Learn to Teach Meditation and Mindfulness
How do you teach meditation to achieve the best outcomes? What techniques resonate most quickly with what sort of clients and audiences? Is there one size that fits all or as many techniques as there are individuals in your class?
How do you best introduce beginners to meditation without making meditation appear either too easy or too difficult? How many techniques should you teach? What is the purpose of the techniques you teach – just to relax the body and calm the mind or something more such as developing emotional intelligence and literacy?
Which techniques are tried and tested? Can you invent your own? How best can you determine what works and what does not for your clients or classes? How does teaching clients one-on-one differ from that with a small group or large class?
Are backgrounders and print outs or recordings of your chosen teaching techniques essential? What is required in a good teaching venue? How best to communicate with clients from the immense cultural diversity of Australian populations? And how exactly does gender matter?
This Learn to Teach course of six sessions gives you the answers to all of these questions and more for prospective teachers of the ancient art of meditation drawing on Kevin’s wealth of teaching experience since 2002 with thousands of clients in one on one sessions, small public classes and workplace workshops with high profile private and public sector organisations.
