Mindfulness Based Approaches (Train to be a Mindfulness Teacher)

Successful students gain the certificate of mindfulness teacher competence. Applicants take 4 teacher training modules sequentially, and the research module alongside any of the 4 teacher training modules. There will be one year when applicants are doing 2 modules at the same time. The first 3 teaching modules, and the research module are delivered over 5 weekends a year from Bangor, and the teaching days for the assessed teaching practice (in year 4) are given during a single TTR2 retreat. Please note, if you wish to take this route please register for a Post-graduate Diploma, and then you can transfer the credits over to the Masters (thus sacrificing the Diploma) if you wish to do the research and thesis modules.
