“My understanding of Buddhist practice has deepened, my ability and confidence as a teacher has grown exponentially, I’ve started my own teaching practice and am offering my first online program this late fall/early winter. I have regular students and I am so happy to be doing this.”

— IDP Member & Former Teacher Training Student

“Mindfulness shows us what is happening in our bodies, our emotions, our minds, and in the world. Through mindfulness, we avoid harming ourselves and others.”

— Thich Nhat Hanh

“The teachers are why this program is so valuable. The different backgrounds of the teachers gives a wide variety of teachings and perspectives on mindfulness. And they are spacious! How glorious to have a teacher who can give you the space you need to learn!”
