You likely can think back to the moment that meditation entered your life.
Perhaps it was during a rough time on your path and a YouTube video popped up on your feed. Or maybe a parent introduced it to you at an early age. Or you’re still in the early phases of exploring and curious about this magical system that creates radical transformation in people's lives.
Whatever the journey, you have a story to tell...
And a desire to share the practice with others.
You have a vision of sitting with a group of people while leading meditations and giving them an incredible life-changing experience and yet:
- The thought of having all eyes on you and unresponsive looks on people’s faces terrifies you to no end.
- The whole charging money and finding a space to host your meditations gives you way too much “pang” in the stomach.
- Outlining and planning your class takes longer than the actual class itself.
THIS STOPS NOW.
Your desire to teach and lead is important. And the more you step up to the plate, the more easily + naturally it'll happen.
Meditation Method Teacher Training is your platform to provide you with the tools to shift your personal meditation practice to a place where you can lead others with the same grace and flow as your teachers did for you.
Hi love! I'm Danielle Mercurio.
And if we haven't met yet, I'm a modern cosmic babe who completely shifted her life after one meditation session. Yup, it only took one hit and I was hooked.
Almost ten years ago, my life was scattered, confusing, and pretty much a hot mess. Through a series of mishaps calculated by the Universe, I realized it was time to get myself back on track. While therapy and group coaching were SUPER helpful, I still didn’t feel fully connected.
I heard about meditation but I wasn’t sure if it was for me (the whole monk quiet in a cave thing didn’t seem to suit my Leo fire). Still, the nagging voice inside of me told me to go to the Google and before I could say ‘namaste’ I was signed up for my first intro class.
I’ll never forget my teacher Alex and the way he seamlessly explained mindfulness and guided us into a meditative state, and for the first time EVER, I felt my entire mind, body and soul come together as one. It was like everything in the world aligned in that one breath and I was on a high that no drug could ever serve me.
From that moment on, I was hooked.
I took every course I could on the Buddhist meditation path and spent hours at the bookstore reading up on mindfulness and the present moment. I discovered trance + astral journeys, accessed new ways to channel, became attuned in Reiki, and even received my 200 hour Kundalini Yoga + meditation training.
Eventually, I moved on to share meditation with others, hosting workshops in New York City and around the country. Being able to hold space and give other humans an experience is my greatest joy. And I have a feeling you’re just like me and could do this too.
You feel the call to share this practice with others, yet where do you start? And how do you do it?
From choosing which meditations you should offer, what tone of voice to use, figuring out the right music and how to record, wondering where to promote it, booking venues, making sure you get paid, and then, oh yea, finding people to come to class! Eek! There can be a whole lotta headache crowding out the heart of your intention to teach.
Your soul doesn't want you scrambling to try to make this work or just wing it - trust me, I've been there. So to move forward with teaching this heart-centered practice, you’ve got to nurture your own self and give yourself permission to understand the grounding tools and elevating techniques to instruct others.
I know the feeling of having a spiritual practice that lights you up and your readiness to want to share that outward. We are in a time where we need teachers like YOU more than ever, you just need to refine your skills and boost your confidence to get noticed as a teacher.
Meditation Method TT is more than just a basic 101 class or surface level meditation training - it's a detailed, deep dive into the world of self-care, mindfulness, and meditation so you can have access to the best resources and then teach it yourself.
I want you and your teachings to be masterful and shining with respect, trust, and validity that what you have to offer is transformational, authentic, and true.
“Before starting Meditation Method Training, I didn’t realize just how EXPANSIVE meditation really is and that there is no “perfect” way to meditate. Through this training, I’ve gained so much more confidence and trust in myself through my own mindful practices and as a teacher!” -Becca Lynn

From one spiritual friend to another, I know how much this path lights you up. And I can totally relate to the ways you geek out over self-help, the new age, and mindfulness. Instead of just telling people about it, how great would it be to SHOW them?
If you can see it in your mind, then I trust it can be your reality.
It's time do more than just see other teachers and think “I could do that” and then go back to your everyday life.
It's time to blend your inward sacred practice to the outer world.
Meditation Method Teacher Training is an investment in the support, accountability, and the skillset that will allow you to show up successfully as a teacher with a sense of excitement & readiness.
