The Center for Health and Healing in Mount Kisco is currently offering prerequisites for its 100-hour Mindfulness Teacher Training, which begins in the fall. The prerequisite courses, which begin in March, are open to anyone interested in developing a mindfulness meditation practice. They will provide foundational training, including guided meditation instruction, practice, presentations, questions and discussion in small groups. Registration is limited.

The fall teacher training will consist of weekend sessions as well as independent coursework. Applicants must have two years of regular meditation practice, with an interest in the Buddhist view. An informational meeting will be held July 28. The teacher training was developed by Melanie Ryan, a meditation teacher in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Saykong Mipham Rinpoche of the Shambhala Buddhist tradition. She is owner and founder of The Center for Health and Healing, where she teaches regularly and has a contemplative psychotherapy and healing practice.

The training is intended for those with meditation experience who want to incorporate meditation instruction and mindfulness into their professional work.

“Meditation is a powerful and ancient holistic healing tool that can benefit anyone of any race, religion or culture,” Ryan says. “It helps us awaken to love and compassion while cultivating mental strength, stability and clarity.”
