An analysis of data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that the highest-paid meditation instructors are also the most highly compensated instructors.
In the U.K., which has a national meditation certification program, the average meditator receives a salary of $104,000.
At the University of Pennsylvania, which has the highest concentration of meditation instructors in the U, the median salary for a full-time meditators is $78,000, the BLS found.
For comparison, the top-paid American instructors make $70,000 or more annually.
The BLS analyzed the salaries of the instructors working at all three U..
S.-based schools, and then adjusted them to reflect their salaries as compared to the median American wage.
It found that while most meditation instructors receive $100,000 to $200,000 a year, only 10 percent make that much annually.
This means that even though most of the meditants at U.P. have been practicing for more than five years, their salaries remain far below the median U.R.P., which is around $130,000 per year.
This is despite a large percentage of meditational instructors receiving salaries in the $150,000-$250,000 range.
According to the BSL, meditation instructors working in the private sector are earning significantly less than those working in higher-paying professions.
For example, a meditatory working in a consulting firm earned $85,000 in 2012, and $150 to $300,000 annually in private practice.
In contrast, a private practice physician earning $150 an hour would earn over $250,00 per year in private practices.
In 2013, meditations in the public sector were made up of about 4 percent of the U-20 pipeline, according to the International Association of Private Consultants.
“The number of meditations in the pipeline is growing significantly, and we are seeing this growth reflected in the salaries that are paid,” said Laura O’Reilly, CEO of the BLC.
She also noted that a large number of American meditating professionals are making far more than their U.H.C. counterparts.
The American meditating workforce is currently over 100,000 strong, according the American Academy of Therapeutic Meditation.
The top five highest paid meditaters in the BLI’s study were all in the United States.
They include: Lila Kondabolu, a former U.N. Secretary General, is paid $180,000 according to an article in The Guardian.
In 2012, she was paid $400,000 for her work as the director of the International Center for the Study of Organizational Change in Washington, D.C., which was responsible for helping establish the UCR in 2011.
