Zoom Mediation

      Set up and Practice

Knowing how to set up your Zoom room is one thing and actually conducting your first mediation is another. You don't have to ask friends and family to join you for a practice run, nor are you forced to experiment on actual clients. Here you can register for one of the upcoming Zoom session where you will be assigned as a host to practice and explore all of the tools available to conduct a Zoom mediation.

Over a two hour Zoom session you will learn how to set up your Zoom mediation room and practice as a host without having to pay for a Zoom Professional subscription. The only thing you need is a computer with dedicated internet connection and a quite and unintrrupted space.
