The Middle Way Meditation Coach Training Program

Peace is the thing that all people want.  Every society and community seeks for peace.  The world peace organization has been founded and established the world peace award.  It has selected the most appropriate organization and person to receive this award for over one hundred years.  In the human history many negotiations for peace had been held again and again but wars and exploitations still appear many times.

Does the world peace really take place?
Who can answer this question?

Today, there are many things happened in our daily life.  All people want to be happy but many things in life may trouble you.  The today wealth, knowledge, ability, good health can not confirm that they still belong to you tomorrow.  The only way to find the true and lasting happiness is the simple way that everyone can do and is independent to your age, gender, nationality, religion, belief and race – it is meditation.  That is to know how to develop your mind.

The World Inner Peace Foundation is an organization established after the success of the Middle Way Meditation Retreat.  This project began in 2006 and people from over 70 countries participated in this project.  The Travel & Leisure magazine, the No. 1 American Travelling magazine, has ranked the meditation place in this program to be one of top10 best meditation places in the world.  We, the World Inner Peace Foundation, would like to disseminate the meditation worldwide by opening the interested people from around the world to participate in this program.

The true peace comes from the residents in those societies finding the true inner peace.  It is not too difficult to find this deep and lasting happiness if you really know where the real peace is and how to make it happens.

The Middle Way Meditation is the meditation to attain the inner Dhamma which is within every human’s body by focusing one’s mind at the center of body.

The Lord Buddha had said in the Dhammacakkappavattanasutta that “These two extremes, bhikkhus, should not be followed by one who has gone forth: sensual indulgence, which is low, coarse, vulgar, ignoble, and unprofitable; and self-torture, which is painful, ignoble, and unprofitable.”
“Bhikkhus, by avoiding these two extremes, the Tathagata has realized the Middle Way, which gives vision and understanding, which leads to calm, penetration, enlightenment, to Nirvana.”
“And what, bhikkhus, is the Middle Way realized by the Tathagata, which gives vision and understanding, which leads to calm, penetration, enlightenment, to Nirvana?”
“It is just this Noble Eightfold Path, namely: Right View, Right Intention, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right Concentration.”

The Objectives of this program
1.    For the interested people to participate in the long-term meditation.
