Teacher Training Online: Level 1
September 1, 2022 - September 20, 2022
It seems that the world needs skilful teachers now more than ever. Our intention is to create a rich, safe learning environment that will support you to begin your journey into Mindfulness teaching.
This intensive, entry-level, mindfulness-based teacher training is considered to be the highest standard of training available. It has been developed, refined and delivered since 2002 and taught by some of the most experienced mindfulness-based teachers in Europe. Approximately 50% of all UK mindfulness-based teachers have been trained by the Bangor University Centre for Mindfulness, Research and Practice and teachers from all over the world choose to attend this programme, which is now delivered in collaboration with The Mindfulness Network.
We have developed this Teacher Training Online 1 (TTO1) as online equivalent of the Teacher Training Retreat 1 (TTR1), offering all that the residential level 1 training offers in an accessible online format, as detailed below;
This programme is designed to immerse participants in the principles and practice of mindfulness-based teaching. It starts from the premise that as teachers we need to embody mindfulness-based practice in our own lives before we can attempt to teach it to others. The programme facilitates an opportunity for sustained inner work through practice and learning alongside peers. It is designed to be a collaborative and participatory learning experience.
The training primarily focuses on the teaching process and curriculum of the group-based, eight-week Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) programmes. The underpinning experience and understanding is also valuable for those who wish to integrate mindfulness into individual therapeutic work or teach mindfulness in a different form.
On TTO1, you will learn to teach the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) curriculum. The foundational skills, approach and practices that you learn are common to both MBSR and MBCT.
TTO1 is experienced in a retreat environment to develop and support the deepening of your personal mindfulness practice. During the week there will be regular periods of silence and a silent led practice day. The intention is to create a group process that feels safe and trustworthy; an open, spacious learning environment that encourages spontaneity and creativity; and structured learning.
Pre-requisites for attending:
-Completion of a group-based, eight-week MBCT/MBSR course or, an eight-week distance learning MBSR programme with us in association with Bangor University
-Commitment to an ongoing daily personal mindfulness-based practice, based on MBSR/MBCT practices
