    Essential skills for mental health and wellbeing in a changing world.

    Do you ever find yourself stuck in a rut of repetitive thinking like a hamster in a wheel replaying the same thoughts again, and again? Maybe you have noticed thoughts about work are upsetting your work life balance?

    In this introductory workshop we will explore how the skills of mindfulness, social and emotional intelligence and advances in neuroscience can help to train the brain to pay attention to the present moment with curiosity and kindness, rather than getting carried away to the past or an imagined future.

    This webinar will also be published on the CPD Standards Office CPDSO YouTube channel.

    More details and how to book

  • Pre-course and on-going mindfulness supervision is an important part of the good practice requirements for both student teachers starting out on the Teacher Training Pathway (TTP) and qualified teachers of mindfulness-based classes, workshops, and courses. It can provide you with an invaluable opportunity to reflect upon and inquire about your mindfulness teaching and practice, and if just starting out on your Teacher Training Pathway (TTP) help you prepare for your course.

    Ongoing Supervision may include 'live' teaching practice and feedback, inquiry around issues arising in your teaching, and/or discussion based on videoed sessions. It may also focus upon your personal mindfulness practice including Mindful Movement and how it impacts on your work. Unlike other experiences of supervision that you may have had, though, what is unique to mindfulness supervision is that the session itself is imbued with mindfulness in terms of practice, embodied presence and compassion.

    Supervision with Mindful Academy International also counts towards your annual CPD/CEU requirements and professional CPD Standards Office certificates will be issued for your CPD record.
