As the founder of Awake in the Wild and co-founder of the Mindfulness Institute, Mark Coleman has led meditation in nature retreats for over two decades. He is also one of One Earth Sangha’s beloved Guiding Teachers.

Mark has taken the wisdom gained through these endeavors to create the Awake in the Wild Teacher Training, an apprenticeship training in guiding contemplative nature practice, inspired by wisdom teachings from the Buddhist tradition and by Mark’s book Awake in the Wild.

A truly unique opportunity, this in-depth Awake in the Wild Teacher Training will:

  • Deepen your own meditation in nature practice
  • Train you to teach mindfulness in nature practices, preparing you to share the unique benefits and skillfully handle the challenges
  • Immerse you in a supportive community of faculty, mentors and colleagues

The next Awake in the Wild Teacher Training program begins this September and runs through July 2022. As a participant, you’ll join with others in four residential retreats with Mark in California, the western states or Mexico; monthly online tutorials; personal nature-based work; and a teaching practicum. We invite you to learn more and apply.
