF

Welcome to our 200 Meditation Teacher Training.

In The Veda Center’s 200 hour, online, meditation teacher training, you’ll learn everything about meditation. You’ll gain access to over 300 videos, course quizzes, and practical, hands-on teaching assignments. Throughout the training we’ll be with you walking you through what to do each day. You’ll learn the traditional and modern perspective of the 4 major categories of meditation. You will learn to teach 3 techniques from each of the four categories of meditation–12 techniques in total. You will learn to analyze the techniques to understand the timing and delivery of each of the techniques. Charlie will introduce you to common questions and common experiences students have and how to move through discomforts and answer questions as they come up. Each day you’ll take micro quizzes to reinforce what you’ve learned, and each week you’ll jump on the forums to answer questions asked in the lectures and upload videos of yourself teaching the techniques. By the end of this training you’ll not only be a master meditator, but you’ll have mastered how to comfortably and confidently teach the techniques and built a community of colleagues to grow and collaborate with from here on out. Through a series of lectures, practices, peer reviews, and assessments, you’ll master these fundamental types of meditation.

HOW IT WORKS

VIDEOS+LECTURES

This is where you’ll establish an expert level of understanding for each type of meditation. Every day you will gain access to a set of videos. The videos will tell you exactly what you should do that day, what meditation techniques you’ll practice each day, and lectures that dives deep into various aspects of the technique.

PRACTICE & ANALYSIS

This is where you’ll take what you learned in the lectures and put it into practice. You’ll perfect your technique and analyze how each technique is taught. You will analyze formula and timing of each technique so you can teach students to take the correct angle to access different states of consciousness. You will practice teaching the techniques, perfecting your delivery and gaining confidence.

APPLICATION

This is where you’ll learn how to teach, crafting responses to questions your students will likely have. You’ll get feedback on those responses from your peers in the program. At the end of each application phase, you’ll put what you’ve learned to the test and teach your own class. Your peers will see your work and give you support, encouragement and feedback on your teaching method. Your instructors will also be highlighting select teaching videos and giving feedback to help you grow as teachers.

CERTIFICATION

At the end of successfully completing the training you’ll receive an official Level 1 Meditation Teacher Certification from The Veda Center LLC and be well on your way to teaching your own class.

All our courses are produced by The Veda Center and overseen by their lead instructors including Charlie Knoles, Liddy Arens and more.
