DESCRIPTION: As the benefits of mindfulness practices are becoming more widely recognised, there is now a growing demand in schools and work places for mindfulness training and trained mindfulness facilitators.

In this 2 day accredited certificate course you will not only be introduced to and learn the the powerful Mindfulness techniques that are helping individuals from all walks of life to have more balance and focus in their lives. You will also receive the tools and training to teach these techniques to anyone around you, including students and children.

In our increasingly distracted and fragmented world we now have to ‘teach’ mindfulness to re-empower people with their own natural ability to restore the fragmented mind to a state of wholeness and presence.

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 and a sense of freedom and safety also.
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.

Take out the guesswork

It could be a daunting task to implement a mindfulness plan if you didn’t know where to start…

With this training and the resources that comes with it, there is no need to “reinvent the wheel” as we will be looking into how to design a program for each participant’s specific purposes and learn from each others experience.

This course gives you the background, science, practices and techniques to teach/guide others and to establish a regular practice yourself.

Understanding how the brain works goes a long way to empowering people to practice mindfulness. Mindfulness ‘teaches’ us how thoughts and feelings affect our state of being and how we are able to train ourselves, intentionally, to observe the activity of the mind without becoming entrapped and start believing every thought the mind produces or be swept away by every emotion felt.

Mindfulness trains us to recognise we have a choice of where to put our attention and to recognise when we are becoming trapped in unhelpful thinking.

The course is based on the successful programme Mindful NZ Schools has been running the past seven years as well as latest research and techniques on teaching mindfulness designed by the original MBSR members
who trained with Jon Kabat-Zinn.

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.


IN SHORT-What will you learn?

In our fast-paced world, where the increasing demands of living puts enormous stress on all people, children, teenagers and adults, the purposeful, daily cultivation of minimising stress, self-regulation, connection to self, others and the world around us has been proven to assist mental, emotional and physical balance.

This training will give you a resource to improve everyone’s, including adults, students and children’s ability to deal with stress and anxiety as well as improve attention and focus and cultivate kindness and empathy.
Benefits such as:

  • Decreased stress and anxiety
  • Better sleep
  • Better self-management
  • Less reactivity
  • Improved mental resilience
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Better memory
  • Increased attention and focus
  • Better conflict resolution skills

are common and expectable result from regular Mindfulness practice.

It doesn’t matter if you never meditated or done one Mindfulness exercise in your life, this course is for anyone who are moved to establish their own Mindfulness practice and get the tools and resources to help others to improve focus, mental resilience and impulse control.


Tools & Resources

    “With Mindfulness training you are not adding to your knowledge in the
    traditional sense – you are in fact removing some of the mental clutter
    that is holding you back from being naturally mindful and in a state of
    equilibrium”.Rita Riccola



    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)

    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.

    Why Mindfulness?


    Research over the past few decades has found that Mindfulness training helps to;

    Placeholder

    Relieve Anxiety & Stress


    In our fast paced lives, where we rush from one demand to another, there is very little time or space to stop and pause. Mindfulness offer the tools needed to connect with our inner intelligence, where we can access natural calmness beneath the busy minds.


    Placeholder

    Let go of Anger & Frustration


    Coming in contact with your direct experience in the mindful state allows us to become familiar with the patterns that direct our lives; our thoughts, emotions and reactions.


    Placeholder

    OVERCOME NEGATIVE THINKING


    Pain is an inevitable part of being human but suffering is optional. In mindfulness we learn how to manage our thoughts and emotions instead of letting emotions and thoughts manage us.

    Placeholder

    STOP INNER CHATTER


    Aimless thinking and inner chatter is draining our energy and clouding over the present moment. One of the most common benefits from regular mindfulness training is greater mental clarity and a new sense of inner peace.


    Placeholder

    Have Better Sleep


    To be able stop incessant thinking and worrying is one of the great benefits of Mindfulness and it makes it easier to go to sleep and have unbroken sleep throughout the night.


    Placeholder

    STOP LIVING IN THE PAST


    Mindfulness practices increasingly bring you more into the present with the growing awareness that going over the past keeps you stuck in the past.

    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’s Meditation and Mindfulness Alliance)
