ABOUT THE ONLINE MINDFULNESS TRAINING

In this training, you firstly learn how to master different mindfulness techniques and their underlying theories. Secondly, you learn how to apply these techniques and transfer your skills and knowledge to the students you will guide during the Essence of Mindfulness – Introductory Course.


FOR WHO IS THIS MINDFULNESS TEACHER TRAINING

Our Mindfulness Teacher Training is perfect for you if you are a motivated person who wants to learn the real essence of mindfulness and help others. Our Teacher Training is not for everyone, though. If you do not want to spend time on your mindfulness practice or dive into the more profound teachings of mindfulness, this training is probably not suitable for you.

Compared to other teacher trainings, you will learn everything about the essence of mindfulness up to the road to enlightenment. That means you get to know much more about mindfulness than just the basics. Not only will you learn other techniques, but you will learn to master them in such a way that you can let go of your problem points. As a result, you will be able to live your life with inner peace and true happiness.


SELF-STUDY AND PERSONAL GUIDANCE

During your Mindfulness Teacher Training, you will be guided by one of our masters or teachers. The masters and teachers will focus on two aspects. Firstly, they will help you deepen your theoretical knowledge and teach you to master the latest and most effective mindfulness techniques. Secondly, they will help you to overcome your personal challenges.

To become a good trainer it is important that your personal growth and theoretical progress go hand in hand and we will help you in achieving that.

All students have 9 personal sessions with their teacher to discuss their progress, personal growth, understanding of the study materials, next steps, and possible questions.

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

You are expected to learn independently with the study materials provided in the Mindfulness Teacher Training module on our online platform.
