2 day in-person training
As a member of the UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations, CMI upholds standards set for training mindfulness teachers. The Training Pathway spans a minimum of 12-18 months to ensure cultivation of practice, understanding, embodiment and authenticity.
Every level of the mindfulness training pathway, like the BWY Mindfulness Module, is premised on the 8-week course, allowing for a deepening, enriched, embodied experience from which to teach mindfulness.
For those keen to pursue the Mindfulness Training Pathway, this bridging programme brings graduates of the Mindfulness Module up to the standard of Level 1. Through the Conversion course, participants are exposed to the culture and ethos of CMI including the Circle of Trust and the foundational ethics of do no harm, deep listening, respect, not taking that which is not offered, refraining from gossip and commitment to practice.
Level I Foundations is an opportunity for participants to enhance their own mindfulness practice, embed mindful compassion in everyday life and integrate it into professional life. It adds to the Modular experience by considering the formal practices more closely: the body scan, mindful movement, sitting and walking.
