Your Teacher: Todd Moroz

Todd is passionate about guiding people on their path to health and wellness through meditation practices to help release physical and mental stress while embracing a holistically spiritual path. 

After spending several years practicing meditation as a means to balance his own life and manage personal traumas which plagued him throughout his life, he sought to learn more as a means to share this gift with others. This led him to recently completing his Meditation Teacher Training Course with Holistic Counseling Skills. Todd is currently embracing this gift and sharing with many others by initiating meditation clubs at work and being a leader in emotional intelligence. In addition, he is also a huge advocate of shedding the stigma on men’s mental and emotional health and is leading a Men’s Meditation and Wellness Club, The ShaMen Tribe.  To further encourage and support mental health and overall personal wellness, he is also embarking on a train-the-trainer path by embracing his meditation studies and teaching others these gifts so they may further the effort in helping themselves while helping others.

What students say

There is NO other course that you can do that has the ability to CHANGE YOUR CAREER, INSTANTLY!!! There is simply NOTHING else you could possibly need to start your own holistic wellbeing practice... with all that is given at the completion of Certificate in Meditation and Holistic Counselling!"
- Annie
This course was such a blessing. I took it because I wanted to learn how to become a meditation teacher but what I got was so much more. I learned about what makes me happy and what causes me stress, and ways to work through that stress. I learned techniques I can use to better my own meditation practice, as well as to run a class. This course is as intense or as laid back as you want it to be. You get to decide what you want to put into it. It is self taught. Towards the end of the course, you will examine the market that you are in and come up with a game plan on what you will do once the course is over. It allows you to think about your target audience and potential venues. It gives you so much information that you can put into your toolkit to use later when you are practicing. Highly recommend!
