Meditation Teachers - Support and Development Retreat & Workshop

April 12, 7-9pm and April 13, 10-5pm

As the demand for mindfulness and meditation instruction grows, so does the importance of professional development and peer support for meditation teachers. This retreat is designed to help you maintain your teaching with integrity, hone new skills, prevent burnout through peer support and sharing, and learn and exchange strategies and experience with other teachers. 

Led by IDP teachers Rey Horowitz, Dan Cayer, Mia Tootill, Manaslu Gurung, and Tess Dworman, this special program will include guided meditation, presentations on relevant topics, group discussion, and experiential exercises. 

Mindfulness and meditation instructors from all traditions and backgrounds are welcome.
