Code of Conduct for Mindful Academy Solterreno

200hr Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training

 

Dear (students name)

Thank you for joining the 200 hour Mindful Meditation Teacher Training programme. We hope you enjoy the course and find it informative and inspiring. In order to maintain high standards and ensure that we keep our good reputation, it is important that you reach a certain minimum standard. Whenever we feel that this is not the case, we will talk to you personally and try to put things right. The assessment and coaching is on a continuous basis and you are expected to attend and take part in all training sessions, and complete the course self-study.

To help you develop, you will receive constructive feedback on your progress and be formally assessed 2 times with one-to-one feedback with Bodhin Philip Woodward, Director of Training. Students who do not meet the required standards will be asked to improve on the areas of development, and demonstrate that they have done this, before being issued with a certificate. All successful students can be registered on our database of accredited Mindful Meditation Teachers.

This Code of Conduct is a summation and declaration of acceptable, ethical, and professional behavior by which all Yoga Alliance Professionals Registered Meditation Teachers agree to conduct the teaching and business of Mindfulness Meditation.

As a Registrant of Mindful Meditation Teacher Training, I agree to uphold the ethical goals set forth in the following Code of Conduct:

 3. To maintain and uphold the traditions of Mindful Academy Solterreno. To teach Meditation from the experience of these traditions and to disseminate these teachings to anyone, from any background, who earnestly desires to follow these traditions.

4. Uphold the integrity of my vocation by conducting myself in a professional and conscientious manner.

5. Acknowledge the limitations of my skills and scope of practice and where appropriate, refer students to seek alternative instruction, advice, treatment, or direction.

6. Create and maintain a safe, clean, and comfortable environment for the practice of meditation.

7. Encourage diversity actively by respecting all students regardless of age, physical limitations, race, creed, gender, ethnicity, religion affiliation, or sexual orientation.

8. Respect the rights, dignity, and privacy of all students.

9. Avoid words and actions that constitute sexual harassment.

10. Follow all local government and national laws that pertain to my Meditation teaching and business.

 

I agree to comply with the conditions and requirements as set out in the course curriculum, and accept that failure to do so will disqualify me from any accreditation.

I attended the TT1 in March 2020, which was the first TT1 course online - due to the Coronavirus circumstances. I had my doubts about how we could lead the meditations online and be open within the group that I had not met in person before.
