***NEW:  Those who attend the 2-week OM Meditation retreat in the Himalayas of India in September of 2014 will receive a certificate for 78 hours of OM Meditation Studies. These count towards 78 hours of credits towards the Padma Meditation Teacher Training Program.

A NEW option just introduced is that you can complete the Practicum components, the “End Struggles” plus the “How to Teach” components at the OM Meditation Retreat and then finish the remaining requirements online and by Skype afterwards.

Instead of costing $750 for attending these two final workshops for certification, the cost of online completion will be just $300. This is a saving of $450.

 Normally, in order to complete the teacher training level 1, you would have to also complete 30 more hours of Padma workshops including the 2-day “End Struggles” workshop (12 hours), plus the 3-day “How to Teach” workshop (18 hours).

In either of these cases, additionally you will need to compete the following  requirements:
