Mindfulness Teacher Training Program

Our Teacher Training Program consists of five levels. After you’ve completed your Trainer Module Level 2, you can continue with our Teacher Module Level 3. As a trainer, you master the basics and are now ready to deepen your mindfulness skills and practice to a much deeper level. After this module, you can help yourself and others in a remarkable way, receiving a lot of gratitude from the people you guide.

Mindfulness Teacher Training - Guidance by Master Niels

Teacher Module 3
The teacher module also lasts one year, the same as the trainer module, with the difference that the emphasis is much more on mindfulness and self-realization. In your trainer module you had to invest a lot in how to teach, how to guide and how to present yourself during the MRP courses. In this year, there is more space to spend time on your practice and to realize that, you will go through a 12-month Mindfulness Assessment Program, where you learn to reflect on your mindfulness exercises, how to improve them, and how to monitor your progress. This assessment program will rapidly improve your mindfulness skills and will stimulate the process of enlightenment. Your wisdom will grow, and you will start to see things more clearly and in more detail than before.

Another amazing aspect is that you will participate in the 7-day Advanced MRP Retreat. As you have experienced, our retreats are pivotal moments in our lives. In this retreat, you will deepen the techniques that you’ve learned in your assessment program, improving your mindfulness energy. In your advanced retreat, you also learn how to guide others while having their retreat letting you become a great teacher.

As an MRP Teacher, your teaching skills will expand
In addition to the personal process of enlightenment, you simultaneously learn new teacher skills. You will also learn to teach MRP course 3, the Beginner and Intermediate MRP, which increases your skillset. You will notice that teaching is already easier, but now you will take another big step forward by guiding people during your Advanced MRP retreat.

Upon completing this year, you will be an officially certified MRP Teacher and ready to guide the following items:

  • MRP course 3
    This seven-week course is called The Mindfulness Code and is the third introductory course. In it, you will learn how to teach Extended Mindfulness Techniques (EMT) to beginners.
  • Beginner MRP
    This Mind Retreat Program takes 12 weeks or can be taught in a 3-day retreat to your participants. In this program, practitioners will learn the basic, fundamental, and extended mindfulness techniques. The focus is solely on practicing and applying the three principles of mindfulness with the theory omitted. The Beginner MRP is a perfect start for those who only want to focus on practice and want to continue with the Intermediate MRP.
  • Intermediate MRP 
    The Intermediate MRP is the 7-day retreat that you’ve followed during your Trainer Module. It was an amazing experience, during which you learned effective mindfulness techniques to accumulate the energy of mindfulness rapidly. As an MRP Teacher, you’re now ready to organize the Intermediate MRP for others.

Master Niels, founder of the IMI, teaches you the first 3 basic mindfulness techniques

Professional guidance
Along your Mindfulness Teacher Training you will be supervised by Master Niels. You start your Teacher Module III online and learn through a special designed self-study program. Master Niels will assist you in deepening your theoretical knowledge and mastering the latest and most effective mindfulness techniques.

Information about the contents and practical matters of our Mindfulness Teacher Training

Mindfulness Teacher Training

During your Mindfulness Teacher Training, you will first learn to master different mindfulness techniques and the underlying theories. In addition, you will learn to apply these techniques and transfer your skills and knowledge to the students you guide during the MRP Introductory Courses. When you are ready, you will continue studying your MRPs in the following years.

Your learning path during the Mindfulness Teacher Training

What will you learn during the Teacher Training?

During the Trainer Module, the first year of the Mindfulness Teacher Training program, you have focused on understanding the content and philosophy behind the Mind Retreat Program (MRP). In addition, the accent was placed on how to teach, how to guide and how to present yourself during the MRP courses.

The Teacher Module, however, focuses mainly on mindfulness and self-realization. To achieve this, you will go through a 12-month Mindfulness Assessment Program. This program will teach you how to reflect on your mindfulness exercises, how to improve them, and how to monitor your progress.

The Mindfulness Assessment Program will rapidly improve your mindfulness skills and will stimulate the process of enlightenment. Your wisdom will grow, and you will start to see things more clearly and in more detail than before.

As part of the program, you will take on and master MRP Course 3 – The Mindfulness Code, guide your students through the 12-week MRP Beginner mindfulness program, and teach a series of mindfulness techniques to the participants of the 7-day MRP Intermediate Retreat. You will increase your skillset and can guide more courses, programs, and retreats as a certified MRP Teacher upon completing this module.

Personal guidance

During your Mindfulness Teacher Training, you will receive guidance from Master Niels. He will focus on two aspects:

1. Help you increase your theoretical knowledge and teach you to master the most effective mindfulness techniques.

2. Help you overcome your personal challenges.

To become a good mindfulness teacher, you must progress in both your personal growth and theoretical knowledge. To monitor your growth and knowledge, you will have 12 guided sessions throughout your study year. Ten of these session will occur within your study group.

Guided sessions during the Teacher Module

The guided sessions will allow you to discuss your progress, personal development, understanding of the study materials, next steps, and any questions you might have at that point.

The remaining 2 sessions are used for your teacher to be present during your practical exams and to evaluate your performance and knowledge.

For personal questions and urgent matters between these sessions, you can contact your teacher by email. Students are encouraged to use the Student Community on our online platform for mindfulness for general questions. Using the Student Community can help other students who may have the same question(s) as you.

We expect you to work independently with the materials offered in the Teacher Training study modules on our online platform for mindfulness.

Flexibility of self-study

Self-study is a vital part of the Mindfulness Teacher Training program. We offer an online learning platform where you can learn independently and go through the Pre-MRP courses and additional study materials such as theory & extra guided sessions.

Our self-study program offers students the flexibility to schedule their study time. However, we encourage all students to progress through their studies at a similar pace to ensure completion within one year.

This approach also allows for peer-to-peer learning, enabling you to connect and learn from other students’ experiences on the online platform. We stimulate our students to use our dedicated online Student Community to discuss study materials, ask questions, share experience, and practice together.

Student community

At the beginning of their Mindfulness Teacher Training, students are divided into groups. In addition to a general Student Community, students also form their own, smaller working group in which they learn together, share experiences, ask questions, and practice together.

The opportunity to practice together and have personal contact with fellow students has proven to be a valuable addition that contributes positively to the development and motivation of the student.

Because the teachers and support team of the Inner Mind Institute also play an active role, the community is the ideal communication channel for all substantive and practical matters about the Teacher Training.

Duration of the training

The Teacher Module takes 12 months and is part of the Mindfulness Teacher Training program that lasts a total of three years.

You are free to decide whether you want to continue with the third year after completing this module. With twelve months, the Mindfulness Teacher Training program lasts longer than, for example, the MBSR course, where you can ultimately only teach a single 8-week course.

The Inner Mind Institute’s Mindfulness Teacher Training, on the other hand, offers you the opportunity to guide multiple courses, retreats, one-on-one sessions, or even guide your own students.

Student profile

Our Mindfulness Teacher Training is perfect for anyone who is motivated to learn and transfer the true essence of mindfulness to others. For you to be successful, it’s essential that you are willing to spend sufficient time on your mindfulness practice and are eager to delve into the deeper teachings of mindfulness.

Compared to other teacher training courses, you can learn everything about the essence of mindfulness up to the path to enlightenment at the Inner Mind Institute. That means you can learn a lot more about mindfulness than just the basics. Not only do you learn special techniques, but you also learn to master them in such a way that you can let go of your problem areas. As a result, you can live your life with inner peace and true happiness.

The Teacher Module is for those who have previously completed the first year of the Mindfulness Teacher Training program, the Trainer Module.

Tests and exams

To complete this module, you will take on several tests and exams to test your knowledge. You will conclude the second module of the Mindfulness Teacher Training program by guiding the introductory mindfulness course The Mindfulness Code (MRP Course 3), the 12-week MRP Beginner program, and the MRP Intermediate Retreat techniques during the 7-day MRP Intermediate Retreat.

Passing these tests and exams ensures that you are experienced and qualified to offer a high level of mindfulness education. That’s why, after completing this module, you are immediately ready to continue your professional career as a mindfulness MRP Teacher.

While this approach may be less certain in terms of income, it allows you to reach more people and contribute to the spread of MRP globally. Regardless of which option you choose, becoming an MRP Trainer is a great way to help others and earn money at the same time.
