ONLY FOUR SPOTS REMAIN. Get Your Application In ASAP!

In this time of social distancing we need companionship now more than ever! Join the 2020 Mind Oasis Intensive with a buddy. One fee gets you both registered! THERE ARE ONLY FIVE of these special spots. Find a friend. Fill out your application and boom! You’re in.

Because of the Intensive, I am now double-re-committed to my daily practice…and because of my daily practice, I find I am more compassionate, calmer, quieter (in my mind and my heart), and more able to deal with the ups & downs of life. – Maria N.

This 300-hour intensive is designed to amplify your practice and your life. With two-tracks (teacher training and personal growth), you can decide where you want to go on this journey. You can join from the comfort of your home or anywhere you are in the world, as all classes – including the opening retreat – are live and online. They are interactive – this is not a pre-recorded course. Real training. Real talk. Real people.

New this year! Community, Connection & Compassion: Equity in Wellness a 3-part workshop with Sheena Brockington-Taylor

As a meditation teacher, you have a unique opportunity to offer students practices to care for themselves, their families, and communities. Each student comes to the cushion with their own stories, experiences and challenges. It’s our responsibility to meet each student with an open heart and mind. We’ll discover how a compassionate teacher builds community and connection while creating a welcoming space for all students. We’ll explore ways to make wellness practices accessible, equitable, and inclusive for all students regardless of their race, economic status, size, sexual identity, gender, or abilities. You’ll leave our sessions with a personal action plan for championing and creating equity in the meditation space and beyond.

Teacher Training: If you’re looking to teach meditation, this intensive is designed to train and certify you as a meditation teacher that is well-qualified to teach live in-person or online classes, and/or guided recorded meditations. After eight-weeks of shoring up your personal practice, you’ll start your practicum teaching meditation on Community Meditation. At the end of March, you will receive a 300-Hour certificate of completion and it is our intention to provide you a place to teach on Mind Oasis if you so choose.

The Mind Oasis Intensive was one the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I felt like I joined a community truly committed to bettering themselves, each other, and the world at large. Led by Karuna, her wealth of knowledge, guidance, and compassion are inspiring and supportive. I would highly recommend this program to anyone at any stage of their meditation journey. — Shaina S.

Personal Growth: If you simply want to reap the benefits of an intensive but aren’t sure if you want to become a teacher – this track is for you. You won’t have to decide for the first eight-weeks of the intensive, as both tracks will be engaged in the exact same activities up until this point. If at the end of the first eight-weeks you know that you don’t want to teach, then you will engage in attending classes taught by those in the Teacher Training and other classes offered on Mind Oasis rather than the practicum teaching opportunity via Community Meditation.
