Summary

The Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor is the largest and oldest mindfulness teacher training organisation in the UK, and have been training people to teach mindfulness-based courses for the last 15 years. We were the first programme in the world to offer a Masters in mindfulness-based approaches and strive to be the best. Our students often comment about our supportive and experiential learning environment, and develop a close and supportive community of learning as they progress through the course.

The staff at CMRP are active researchers in the field of mindfulness. A recent example is a seminal paper called “What defines mindfulness-based programmes? The Warp and the Weft.”

Gain a Masters degree in Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses - This Masters will provide full training to be a mindfulness teacher, and you gain a Masters level qualification plus the Certificate of Competence in Mindfulness teacher training – this represents the highest level of teacher training in the UK and is a highly sought after certificate.

  • This route takes between four to five years to complete, it is up to you at what rate you progress through the Masters.

  • There are four compulsory modules (Foundation, Teaching 1, Teaching 2, and Mindfulness Teacher Project).
