iBme Mindfulness Teacher Training

"There’s no one way of teaching mindfulness or leading meditation.
We want you to develop your own voice, draw from your experience and not be confined to the 'right way' of teaching. We give you the practice to be responsive, authentic and meet the moment as the best teacher you are."

Khalila Archer, iBme TT Core Faculty


What do you really want out of life? Who do you want to be?
What kind of impact do you want to have in the world?
It’s the space to go deep – this program affords you that.
—Dan V., Teacher Training graduate
