This in-depth, seven-week mindfulness training and mentoring program led by world-class meditation trainers Jack Kornfield, Ph.D., and Tara Brach, Ph.D., will help you learn valuable skills to develop a regular meditation practice. The course can help you cultivate clarity, compassion, and well-being.

“The reason that Jack and I were inspired to form the Awareness Training Institute and create The Power of Awareness is because we’ve witnessed how transformative awareness practices are for the thousands of people that we’ve worked with—people facing the greatest losses, caught in the grip of anxiety, or struggling with depression or addiction. We’ve seen these people use this kind of training to find their way back to an inner place of balance, peace, and freedom.”—Tara Brach
