The Mindfulness Teachers Association of Ireland (MTAI) is the professional body representing qualified teachers of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) 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. We support teacher development and professional and personal growth through supervision, ongoing training, connection with colleagues, attendance on retreats and so on.
Our mission in the 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.
The MTAI has drawn up guidelines for good practice and upholds these, is committed to the ethical foundations underpinning the teaching of MBSR and MBCT, and supports continuous professional development for mindfulness teachers. The MTAI is a member of the European Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches (EAMBA).
