Due to coronavirus, the teacher training will now be delivered in a Virtual Classroom, live, online until we are informed that we can hold training in a physical classroom once more.

The dates and times remain the same and we will be sending resources and instructions with links to access this training via devices the week before the first day commences on the 29th May at 9.30am. We realise that this is a new way of learning for some but the technology is simple and easy to use, there are breakout (individual discussion / meeting) rooms and virtual whiteboards, as well as many of the other aspects of a physical learning environment. The content and structure of the course will remain the same.

• Have you experienced the benefits and transformative effects of mindfulness and compassion yourself?

• Do you feel drawn to passing on this learning to others?

• Do you feel like starting a new career path or enhancing your existing work to improve the lives of others further?

If the answer is YES, this is this unique, Accredited Level 4 qualification is for you.

What is Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion (IMC)?

Integrating Mindfulness and Compassion is a ground-breaking course designed and developed by Karen Atkinson, author of the book Compassionate Mindful Inquiry in Therapeutic Practice, A Practical Guide for Mindfulness Teachers, Yoga Teachers and Allied Health.

Karen’s passion for making Mindfulness and Compassion accessible for everyone fuelled her to write this qualification. Through years of clinical work, she could see the benefits of teaching Mindfulness and Compassion together.

*“Teaching Mindfulness alone has many benefits, including bringing an awareness to our stress and related patterns and behaviours. However, teaching Compassion alongside it is so powerful. It enables clients to soften around their experiences, be kind to themselves, learn new and sustainable ways to look after themselves and improve relationships and wellbeing.” * – Karen Atkinson, Director of MindfulnessUK and Course Developer

This practical course teaches students about the considerations and applications to work with mindfulness in a compassionate way. With clients, in groups, or for one-to-one clients.

The six teaching days run sequentially and incorporate eight learning outcomes:

1. Use mindfulness and compassion skills for personal development
2. Understand how mindfulness practice affects health and wellbeing
3. Teach mindfulness skills and practices
4. Understand the key therapeutic elements of mindfulness and suffering
5. Understand the therapeutic qualities of self-compassion and compassion to others’ practices
6. Explain to clients how mindfulness and compassion can enhance their relationship with others
7. Understand the application of relevant neuroscience to teaching mindfulness practices
8. Continue to develop professionally

Learners will be given articles, books and internet resources and there will be assessments and assignments throughout the training.
