CPD Event title: Meditation Teacher Training
Brief Description Of Event: There is a large body of evidence to show that regular use of meditation and relaxation techniques help to reduce stress and anxiety and promote a good work/life balance.
This course concentrates on the practicalities and logistics of running meditation classes; presentation skills, dealing with challenging class members, suitable class themes, planning classes and courses, advertising and so on. This means it is useful to you whether your approach to mediation is secular or spiritual. It also means you have skills which can be generalised to running other types of therapy group if you wish.
Learning Objectives: We assume a basic level of familiarity with meditation, although some information on this is provided.
The main learning targets are concerned with running groups and classes and the course enables you to:
be aware of the history and traditions of different kinds of meditation
have an understanding of how meditation can be used for stress reduction, relaxation and personal development
be able to plan, organise and market meditation classes
be aware of wider considerations such as insurance, ethics, health and safety
be aware of a variety of secular or non-denominational meditative techniques
know a variety of subjects which can be used for focused meditation classes
be able to handle class dynamics and motivate students
Course Structure: The course is made up of
– Pre-course reading and preparation (so you get additional CPD hours without having to pay for the tutorial time)
– A one-day seminar/workshop for which proof of attendance is issued to support your CPD records
– Submission of a case study (based on running a meditation class of at least one hour with at least four people) within 12 months, after which the qualification is issued.
You will be asked to give a five-minute presentation during the workshop.
