A letter from Sean Fargo


Dear friends,

We’re facing one of the most difficult times in human history. People around the world are more stressed, anxious and depressed than ever.  

The world needs more mindfulness meditation teachers. That's why I believe that mindfulness teacher training should be accessible to all.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to find mindfulness teacher trainings that are customizable for your unique mindfulness experience and teaching goals. It's also difficult to receive accredited certification for less than $7,000 and two years of intensive training. And even if you certify, it's difficult to find a brandable mindfulness curriculum that you can immediately use to teach your own classes, courses and workshops.

This program solves all of this for you.

For 5 years, we have helped hundreds of meditators to teach mindfulness in business, healthcare, coaching, wellness and education with integrity, confidence and credibility. This program is internationally accredited by The Continuing Professional Development Certification Service.

It's all completely self-paced without pressure, deadlines, travel or dogma.

This program can help you:


  • enhance your own mindfulness and meditation abilities
  • gain confidence as a mindfulness and meditation teacher
  • integrate mindfulness and meditation within your professional role
  • build credibility by sharing evidence-based research and time-tested practices
  • emphasize safe, responsible ways that support long-term growth and resilience
  • increase trust, engagement and relevancy with the people you serve 
  • find your own voice as a mindfulness meditation teacher

For real-world outcomes that make a meaningful impact:

  • Create your own classes, courses or workshops
  • Lead business wellness programs
  • Coach individuals to their highest potential
  • Record and share your own guided meditations
  • Help heal trauma, addiction, grief, depression and anxiety
  • Integrate with yoga, reiki, hypnotherapy, DBT, ACT and other modalities
  • Support families, parents, teachers & kids
  • Increase self-care and resilience for burned-out caregivers

Weekly Personalized Mentoring Sessions

Access Sean Fargo for up to 2 hours each week during open office hours on Zoom video.  This is an opportunity to ask your questions, receive custom support, and meet other mindfulness teachers from around the world. We will review mindfulness teaching fundamentals, practice a variety of meditations together, and encourage each other along the way. These are optional calls, with no pressure or dogma.

*Brandable 10-Session Teaching Curriculum (added fee)

This is for compassionate individuals who sincerely want to help others.

Diverse professionals from all walks of life have used this program to deepen their own mindfulness, develop their careers, strengthen their credibility, and make a bigger impact on the people they serve.

It is an honor for us to share these offerings.

Our program is an affordable, accessible, and efficient option for you to become a certified mindfulness teacher - and is free of dogma, pressure, and competitiveness.

  • Learn at your own pace. You can review course content and resources anytime, anywhere.
  • Focus your training on what is most relevant to YOUR students and YOUR industry. We don’t require you to teach a specifically branded curriculum. 

If you've been thinking of becoming a certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, if you've been practicing mindfulness for at least 2 years, and if you've completed mindfulness meditation retreats, I welcome you to register for our program.

Thank you for wanting to share the benefits of mindfulness and meditation with others. I look forward to supporting your path.

Teaching with integrity

Help people from diverse walks of life

No need to focus on teaching one kind of person with one prescriptive point of view. This program can be tailored for you, based on your experience, values and goals. Learn how to teach mindfulness meditation to the people you care about, in a way that feels authentic and natural to you.

Encourage gentle curiosity

Explore ways of opening to pleasant, unpleasant and neutral experiences with kind, gentle curiosity for how it actually feels, moment to moment to moment. Identify safe, healing ways of relating with intense experiences internally and externally. 

Authentically share your wisdom

Develop strategies, tools, and resources to effectively and authentically share your own experiential understanding with others. Learn how to guide individuals and groups, whether in-person or online, in a wide variety of contexts.

Increase people's mindfulness in daily life

This is not only about what we do with our eyes closed - it's about how we integrate mindfulness with our relationships, our families, how we eat, how we move, and what we think. Mindfulness is about an integrated way of being.

Share mindfulness with confidence 

Explore the role of a mindfulness meditation teacher as a guide versus preacher. Learn how we can invite people to notice their own embodied experience, without the judgment, fear or selfish goals that often get in the way.

Help heal people's bodies, hearts and minds

Safely help people with their deepest challenges. Learn how we can heal old wounds, shed light on hidden shadows, and promote real change in our world in large, heartfelt, meaningful ways... one loving breath at a time.
