The importance of an experienced mindfulness teacher

Although mindfulness can be deceptively simple initially, there are layers and layers, which can reveal themselves over years.  It is often described as a journey for a lifetime.  Learnings and insights arise over time and become more and more embodied.  Challenges and queries also come up along the way.  A mindfulness teacher who has been practising meditation for a good time will have experienced ups and downs, discoveries and insights

I first began meditating in 2005. Today, I am as passionate about and fascinated in this subject as ever. I continue to test it out and to inquire. I also adhere to appropriate professional standards and training – see below.

“Mindfulness is a subtle practice and can only be taught well by people with considerable personal experience.”The Mindful Nation report, Oct 15

My professional experience and training

In addition to my long-standing personal practice, I have attended mindfulness teacher training at Bangor University.  Also, I am a registered teacher of mindfulness on the listing of The UK Network of Mindfulness-Based Teacher Training Organisations.  This means that I have demonstrated through an assessment process that I adhere to the UK Good Practice Guidelines for mindfulness teachers, which includes that:

  • I am suitably trained
  • I am committed to continuous professional development
  • I hold appropriate insurance
  • I receive supervision for my teaching
  • I attend annual silent meditation retreats
