Middleway Method Practitioner Apprenticeships

Middleway training is a one-on-one apprenticeship. Teacher and student work together at the student’s pace, according to the student’s needs and strengths.

Fellow students and practitioners support each other, practice together, and share in a community of open learning.

Training includes:

  • Personal wellness: exercise, diet, and lifestyle
  • Meditation: body-centered, grounded and awake
  • Touch sensitivity: neuromuscular repatterning and muscle activation
  • Movement: self-relaxation and subtle awareness
  • Anatomy of Proprioception: the foundation of our sense of being
  • Facilitating others: somatic education

Meditation Apprenticeships

There are three ways to study meditation with us. The first is to study the body-centered, non-religious form which is the basis of Middleway practice in general. The second is to study Buddhism in a non-religious Western format through mindfulness and philosophy. The third method is to study and practice in a more traditional Tibetan Buddhist format in the Dzogchen and Vajrayana traditions.

Free non-religious Buddhist resources are available through the Free Buddhism Project.

We host body-centered Relaxing Meditation retreats at Ratna Ling Retreat Center in Sonoma County, California.

Traditional Tibetan Buddhist training is available at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California.
