The development and interest in Mindfulness MBSR is rapidly growing and training processes are therefore becoming more structured. Within the UK and Spain there are currently no formal or official qualifications/certification processes which regulate competency in teaching mindfulness- based approaches, this may or not be the case in your country.
This requires those of us working in this developing field to inquire deeply into our own practice, our integrity, our intentions and the boundaries of our skill, competencies and understandings. To meet these recommendations and as a professional and accredited Teacher Training School we exceed the Educational Standards required by the Yoga Alliance for teaching professional MBSR Meditation Teachers and follow the UK Network for Mindfulness-based Teacher Trainers Best Practice Guidelines. We are also involved in setting up the Best Practice Guidelines for Spain.
Our course is accredited and registered with the Yoga Alliance in the UK, so on graduation from both TTR1 and TTR2 you will have a recognised qualification as a MBSR Teacher. If you are a resident of the UK or Ireland this registration also includes insurance to teach. We recommend that all graduates take out teaching insurance, if you already have professional insurance as Therapist or Yoga Teacher you may just need to send a copy of your certificate to your insurance Company for them to add MBSR Teaching to your cover. Perhaps this would be a way for you to check compatibility in your home Country.
