Course Syllabus and Dates

Mindfulness Now Accredited Teacher Training

Mindfulness is a scientifically evidenced approach to helping with many unwanted conditions, including anxiety, depression, stress and pain. Representing a convergence of ancient contemplative traditions, along with modern neuroscience, mindfulness is not considered to be a therapy, even though its effects are profoundly therapeutic. It is therefore taught or facilitated by a mindfulness teacher.
