It’s so easy
Are you ready for it?
Here’s how to become a Meditation Teacher…
Call yourself one!
There are no restrictions or regulations in place for Meditation Teachers and coaches. Anyone can become a Meditation Teacher by calling themselves as such.
The Meditation teaching profession isn’t alone as this is also the case for other professions such as Life Coaches, Nutritionists, Personal Trainers, and Health Coaches—and any other type of coach for that matter.
A Better Question Might Be—How Do I Become a Meditation Teacher That Can Transform Lives?
Since anyone, aged 2 yrs+ can call themselves a Meditation Teacher, how to become one probably isn’t the best question to be asking.
Sure, anyone can become a Meditation Teacher—but not everyone can transform the life of another in ways they couldn’t have imagined without walking the road of transformation through Meditation and then teaching it to another.
This takes personal dedication to master the practice of meditation yourself. Evolution into a calm presence—a catalyst for deep mental and spiritual shifts in another.
This my friend, cannot be done simply through a course from Udemy. You need ongoing practice and dedication toward your own meditation practice.
I have recommended a valuable resource toward the end of this post as a place for you to start.
On to the informal regulations of Meditation Teaching.
International Mindfulness and Meditation Alliance
There is a regulating body called the International Mindfulness and Meditation Alliance attempting to regulate the meditation teaching industry. However, their accreditation is not recognized by any country as a legitimate licensing body.
Because of this, the meditation teaching industry remains unregulated. It’s not mandatory anywhere in the world to be an accredited Meditation Teacher in order to teach meditation.
Is Accreditation Recommended?
Like many other unregulated industries, there is an ongoing debate about this. In the end, there are valid points to argue on both sides.
Getting certified through an International Mindfulness and Meditation Alliance accredited Meditation Teacher program does generally indicate the certification quality meets a certain standard.
Meditation is not something one can learn by watching hours of video and all of a sudden knowing how to teach meditation to another. It takes practice, lots and lots of practice. First, you learn to practice meditation yourself, then you learn to guide another, through practice.
It’s Your Choice Whether to get certified
Whether you want to master the art of Meditation Teacher through an accredited program or not is ultimately up to you.
Would I recommend calling yourself a Meditation Teacher without any high-quality training or ongoing practice? Absolutely not.
I surely wouldn’t want to be taught meditation by someone who has no training or received their training from a low-quality certification like what you can find on Udemy.
