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.
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.
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.
As a part of the examination for this Mindfulness Teacher Training, you will record 3 mindfulness sessions for your teacher and at least one other mindfulness teacher or master. The sessions will be assessed, after which you will receive personal substantive feedback.
Don’t worry about the weight of these exams. Your personal development and demonstrating that you master the techniques and theories are paramount during your studies.
After completing your Mindfulness Teacher Training, you can give the introductory course, ‘The Essence of Mindfulness,’ to other students. The EMIC is a 10-week mindfulness course existing out of 10 sessions. You introduce your students to mindfulness and teach them the new internal and external mindfulness techniques you learned to master during your Mindfulness Teacher Training.
You have the option to become a mindfulness teacher at the Inner Mind Institute or even set up an Inner Mind Institute franchise.
You do not have to have any previous education to start the Mindfulness Teacher Training. It is even possible to start the training without any experience, although it will undoubtedly help you when you already have more experience. However, it is essential that you are motivated to learn, eager to help others, and willing to devote the necessary time to your education.
After you have purchased the Mindfulness Teacher Training module, we will contact you to schedule your first session. In preparation for this session, we ask you to answer several questions (questions will follow in our first email) to get a picture of you as a person and where you stand now. Additionally, we ask you to prepare a list of personal goals and questions you would like to discuss during the session.
As you can study individually at our online platform and receive direct (online) personal guidance, you can start your Mindfulness Teacher Training at any moment of the year. The study program is made for you to complete the study within one year.
Our Mindfulness Teacher Training costs €1850 (EUR) for one year, paid in advance. You can also choose to pay in installments of €165 EUR/month for a period of twelve months.
