Advanced Teach Mindfulness Program
Get Certified to teach Mindfulness AND Kindfulness
Kindfulness is a concept that builds on top of Mindfulness, developed by Ajahn Chah, Ajahn Brahm, Shamash Alidina and originally from core Buddhist principles that have often been lost in modern mindfulness training programs.

Kindfulness focuses on the discovery and cultivation of kindness towards your own self and the difference it has on your life.

Mindfulness, Kindness and Compassion together (Kindfulness) are proven in the latest scientific research to be the best way to optimise your body and mind for a happy, healthy, productive and successful life. And it feels great too!
 The Advanced Teach Mindfulness Program (Certified) covers the main aspects of Mindfulness AND Kindfulness.

"I found the course very good value for money - although I was a bit apprehensive about the price to start with. It provided a really good insight into how to share mindfulness in both a personal and corporate setting. Completing this course has provided me with the skills and knowledge to feel confident in sharing the benefits of mindfulness in a corporate setting. I am so grateful for the valuable tools and techniques shared during the course and have already started my own teaching practice. Shamash is certainly an expert in the field, embodying the attitudes of mindfulness during every interaction I had with him. Thank you Shamash!"

In my opinion the course is very complete and filled all my expectations and more! It certainly is value for the money! I was in the search of a teacher training course to widen my knowledge of mindfulness meditation and particularly to learn how to best share this knowledge. However, all were abroad or lasted to long. Shamash's course was perfect for me. Although I was a bit sceptical about online courses I came to realize that it doesn't matter if the teacher and fellow students are on the other side of the world, one can really get in touch and learn! Shamash is a wonderful and insightful teacher. I highly recommend this and any other of his courses.

The programme was very beneficial in many ways both from a personal practice perspective and from the perspective of being able to teach the programme, or an adaptation of it, in the workplace. I particularly enjoyed Shamash's style which throughout was one of interest, curiosity, openness and a desire to help us all get as much out of the programme as we could. It gave me a clearer view of teaching the 8 week programme. It gave me many insights as to how I could adapt this for the workplace. The way that we were taken through each of the exercises to understand what each of them were trying to achieve helped with the potential adaptation to different audiences. Going through the enquiry process and giving live examples of doing this enquiry was also very useful. It's similar to techniques I have used in other facilitation settings so seeing it in action on this course gave me confidence that I can do that as I have done it in other ways in many workplace settings. I look forward to training with Shamash again in the future!

Is There Any Homework?
Over the period of the course (the first week is an orientation session), you are asked to practice the recommended mindfulness meditations and exercises daily, read from our course books in preparation for discussion in the next session, and journal about your meditation experience. We call it ‘home experiments’, not homework.You will also create a fun and creative project at the programme’s culmination.
What Does a Typical Session Look Like?
A typical session includes theory, opportunity to listen to a meditation being guided, and training on how to teach this particular session to a group and some discussion over the key theme of the session. You can ask questions live as we go along. There will be a Q&A session at the end of each session.
Certification
A certificate will be issued at the end of training. The certificate will state ” [Your Name] has successfully completed 200 hours Advanced Teach Mindfulness and Kindfulness Training. The training was led by Shamash Alidina, Mindfulness Author and Coach.” when you successfully complete the written work. The 100 hours training includes live online training (20 hours), personal mindfulness practice (about 40 hours), reflective reading (at least 25 hours) and final project (at least 10 hours). This certificate can be used for your Continuing Professional Development.
Ongoing Support
We offer a Private Facebook Group so you can be supported by your co-coach, who’s someone else you choose from the group. Shamash is also in that group if you have any questions that you’re struggling with, and answers questions as and when he can. You can also support each other within that group. Many people end up supporting each other for months or years ahead! You are also put into a Teach Mindfulness Graduates Private Facebook Group at the end of the training, so you can continue to get support from all the others who’ve completed our program, all over the world!
