It’s Meditation For Everyone (MFE) – created for those of us who want to improve our own focus, self-awareness, self-confidence, inspire creativity, and become strong, calm, positive leaders in any field.
Andy designed this program so that individuals can learn and really understand meditation, and then share these valuable ‘skills trainings’ with others. Andy offers a unique approach to practicing and teaching meditation – molded around his own teaching experience, his extensive education with the Chopra Center, The Center For Mindfulness, and Fluid Yoga trainings; he created this program to be relevant and support everyone looking for skills that nurture and awaken you to your best life.“As a meditating mother of four who understood first hand the benefits of parenting with presence, I wanted to share my mindfulness practice with others. I’d begun teaching basics in neighborhood school classrooms, but wasn’t sure if I was doing it right, or if it was okay to be doing it at all. After training with Andy, not only was I certified to instruct the Meditation For Everyone syllabus, but I was also readied to fine tune my own programming and clearly map out a purposeful plan for my peace education practice. Andy is the real deal. He offers an empowering certification for meditation teachers. With extensive experience in public schools, he pairs practical instruction on working with students and faculty with the loftier topics of mindfulness.” – Vanessa Gobes, Certified MFE Instructor

The Boston Buddha – Meditation For Everyone, certification is our own. Our program is established in Andy Kelley’s years of continued success with reaching and helping people become happier in their lives. While this certification is based on knowing a set of meditation standards, it’s our mission is to help you become qualified to teach meditation to EVERYONE. Our focus is very practical and straightforward – we give you the foundation in the first two weekends, focusing on the mythology, Sanskrit, Hindu, Buddhism, the science, and specific techniques. The last two weekends we work on the practical application of meditation and mindfulness – bringing our own experience into the teachings – connecting more deeply with ourselves – so we can connect more deeply with others and reach more people in our community.
“For years, I’ve been telling my wife that we have plenty of amazing quality yoga teachers – what this world needs now more than ever is quality meditation teachers. We think we’ve created something special here that seems to connect with a wider audience that might not otherwise be inclined to meditate.” – Andy Kelley
