Meeting the demand for workplace specific mindfulness trainer training
Trainer training for mindfulness teachers has in the past focussed on the medical model of mindfulness teaching, which is not always a good fit for the workplace. Workplace Mindfulness Training (WorkplaceMT) is an approach to teaching mindfulness developed specifically for the workplace. WorkplaceMT has been researched and refined over a four year period.
This established trainer development programme has been developed by The Mindfulness Exchange (TME) providing would be trainers with the underpinning knowledge, skills, experience and materials required to effectively teach mindfulness to a workplace population. To date we have provided trainer training for over 100 mindfulness teaching professionals.
TME is a spin off from Oxford University’s Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC) set up to provide mindfulness training for the workplace based on scientific understanding and best practice developed in clinical research and mindfulness teaching. TME is a leader in the field of adapting scientifically validated mindfulness teaching into training formats designed for the workplace.
Our Foundation Course intensive includes the opportunity to observe the delivery of a WorkplaceMT course and discuss each session’s structure, rationale, and key learning points. It also includes underpinning theory and research input on all the key mindfulness techniques you will be learning to teach. Key aspects such as working with research, marketing, and making the business case are discussed throughout the week.
The Foundation Course is held in a stunning Georgian house on the Devon/Dorset border, 2 hours and 40 minutes from London Waterloo. It includes outside activities such as a mindful walk on Lyme Regis beach and a trip to River Cottage Canteen to sample celebrity Chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s memorable cuisine.
