BECOME A FIVE WISDOMS TEACHER
As a Five Wisdoms Teacher your sanity, stability, depth of understanding, and length of experience needs to be evident. You should have a deep personal understanding of the Five Wisdom Energies and Natural Brilliance books and the Five Wisdoms Training workbooks. By doing so, you will become adept at embodying that wisdom and putting it in your own words. You will need to articulate the Five Wisdoms body of teachings, the basic principles of Buddhism, present each energy both cognitively and experientially, give meditation instruction, present the postures in an accurate way (when applicable), create experiential learning exercises, connect with the students, and process emotional energy that arises in the group. A primary role of the teacher is to pay close attention to participants' experience.
PREREQUISITES AND ONGOING REQUIREMENTS
TWO LEVELS OF AUTHORIZATION
1. Presenting the Five Wisdoms
The Five Wisdoms Professional Certificate is sufficient for you to present the Five Wisdoms and facilitate exercises through demonstrated confidence to be a spokesperson for the Five Wisdoms. Coaching will help you to do it more skillfully.
2. Teaching with the Five Wisdoms Postures
Five Wisdoms posture practice authenticates the teachings so let them speak for themselves. At the same time, they are very provocative as they enter someone into a deep psycho-spiritual journey. You will be given a Five Wisdoms Teachers Manual.
Please request to become a Five Wisdoms teacher and an application form will be sent to you.
