This isn't the cost of a course that teaches you how to fish.

This is the cost of a course that teaches you how to teach others to fish for $$$ - quite lucrative.

They're probably setting you up with some branding swag that identifies you as a life coach in this area.

That's what it is.  I found out about this because I got a Meetup notification that announced a  "Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program 2019" in my area.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kornfield  and  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tara_Brach are prominent Buddhist authors and teachers who between them have written a ton of books.  Not sure how they are involved with Greater Good Science Center, Sounds True and Awarenesss Training Institute.    It would be the equivalent of some well-known, legitimate Christian writer and teacher, like C.S. Lewis, sponsoring a program to certify "Prayer teachers".   At least that's how I look at it.

Maybe this thread should be moved somewhere else.  It's starting to get into social commentary territory, or a rant.

(admin note - I did copy & cutty pastey on the image memes thread. So the leading post here is a dupe of the one in the image memes thread. Just an experiment.)

The Gorn:
Personally, I don't think this course is meta enough.  :P

There should be courses on creating courses for people who wish to become trainers or coaches. In other words, who trains the expert coaches?

Another fine product of DoucheCo - liquidators of IRAs, pensions and 401Ks for today's income-desperate retirees.

There's infinite room for expansion of this concept. Lots of money to be siphoned offmade.
