Follow our Teacher Training and become a mindfulness teacher

Welcome to our Teacher Training! If you are interested in becoming a mindfulness teacher, our teacher training is the right path for you.

Our teacher training is not for everyone, though. If you do not want to spend time on your mindfulness practice, neither do you want to dive into the more profound teachings of mindfulness, this training is probably not suitable for you. On the other hand, if you are motivated and want to learn the essence of mindfulness to help others, you are in the right place!

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 overcome any problem point. You will be able to live your life with inner peace and true happiness.

When can you start?

When you’ve followed our introduction course, you are ready to start with your teacher training. You can follow the vast majority of the training online at your own pace. The first module takes one year, and after you’ve passed your tests and exams, you become an Inner Mind Trainer, and you can start giving The Essence of Mindfulness Introduction Course (EMIC) to others.

If you feel like continuing your study, you’ve the possibility of continuing your teacher training next level to become an Inner Mind Teacher or even a Master.

The Mindfulness Code

Master Niels de Stürler Boekwijt, the founder of the IMI, has been taught for many years by Buddhist monk Master Thanadith. Master Niels has been given the assignment to spread all valuable new knowledge about mindfulness globally – the so-called The Mindfulness Code. The Mindfulness Code is a practice and methodology that leads to inner peace and enlightenment and is still unexplored to many of us. Together with you, we would like to change that.

Niels de Stürler Boekwijt is the founder of the Inner Mind Institute. While currently living as a monk, Master Niels guides retreats in Thailand, organized by the Inner Mind Institute.

Since 2010 Master Niels traveled multiple times to Thailand to expand his knowledge about mindfulness, eventually becoming a monk for the first time in 2015. This year, in 2020, Master Niels will live as a monk for one full year. His ultimate goal is to find enlightenment and to spread his knowledge to his students.

In the Netherlands Niels works as an osteopath, treating people in the Inner Mind Center in Oegstgeest and he organizes mindfulness courses and retreats in The Netherlands and Thailand.

You can learn more about Master Niels in the documentary The White Monk. The documentary is to be released later this year. Subscribe to the newsletter to receive updates about the documentary and it’s release date.
