Mindfulness Teacher Training Course (MTTC)
Tools for Change

An Overview





The MTTC falls into two six-month modules.

Module 1. We devote the first 6 months to the practice of mindfulness with specific themes per month.

Module 2. We devote the second six-month module to the practice of teaching of mindfulness.

Module 2. MTTC includes comprehensive details on facilitation, the teacher role and organisation. Specific mindfulness practices and associated themes continue throughout the second module.  


During Module 2, we provide a detailed PDF to organise and lead a series of mindfulness classes.

You will receive a training in ethics, safeguards and professional guidelines for your role as a mindfulness teacher.

MTTC requires you to submit a portfolio including your monthly reflections, classes, understanding of mindfulness and practice.

We will provide you with more details at the start of the Course about the portfolio.

Five Primary Areas to Develop

  1. Mindfulness

  2. Tools/Practices for Daily Life issues

  3. Empathy

  4. Communication

  5. Leadership



We employ mindfulness to develop calmness, clarity and insight.  The course shows ways to offer mindfulness for the needs of others and oneself.



Mindfulness touches every aspect of daily life. We provide a range of tools to apply mindfulness in contact with breath, body, emotions, mind states and the senses.



Empathy allows for a deep connection with all forms of life. You will apply practices of the heart to explore ways to relate to people, animals and the environment. 



Our words have power. You will explore practices of speaking and listening with care and attention. You learn how to explore skilful responses and address deep issues.



We offer organise small groups to develop skills in facilitate and teaching.   Participants will have the opportunity to give short talks and answer questions. Trainees develop ways to respond skilfully to the authority and the management of others. MTTC provides PDFs of details to remember and practice to develop confidence and clarity in teaching.

We have designed our course to benefit those who wish to apply the practices and skills of mindfulness to a wide variety of situations.


We will encourage participants to draw upon the tools for change and adapt them for their specific needs to support others

Do join.

We look forward to seeing you.
