MEDITATION TEACHER TRAINING
Next Session Begins April 9th

A 12-week certification program for people on a mission to help heal themselves, their communities, and the world one breath at a time.

You Feel Called To Serve 

You are a teacher, therapist, coach, or healer who wants to bring meditation and healing to your community.

Meditation Group

You Believe In The Power Of Meditation And Want To…

Deepen your lifelong practice of self-inquiry and reflection.

Complement your current work with the benefits of meditation.

Support others as they find healing through meditation practices.

Meditation Is An Ancient Practice

THOUSANDS OF YEARS OF INFORMATION CAN FEEL DAUNTING TO DOWNLOAD

The more mainstream meditation becomes, the more challenging it is to tell fact from fad. You want the most up-to-date, evidence-based information, from a variety of disciplines, in an immersive environment.

DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES

Empower yourself with a diverse mix of philosophies so that instead of using one-size-fits-all meditation you can meet each person in your community where they are.

IMMERSIVE LEARNING

Committing to an intensive course helps you dig into the material. Leverage the power of community, accountability, and full immersion. 

TRUSTED INFORMATION

Cut through the noise with an expertly curated curriculum. Navigate the history, psychology, science, and applications of meditation with confidence and ease.

You Could... 

Continue piecemealing your meditation knowledge together through unreliable Google searches, one-off meditation workshops, and misleading social media posts.

But you have no time to waste. 

Your community needs you NOW.

Virtual Training

SIMILAR VIRTUAL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS ARE OFTEN COMPLETELY SELF-PACED, PRE-RECORDED MODULES. 

This Training Is Different.

We understand the value of LIVE instruction so you can ask questions in real time, learn from the perspectives of your peers, and feel motivated to stay the course. This program was structured to give you as much live, hands-on instruction as possible in an accessible, virtual setting. Weekly modules offer self-paced portions to fit your busy schedule.

 

Weekly Meditation Practices 

3-times per week we will come together for  30 minute meditation sessions to immerse you in the practice. Replay videos allow you to revisit the information later if you should miss a class.

 

Mon, Wed, Fri at 11:30am ET

Bi-weekly Virtual Classes

Our live classes will take place on Saturdays for 2-hours. There will be opportunities for lecture, journaling, inquiry, breathwork, discussion, readings, practice teaching, real-time feedback, direct coaching, assessment and community building.

Sat at 11am ET, beginning Jan. 8th

Personal Meditation Coaching

Your instructor, Jessica Crow, will cohesively guide your learning, connect the various disciplines in an accessible way, and get to know you so that the content can be delivered in a way that appeals to your needs, goals, and background.

Frequently asked questions

Why now?


There is no time like the present! As part of our first cohort, you have access to special pricing. I have offered 1:1 meditation coaching, training, and private sessions for decades. However, this is the most affordable, accessible program to date. You’ll get the benefits of private instruction and coaching in a small group setting.




Do you offer payment plans or discounts?


Similar courses could cost upwards of $3,000. I designed this inaugural certification to be more financially accessible. Meditation has the potential to serve our communities now, more than ever. That’s why the CNTRD Meditation Teacher Training is offered at a more affordable cost. We also offer 3 and 6-month payment plans so you don’t have to sacrifice your goals for your budget. We do not offer discounts at this time. If you are interested in sponsoring a teacher trainee through financial scholarship, please reach out!




Can I complete this course while working full-time?


While everyone’s circumstances are different, I designed this course for working professionals. While I cannot guarantee every session will fit your schedule, I have intentionally scheduled our class sessions for 2-hours on Saturdays. All weekly meditation sessions will be on weekday afternoons, EST as I am based in New York City. In between live sessions, on demand lessons will be available as well as audio meditations and readings so that you can move through the materials at times that work for your busy schedule.




Do I have to attend all live sessions?


All participants are encouraged to attend every session. Not only will you get the most out of your experience, but your perspective will add depth to our class discussions. That being said, things happen! If you are concerned that you may not be able to make a session, please notify your instructor as soon as possible so that we can make arrangements for any content you may miss.




Is certification guaranteed?


No. Integrity is highly valued at CNTRD Wellness. While I will do everything in my power to support your journey and help you achieve certification, it is up to you to do the work. We hold high standards for our teacher trainees and so certification is not guaranteed and is at my discretion. If you need more time to complete coursework, speak to me to extend the deadlines beyond 12 weeks. I'm happy to work with you. This meditation teacher certificate is eligible for Yoga Alliance CE Credits for participants who qualify.




How do I register?


You can begin the registration process by submitting an application. Click Apply Now below to get started. Taking the time to respond to the prompts will allow me to understand if this program is the right fit for your goals. It will provide me with insight about your meditation journey so far so that I can best support you. I’ll be in touch within 48-hours to share next steps.




Who is the program for?


This program is open to all who want to deepen their own personal meditation practice and those who want to develop the skills to mindfully share meditation and its benefits with others. Beginners and seasoned meditation ,practitioners are welcome and there are no prerequisites besides an open mind and a willingness to learn.




What is 'external accreditation'? What about continuing education credits?


Outside accreditation is not necessary to become an experienced, successful yoga teacher, nor is it essential for gaining access to yoga studios or corporate workplaces (even though some schools claim this in their advertising). To date there is no official alliance or foundation dedicated to overseeing meditation teacher training programs or certification. Some trainings advertise 'outside' accreditations from companies that have nothing at all to do with the science or practice of mindfulness or meditation, and provide no proper program or content review. These are basically stamps on the certificate of completion that are purchased from a third-party business. What about Yoga Alliance? Meditation teacher trainings can count for YA continuing education credits if the teacher is an experienced yoga teacher with YACEP status. This program is worth 100 CEUs with Yoga Alliance). For now, please carefully research the practical and teaching experience and background of your teacher and the writer of the program you apply to.🌟
