This month, you'll learn what being a meditation teacher is all about (it's far different from just being a master meditator yourself!). Charlie will go over how to address common questions students have and how to move through discomforts that often arise in the transition to becoming a teacher. Then, you'll get into the first type of meditation—present moment awareness. Through a series of lectures, practices, peer reviews, and assessments, you'll master this fundamental type of meditation.
You'll learn the ins and outs of this meditation, until you're able to help others harness its power. Charlie will go over how the psychology of priming works, where luck comes in, and how creative visualization has a proven scientific ability to change our reality, from helping with weight loss to actually achieving goals you set. He'll also help you work through triggers that may impede your students' progress and how to help them move past any resistance or lack of focus that commonly appear in this type of meditation.
Charlie will take you through the history and concepts behind this powerful practice and how our modern understanding of neuroscience has actually validated thousand-year-old claims. You'll learn how to use mantras in meditation and how to address superstitions people often have about the practice. He'll then teach you several mantras that have been proven to work well for many students, going over where and when they're best applied. In the assessment phase, you'll work through questions you may run into while teaching transcendence meditation, so you're well-prepared to take it out into the world!
Energized Body & Mind Meditation is the—you guessed it—most energizing form of meditation. In this final month, Charlie will teach you the powerful impact the breath has on the body, getting into both ancient wisdom and how our modern research on the science of breath and the autonomic nervous system have influenced our greater understanding. You'll learn several different types of breath, including chi breathing, kriyas, ujjayi breath, circular breathing, and more, taking away not only technique tips but best-use cases for your teaching. In your practice and analysis phase, you'll take this practice even deeper, developing a mastery of every inhale and exhale until you're ready to share the power of breath with your own students.
HOW IT WORKS
Where you'll establish an expert level of understanding for each type of meditation.
Where you'll take what you learned in the lectures and put it into practice. You'll perfect your technique and analyze how these practices made you feel so that you're prepared to help your students through the same process.
You'll take online tests to make sure you've understood everything from the lectures, practice, and analysis sufficiently. You can take the tests as many times as you need to.
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!
