• Why Supervision is important:

    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.

    As we feel that Supervision is a vital part of learning to teach Mindfulness we include 1 individual pre-course Orientation Supervision call and 1 individual post course Supervision call in the price of both the Teaching Mindfulness-Based Programmes and MBSR and MBP Specialization course (worth 120 euros per course)

    Here's what Bina had to say about a recent group supervision session with Kathy -

    Thank you for the supervision session. I found it extremely beneficial. Your vast knowledge and experience as well as your support and encouragement, has made me aware of my learning gaps. As a result I am better able to mange my own learning and improve my skills. These skills include time management, engagement with participants (holding the space) as well as presenting the material without losing its essence. I appreciate the emphasis placed on own practice and being the embodiment of mindfulness. Looking forward to the next session.

    Ongoing Supervision:

    Ongoing Supervision may include 'live' teaching practice and feedback, inquiry around issues arising in your teaching, and/or discussion based on video sessions. It may also focus on 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 also counts towards your CPD/CEU requirements and professional CPD Standards Office certificates will be issued for your CPD record.

    The sessions are very much a collaborative process. The intention is to create an alliance between you and your supervisor that will foster an open and creative exploration of your personal practice and how it might interweave with your teaching and mindfulness in work. Mindfulness Supervision is complex and we take the role very seriously, Kathy Ward and Andras Barta trained as Mindfulness Supervisors with the Centre for Mindfulness Practice and Research CMRP, Bangor University in England. They follow the Mindfulness Good Practice Guidelines for Supervisors developed by the British Association of Mindfulness-Based Approaches BAMBA.
