Demand is growing for Modules 1-6, and this presents an opportunity for more graduates of the Hridaya Teacher Training Course to share the teachings in Mazunte. Module teachers teach 8-12 hours per week and may be asked to teach any module that they have completed. We prefer a minimum commitment of 3-course cycles.
More experienced teachers take priority, however, there is a sincere intention to train and develop newer teachers, so don’t hesitate to express your interest.
Karma Yoga Support Teachers
For those with a passion for Karma Yoga, there is a new opportunity to support Hridaya’s Karma Yoga Program by directly guiding and supporting the Karma Yogis. This means providing inspiration by leading by example, serving in different areas of the school, stepping in when needed, and offering guidance (when asked) for those just beginning the beautiful, yet tricky path of Karma Yoga. This position also includes mentoring Karma Yogis via one-on-one meetings.
The aspiration is to develop a culture that lives the practice of Karma Yoga and is capable of guiding and inspiring newer aspirants through the spirit of Karma Yoga embodied by more experienced community members.
All teachers enjoy complimentary meals at the Center 6 days per week, the opportunity to participate in the 10-day retreat at the end of each cycle taught, the ability to enroll in Hridaya Modules, and the innumerable ineffable benefits of selfless service.
Please note that all teachers serving in Mazunte are eligible for the above benefits. However, as the spirit of service is paramount, when assistance is required in other areas (for example, supporting the kitchen), teachers may be asked to forgo their participation in the retreat. Also, note that not all Hridaya Modules are offered every month—should your course level not be available, you are welcome to repeat other modules.
If your fire to share the teachings has been kindled, we invite you to apply to join the team. To apply, email the Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
