This non-residential* training workshop (on line and at our venue in Honor Oak Park, SE23) will facilitate the deepening of your personal mindfulness practice.
The main focus will be on developing sound teaching skills in MBCT meditation and skills in inquiry and dialogue. The course is self-directed in parts but also includes a number of interactive and experiential elements. You will be required to demonstrate teaching skills in small groups and discuss your experiences with one another, as well as actively doing meditation homework and demonstrations.
The training is in line with established MBCT trainer training standards (see UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations). It consists of a minimum of 30 hours of direct teaching and supervision, includes triad practice on line and requires reading the course hand-out prior to attending the live training in London. We only train a maximum of 12 participants (thus ensuring a student-to-teacher ratio of 6:1). The course fee includes basic refreshments but not meals.
