Online Learning System
In between the two in-person retreats our Certified Professional Instructor candidates participate in an intensive 6-month online training program. Curriculum will require 3-4 hours each week involved in the following varied activities:  

  • Online Content: Instructional and self-development videos, readings, and reflections
  • Monthly Group Classes: Experiential learning, lectures, self-development training and discussion through live synchronous whole-cohort classes (Zoom).
  • Training Teams: Participants are assigned to small Training Team groups led by a BPW Coach. Teams meet monthly on Zoom to stay connected, discuss the application of their learning, engage in teaching/presenting practice and receive feedback.
  • Weekly Mindfulness Classes: Led by BPW’s Executive Director, these optional classes provide additional self-care practice and energy principles for our CPI community.
  • Individual Coaching Sessions: Participants meet individually with their BPW Coach on a monthly basis to personalize and integrate their learning experience.
  • Teaching Feedback: Participants share videos of themselves teaching students, parents or teachers and receive feedback on their teaching from their BPW Coach and Training Team.
  • Daily Training/Journaling: Participants are encouraged to maintain a daily personal wellness and meditative journaling practice.
  • Additional Learning Experiences: There will be additional optional opportunities for learning including Affinity Groups, reading groups, practice groups, and regional meet-up groups where possible.
