The Awake in the Wild Teacher Training is an in-depth facilitator training in nature meditation. The training is inspired by Mark Coleman’s nature meditation wilderness retreats that he has been leading internationally for over twenty years. It also draws on his first book Awake in the Wild which lays out the path of nature immersive practice. Mark’s work is inspired by his decades of study and teaching within various Buddhist traditions. Mark is passionate about sharing this cherished work with dedicated practitioners so that they can continue to pass on these profound tools and practices.
This training is for those who care deeply about the Earth, have a strong dharma-meditation practice, and want to share nature-based meditation and practice with others in the outdoors. It is also for people who want to deepen their own nature meditation practice and who wish to immerse in a rich learning community for a year.
Those who enter the training will join a very vibrant and alive teaching community that has grown to 90+ Awake in the Wild trained teachers from around the world. No matter your intention for joining, everyone will discover how cultivating an embodied awareness, sensory attention, and meditative presence outdoors, opens your heart to a deeper love and connection to yourself, each other, and to all life on earth.
