London Meditation: Mindfulness Application Teacher Training (MATT)

quotation marks

I just wanted to send some words to thank you both for all of your wise teachings/coachings over the last 18 months.

My personal and professional practice have flourished this year. London Meditation have supported me with a constant source of inspiration and food for reflection.

The year has been far more challenging than I had imagined and yet even the most stressful moments have become a source of interest for me.

When I reflect back to those who I have worked with this year, it brings warmth to my heart to know that the seeds of awareness, curiosity and kindness are continuing to grow and be nurtured in their lives.

quotation marks

I often struggle with what feels like a conflict between the concepts and practice of ’work, business, corporate’ and the ’personal, mindful, inspirational, motivational’. Sometimes they merge into one, at others they remain compartmentalised. And this is the case whether I am participant/learner or the teacher.

You and your colleagues have managed to provide a totally professional, high quality, ’product’ in a world that values such things. The admin, the venue, the food, the teaching were all first class. I enjoyed and appreciated all that immensely.

However, what for me was really important is that this was grounded in a totally authentic, spiritual, wise, and learned context. We did indeed become a community for each of the days and with that, I am sure, contributed to the wellbeing of the world. For me, it provided mental, spiritual, and physical space at a time when I am, for the first time in years, almost grounded, almost at peace, but totally OK.

I still feel the calm. I have meditated. I now know that I need to give this to myself on a regular basis. And to weave it confidentially into everything that I do and learn – professionally.

quotation marks

A student went to his meditation teacher and said, "My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I’m constantly falling asleep. It’s just horrible!"

"It will pass," the teacher said matter-of-factly.

A week later, the student came back to his teacher. "My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It’s just wonderful!"

"It will pass," the teacher replied matter-of-factly.

Teacher Training

in Mindfulness Applications (MATT)

For many years, London Meditation has been a member of the
UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations.
With our experience over the years, it has become clear that there are a lot of different intentions behind why trainees undergo Mindfulness Teacher Training.

We love to support people on their personal pathway
in order to be able to share the fruits of mindfulness practice within their target group.

Therefore, we offer three different training opportunities.
You can take part in the first two training pathways separately, or you can combine all of them to get the Advanced Diploma in Mindfulness Coaching.

The three different training pathways fulfil different professional quality standards and recognition requirements (Association for Coaching, UK Network).

  1. Foundation
    - Interpersonal Mindfulness (IM)
    - AwarenessCoaching Foundation Training Course (ACFT)

  2. MBI EmbodimentProcess
    - MBSR & MBCT

  3. Accredited Advanced Diploma in (Mindfulness) Coach Training (AADCT)
    - Mindfulness Application (MA) CompetenceDevelopment Process (CD.P)

We encourage you to proceed through the training pathway(s) thoroughly and with honest commitment, allowing time to integrate your learning into your life, your teaching and coaching in accordance with the MBI:TAC.

If you would like to have an appointment with one of our Teacher Trainers,
please feel free to contact us and choose from the following options:

  • 15min Initial Conversation on the phone free of charge or
  • 50min Orientation Session (online or over the phone): GBP 60 incl. VAT

We look forward to being in contact with you.


Our 3 Training Pathways for Professionals

Foundation – IM & ACFT

If we want to support people in their process of personal growth, our interactions are fundamentally relational, whether in a One-to-One context or within a group. Therefore, we need to be personally present, while simultaneously ’feeling into’ the process of the client.

In our Interpersonal Mindfulness (IM) Intensive we develop a quality, which leads to being more fully present and caring with others and oneself.
In the AwarenessCoaching Foundation Training (ACFT) we apply this quality into a structured, client-oriented communication approach.

Both together are the foundational skill set of a Certified AwarenessCoach, ready to become a full Member of the Association for Coaching.

  • Interpersonal Mindfulness (IM) Intensive
    to practice the essential skills for Mindfulness Coaches.

  • AwarenessCoaching Foundation Training Course (ACFT)
    to become an AC-certified AwarenessCoach.

MBI EmbodimentProcess – MBSR & MBCT

This training is for people
who want to apply to be registered on the UK Listing of Mindfulness Teachers.

The drive to train more MBSR/MBCT professionals runs the risk of easily and inadvertently undermining the integrity, precision and long-term commitment required for the formation and ongoing development of competent, high-quality MBSR/MBCT facilitators.

The field of MBIs is developing at a fast pace. Training programmes need to respond to good practice issues to build integrity into these developments.

Within the MBI EmbodimentProcess we cover all of the ’key features’ in each domain, as named in the Mindfulness-based Interventions Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI:TAC):

  • Coverage, pacing and organisation of session curriculum
  • Relational skills
  • Embodiment of mindfulness
  • Guiding mindfulness practices
  • Conveying themes through interactive teaching
  • Holding the group learning environment

We want to train people
who feel the urge and have the willingness to share mindfulness with this integrity.
