Accredited Meditation Teacher Training:
The Active Balance Meditation Teacher Training is a course open to anyone who would like to become a Meditation Teacher, as well as anyone who simply wants to deepen their understanding and practice of meditation as a Meditation Practitioner.
The course is accredited as a Post Diploma Course with the Independent Yoga Network. The course is also Externally Accredited and Verified with the Complementary Medical Association. Successful completion of this accredited course will provide you with a certificate as a Meditation Teacher, and, if joining the register of the CMA, will entitle you to use the letter MCMA after your name.
The course will run over five Sundays. Each training day will start at 9.30 am and finish at 3.30 pm. For the course, you need to wear comfortable clothing to allow the meditation practice, a meditation blanket or shawl, pen and paper, and optionally a meditation cushion, or other props. Chairs will be available at the Centre. More information when you enrol on the course.
The course is open to anyone with an interest in meditation, regardless of the level of fitness and flexibility. We recommend a minimum of four months of experience in practising meditation, either at a class or at home before joining this course, although we find that even complete beginners can take part and enjoy the benefits of the training.
The cost of the course will cover your participation at the course, your manual, the test and certificate. You will receive a list of recommended books you can buy in order to help you better assimilate the meditation practices.
Each of the first four days will be dedicated to the practical study of one specific type of meditation:
Core Meditation Techniques
The fifth day is the Celebration of Learning day (we use this term instead of the exam term) for which participants will prepare a written presentation and deliver a meditation session of their choice from the techniques we studied in detail at the course.
The course is aimed at anyone who will be happy to participate in what could be considered a meditation retreat at the beautiful location at Rosewell Shiatsu Centre, in East Midlands, UK. Successful candidates will also receive the Active Balance Meditation Teacher Certificate; this will allow participants to join professional associations and to gain insurance if they want to teach meditation to the public.
The aim of the course is to present the format of Holistic Meditation as an effective means to deliver a meditation class, and will also allow students to apply the Holistic Meditation approach to various meditation techniques, either energy-based (core meditation, chakra meditation) or mind-based (Dharana techniques: Trataka, Sambhavi Mudra, Ekagrata as well as Mindfulness).
Whilst deeply immersed in the practical aspects of meditation, the course will also offer a lot of theoretical information with regards to the past and modern history of meditation practices, professional standards for a meditation teacher, client assessment and evaluation, professional boundaries, ethical marketing, taxation, applicable legislation, music licencing, class management and other practicalities for the role of a meditation teacher. The course aims to empower participants to be able to teach safely and effectively meditation techniques to the public, as well as the ability to practice different forms of meditation in an informed manner.
