Why get certified?

Deeper learning. Teacher training and certification are a powerful gateway to reaching a deeper level of learning and mastery. By learning to teach and share, you strengthen your own understanding and reinforce your faith and commitment to these life-changing practices.

Serving others. There is great fulfillment in supporting and guiding the healing, wellness and growth of others. As a teacher, you are supporting your own practice, contributing to the wellness and growth of other individuals, and playing a role in bringing a broader consciousness of mindfulness to our community and world.

Creating community. As a member of the certification cohort, you’ll be a part of a broader community of students and teachers. You’ll be supported in deepening your practice, and you’ll support others in their growth. And you will play a part in creating a lasting community of wellness for yourself and others.

Completing the Mindfulness Certification program with Mastermind was one of the best decisions in my life. We finished the program just as the pandemic shut down most of public life, and the practices we learned helped me not only keep my own peace but inspired me to go forth to share mindfulness with others. Since finishing, I’ve worked with several groups and led meditation for people around the world.

Taking this course was truly one of the best choices I have ever made in my life. Thank you for the treasure trove of skills, tools, and ideas regarding how to deepen my own practice and how to offer meditations to my students and fellow teachers at work. Please know how profoundly you have impacted my life, and how by extension, you have impacted the life of my family.

English Teacher, Episcopal School of Dallas
I never would have believed I could have gotten so much out of a virtual course. What I am most proud of, is the joy I have found in mindfulness.  Being mindful has made the biggest difference in my well-being, and in “just being”.  It is as if I have found another sensory mode that is deeper, wider, and more evolved. I don’t worry; I either accept things as they are, or I do something about it.

I am truly grateful for the Mastermind Mindfulness Certification Program. As I reflect on our very first session together, I remember how good it felt to be surrounded by like-minded individuals – the energy was palpable! The strengths of the program included the teaching staff, the commitment to personal practice, and the hands-on learning of facilitation skills. Because of this training, I have discovered within myself a newfound optimism, excitement, and a spark!

Adrianne Bagley, M.D.

Retired Pediatrician & Mindfulness Facilitator
Learning to meditate has been a turning point in my life that reawakened my brain and my heart. After teaching English and writing classes for twenty-two years in higher education, I am humbled to realize I am now gathering the tools to help my friends, neighbors, and colleagues cope with and come to understand life as it is presenting itself to us in this moment. I recommend that those with the desire to help themselves and others in this world consider the training Mastermind offers.

Lisa Coleman, PhD

Professor Emeritus, Southeastern Oklahoma State University
I want to express my sincere gratitude for this program. From Day One I enjoyed every moment and really looked forward to weekends of learning and fun. This program has really helped me in so many ways, being dedicated to my practice as well as blessing others who do not know about mindfulness.

Jertonya Feemster

Regional Vice President, Capital One
I was nervous to sign up for the certification program, but I decided to go for it. Since day one of our training, I knew I made the right choice. I truly believe this is because of the space that was created by Dorsey and Marty to help us grow. This training gave me the tools I needed to connect with myself better than ever have before and to understand how to share my teachings with others. I am forever grateful for this practice and look forward to sharing mindfulness with my community.
