It consists of a blended learning approach of virtual classroom teaching sessions ( 21 hours ) within a group setting and self-directed study. It is important that you attend all sessions (you can book a private catch up session if needed at a cost).
MindfulnessUK provides a student handbook, 4-core meditations, bonus e-Course electronically as well as comprehensive course notes in hard copy that we post to your home (if you reside within the UK and provide in a PDF to download if outside the UK).
The self-directed study comprises of the following elements that must be completed if the learner wishes to become a listed teacher with BAMBA (the * refers to additional cost – please see related FAQ):
*Teach two supervised 8-week MBSR courses – Deliver two courses to a group – remotely supervised by one of the MindfulnessUK team.
*Attend a Process of Inquiry Masterclass.
*Attend Silent Meditation Retreats totalling 5 days throughout the year.
