Remembering Michael Stone: Foundations in Teaching Mindfulness Meditation Online Training
with Michael Stone
This online course, developed and delivered by the late Michael Stone, provides insights into the art and science of mindfulness. It is designed both for people interested in maturing and developing a personal practice and as a foundation to offering mindfulness-based interventions to others. Yogacampus was privileged to collaborate with Michael on the development of this special online course; yet another teaching modality that he seemed to take to with incredible ease. In honour of his memory and to help continue his important work and that of the MST Team who will be managing Michael's trainings, courses and legacy, we proudly present Foundations in Teaching Mindfulness Meditation as one of the first Online Training Courses on offer at Yogacampus.
The 9-week course will provide insights into the art and science of mindfulness. It is designed both for people interested in maturing and developing a personal practice and as a foundation to offering mindfulness-based interventions to others in a class-based setting.

The course is linear and structured in its approach, allowing students to explore their own personal journey on a week-by-week basis, with guided videos from Michael, readings and audio practices to help build a base of both knowledge and experience. Students will have 1-week to complete the requirements for each module before being able to move on to the next module as a way to ensure that the whole group begins and ends the training at the same time.
The course includes tuition on
Each week students will be asked to upload reflective pieces of work and to participate in an online forum that will be moderated by one of Michael’s trusted assistants who continues with his legacy. Please note that, while structured, this is a fluid course designed to foster and promote a reflective self exploration, and therefore will not include graded assignments or direct feedback. Participants will work closely with fellow students to explore and develop their teaching style and experiences allowing for the growth of an organic online Sangha.
This course is for teachers, educators, psychotherapists and anyone with a background in the healing arts who wishes to explore mindfulness meditation in more depth.
Michael Stone designed this course to meet best global standards of practice.

How does the course work?
The course is made of up 9 modules, each to be completed in one week, making the total course 9 weeks long.
Each weekly module consists of the following
In addition to the above, students are asked to commit to a daily 30-minute sitting meditation practice. For students with more time, there is also a guided 20-minute meditation that can be practiced in the evenings. Multiple choice questions or assignments are built into each module and require about 10 minutes per week.
What will you learn?
The late Michael Stone was an activist, family man, and teacher of yoga and Buddhism. His method was to slow down traditional yoga sequences and explore them anatomically and psychologically. He continues to be the voice that inspired a new generation of practitioners integrating social change and contemplative practice, and has authored five books, most recently ‘Awake in the World: Yoga & Buddhist Teachings for Living an Engaged Life’.
“Our lives happen in the present moment. Often we are preoccupied and distracted, and we don’t have the skills for inhabiting the body in a way that’s safe, still, and calm.”
You will receive a Yogacampus certificate of completion on submitting all weekly assignments.
