We've worked hard to make the C.MI™ Program one of the best of its kind, anywhere in the world. Students are able to move through their studies at their own personal pace, but know that anytime they have questions or need guidance, we're here to help. C.MI. has its own private online campus area on the UHT University Campus System. There, we meet to share ideas, practice challeneges, and discoveries in an online open exchange with other students from all around the world. It is a safe, private online environment that allows the student to really discover (or re-discover) their practice from the ground-up. I encourage you to register today. I greatly look forward to working with you in the course!

"The C.MI course was extremely valuable to my personal meditation practice and my work as a meditation teacher. I highly recommend this course to anyone with a desire to deepen their personal practice and to support others in doing the same. Stephen Rinaldi is a compassionate and highly gifted teacher!"

"The C.MI course through University of Holistic Theology has given me the tools not only to guide others in Vipassana mindfulness meditation but to give myself the gift of relieving the sufferings this life is full of. Through this course I learned that no attempt at meditation is a failure and that many obstacles will arise as I practice and I learned the tools to deal with the obstacles and deepen my meditation. This course was mindfully laid out so that the learning is simple and easy to understand and retain. I am truly grateful for Stephen Rinaldi and the University of Holistic Theology for the teachings of this course. My life is changed for the better because of this and now I can bring what I learned to others."

Words cannot describe the transformational journey I've experienced from taking the C.MI course. I'm so grateful I answered the call. I checked many other resources on line, but I kept coming back to C.MI. I now know why! As an Adult Educator, it was great to see this course is designed with all the important principles of how adults learn. At the age of 61 I found it a gentle process as I moved through the course curriculum, I never felt alone, the community and resources were always there for me when I needed them. I've gained a trunk full of tools to support my future life-time practice. I'm very excited to begin facilitating meditation classes on my wellness retreats! Thanks so much to Stephen Rinaldi, D.MT. for your part in my journey, you changed my life! "I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand". ~Confucius

Thank you, Stephen Rinaldi, for your insight and guidance."

"I had previously taught meditation and I still found this course work to be exceptional. I learned a great deal from participating in the coursework. I feel I am a much better informed teacher now. Because of the course my personal meditation practice is now more disciplined and regular. This helps my teaching practice a great deal. I am very grateful to Stephen and staff for putting together such a well rounded curriculum."

I am so thankful for Stephen Rinaldi and the C.MI. program at UHT. I graduated the C.MI. program a few years ago and not only did it help improve my own meditation practice, it also helped me to become a good Meditation Instructor. I started teaching Mindfulness meditation to students shortly after graduating. It’s a great addition to the other styles of meditation I have been using for 9 years. I am also a wellness coach and stress management expert and recommend Mindfulness meditation and the C.MI. program to all my clients. If you sign up for this program, you will love it.

Candace F., C.MI -
"This course has helped me grow tremendously in my knowledge of mindfulness meditation and in my personal life! The recommended reading materials were easy to read yet full of useful information for personal and teaching use. The forums were great! They let you bounce ideas or issues off of other students. It gave you a sense of being in a brick and mortar classroom. Of course, the instructor was always available for the tough questions! Overall, this is a great start to getting a practice and/or business going! A+"
