The Path’s 100-hour teacher training, in partnership with the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science, is people who want to master mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation, become a meditation teacher, and for doctors, yoga teachers, therapists and other professionals who want to skillfully and knowledgeably integrate meditation into their work.

This is a comprehensive three-month course that takes students through the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold Path and other key components of Buddhist wisdom. This is also an experiential course. Students will practice meditation on their own and enjoy expertly guided meditations during classes. Students will also progress to lead each other, and our teachers, during class time and record meditations on their own to share with other teacher trainers.

Our teachers for this program are extraordinary, with degrees in neuroscience, psychology, medicine and Buddhist studies. Students will also enjoy some yoga/movement during each class, expertly guided by our teachers.

All students who pass this training will receive a certificate for Mindfulness and Lovingkindness Meditation from the Nalanda Institute for Contemplative Science and The Path.

Our next training will take place in spring, 2019. Students attend 4 weekend afternoon “retreats” and 12 Wednesday evening classes.
