We are aware that an in-depth MBI training process requires a commitment of time and money. We have ensured that our pathway is financially comparable to other equivalent courses offering MBI training in the world, and of equal standard. We are part of a worldwide network of teachers committed to high quality training in the MBIs.
On this page we have listed all the costs involved up front. Please note that the costs below are a summary of all the aspects of training required to develop competencies and qualities over the course of the training including conceptual work, experiential training, retreats, supervision and assessment at certification. Trainees are free to undertake the training in a flexible time frame that supports their own learning needs, financial considerations and context.

Financial assistance with supervision
Due to the generosity of a past trainee, a limited amount of funding is available to trainees who require financial assistance in order to progress through the training pathway. To make the program as accessible and diverse as possible, funding will be distributed in the form of fee help with supervision for two students per year.
After completing the Intensive, you will be sent information about the criteria for applying for financial assistance with the costs of supervision. Accepted applicants will receive notification of the amount of supervision aid available to them.
- If you withdraw two months before the event start date you will be refunded less your non-refundable $500 deposit.
- If you withdraw between one and two months before the start date, you will be refunded fees less $1500
- If you withdraw one month or less before the start date, no refunds will be offered.
However, if a substitute person can be found so that MTIA is not impacted financially there will be a refund less the initial deposit of $500.
No refunds will be issued one month before the start of training except in extenuating circumstances and at MTI's discretion.
Notice of cancellation must be provided to MTIA via email and will be confirmed via reply email. MTIA cannot accept responsibility for correspondence that is delayed or for failure of delivery.
In the unlikely event the training is cancelled by the organisers, registration fees will be fully refunded. No liability will be accepted for travel, accommodation or other costs / expenses incurred by participants.
