Six-Week Introductory Training in Mindfulness (SIT)
ONLINE WORKSHOP WITH CERTIFICATION
6, 13, 20, 27 February, 6 and 13 March 2021
Elissa Ballard and Laila Dajani
Duration: 2×6 hours
This six-week training is comprised of authentic, secular Mindfulness teachings and methods, for those looking to develop or deepen a Mindfulness practice. A consistent Mindfulness practice develops our self-awareness, fosters presence, intuitive and empathic communication, helps us to manage anxiety and stress, and cultivates compassion for ourselves and others; quieting our inner critic. The sequencing of sessions progress through essential areas used to cultivate mindful attention and heart-centered investigation. Each session will include talks on the different areas of Mindfulness, guided practice, dyads (exploration of themes in pairs), and group discussion. Throughout the training, participants are expected to practice at home and will receive guided meditations and mentorship and support from the trainers.
Upon completion of the training, participants receive a certificate from the Mindfulness Training Institute, accredited by the Mindfulness Teachers Association. This certificate also satisfies the pre-requisite requirements for the Mindfulness In Schools curriculum trainings for teachers.
“There is no one right way to teach mindfulness. It functions best when the teacher is experimenting with using his or her own life as a laboratory for exploring and deepening the practice of mindfulness.” John Kabat-Zinn
