Teaching mindfulness techniques to youth is exponentially more effective when it stems from a base of personal practice. For this reason, participants must establish a personal mindfulness practice prior to this training through our Mindfulness Fundamentals course or any one of the approved trainings listed here.


The course is taught by Megan Cowan, Chris McKenna, and Vinny Ferraro. This team has over 40 years of combined mindfulness practice and over 30 years of teaching mindfulness and/or emotional intelligence to children and adolescents, as well as experience training many thousands of adults. Their work is featured in documentary films and, and MTV’s “If You Really Knew Me”.


In addition to the Program Team, the online Curriculum Training also has a Guiding Teacher. The Guiding Teacher directs the learning process by synthesizing emerging themes, answering questions, and providing ongoing participant feedback. All of our Guiding Teachers have over a decade of mindfulness practice and broad teaching experience with different youth populations. Your Guiding Teacher is available to answer questions throughout the course.
