Welcome to The school of Modern Meditation

Access your potential, your creativity & your community

At SOMM we teach a foundational meditation course in Awareness Insight Meditation, certified with the Meditation Alliance International. Not only does this course teach students how to cultivate a daily meditation practice but it also dives into the psychology, biology and neuroscience of meditation.

The 3-part course is one of the most comprehensive courses in meditation out there today. There is nothing more effective for your practice than having an experienced and qualified techer's knowledge and then continued support. Students also become part of the AIM community and have access to support for multiple, certified AIM Facilitators.

We recommend all our students start with this course, whether they are experienced or new to meditation. Our SOMM classes are a beautiful supplement to this teaching.
