BECOME A MINDFULNESS TRAINER USING PROVEN & SUCCESSFUL METHODS

& Experience The Transformative Power of Breathing

The ability to control attention is one of the key markers of a successful life but in our fast-paced world, where the increasing demands of living puts enormous stress on all people, children, teenagers and adults, the simple art of just being present and content without external stimulation is disappearing at speed with the ubiquitous sources of distraction we all are more and more exposed to and involved with .

Fortunately, with regular mindfulness practice we can develop a state of being uninterrupted, stress-free that allows the natural state of joy to arise in you as you make more direct and meaningful contact within yourself and with the world around you. Mindfulness exercises are designed to train our awareness and the ability to stay calm under stress and turbulence as well as having better sleep and increased resilience.

This course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the mechanisms that underpins mindfulness widespread success and application as well as all the exercises that will help you establish your own regular practice and the additional training, tools and resources to successfully guide groups or one to one sessions.

“Why not make the inner world, where we spend most of our time,
a still, silent and calm place to be?”

a brain free of self-doubt


Teaching mindfulness is about guiding people to their own mindfulness practice. It’s about co-creating an environment where mindfulness can ‘happen’.
In this ‘safe space’ everyone has the ability to come into a deeper contact with who they really are.

There is a great need for skilled mindfulness trainers in all capacities to help others to deal with increasing stress and anxiety. To help for example young people to overcome over-thinking and negative self-talk etc.

Benefits such as:
• Decreased stress and anxiety
• Better sleep
• Better self-management
• Less reactivity
• Improved mental resilience
• Better focus
• Increased self-awareness

are commonplace when you practice mindfulness regularly.

“This has been a wonderful course and I look forward to sharing what I have learned with others!”

Guide mindfulness with Integrity, Confidence & Authenticity

The Key Points of Successful Facilitation

Mindfulness can’t be learnt by just talking or reading about it. Mindfulness is experiential. To be able to teach mindfulness you need to understand how it works from the inside out. Teaching mindfulness is about guiding people to their own mindfulness practice. It’s about co-creating an environment where mindfulness can ‘happen’. In this ‘safe space’ everyone has the ability to come into a deeper contact with who they really are by continually being offered the possibility of surrendering to the present moment, exactly as it is, without an agenda or expected outcome.

During the two days we will be looking carefully at the basic neuroscience; how purposefully connecting with the body’s self-calming para-sympathetic nervous system leads to- lower stress and anxiety, increased attention and mental clarity, improved social and emotional intelligence and a host of other life-enhancing benefits.

In this course you will learn, as the teacher/guide, how to use language, your voice, authority and authenticity to create an environment, where a deep trust between participants naturally arises as well as a sense of freedom and safety.
To guide mindfulness is like nothing else, it is not teaching in a traditional sense, it is not therapy. It is more like ‘decluttering’ the over-filled, busy mind.

By establishing your own Mindfulness practice and the fundamental understanding of how mindfulness works from a more scientific point of view, you will build the foundation needed to effectively guide others on to their own mindfulness journey.

This is an interactive course covering theory, activities and practices. You will have opportunity to deepen your own Mindfulness practice and be empowered by the discovery that you can self-manage your thoughts and emotions. Participants also get the chance to guide classes for first-hand experience.

The SECRET To ULTIMATE WELLBEING


Breath is the ultimate key to your wellbeing. Done right (with presence and awareness), breathing transforms the whole life; physical, mental, emotional.

Our breathing patterns are a ‘record’ of the stress and anxiety embedded in the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)

We can learn to restore and revitalise our minds and bodies through breath awareness, re-learn normal patterns of breathing and at the same time release the ‘learned’ stress and anxious thinking that leads to dysregulation, over reactivity, fearfulness, stress and anxiety and depression. Once restored to normal function…breathing becomes the therapeutic tool to maintain calm, emotional balance and general ease, even as we face the inevitable daily challenges life throws at us. We remain anchored at all times when we learn to release and relax through regular breathing practices

Become aware of your life energy and life intelligence and the many ways you can learn to direct your experience- for example from stress to calm, unpleasant to peaceful and open the doorway to understanding how to be so present in your body you recognise the inevitable energy shift throughout the day, recognise when negative energy in the form of news cycles, gossip, external sounds, inner negative thoughts.

Familiarise yourself with a closer connection to your thoughts and feelings and know when to intercept ( for example-stop reliving unhappy events from the past- giving it fuel so that it overwhelms your nervous system and generates anxiety in mind and body)

    NEW COURSE

    DECODING DISCONNECTION


    Too often we are trapped in the prisons of our own minds. When we listen to the inner chatter too much, are constantly connected and distracted by devices, lose connection with community and each other in meaningful way, fail to truly listen to others -we lose contact with ourselves, others and nature- all important for our wellbeing and mental health.

    Intentionally cultivating a connection to nature has been shown  reduce the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. The constant demands of this fast-paced world, work and life in general can be corrected. Reconnecting with ourselves, others and the natural world are all necessary to maintain inner calm, mental clarity.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Mindfulness means “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn. (Founder of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction)

    Mindfulness is a way of noticing where your attention is in the present moment without judging it good or bad. It’s about not wandering off into an imagined future or going over the past but fully engaging right here right now.

    The ability to focus on one thing at a time is a skill and requires practice. Just as athletes train on a daily basis to maintain fitness and stamina, Mindfulness, which is a mental training, requires regular daily practice to experience the many well documented benefits especially of de-stressing, relaxing the body and generally self-managing in a new and empowering way.

    Through guided, simple easy-to-do practisies you are training the mind to be more present in the moment. resulting in it to be less anxious, more alert and alive.

    Everyone really and especially anyone

    • Who over-thinks
    • Thinks anxiously as a regular behavior.
    • Stressed people
    • People who engage in constant negative self-talk
    • People who can’t sleep because of incessant inner chatter
    • People who operate on ‘auto-pilot’ and are always ‘on’..
    Current research tells us 20 minutes a day is required to achieve lasting benefits. This can be broken into two 10 minutes sessions-easily do-able when you experience the inner calm and rest from the robotic mind.
    You will slowly (sometimes quickly) begin to experience a lightness of being, less anxiety, better sleep, easier communications and a general improved sense of well-being and have more energy. These are not empty promises but almost guaranteed if you follow the instructions, do the practices regularly and begin to live more Mindfully.
    Yes, you get a certificate after completing the 2 days training and the 8 week online component which is a 8 week self-paced course to establish your own practice.
    Meditation and Mindfulness are very similar the only difference being that Meditation takes many more forms;chanting, mantras as well as breathing and visualisations however Mindfulness meditation is a specific set of exercises that focus exclusively on the five senses.
    Many places that run Mindfulness courses do so on a donation basis and are connected to spiritual centers. Mindfulness in New Zealand is an independent group and the trainers pay to live just like everyone else. Everybody needs to be paid for their effort as well as the cost of hiring venues and paying advertising to let people know the courses exist.
    The 2 day course is an immersion into mindfulness facilitation, covering all ground; science behind it, practices, methods, tools and resources. It gives you a strong foundation and also ongoing support afterwards and many of the attendants start implementing these techniques in their profession directly after the course. With that said, in the end, it is your regular practice and self enquiry together with you own communication and coaching skills that leads to the ability to facilitate effectively. 
    No, the course is for teaching everyone, adults, children, teenagers, although it has grown out of working with students.
    Yes, it is accredited with IMMA (International Mindfulness and Meditation Alliance).
    I had the pleasure of studying with Mindfulness in Australia and completed their 8 weeks Mindfulness Facilitator Training certification including the 2 day live workshop.
    Having studied several mindfulness courses I was looking for something more comprehensive, I must say this was the best training I have done this far. The course content was clear, concise and leading edge. Rita as a facilitator is approachable and knowledgeable. The sheer amount of resources provided with the course sets you up for success and has been a huge asset to my business”.
