Mindfulness Association Teacher Training

If you want to teach mindfulness, we recommend following the Mindfulness Association’s course structure. Below we have attached a video clearly explaining the path to becoming a Mindfulness Teacher.



This begins with the Level 1: Being Present course which we teach at our Samye Foundation Wales centre in Cardiff. You can find out when our next Level 1 course is here


We also teach the next stage which is the  Level 2: Responding with Compassion course, which you’ll need to do if you would like to teach the 8 week Compassion Based Living Course.  You can find out when our next course is here


“Mindfulness Association Training Pathway”




Our teaching Levels 1 and 2 meet the mindfulness teacher training pathway requirements of the UK Good Practice Guidelines for Teachers (www.mindfulnessteachersuk.org.uk). 


“Teaching has gone deeper and sensitively whereby greater understanding has been achieved” (Course participant)


The courses take place at our dedicated mindfulness centre in Cardiff. Facilitated by tutors Lorraine Harris and Anthony Harris who are experienced  mindfulness teachers. Lorraine is a member of the UK Mindfulness Teachers Network as well as a Lead Tutor for the Mindfulness Association. She has also trained with Rob Nairn.
