1 Day Workshop

with Makeda McKenzie
Location Online
Date 13/07/2024
Time 09:00 - 17:00 BST


This 1- Day workshop is for fully trained mindfulness teachers (i.e. those who have completed a 12 month structured face to face or live online training programme). If you have not trained as a teacher, please apply for our 12 month teacher training programme or our 10 day Train to Introduce Mindfulness course.

The training provides training in how to teach the Introducing Mindfulness (IM) course and associated practices.

As an addition to the MBCT family of courses, the Introducing Mindfulness course offers a brief taste of mindfulness practice and theory in a format intended to be accessible to anyone new to mindfulness. It can be offered as a formal programme of 3 one-hour sessions, or as drop-ins, taster and introductory sessions.

IMPORTANT: You do not need to complete this workshop if you are currently on the OMF 12-month cohort training route.

The OMF provides Confirmation of Attendance letters to all participants who attend and take part in all aspects of 100% of the training event, including break out rooms, with their camera on.

What will I do on this course?

We will explore the key intentions, structure and outline of the IM course. There will be discussions about where the IM course sits within the scope of broader mindfulness teaching – the similarities, differences, and any special considerations needed when offering shorter sessions to work colleagues, or other communities within which you intend to offer the course.

    About the Teacher

    Makeda McKenzie

    Based in Trinidad & Tobago, I am a former human resource professional and the present-day founder and principal consultant of the Caribbean Mindfulness Institute (CMI). After my own experience with workplace burnout and chronic stress, and having benefited tremendously from the mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) programme and my ongoing personal practice, I decided to use my many years of corporate experience in training and development to create meaningful and practical workplace mindfulness programmes that help people stress less, focus more, and feel their best with mindfulness and meditation.
