A strong ethical framework underpins mindfulness teaching. International best practice dictates that teachers of mindfulness honour, embody and uphold an ethical code, detailed below.
This Code of Ethics and Conduct aims to provide guidance and clarity to mindfulness teachers in relation to values and behaviours expected when interacting with members of the public, their class participants and fellow members of the mindfulness teaching profession. In addition, this code aims to provide protection to the public engaging with the mindfulness teaching community.
Members of the MTAI undertake to comply fully with this Code of Ethics and Conduct. When complaints of misconduct arise, members will be accountable to the complaints and grievance procedure as outlined in the MTAI Constitution.
