A Proven Technique

To get a better understanding of how meditating with the 1 Giant Mind Being technique affects stress levels, we gathered data from over 6,000 of our app users.

To achieve this, we integrated a measurement tool called the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) survey into our app. The PSS is a widely used psychological instrument for measuring the perception of stress. It measures the degree to which situations in one’s life are considered stressful.

The PSS was designed to assess how unpredictable, uncontrollable, and overloaded respondents find their lives to be. The users of our app were asked to take the survey before and after they completed the 12 Step Learn Meditation course.

The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the 1 Giant Mind technique’s ability to increase stress resilience, emotional stability, and one’s ability to cope with life’s challenges and demands.

Our Program

The 1 Giant Mind Meditation Teacher Training is unlike anything in the world.

We train you to teach an effective meditation technique rooted in tradition and formatted for a modern audience.

Our program starts online and continues as you begin to teach the 3-Day Learn Meditation Course in-person. It’s broken down in two phases over the course of a year:

Phase One - Become a Certified Teacher

16 unit online certification program and live webinar classes with Jonni Pollard. 5-7 hrs a week commitment for 12 weeks.

We like to say the real training begins once you are certified.
