About the Instructor

Dr Itai Ivtzan is a positive psychology professor and a teacher of mindfulness meditation. He is passionate about the combination of psychology and spirituality. He is convinced that, if we befriend both psychology and spirituality, and succeed in introducing them into our lives, we will all become superheroes, and gain super-strengths of awareness, courage, resilience, and compassion. Isn’t this an amazing prospect? Itai is confident that mindfulness meditation has the power to change individuals – in fact, whole societies – for the better. Accordingly, he has been investing much time in writing books about it, teaching it, and training mindfulness teachers.

Who Is the Course for?

The Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Training Certificate enables individuals to become qualified meditation instructors. It is a highly practical course that has been designed to offer you the knowledge and experience you need to be a competent teacher of meditation. The course is ideal for individuals already practising meditation or another yogic discipline, qualified yoga and pilates teachers, alternative therapists, life coaches, health professionals, counsellors, and others who want to expand their practice or career to include meditation teaching, theory and methods. Many people join the training course, even though they do not intend to teach, but simply to deepen their practice and knowledge of meditation. This course would enable you to obtain a solid foundation of daily practice so that you could enjoy the many benefits of meditation.

Course Materials

The training course includes 36 videos, 13 downloadable audio files, 25 different exercises, and a variety of downloadable handouts. These materials are divided into 30 teaching sessions, each session incorporates videos, exercises, and meditation practice. The sessions make a comprehensive course, and would offer you all that you need to deliver inspiring and responsible meditation sessions.

In addition, the course has its own facebook group, only for students and graduates of the meditation and mindfulness teacher training. As part of the group you will be able to ask questions, share meditation techniques, and discuss challenges or insights you had as part of your meditation practice and teaching.

Course Modules

The course includes three modules:

  • Theoretical knowledge (Module 1)
  • Personal experience and practice (Module 2)
  • Teaching others both theory and practice of meditation (Module 3)

1. Theoretical and Scientific Background and Benefits of Meditation

Meditation can have a far-reaching impact on your life. It facilitates a deeper feeling of peace and calm, while at the same time allowing you to engage with yourself at deeper levels. Additionally, meditation has been scientifically researched, and the results have clearly shown that the practice has important benefits. According to research, meditation increases psychological wellbeing factors such as acceptance, meaning, happiness and compassion on the one hand, and reduces the levels of stress, anxiety and depression on the other hand. This module will provide you with the knowledge and understanding surrounding meditation, including concepts such as “Presence”, “Authentic Self”, “Enlightenment” and “Awareness”.

2. Personal Practice of Meditation

As teaching meditation begins with a personal experience of it, this teacher training course emphasises personal practice, alongside the teaching of theory and exercises. You will be trained in a variety of meditation techniques in order to have an intimate and subjective experience of different meditation-based exercises. The list of meditation techniques you will learn as part of this module includes Intention Meditation, Breathing Meditation, Walking Meditation, Smiling Meditation, Body-Scan Meditation, Loving-Kindness Meditation, 1-Minute Meditation, and many more. This course would enable you to psychologically and spiritually grow, while engaging with these meditation techniques.

3. Practical Knowledge of Teaching Meditation

As you gain knowledge about meditation, and learn the experience of meditation, you will realise how you could offer others a similar experience of expansion. By engaging with the materials on a theoretical level (module 1) and practical level (module 2), you will realise how to apply the techniques you have learnt so that you could teach others. This module will provide you with the theoretical and practical tools that would assist you in teaching others.

The three modules are not being taught separately; instead, the course continuously moves from one module to another, offering some theory, followed by practice and a teaching session, seamlessly integrating the three modules into a coherent experience. These three learning outcomes (and corresponding modules) offer a process of transformation. As part of this transformation, you will be able to gradually build higher levels of presence – being able to bring your awareness to the “Here and Now”. Meditation invites us to become more present in our everyday life. This course will offer you an opportunity to engage with meditation in a way that will allow that presence to penetrate whatever you are doing during the day. It will shift your mind from one that is constantly busy and scattered to a mind that is focused and connected to the moment. Finally, the course would enable you to share and teach this knowledge; there is great pleasure in inviting others to grow and transform.

Accreditation & Certification

The Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher Training Course has been approved and validated by the CMA (Complementary Medical Association). As the course is recognised by the CMA, you can get insured for the meditation sessions with your clients / students / groups. The course will also provide you with 15 CPD (Continuous Professional Development) course credits.

Once you have completed the course you will receive a formal certificate indicating you are a certified meditation and mindfulness teacher.


Training Exercises (are there any exams in this training?)

During the training course, you will complete different exercises to deepen your knowledge and understanding of meditation. You will also teach meditation sessions to someone you choose to work with (friend/family/client) and then write a summary of your experiences and insights following the teaching. These are informal assessments, which will not be marked; they are simply an opportunity for you to deepen the impact of the training.

Course Duration

There are 30 teaching sessions as part of this training, each session includes a variety of videos, exercises, audio files, and handouts. When you join the course the first session will be open for you to study and practice. Every day one more teaching session will open (session 2 in day 2, session 3 in day 3, session 4 in day 4, etc.) until day 30 when the final session is released. Therefore, the minimum completion time for this training course is 30 days.

You could study the course as an intensive course and complete it in 30 days – or you could take your time and complete it in a few months, as you wish. Whatever you choose, the course will be open for you for 12 months, so you have plenty of time to complete it at any pace that feels right for you.
