Deepen Your Mindfulness, Share Your Wisdom & Help Others with this Flexible & Accredited Online Program


A Letter from Sean Fargo


Dear fellow mindfulness practitioner,

It is with great joy that I announce the re-opening of our Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Program.

The first iteration was a huge success, with hundreds of students enrolled and most of them now successfully teaching mindfulness meditation in their fields of business, healthcare, coaching and education.

We've supported many people to create mindfulness courses, lead corporate workshops, integrate it with their therapeutic specialty, coach individuals, help kids and teachers, publish books, and more.

Now, we’re facing one of the most difficult times in human history. More than ever, we need people sharing mindfulness to help others while deepening their own practice.

Teaching mindfulness takes courage. 

Helping people step into what feels scary is not easy. But one of the greatest gifts we can give others, other than our own presence, is to help them be present. 

We've trained many people with these questions and doubts:

  • Am I good enough to teach mindfulness?
  • What will people think of me if I call myself a mindfulness teacher?
  • What if I don’t sound like some of the famous mindfulness teachers? 
  • How can I safely lead meditations for people who are struggling? 
  • There are so many experienced teachers out there. Who would want to learn from me?
  • How do I gain professional credibility as a mindfulness meditation teacher?
  • What kind of curriculum should I start with?
  • How would I structure a class, workshop or program?
  • What if I don’t know the answers to people’s questions?
  • Should I combine mindfulness with other trainings or practices?
  • How would I market myself with humility and integrity? 
  • Can I earn income teaching mindfulness?
  • What if people judge me?

This Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training Program will build your confidence and help you overcome the self-criticism and doubt that’s preventing you from serving others in your greatest capacity.


Program Benefits:


  • Self-Paced Trainings with No Pressure, Religious Dogma or Deadlines
  • Brandable Mindfulness Teaching Curriculum for Professional Teachings
  • Personalized Guidance From World-Renowned Mindfulness Teachers
  • Evidence-Based Trainings for Enhancing Well-Being, Healing & Resilience
  • Accreditation Recognized by Corporations, Hospitals & Schools
  • Supportive Community of Fellow Mindfulness Teachers Around the World
  • No Hidden Requirements, Requisites, Travel or Renewal Fees

The world needs more mindfulness teachers.

That's why I believe that mindfulness teacher training should be accessible to all. It is an honor for us to share these offerings. That’s why this program is more affordable and efficient than other mindfulness teacher training options out there - and is free of dogma, pressure, and competitiveness.

  • You can start for as little as $49 / month. We have no commercial office buildings, retreat centers or a large staff, so we pass those savings on to you.
  • 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. 
  • The only prerequisite is a minimum of 2 years of sincere mindfulness meditation experience.

What We Care About


Helping People From Diverse Walks of Life

Learn how to teach mindfulness meditation to the people you care about, in a way that feels authentic and natural to you. 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.

Encouraging 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 Sharing Your Own 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 it's in-person or online - in a wide variety of contexts.

Increasing 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.

Sharing Mindfulness with Confidence & Integrity

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 judgment, fear or selfish goals that often get in the way.

Healing Our World & Our Planet

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.


Flexible. Affordable. Accessible.


We believe everyone who wants to, should be able to access mindfulness teacher training. 

But most mindfulness teaching certification programs run between $5,000 - $10,000.

They require strict prerequisites, travel and homework that must be completed within tight deadlines. Training is geared toward large audiences, with copyrighted curriculum, and the teachers are rarely accessible.

Online courses are just as impersonal – you log on to view live lectures or pre-recorded videos, with little opportunity for real-time feedback or personalized guidance from the teacher.

This program is designed to be affordable, efficient and personalized. You’ll have everything you need to teach mindfulness with impact, integrity and confidence - all with NO pressure, requirements, dogma or monthly commitment. We consider it a gift to serve you and to help spread this knowledge.

Praise for Sean Fargo


Mike Borozdin

Senior Director of Engineering at DocuSign

“Sean created a safe, non threatening environment to introduce the DocuSign team to mindfulness and meditation. I really appreciated how Sean led the team through the science behind these practices. I would recommend Sean to anyone who is interested in introducing mindfulness and meditation in a corporate environment.”

James Baraz

Co-Founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center; Bestselling Author of Awakening Joy

"Sean has something special to offer others: his own unique way of sharing mindfulness with clarity, heartfulness and generosity. This comes from years of deepening his own meditation practice as a monk and practitioner in monasteries in Asia and the US, studying under the most respected teachers in the Theravada Buddhist tradition. I have great respect for Sean and highly recommend him for anyone wanting to deepen their own practice."

Deiric McCann

Executive Vice President Profiles International, Inc

“Every coach should be required to undergo extensive mindfulness training, as Sean has. His effortless and absolute presence, which is powerful by unobtrusive listening and a finely honed compassion, are backed up by a common-sense approach to helping you find your way to ideas and solutions in a way that feels so easy you wondered why you ever needed a coach at all! This is truly the essence of good coaching.”

Shauna Shapiro

Mindfulness Researcher & Professor

"Sean is an extraordinary human being and brings all of his resources to the work he does. He is hard working, passionate, caring, and clear seeing, and brings a graceful precision to his work. I highly recommend him."

Ruben Kalra, MD, MBA

Founder, WellBrain

"Sean's background as a monk and as an experienced meditation teacher will make you feel comfortable & help you identify with your greater purpose in life. Despite the connotations that may come with being a monk, Sean is extremely relatable and would be extraordinarily helpful for anyone looking to learn or improve their mindfulness practice. Not only is Sean a good person with a big heart, but he is also a fantastic teacher for both individuals and groups."

Garrett McNamara
