  • Establish or deepen your personal practice

  • Complement your current occupation and increase client base

  • Begin career teaching meditation or increase client base

  • Take advantage of the rising popularity and availability of jobs in Meditation

  • Learn and share this ancient knowledge with others!

This certification is NOT right for you if...

  • You are an extremely disciplined and certified meditator, such as an ordained disciple, Dharma leader, or Meditation Teacher Trainer

  • You do not believe you can improve your life

  • You are unwilling to dedicate a portion of your time to a meditation practice 

Become certified in The Dharana Method™

This convenient, 12-week course is the most comprehensive and affordable meditation certificate currently available to lay (non-ordained) teachers. Grow your own compassion, focus, peace and wisdom.   

Students will develop a regular meditation practice; learning various forms of meditation, as well as their benefits and uses. Students will be able to recite meditation history, including prominent gurus and their teachings. Students will also learn to observe and heal their own negative emotions and habits, in order to help future clients with theirs. Students will then learn elements of a healthy, low-stress lifestyle in order to coach clients, as well as implement them in their own lives. Students will also memorize mantras, chakras and tenets of Ayurveda so they may be able to give future clients comprehensive tools for sustainable peace and happiness.

FAQ's about The Dharana Method™ certification

How much does it cost? - $720 (email me to ask about a $200 discount - simplegreenme@gmail.com). I highly recommend Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction certification ($9,000) or Deepak Chopra's Primordial Sound Meditation certification ($5800) because they are both wonderful techniques (and teachers of mine)! But they are relatively expensive. My cost is low because you have the option to join us virtually, and I focus on volume to train as many people as I can to start creating world peace, NOW. **Payment plans are available! Again, I don't want finances to stop you from training!

What happens when I finish the course? - You receive your Dharana Method™ certificate, registering you as a Certified Meditation Teacher - 100-hour (CMT-100hr), which will satisfy credentialing requirements at corporate, academic and private institutions, as well as for your own meditation instruction practice and/or business. 

What's so special about the Dharana Method™? - You can find out more about the method here, and by experiencing it in a private session or in this certification course.

Why choose this certification, over others?  - Besides its low cost, comprehensive content, and minimal time restraints on your life, this method is proven for me and my students as the STRONGEST way to connect quickly and easily with meditation, and your clients. Read what former students say about this particular method.
