• Level 1 pre-course study information

    The intention of the pre-course study is to deepen your embodiment and understanding of mindfulness and help you prepare to teach 10, 20 and 30 minute Core Meditation practices.  We estimate that the pre-course study will take 112 hours. This is based on an average of 8-weeks of personal and professional preparation and average reading speeds. 

    After payment of the deposit, you will be sent the pre-course study information which consists of Personal and Professional preparation, mp3's and core Mindfulness Meditation scripts and professional resources.

    • We recommend a Personal Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction meditation practice 6 out of 7 days per week
    • Arrange the 60-minute orientation Supervision session to help you get started with your pre-course preparation (worth €50)
    • We recommend that you practice guiding the core meditations out loud to your family (or a tree!) using the provided Mindful Academy International Resources and transcripts so that you are familiar with the practices and the guiding can from embodying the meditations.
