Meditation Teacher Training Retreat

Learn to teach meditation and mindfulness under the guidance of Melbourne Meditation Centre Director, Matt Young.

In 2024 we’ll be running our Meditation Teacher Training Retreat in mid April.

For regional, interstate and overseas participants, this allows you to complete the in-person component of your training in one week. You’ll also be able to complete much of the other coursework required to graduate, though the required reading may take some extra time.

You will also be able to particpate without completing our Meditation & Mindfulness for Beginners Course ($235) — which is normally a pre-requisite — as the material covered on the Beginners Course will be included on retreat.

Enjoy the usual benefits of being away on retreat; including tasty vegetarian meals, time to rest and relax, the picturesque location and fresh air and the good company of like-minded students.

I had the opportunity to complete the meditation teacher training retreat and I can highly recommend.

Matt and Beth did an amazing job of engaging us as students in a critical analysis of our preconceived ideas of meditation. They both had unique teaching styles that complimented each other. There was an opportunity to explore meditation styles, techniques and to design and create your own meditation for the class.

This course really made me question some ideas I arrived at the retreat with and I left with a much more curious and creative approach to meditation and meditation teaching.

Further to the retreat the coursework exposed me to content that I am continuing to eagerly explore post completing the course.

Matt and Beth created an environment of open, kind and generous discussion that then spilled out of the classes and into our socialisation and recreation time.

If you are considering completing the teacher training retreat I can recommend wholeheartedly!
