Why Choose ‘Teach Mindfulness’
We give you FREEDOM. Other mindfulness teacher training programs train you in a FIXED curriculum that you absolutely have to follow. That’s boring. We believe in your innate wisdom and creativity. Once trained, you can teach in a way that you believe in effective for your client or groups.
We encourage KINDNESS. Teach Mindfulness focuses on the cultivation of kindness towards your self and the difference it has on your life. Mindfulness and compassion together (we call it Kindfulness) are proven in the latest scientific research to be the best way to optimise your body and mind for a happier, healthier you and a better world for all
We offer COMMUNITY. We have a thriving community of over 200 mindfulness teachers. We’re friends with each other and welcome you too. We connect with each other everyday. We’ve even published a book together! Why community? Because we want to support each other to change the world, and we can’t do that alone.

"Life-changing course! Absolutely fantastic"
I was given clear guidance on how to lead an 8-week course and I also deepened my own personal mindfulness practice, whilst learning to teach. There is excellent support throughout the course and a supportive reading list too. I really valued the kindness, patience, support and light-hearted sense of humour in Shamash’s teaching!

A different approach
Other trainings focus solely on Mindfulness. We bring you a full-on approach to mindfulness and kindfulness, in a 1-on-1 training, small groups or a corporate setting.
Our full package gives you a 360-coverage of all the different aspects you can meet in your teaching life and the different challenges and opportunities available for you.
Because Self-Care is Health Care
Before
People that start with Mindfulness report hard time keeping up and achieving long-lasting results. It's because there are deeper issues with the self that need to be helped first.
After
Combining Kindfulness and Mindfulness shows a substantial change in the perception of the students. They report better focus, relationships and experience with their mindfulness practice.
Meet Your Trainer
​​​​​​​Shamash Alidina
The author of the best-seller "Mindfulness for Dummies", co-founder of the first ever Museum of Happiness (London, UK) and co-founder of the Happier World Conference brings an online training to you.

Shamash is the international bestselling author of the Mindfulness For Dummies series and the book The Mindful Way through Stress

Shamash has had the honour and privilege of training with the fathers of ‘Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction’, Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD and Saki Santorelli PhD through the Center for Mindfulness in Massachusetts, United States. He has also trained extensively with the Centre of Mindfulness at Bangor University in Wales.

Mindfulness?
How it all started

Shamash has been practising mindfulness since 1998 and runs his own successful training organisation.

He is the international bestselling author of the Mindfulness For Dummies series and The Mindful Way through Stress. He frequently pops up in newspapers, magazines and on radio shows.

Based in London, he runs workshops and speaks at conferences all over the world and uses this program to show others how to teach mindfulness, too.

Shamash has also co-founded the world's first Museum of Happiness in London.

He has had the honour and privilege of training with the father of ‘Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction’, Jon Kabat-Zinn PhD  through the Center for Mindfulness in Massachusetts, United States. He has also trained extensively with the Centre of Mindfulness at Bangor University in Wales. And he's attended many retreats with his favourite teacher, Ajahn Brahm.

Forget Mindfulness.  We need Kindfulness.

After a period of intense work, Shamash found that mindfulness alone didn't recharge him. He came across a teaching by Buddhist teacher Ajahn Brahm, and the concept of Kindfulness was born. Kindfulness is now his biggest passion.

"If mindfulness is practiced without lots of kindness, it's missing something vital. If you're just more aware of your stress, or anxiety or depression, that alone won't help. You need to be kind to your emotions. You need to forgiving of your mistakes. Mindfulness tells you want's going on. Kindfulness heals."

Thank you, Shamash, for your great support in this journey. And the content was AMAZING!

10 weeks back I could not imagine myself as a mindfulness teacher but this program gave me the confidence and support I was looking for.

Shamash's Story
How life lead him to Mindfulness teaching

“As a kid I was really into science. I loved making robots and fiddling with chemistry sets. It was no surprise that I went to university to study chemical engineering – to the delight of my parents. It was almost as if my life was already mapped out for me."

Searching for meaning

One evening in his first year of university, Shamash found himself talking to a friend who was into spirituality.

“We were out looking at the stars and my friend started talking about how much order there was in the universe. Something in me clicked - I suddenly knew there was more to life than just randomness and science.”

After that, his well-mapped out career path began to unravel.

It’s safe to say Shamash didn’t exactly give the job his all.

“At the end of the month when I was expecting to get paid, it turned out I actually owed them money due to the three-hour lunch breaks I’d been taking every day. I knew I was following the wrong path, but didn’t have a clue what I should be doing instead.”
Scientist by day, philosopher by night

Back at university for another term, Shamash saw a poster on the underground advertising the School of Practical Philosophy with the Socrates quote: ‘the unexamined life is not worth living’.

“I signed up for an evening course and the very first session was a life-changing moment for me. Finally I felt that people were talking about all the stuff I’d been thinking about.”

Shamash threw himself into mindfulness and meditation with a passion. He even started running his own workshops at the philosophy school, all while (half-heartedly) working on his degree during the day.

It was then Shamash decided to become a teacher.

“There was a careers’ fair at my university and they asked who wanted to be a teacher. I was the only one who put my hand up out of a massive cohort of 100 people, as everyone was going into banking or engineering.”

To friends and family, it seemed like a crazy move. But to Shamash it made perfect sense.

“I only wanted to be a teacher so I could work in this particular school - the secondary school connected to the School of Philosophy. Called the St James School, the children do mindfulness meditation every day and have a philosophy class once a week. Luckily, after a stressful year teacher training, they offered me a job.”
Something missing

Shamash loved teaching at the school, but still felt he hadn't really found his true calling.

"It really was the perfect job as it combined all of my passions. I taught the children science, and as a form teacher I also ran their daily meditation and weekly philosophy classes. But what I really enjoyed was coaching to the students one-to one, as I could see what a difference it made. to them."

In fact, he enjoyed life coaching so much, Shamash set up his own life coaching group for adults, which was part of a wider organisation called ‘Life Clubs’.  And it was here something interesting happened.

“While I was at another Life Club group, we did a little visualisation. You had to imagine yourself going up into space and landing in your ideal life. I did the exercise and in my dream life, people were coming to my home and I was teaching them mindfulness. Before that, I’d never realised how important mindfulness was to me. This was what I should be doing.”

Amazingly within six months, that visualisation had come true when Shamash started the London Mindfulness and Meditation meet-up group from his own home.

When Mindfulness for Dummies was released, Shamash had been a secondary school teacher for ten years.

“I didn’t have a clue if the book would be a success or not, but I knew I had to quit and be a mindfulness teacher full-time. It felt like it would be too painful not to do what I really wanted.”

Luckily for him, Mindfulness for Dummies did very well. More books followed, people from all over the world started asking him to train them in how to teach mindfulness, and his great passion finally became his job.

“I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else now. Once you discover this incredible way of transforming your own inner state of mind, you just want to share it with others so that they can do it, too."

I found the 'Teach Mindfulness' course to be both an informative and fun learning environment. Shamash takes the time to include everybody's learning needs, and delivers the training in a simple but thorough manner. I would definitely recommend taking this course to widen your understanding of Mindfulness and to deepen your own practice. As a student, I had to make the journey, but Shamash defiantly had all the right maps!
- Deborah Williamson
I would recommend the course to those of you who have personally enjoyed the benefits of Mindfulness in your own lives and want to be able to pass this onto others. Overall, I wanted to feel confident with my own understanding of Mindfulness so that I could deliver it to others. I felt I needed to establish the underlying principles of a mindfulness course. This was all achieved, especially through my own practices from the course. The true peace you can find through this course is untold.
- Lyn Matthews
My expectations were high as I had read about Shamash before enrolling on the course and also I had the fantastic opportunity to hear him talk on Mrs Mindfulness's summit. I got to meet some fantastic people, I learnt and discovered so much about myself and others. It also brought me insight, compassion and kindness. It truly was a fantastic course, I learnt loads, but most of all enjoyed Shamash's humour and positivity. Thank you Shamash for your teachings!
