*Individuals are responsible for their own meals, lodging, transportation to/from the in-person training.


Each Teacher Training is two months long and includes the following:

*20-hours of study per month (10 hours online with Amy)

*One 15-hour in-person weekend intensive

*The focus of each training is to equip individuals with both the knowledge needed to teach and the skillful means of crafting transformative and inspiring workshops/trainings

*Individuals graduate with a 55-hour certificate of completion formally authorizing them to teach in-person trainings on behalf of the Institute ~ inspiring lives, easing suffering, and supplementing their income along the way.

*Graduates are mentored as they set up trainings for the first 3 months post-graduation. The Institute helps promote all trainings by graduates who keep 90% of the proceeds of trainings they lead. (10% percent of earnings post travel/set up expenses go to the Institute). Graduates are affiliated with the Institute, can use Institute logos and info, and are responsible for skillfully teaching the information learned in the trainings.

Tuition for each training is $2,000 USD. The following discounts apply:

*Individuals who sign up for both Teacher Trainings pay $3,700

*Members of the Institute, INELDA, or the NHFA receive a 25% discount

*Individuals who pay in full by October 30, receive 10% off of their total tuition

(So, if a member of one of the above organizations registered to take one training and paid by October 30, the cost would be $1350. For both trainings paid by October 30 – the cost would be $2497).

*In order to make these trainings more affordable across the economic spectrum, individuals can set up interest-free payment plans.
