"The Dragonfly Meditation Instructor Training was the perfect next step in my development as an educator. The course provides background on a wide variety of perspectives on meditation, from the science of mindfulness to the history of Buddhist practice. It also introduces several different types of meditation—including breath awareness, mindful eating, loving-kindness, etc.—which students are encouraged to lead in a warm+welcoming environment. I always looked forward to the sessions; the class had great discussions, and I was challenged to expand both my own mindfulness practice and my capacity to share it with others. Overall, the training was highly enjoyable and rewarding, and it has greatly enhanced my confidence and effectiveness in leading classroom meditations." Greg G
