Many mindfulness teachers find themselves falling short as they begin to attempt to communicate the wonderful teachings of mindfulness.
Becoming confident in teaching takes time but often teachers can make it difficult for themselves. They can easily complicate an utterly simple practice sending students into their thinking, analysing mind. This is when it can get tricky. Rather than lengthy technical explanations a shrug of the shoulder, a smile, a story or a metaphor can bring the students' mind to a halt and a new understanding.
The material is based on Suryacitta's latest book, A Mindfulness Teachers Handbook- How to surprise your students, not just with what you teach, but by how you teach.
All material will expand on the three pillars of good teaching.
Simple - you will be shown that keeping teaching simple, is more effective. You will explore how to keep teaching in the here and now and not to get lost in over explanation. This makes it easier for you, the teacher.
Elegant - Elegance is what you leave out. Many teachers say far too much and over complicate this simple and profound practice. Suryacitta will show you that what you leave out, is as important as what you put in.
Practical - Teaching has to be practical and relevant to a persons' life. Here you will explore how to apply mindfulness in every area of life.
Our Masterclass training is suitable for:
Professionals wanting to use mindfulness in their chosen setting such as therapy, counselling and health care
Workplace mindfulness facilitators wanting to create a culture of mindfulness in their workplace for managers and staff
Community mindfulness facilitators - anybody wanting to teach mindfulness within their community via mindfulness courses or drop-ins.
When sharing mindfulness we are not just speaking to a student’s intellect but to their intuitive wisdom “behind” the mind. This is when students tend to reflect, to go quiet and process rather than just wanting answers.
During the online sessions there will be time for question and answers and explore areas of teaching such as:
The role of insight in mindfulness practice and teaching
The principle behind all practices
The inquiry process
Allowing silence to be the teacher
Why saying less is meaning more
The four noble truths - the roots of mindfulness
Leave your students wanting to learn more!!
