MBWP Costs and Completion

Teacher Certification Completion Time and Costs

  • The average time for completion of this program is one year.
  • Tuition costs for the entire program are $1900, which covers enrollment fees for two workshops and the 10-month guided practicum. These costs do not include room, board, or travel expenses associated with attending the workshop.
  • Payments for workshops are divided into twelve installments; (a) an initial $500 payment for the introductory workshop, (b) monthly payments of $90 for the 10-month guided practicum, and (c) a final $500 payment for the final practicum workshop.

The initial stages of MBWP are focused on developing physiological regulation and embodied grounding as a means of aiding meditative practice and artistic expression. Working with our breath and bodies helps to calm our nervous system, facilitating our ability to anchor our awareness in the present moment.

During the middle stages of the curriculum, concentration and awareness are cultivated through mindful and deliberate exploration of our senses, emotions, and patterns of thought, leading to greater clarity, stability, and equanimity.

As we non-judgmentally examine our habitual ways of feeling, thinking, and acting, we gain insight into how our perceptions color reality, giving us the opportunity to let go of unfruitful ways of experiencing and responding to ourselves and others. We then work on reframing our experiences such that they are aligned with our personal values.

During the final stages of MBWP training, after reducing our reactivity through mindful awareness, we develop the capacity to act intentionally in the world, using our experiences, aspirations, values, and ethics as a compass for wise and compassionate action.
