For over a decade now, WPI has been providing the platform for individuals to turn their passion for meditation into a profession by becoming certified Mindfulness and Meditation Trainers through an intensive training program. We regard our Mindfulness and Meditation Trainers as ‘Peace Architects’ as we believe they are the designers of the 'building plans for world peace, constructed on the firm foundation of inner peace.

Since 2012, we have certified over 170 Peace Architects from 70 different countries who have contributed immensely toward the well-being of their communities and world peace.

The On-site Training

(Beginner Course for Certified Mindfulness & Meditation Trainer or BCMMT)

Our on-site training is a 3-week (or 323 hours) program for beginners at a beautiful sanctuary in Thailand. All settings, from the place to teachings, are professionally designed to develop high quality meditation trainers who attain insight from meditation and mindfulness as well as teaching and mentoring skills to guide effectively. After being our trainers for one year, they will get full funding for the re-training program if they complete the post-training requirement to enhance meditation experiences, refresh the knowledge, and deepen understanding. This is the unique training methodology you hardly find elsewhere.
