Receiving Supervision with the Mindfulness Association

It is a requirement of the Good Practice Guidelines for the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher training Organisations/BAMBA that mindfulness teachers should receive “regular supervision with an experienced mindfulness-based teacher”. To help teachers trained through the Mindfulness Association fulfil this requirement, we have a pool of approved mindfulness supervisors within the Mindfulness Association, which you can view below.

  • Mindfulness Supervisors are required to meet and adhere to the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches Good Practice Guidelines for Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses (October 2019) and be listed as a teacher on the BAMBA Teachers Listing.
  • Mindfulness Supervisors also need to meet and adhere to the following aspects of the BAMBA Good Practice Guidelines for Trainers of Mindfulness-Based Teachers (Oct 2013):

The Good Practice Guidelines for Supervisors of Mindfulness Based Teacher can be found here.

Supervision Guidelines for Mindfulness Teachers

  • When you first start teaching the MBLC – you will need to do 2 MBLC Courses
  • For each MBLC Course you will need to have 3 hours of supervision for EACH course.
  • Supervision costs £30 for half an hour and £50 for one hour.
  • You can also find a group for supervision. Typically this is 3 people – and costs £120 each for the 6 sessions of supervision. This can be agreed with your supervisor.
  • Throughout your first 2 courses you will record one hour of one of your sessions and send this to the supervisor for feedback. There is an additional charge for this at £60 to review and provide written feedback.  You might like to discuss the feedback in one of your supervision sessions or as an additional session.

Everything you need to know about Supervision requirements can be found here on the BAMBA website.

Supervision Courses

Become a Mindfulness Supervisor

Our supervision courses give you the opportunity to develop the skills and know-how needed in the specific context of mindfulness supervision. It includes inquiry skills, additional skills in facilitation to unfold experience, considerations when working one-to-one, navigating the various roles and functions you will take on as a mindfulness supervisor, setting up a working agreement and giving feedback using the MBI-TAC document.

Within mindfulness supervision, the session itself is imbued with mindfulness. There are short periods of practice interspersed with dialogue and the dialogue itself becomes an exercise in being present. This all happens in the context of embodied groundedness and compassion. For this reason our embodiment of mindfulness in relationship will also be a focus during the course.

Participants completing this training in mindfulness supervision will be free to set themselves up as mindfulness supervisors, providing they meet the Mindfulness Association’s Supervisor Good Practice Guidelines and the UK Network’s Supervisor Good Practice Guidelines.
