With the new international criteria for ongoing education and supervision for mindfulness teachers, as developed in the Global Integrity Network in 2016, the mindfulness field sees an increasing demand for experienced supervisors. Supervisors who are steeped in the mindfulness practice, and who are able to support, encourage and challenge their supervisees in their development, deepening their experience and understanding of the work in mindfulness.
When you are a senior teacher and supervisor, or on your way to become one, this might be the program for you. This training welcomes teachers of mindfulness based programs (MBPs) with an experience of at least 20 programs over a period of 5 years or more. An intake session (online or via telephone) will be part of the registration procedure. This program is meant for teachers wishing to have a solid ground in supervision, while maintaining a mindful holding of the supervision process.
