In our blended learning model, the week-long residential retreats bookend the year-long program. These retreats are the embodied expression of the wisdom and compassion of mindfulness practice. For the program’s participants, they offer a uniquely rich and immersive practice experience that supports growth and development in two ways: silent mindfulness practice and professional skills development.
In between the two in-person retreats is an intensive 10-month training program. The online components of the program strive to maintain a high degree of personal, interactive learning that is supported by the guiding teachers and fellow practitioners. The online learning elements allow engagement with the course content in a variety of different ways, and participants can expect to spend 3-5 hours each week involved in the following activities: online learning content, live group calls, cohort meetings, daily sits, expert-led workshops and talks, and a teaching lab.
