Online Mindfulness Teacher Training 2020 

This course is for people who wish to become Mindfulness/ Meditation trainers. The programme is presented in a format that will allow new teachers to conduct courses/ workshops for individuals, groups and companies. The course provides a framework which presents the life-changing benefits of meditation to be practised. Students will be equipped both theoretically and practically to teach mindfulness techniques.

The program is based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme. Participants will learn the theory and techniques of Mindfulness practice. In addition, participants will learn how to present and teach mindfulness meditation to clients and groups.


This online course includes live interactive sessions. In addition, participants are expected to carry out some course work between sessions (one homework task per session taking between 2-4 hours). The tasks are not formal assessment and may include practical exercises.

Jilly Edmundson, who will be delivering the course, has studied, researched and lectured on Mindfulness/ meditation and holds a Professional Certificate in Education and BSc, First Class with Honours, in Complementary Medicine and Health Sciences, MSc in Psychology and, is also a qualified yoga instructor.

If you would grow 


If you would grow to your best self
Be patient, not demanding
Accepting, not condemning
Nurturing, not withholding

Self-marveling, not belittling
Gently guiding, not pushing and punishing
For you are more sensitive than you know
Mankind is as tough as war yet delicate as flowers
We can endure agonies but we open fully only to warmth and light

And our need to grow is as fragile as a fragrance dispersed by storms of will
To return only when those storm are still
So, accept, respect, and attend your sensitivity
A flower cannot be opened with a hammer
