Choosing to do Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher Training at Solterreno was, with hindsight, one of the best decisions I could have made on my journey to becoming a qualified mindfulness teacher.
Quality teaching was important to me and for that teaching to be rooted in ethical values and for the teaching process to be centred around how to provide the best quality teaching to others.
I found the structure of the course was excellent. There was a significant amount of opportunity to practice the delivery of meditations and didactic teachings, this helped us to grow in confidence and ability. Bodhin and Tuire supervised the teachings and provided feedback which was done in a really helpful and skilful way to help us to improve. Bodhin has a kind nature and significant experience in mindfulness and meditation which meant that I learnt a lot but also learnt in a nurturing and wonderful environment.
The retreat format meant that the group really bonded and we've gone on to be a close group and routinely contact each other for ideas and inspiration as we embark on our teaching journey.
And all of this is set in a beautiful Spanish countryside setting, with homemade vegetarian Mediterranean food and a wonderful retreat centre community.
If you are considering where to do your mindfulness teacher training then I couldn't recommend Solterreno highly enough.
