Advanced Training For Mindful Educators: Mentorship- January 2020


Introductory Course Price: $425.00 (New Price will increase in 2020).

About This Course:

Our Advanced Training For Mindful Educators course is mentorship-based programming to support graduates of our Foundations Training For Mindful Educators course. Graduates will already have received personal training in Mindfulness Based Social Emotional Learning (MBSEL) via their Foundations course. They will also have received lifetime access to all of the resources they need to teach MBSEL to the children they work with.

This Advanced course supports our graduates as they create a plan for MBSEL in their school, place of work, family and/or personal life. Working closely with their mentor - Mindfulness First Program Director Emmanuelle Giumelli - they will take the time to reflect on their new knowledge, habits and practices developed during their Foundations course. Participants will think about their dreams for how they wish to implement and teach MBSEL in their life and work. With 8 weekly themes, lessons and support material, participants will be guided towards a written plan and the beginnings of implementation. The overarching theme of this course is for graduates to feel supported in their new MBSEL life-habits

The Course Includes:

- Weekly themes to support the creation of your personal MBSEL plan.

- Themed, weekly video guidance sessions with Emmanuelle, to include a weekly MBSEL practice to support your MBSEL habits, practice and growth.

- Weekly mindful movement videos to support your MBSEL habits, practices and growth.

- Continued learning opportunities: new ideas and inspirations to help develop your plan and implementation. Learning opportunities include lessons in "Circle Work" and "Cultural Representation".

- Permanent access to course and all future updates.

Review from Maureen, a Public School Pre-K Teacher in Arizona:
The Mindfulness Educators Advanced Training was so beneficial to me individually and as a classroom teacher. The course gave me the opportunity to methodically put my practice into my classroom and to further develop my personal practice as a student of Mindfulness. The instructors at Mindfulness First guide you through a personalized, self created capstone on adaption and implementation in a supportive and caring format. You will be glad to have this experience to further you personal growth toward you chosen goals.”

Review from Audra, a Charter Elementary School Teacher in Arizona:
"I truly enjoyed my Advanced Training for Mindful Educators Course. The instructors were wonderful; easily accessible, kind and respectful, supportive and encouraging. My favorite part of the class was the community circle/zoom calls, where we were able to meet and connect with other mindful educators and discuss topics relevant to our learning. I also really enjoyed creating my vision board. This course helped me to connect and grow my own mindfulness practice. I am grateful for the support in guiding me towards my next steps in my mindfulness journey. Thank you!

Review from Kit, a private Yoga and Mindfulness teacher who provides services in Arizona schools:
“I participated in the Foundations Training for Mindful Educators in the Winter of 2019. The program was the best experience I have ever had. It is deeply needed in our school system. When we teach children social emotional skills; such as self-regulation, self- awareness we help children help themselves. I continued on to take the Advanced Training for Mindful Educators. I highly recommend taking the Advanced training. The course provided a ton of one-on-one support, mentorship and goal implementation. It helped me turn my dream of working with youth in trauma into a clear and attainable vision and helped me implement it into a realistic and attainable experience."
