Branch Training: Teach the Introducing Mindfulness Course 1-day Teacher Training

April 25, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm BST


This workshop provides training in how to teach the Introducing Mindfulness (IM) course and associated practices.

As an addition to the MBCT family of courses, the Introducing Mindfulness course offers a brief taste of mindfulness practice and theory in a format intended to be accessible to anyone new to mindfulness. It can be offered as a formal programme of 3 one-hour sessions, or as drop-ins, taster and introductory sessions.

IMPORTANT: You do not need to complete this workshop if you are currently on the OMF 12-month cohort training route.

The OMF provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend 100% of the training event, including break out rooms, with their camera on.

What will I do on this course?
We will explore the key intentions, structure and outline of the IM course. There will be discussions about where the IM course sits within the scope of broader mindfulness teaching – the similarities, differences, and any special considerations needed when offering shorter sessions to work colleagues, or other communities within which you intend to offer the course.
