Certifications

Upon completion of the certification program requirements, you will receive a certification from The Continuing Professional Development Certification Service (CPD). Mindfulness Exercises worked with the CPD Certification Service for several months to meet and exceed their strict requirements for international accreditation of a course like this. This certification has been approved by leaders of Fortune 500 companies, large healthcare providers, yoga studios, and school districts around the world. Earn your internationally accredited certification by completing the following at your own pace from anywhere in the world:

  • Record 40 hours of formal mindfulness practice in your mindfulness meditation log
  • Complete the 'Mindfulness teaching fundamentals video' course and its accompanying workbook
  • Review the 'How to guide mindfulness meditations video' course and its accompanying workbook
  • Submit audio and video of yourself teaching the foundational principles of mindfulness (non-judgmental, moment-to-moment awareness of experience)

How the training works

This program is self-paced, there are no mandatory live sessions. You must complete the requirements to obtain the certification, and the weekly sessions are based on the participants joining, what topics do they have questions about (from the readings and assignments), etc. Access your self-paced online video training courses on 'Mindfulness teaching fundamentals' and 'How to guide mindfulness meditations for well-being and resilience'. Download your own step-by-step pdf study guides and workbooks to track your learning and progress.

Also receive 10 'Deep Dive' premium bonus trainings. Workshops with Sean Fargo will be hosted live on weekdays. Each live group workshop is approximately two hours long, though there is no need to stay the whole time. Sessions will be recorded for those who cannot attend live. Each live workshop will include trainings on how to teach mindfulness and meditation with others in personal and professional settings. This is an opportunity to ask your questions, receive custom support, and meet other mindfulness teachers from around the world.

You will review mindfulness teaching fundamentals, practice a variety of meditations together, and encourage each other along the way. These are optional calls, with no pressure or dogma. Mindfulness Exercises will often incorporate hot-seat coaching, community sharing, and group reflections to help strengthen your skills and to learn from each other. Zoom links to the next upcoming online workshops are posted in the member's dashboard. Attend the workshops you want and no need to RSVP or attend any particular session.

Recordings are posted in the member's section for you to access and practice at any time. Completing this mindfulness teacher training program will benefit your continuing education, strengthen your resume, and serve as a beneficial stepping stone for further professional training. If in doubt, check with your prospective clients or students to be certain this is acceptable.

Timing of sessions (GMT-7/GMT-8)

Timing of sessions of online workshops will be announced later.

Teaching with integrity

1. Help people from diverse walks of life

2. Encourage gentle curiosity

Explore ways of opening to pleasant, unpleasant, and neutral experiences with kind, gentle curiosity for how it actually feels, moment to moment to moment. Identify safe, healing ways of relating with intense experiences internally and externally.

3. Authentically share your wisdom

Develop strategies, tools, and resources to effectively and authentically share your own experiential understanding with others. Learn how to guide individuals and groups, whether in-person or online, in a wide variety of contexts.

4. Increase people's mindfulness in daily life

This is not only about what you do with your eyes closed. It is about how you integrate mindfulness with your relationships, your families, how you eat, how you move, and what you think. Mindfulness is about an integrated way of being.

5. Share mindfulness with confidence

Explore the role of a mindfulness meditation teacher as a guide versus preacher. Learn how you can invite people to notice their own embodied experience, without the judgment, fear, or selfish goals that often get in the way.

6. Help heal people's bodies, hearts, and minds

Safely help people with their deepest challenges. Learn how you can heal old wounds, shed light on hidden shadows, and promote real change in your world in large, heartfelt, meaningful ways - one loving breath at a time.
