Questions About Curriculum & Certificate Requirements

Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

Hi everyone! I just watched the replay of this week's Q&A and realized there are some questions lingering about the self-assessment rubric, perhaps certificate requirements as well. This thread will be dedicated to asking and answering any questions related to curriculum & certification.

Also - you can now find a helpful FAQ document on the Certification Requisites page! https://teach.mindfulnessexercises.com/mindfulness-meditation-teacher-certification/

You are also free to email me or send a private message if you prefer.

Hi Alan! Great question. This is a mistake and the names need to be changed in the workbook. I will ask someone on the tech side of things to do this. However, the mindful eating exercises you can explore are located at the link below, starting at pg. 26:

In last Wednesday's call, the question came up about whether or not any practices one leads during the new Tuesday support calls can count towards the certification requirements. It's been decided that one teaching per type of meditation can be led during the support calls. In other words, of the 21 meditations you need to lead before submitting for certification, up to seven can be from the support calls - one per type of meditation.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.

Hi,

For the certification, do we need to submit a completed electronic version of the workbook with all of the exercises filled in? I printed out the workbook but wanted to make sure that I complete it electronically if I need to submit it to show the exercises are complete. Thank you!

Hi Carole,

Great question! Most people have submitted a completed electronic copy of the workbook. However, you can also fill it out by hand, have it scanned (into a single document in the correct order), and send it to us electronically that way. So long as we are able to read the handwriting when it is scanned, this will suffice. 

I hope this helps!

Hi,

For the daily meditation tracking, are we only allowed to use the meditations linked in the document? Or are we able to use others to count towards our hours?

Thank you!

Hi Carole,

You can certainly use other meditation practices, so long as they are mindfulness-based. Self-guided mindfulness meditation can be included as well.

The 7 meditations that we are required to guide 3 x, are there scripts for these? I thought I saw something at one point but cannot find them anymore. 

Hi Beverly,  I believe they are in the appendix of the workbook.

Hey Beverly,

Yes, they are in the appendix - https://teach.mindfulnessexercises.com/course/appendix/

You do not have to be completely on-script for these teachings. When it comes to submitting audio/video for certification, we'd like to see you speaking in your own words rather than strictly from a script. But you can certainly use these to guide you!
