This 10-month online program (March-December 2021) provides a cohesive mindfulness practice and study course for dedicated students who wish to deepen their personal mindfulness practice in a supportive community.
Students will have prioritized access to MARC classes and events, engage in monthly supervision sessions, receive mentorship, and connect in peer support groups. Further personal growth will be enabled by several outside requirements.
All MARC classes are currently held online either live online or prerecorded online.
Online monthly group meetings will be held monthly, March-December, 2021 (dates to be determined)
