Online MBCL Foundation Course for mindfulness teachers and other professionals

Friday 12 – Sunday 14 November 2021

Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living, a deepening programme following MBSR or MBCT – an online MBCL Foundation Course for mindfulness teachers and other professionals, with founding teacher Frits Koster. 

A heartfelt thank you to the teachers and our community of meditators who facilitated or joined our online meditation sessions over the past 15 months, building a sense of togetherness and support during a difficult period. Our final online session will be on Friday June 25th followed by a break for July and August, returning again in September. Please subscribe to our Newsletter for an update on the resumption of online meditations and on what’s happening in the MTAI. You can also email us at info@mtai.ie.

“We were delighted that the Mindfulness Teachers Association of Ireland supported National Volunteering Week 2020. Qualified mindfulness practitioner, Dominic Cogan, delivered a beautiful session to volunteers combining meditation, mindfulness and practical tips and advice. It was great to be able to offer such a thoughtful session to volunteers and encourage them to focus on their own well-being, all thanks to the support of MTAI.”

"I want to thank you and your colleagues in MTAI for all your wonderful sessions you did for the past 4 months. I could count on one hand the number I missed. They were a huge support to me and continue to be during these strange times.
I can't thank you enough."

"Dear Mindfulness Teachers
This thank you is overdue. For me, bookending my day with our online gatherings has been one of the best things to come out of COVID. I think it is very generous of each of you to share your time and skill so consistently over the last few months - much appreciated.
Lovely to see the same faces day in day out - teachers and others - I feel I know you!
Presumably, things will change, but until then - my sincere thanks."
Una
"The sessions I managed to attend, and mindfulness in general have been my life raft during a spell of very bad back pain when I had to stop working."

Our mission in the Mindfulness Teachers Association of Ireland (MTAI) is to contribute to the public good; to endeavour, through the teaching of mindfulness, to foster human flourishing and to support the development of a more compassionate and inclusive society.

About the MTAI

The MTAI has drawn up guidelines for good practice and upholds these, is committed to the ethical foundations underpinning the teaching of Mindfulness-Based Interventions (MBIs), and supports continuous professional development for mindfulness teachers. The MTAI is a member of the European Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches (EAMBA).

The MTAI is the professional body representing qualified teachers of MBIs in Ireland.

We have been meeting and supporting mindfulness teachers for the last decade and were formally established as an organization in 2018. We are an independent non-profit organization run by mindfulness teachers who graduated from a range of different mindfulness teaching Institutions. Our standards for accreditation are designed to be fair and inclusive and to ensure an appropriate level of capacity for the mindfulness teacher. Our teachers introduce mindfulness in many settings such as businesses, schools, prisons, hospitals, community centres and not-profit organisations.

We support teacher development and professional and personal growth through supervision, ongoing training, connection with colleagues, attendance on retreats and so on.
