Meditation Facilitator Training - Level 1

Learn how to guide MINDFULNESS MEDITATION in a simple and science-based way. Guided meditation is a great tool to help people access a more clear and more calm mindset.

The program is for people who already meditate and have a regular meditation practice. If you now want to start guiding others around you, this training is for you.

This is super beneficial for those who work as Coaches, Therapists, or Team Leaders. I have taught meditation and breathing practices in coaching, therapeutic and corporate contexts. I would love to share my experience and empower you to help others in even better ways.


You will learn to guide MINDFULNESS OR SECULAR meditation. The scientific focus makes the practice more inclusive. Regardless of belief or culture.


The classes include basic theory, meditation practice, class feedback, Q&A. The program will also include resources to read or watch before, during, and after the program. Each Module consists of a 2-hour segment.

Module 1: Fundamentals of Guiding Mindfulness Meditation.

We’ll review some of the science-based benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation. We will learn how to explain the breath awareness meditation process. Also, learn the core principles when guiding others.

Module 2: Body Awareness Meditation.

We'll work with a relaxing meditation known as the Body Scan. We will learn its neurological benefits and how to guide it. We will discuss several meditation styles and modalities.

Module 3: Breath Meditation Part 1.

After learning to relax the body, we will go a level deeper and work with the breath. Breath awareness is a great way to calm the mind and help people out of anxiety. Breathing can influence the nervous system and the chemical balance in the body.

Module 4: Awareness & Breath Meditation Part 2

We will go deeper and start exploring the idea of awareness. We will learn to bring awareness to more subtle aspects of the breathing process as a tool to focus the mind.


We will divide de modules between 2 days (Saturday Morning to Sunday afternoon.) This way you will have time to digest the information, practice, and come up with questions. 


Anyone who wants to expand and deepen their relationship with meditation. It doesn't matter if you still consider yourself a beginner. But, it does matter that you consider yourself a regular meditator.

"Río, thank you so much for your guidance on the meditation journey. It definitely was what I needed to continue my path 🙏🏽  I am much more confident now to guide meditation and with a clearer structure.  Thanks a lot!

If you are thinking of taking this course I recommend it, you will gain confidence to guide meditations and you will learn the structure of how to do it. Guiding a meditation is not just about intuition, it takes structure and Rio will give you all the bases to do it."

"Rio is a fantastic teacher and has taught me a great deal in this short course. My goal for doing this course was to become confident enough to lead meditations, or record meditations for my clients. I certainly feel that has been achieved. I know a lot more about the background of meditation, the different types of meditation, how we enter the space and lead the meditations and more. The course content is perfect for beginners or people that have some knowledge but like me were lacking in confidence. I would highly recommend this course as Rio really knows his stuff and I thoroughly enjoyed it."

"I loved the slow pace of the course and training, it felt like we had loads of time to explore and I enjoyed your teaching Rio. The small group was perfect and it was brilliant to connect with new people"

"Wow! Absolutely loved my meditation facilitator training with Rio! I have been meditating for years and wanted to learn how to lead groups. This course is fantastic in helping you learn how to guide others through meditation. The group was really small which meant we had loads of 1:1 time with Rio to enhance our practice. We learned new techniques but were also able to put this into practice by hosting two live meditations for the rest of the group. Rio is a fantastic teacher and really helped me to understand new concepts and strategies. As a result, I now feel confident to lead others in meditation. I highly recommend this course, it is life-changing and has made me so much more confident in my meditation practice. Thank you Rio!"
