Mindful Education Programs

All of our mindful education programs are fully online, have any time start dates, and allow participants to go at their own pace. Mindful education programs are based in neuroscience, mindfulness principles and positive psychology and considered one of the more modern and effective approaches to teaching. These methodologies also have researched-based evidence that they lead to emotional resilience, academic success, and personal growth for both the student and teacher.

We offer three program options:

  • Certificate in Mindful Teaching (K-12) – 100 hours
  • Certificate in Mindfulness Based Adult Education (MBAE) – 100 hours
  • Diploma in Mindful Education; combines both of the above programs to teach both children and adults – 200 hours

Certificate in Mindful Teaching

Based in neuroscience, mindfulness principles and positive psychology, the goal of the mindful teacher course is to help educators build a foundation that will support their students in achieving academic and personal success including overall resilience, self-awareness, and responsible decision making, and to help students to:

  • cultivate positive behaviour
  • improve learning
  • improve performance
  • improve their relationship with themselves and others
  • improve focus
  • improve self-regulation
  • articulate their thoughts and emotions
  • express and manage anxiety and depression

The program consists of two sections: Mindful Foundations and Mindful Teacher

Section One: Mindful Foundations

This section introduces the history, principles and current trends in mindfulness including present moment awareness, attention, and intention. Participants will be introduced to a range of secular practices and techniques that will help them transform the world around them. This includes breathing techniques, mindfulness as a treatment protocol and meditation. Digital mindfulness and resources are included.
