Here at Zama we offer world class Meditation Teacher Training. Our teachers have years of experience, practice and training under their belt and are well equipped to offer you the guidance needed to share and undertake the ancient practice of meditation. Our teacher training and short courses cover a range of meditation techniques and styles to ensure there is something to resonate with every individual.
Meditation is the most rewarding and life changing practice. For many who study and practice the art of meditation it becomes a daily practice that nurtures them throughout their whole lives. Meditation offers benefits of mind shaped on the values of compassion, mindfulness and contentment. It cultivates unshakable inner peace.

People who suffer with stress, anxiety, pain, depression and ill health find powerful relief through meditation.  The inflammatory response is reduced, the immune response is heightened, and mindfulness meditation is closely on par with antidepressants for preventing major relapse of depression.

Reputable studies also report major epigenetic changes in just 8 hours of meditation per day. This has huge public health implications for us all and the next generation.  It also reduces the aging stress on the body, by lengthening the telomeres – the ends of chromosomes. This begins to reverse the aging process on a cellular level.

Whether you do this course for yourself or to teach others, it is a highly valuable practice to live by and share with others. Meditation is the innovative lifestyle medicine of the 21st century.

"Thank you for the beautiful mediation course. You provided me with the information, motivation and the tools I needed to engrave mediation into my life. I don’t come from a medical background but found the integration from both the traditional methods with the modern day science finding very helpful to make it so very relevant for today. Beautiful teachers in a beautiful surrounding, I would highly recommend it to everyone." - Joyce

"I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the meditation module. It was amazing to share time and space with teachers who are so passionate and knowledgeable about their fields. I really enjoyed the course material - delving into the sutras a little deeper, and the western science side of mindfulness meditation. An amazing course - I will be back for more!" - Jaime

"I have enjoyed my learning through [this course] immensely. The amount of information and knowledge that all teachers have shared has been greatly appreciated. The required readings, class discussions and resources referred to have opened my mind to soooo much knowledge. Have loved it and am sure will continue to do so in the future. Separate to that, the support provided has been excellent. Thank YOU!" - Yolanda
