Mindfulness teacher development programme 2023 / 2024 met o.a. Anne Speckens & Nicole Schoonbrood
19 mei 2023 - 18 maart 2024
This programme is for those teaching mindfulness-based applications in contemporary settings such as health care, education and other organisations.
In the course of a year, over three modules and one retreat, you will deepen your understanding and practice of the Buddhist roots of mindfulness. Enriching your personal practice and understanding in ways that have a positive impact not only on your personal life, but also the way you teach and relate to the suffering of your participants.
The programme includes personal practice, dialogue, instruction, small group exercises, creativity, and individual and peer supervision. During the three modules, mornings will be dedicated to silent meditative practice and reflection on this practice using insight dialogue techniques. Afternoons will start with thematic sessions offered by the teachers, followed by small groups exchanging how these themes impact on your personal lives, your teaching and the lives of your participants. The afternoons will end with a Q&A session with the teachers. In the evenings, creative space will be offered to work with the themes in a more experiential way.
The five-day, in-person silent retreat provides a longer and more intensive silent meditative practice. More information on the theme of the retreat can be found here.
During the course, five individual supervision sessions will be offered by the teachers on a dana basis. In between the modules and retreat, three InterVision (peer-coaching) sessions will be organized to exchange knowledge and support amongst peers.
