The Certificate and Advanced Certificate in Guiding and Teaching Meditation provide meditation teacher training that qualifies you to run meditation groups and teach meditation classes, workshops or retreats. You will learn a powerful variety of meditation techniques and develop the trust and confidence required to create and guide original meditations in any environment. You will also develop your communication and group facilitation skills. There is opportunity within the course to develop your own daily meditation practise and deepen your meditation skills.
Upon successful completion of the Certificate or Advanced Certificate in Guiding and Teaching Meditation you will be eligible for provisional membership of the Meditation Association of Australia. Graduates then have 3 years to reach full membership by completing our Diploma. Membership of the International Institute of Complimentary Therapists is also available. Both these associations provide graduates with access to professional insurance services.
In this meditation teacher training the emphasis is on a practical experience that helps you develop confidence and grace when facilitating guided meditation for others. You are also nurtured in understanding and practicing a variety of meditation techniques which you can then teach others. These include, breathing, relaxation, guided imagery, insight meditation, mindfulness, sound meditation and moving meditation. By the end of the course, you will be able to guide and teach meditation in many different settings, guiding original, high quality meditations that YOU have written and that you can tailor to suit any group or need.
You will be able to create meditations that are suitable for corporate groups, relaxation and stress management, meditation therapy, community groups, children and support groups. (Your choice of electives allow you to focus your study on particular groups.) You will also have the confidence and know-how to do deliver your meditations without a script if you wish to.
The course is suitable for psychologists, counsellors, teachers, hypnotherapists, fitness instructors, personal trainers, yoga teachers, social workers, massage therapists, group facilitators, team leaders and is also suitable for people who want to guide their family and friends through meditation.
The course has a holistic focus and learning style. No discussion of meditation would be complete without exploring the benefits of meditation for spiritual and personal growth, however this course is non-denominational.
