Teacher Membership

Welcome

If you have trained (and been assessed as ready) to teach one of our courses, and you meet the the UK Good Practice Guidelines (GPGs) for Mindfulness Teachers, then we would love for you to join the Mindfulness Association’s Teacher Membership.  You can unsubscribe at any point by mailing [email protected].

Please note that Teacher Membership is an add-on to Practitioner Membership so you must also have Practitioner Membership in order to be a Teacher Member.

Teacher Membership Benefits

  • Teacher members will have all the benefits of being a practitioner member.
  • Teacher members will be listed on MA website as an approved MBLC teacher and will be able to use an approved MBLC teacher logo on their marketing material.
  • Teachers will be able to promote their courses on the basis that completion of the course exempts their course participants from weekend 1 of the Mindfulness Association’s Level 1 training: Being Present. Graduates of their MBLC courses will be able to begin the Level 1 training: Being Present at weekend 2.
  • Teachers will be able to attend a monthly online CPD session with an MA teacher trainer, on topics to be decided by the teacher membership. This will help to meet ongoing UK Good Practice Guidelines CPD requirements (annual retreat and supervision will also be required).
  • For MBLC courses taking place in the UK, official MA course-completion certificates and ‘What Next?’ leaflets will be sent to teachers to give out to those completing their MBLC courses.
