Experience a course in mindfulness supervision and mindfulness mentoring with Suryacitta - the teacher's teacher.
The mindfulness supervision course (including mentorship for experienced meditation practitioners) is a transformational course to help you become an effective and supportive mindfulness mentor.
Transform your teaching by learning to use the three pillars of excellent mindfulness teaching:
Keeping teaching, Simple, Elegant and Practical.
The word “simple” means easily understood, presenting little difficulty, not elaborate. Suryacitta will show you how to become a mindfulness mentor and keep your mindfulness teaching simple and effective. He'll also address how not to get bogged down in needless complexity.
Elegance is achieved by what we leave out, by what we often don't say. What we don't say is just as important as what we do say. Pausing, a little silence at the right time can more more transformtional and effective than a thousand words.
My dictionary defines “practical” as being concerned with the actual doing of something rather than with ideas and theory. Keeping our mindfulness mentor teaching practical means that it should relate to real situations and be relevant to our students’ experience of everyday life.

You can explore the inquiry process in more depth and guiding meditations and any other aspect of teaching you wish to bring, including your own personal practice.
“I never realised that keeping teaching simple and direct is what makes it effective. I couldn’t have imagined that the use of pauses and silence could have such an impact.” Ady
