I joined the School of Meditation in Holland Park in 1984 where I learnt to practice the Vedic technique of meditation. That first experience of connecting with the silence and stillness that lies deep within all of us was one of the most profound experiences I have ever had. I found that meditation gave me a framework which enabled me to assess and reflect on my lifestyle and make much needed changes. I also discovered that the beauty of meditation practise was not just the sitting in silence for 40 minutes, as part of the sessions at the SoM, but also the way it directed me to be more mindful in day to day living, to truly experience each and every activity of the day and strive to 'just be in the moment'.
In 2013, I enrolled on a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course. It reaffirmed the joy and feeling of wellbeing that a mindful way of living brings. I then started to become interested in teaching meditation and found the BSoM. Once again meditation was to change the course of my life. The course was truly inspirational. It is exceptionally well planned and comprehensive and I can honestly say I enjoyed every moment - even the coursework! It was important for me that I found a reputable course which gave me a recognised qualification. The BSoM offer of expert training accredited by The Open College Network South West Region Ltd, (trading as AptEd) with a qualification recognised nationally by the Government agency, OFQUAL. This was exactly what I was looking for. I was extremely proud when I gained my diploma with a distinction.
I originally trained as a teacher over twenty years ago. My specialist subject and passion is PSHE (Personal Social Health Education). I then went on to become a consultant and trainer working with schools, supporting them to develop a whole school approach to the health and wellbeing of both pupils and staff. For me being a meditation teacher draws on all of the skills and knowledge I have gained over the years as a teacher and trainer and brings me full circle back to meditation.
I was absolutely delighted to be approached by BSoM and be offered the opportunity to train as a trainer and become accredited to teach the Meditation Teacher Training Course (also nationally recognised by OFQUAL and accredited with Ascentis) and to become the BSoM Centre for the South East. I am really looking forward to sharing my experience and providing training and support to others wishing to become an accredited Meditation Teacher.
The course is fully accredited by Ascentis, and has Ofqual recognition. Make it your choice of training provider and join the many BSoM qualified teachers throughout the UK training people in meditation techniques.
