Meditation Teacher Training Courses from the British School of Meditation 

The British School of Meditation has been established to train teachers in meditation techniques to meet the growing demand for highly trained and accredited meditation teachers throughout the UK including: the Midlands, South West, Wales, North West, North East, London and the South East.

This exciting course has been developed with you in mind, providing you with expert training accredited by Ascentis. This qualification is recognised nationally by the Government agency, OFQUAL. 

One of the real benefits of training with the British School of Meditation is that the course is fully externally accredited by Ascentis, which has merged with our former accrediting body, AptEd.

The course consists of five days of face to face training at a centre near you. We have seven centres at the moment and will be opening an eighth next year. As well as the training days  you have to complete about 50 hours of written work. The course is a Level Three course, the equivalent of A level standard.

 Call Mary Pearson, CEO of BSoM on 01242 530684 for an informal chat or more information - office hours:9-5, Monday-Friday.

The fee for the course is £900.00. This is paid in instalments:  £150.00 deposit when you enrol, followed by two payments of £375.00. 

Thanks so very much for the exceptional BSoM teacher training you delivered! All aspects of the course, from the amazing venue and wonderfully positive atmosphere to the extremely high quality of the teaching and materials, contributed to a wonderful learning experience! The course itself was also very well planned, and I feel ready to offer my services as a meditation teacher, with an array of meditation techniques, good working knowledge of the science behind the health and wellness it brings, an understanding of the history and traditions and excellent advice on how to set up and run my own business!  I'm truly grateful that you've turned my passion into my profession: thank you from the bottom of my heart! (Jo Hemnant student  MTTcourse Sept - November 2015)


'An excellent and comprehensive meditation teaching course that provided all the theoretical, experiential and practical learning I needed to start teaching meditation. Lesson and business planning elements are included and I felt safe and confident with the tutors. A hugely enjoyable and useful course that I would recommend to any experienced meditator wanting to learn how to teach.'  Claire Cunden, BSoM Teacher 

Meditation

is this the answer to many of the problems of modern day life? Meditate and be calm could be a mantra for modern day living. Meditation and Mindfulness are becoming more and more popular as people look for ways to become more resilient.

“Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It is meditation.”     The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonanthan Haidt
