Resources for mindfulness teachers
On this page you will find a number of resources and links which may be helpful if you want to introduce mindfulness to students. Also see our events for courses on teaching Mindfulness in HE.
The Mental Health Foundation’s ‘Be Mindful’ site has a facility for finding local eight-week mindfulness courses. http://bemindful.co.uk/learn/find-a-course/
We recommend doing either a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction [MBSR] or a Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy [MBCT] course and checking that the teacher is properly trained and following the UK Good Practice Guidelines for Mindfulness Teachers. These guidelines, which have been drawn up by the Mindfulness Centres at Bangor, Oxford and Exeter, provide an important and useful reference point for those seeking to introduce mindfulness into Higher Education settings.
Teacher Training courses are offered at Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, Bangor University, Oxford Mindfulness Centre and the university of Exeter.
The mindfulness curriculum for teenagers and how to train to deliver this can be found on the mindfulness in schools website.
