Teaching Mindfulness in Non-Clinical Settings, based on 'Mindfulness: a Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World'.

This workshop is based upon the book Finding Peace in a Frantic World, by Mark Williams and Danny Penman. The course in this book runs over eight weeks and is presented in a self-help format but also works well as a curriculum for taught courses. It is intended primarily for non-clinical populations and is taught in classes of 60-90 minutes. The course is taught by mindfulness-based teachers who have already completed a rigorous mindfulness-based training programme in Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction or Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy.

The workshop will explore what needs to be taken into consideration to teach a mindfulness course based on this book, so as to reduce the time commitment for participants and thus make mindfulness more accessible to the general public, student groups and work-place settings. 

This training day is for:

  • Fully trained mindfulness teachers who have completed a rigorous training programme and adhere to the Good Practice Guidelines (and ideally appear on the UK Listing)
  • or to those who are currently on one of the mindfulness-based teacher training programmes or pathways with the University of Exeter
