Our London Mindfulness Teacher Training Level 1 course aims to support participants to begin developing a safe and effective mindfulness teaching practice.
This course provides participants with opportunities to lead guided practices and enquiry with fellow participants in a safe environment. Feedback is from self, fellow participants and tutors takes place over two weekends spread out over a three-month period and aims to support participants to begin developing a safe and effective mindfulness teaching practice.
The course emphasises the requirement for participants to be able to embody mindfulness and compassion while teaching mindfulness training courses. The key skill is learning to stay fully present as you lead guided practices and enquiry. This skill depends entirely upon a sustained and regular personal mindfulness practice.
If you have engaged in mindfulness training yourself and feel you have benefited, then what a wonderful opportunity to help share the benefits of mindfulness practice with others so they benefit too.
As part of your mindfulness training, you may have noticed a personal transformation in terms of managing your own stress levels and increased wellbeing. By training to teach the 8-week Mindfulness Based Living Course, we can help others to relieve their stress, manage pain and chronic illness, achieve their full potential and really flourish in their lives.
By going through the teacher training and sharing the benefits of mindfulness with others our own practice and understanding of mindfulness grows. In turn our practice deepens, and we reap the benefit too.
In this video, Heather explains why we should train to teach mindfulness and explains the full Mindfulness Association Teacher Training Pathway.
