Level II: Teaching, Supervision and Certification


The most practical thing we can achieve in any kind of work is insight into what is happening inside of us as we do it.
The more familiar we are with our inner terrain, the more surefooted our teaching - and living – becomes.
~ Parker Palmer


Supervision of teaching work 

Supervision is not an added extra but a primary part of the training process. The process fosters precision and comprehensiveness in the teaching of mindfulness groups, and encourages an authentic exploration of unexamined habits and patterns that hinder effectiveness in teaching and living.

This in-depth process of support, guidance, exploratory dialogue and precise feedback will offer you the self-review skills and clarity about your own level of proficiency, which you can take forward as part of your life long learning as mindfulness teachers. The development of the following competencies based on the MBI-TAC will be supported:

  1. Coverage, pacing and organization of session curriculum
  2. Relational skills
  3. Embodiment of mindfulness
  4. Guiding mindfulness practices
  5. Conveying course themes through interactive inquiry and didactic teaching
  6. Management of group learning environment

At a minimum, you will complete 20 hours of supervision (pro-rata) in a group or individual supervision context.  For your first couple of rounds of teaching,  meeting weekly with your supervisor is recommended.  Many students will require more hours of supervision than this set minimum.  (Regular supervision - whether with a more senior teacher or in peer groups - is encouraged throughout one’s teaching career.)
