These are the key foundations for the teaching of mindfulness-based programmes. All subsequent training development rests on them.
To ensure plenty of opportunity for small group practice and reflection the group size will be limited.

- Awareness of Breath and Body
- Body Scan Meditation
- Mindful Movement, Standing and Seated
- Open Awareness Meditation
- Inquiry Workshops and Practice
LEARNING TO TEACH THE MINDFULNESS CORE PRACTICES -
Regarding teaching practice, skills are practised on peers with feedback from trainers (Teach-backs). Every afternoon you will be given the opportunity of teaching a 20-minute version of the MBSR core practice that was explored during the morning session. To safely support your development these Teach-backs will be in small groups with peer feedback and also you will also be assessed during the course by Bodhin and the team following the MBI-TAC guidelines for MBSR Teachers (Mindfulness-based Intervention Teaching Assessment Criteria). At the end of the module, you will also have an opportunity to discuss your next development steps.
TESTIMONIAL: Lauren Alvarez
I recently completed TT1 at Mindful Academy Solterreno. From the moment I started the course, I felt supported and encouraged. Bodhin led a well-paced and designed course and we were given the tools to maximize our learning both personally and professionally. The retreat center itself is run so well, with details thoughtfully included to ensure participants feel comfortable. I look forward to returning for TT2!
