Certificate Program

Three years ago, CMI developed the Certificate Program in Mindfulness for Educators in affiliation with Barre Center for Buddhist Studies and Antioch University New England. The program granted nine graduate credits, the first of its kind in the United States. The graduates of our program continue this work in public and private schools, community colleges, and universities from Georgia and Missouri as far North as Toronto, Canada.

In 2014, Antioch University New England incorporated the Certificate Program in Mindfulness for Educators Program into its Education Department. It is possible to enroll in the nine-graduate-credit Certificate Program for a full-year of study in an engaged and vibrant on-line cohort. Other options are also available such as incorporating the Certificate Program as part of a Master's in Education degree. Email (sdreyerleon@antioch.edu) or call Dr. Susan Dreyer-Leon (603-283-2315) for more information about both options.

More information can be found on the Antioch website:

I think I forgot how valuable it is to reflect on big questions. I appreciate the opportunity to expand my mind and heart, to grow further as a professional and as a person.

The principals and vice-principals loved your work with them.  It was an inspiring and reflective session.  We got great feedback!
