Mindfulness Matters Australia is pleased to offer the Teach .b course. We will demonstrate the lessons in real-time, explore the pedagogy of the .b curriculum, and share our experience of teaching .b in the classroom. Participants will also have the opportunity to practise teaching the key exercises to one another, in order to leave feeling confident and empowered to teach the curriculum to young people (aged 11-18: upper primary and secondary school).
PLEASE NOTE: The Teach .b course involves training to teach the curriculum to pupils, but not to provide any form of teacher training for adults (i.e. training others to teach the .b course). For more details about this course, please click here.

Most training days will start with a period of mindfulness sitting at 9.00am and conclude at 5.30pm; registration will begin at 9.30am on Monday morning and our final day will conclude by 3:00 pm. Please note participants who want full certification must attend each lesson and stay through our final session.
