Open to all students who have a strong personal mindfulness meditation practice and can make a commitment to 40-45 hours this term.
How The Program Works
Completion of the program requires students to participate in 20 hours of Mindful Moments meditation sessions, 10 hours of in-class training via Zoom and the co-facilitation of drop in meditations. You will learn how to structure a lesson, and develop skills in public speaking and facilitating group dialogue.
During the program, you will demonstrate your understanding of the origins, research and benefits of practising mindfulness. The training culminates in leading an entire meditation session on your own.
Facilitators-in-training receive feedback from the mindfulness and meditation programming coordinator and their peers throughout the process.
