There is a large body of evidence to show that
regular use of meditation and relaxation
techniques help to reduce stress and anxiety and
promote a good work/life balance.
This course concentrates on the practicalities
and logistics of running meditation classes;
presentation skills, dealing with challenging
class members, suitable class themes, planning
classes and courses, advertising and so on. This
means it is useful to you whether your approach
to mediation is secular or spiritual. It also
means you have skills which can be generalised
to running other types of group.
It enables you to:
-be aware of the history and traditions of
-have an understanding of how meditation can be
used for stress reduction, relaxation and
-be able to plan, organise and market meditation

insurance, ethics, health and safety
-be aware of a variety of secular or
non-denominational meditative techniques
-know a variety of subjects which can be used

(Please note - the course focuses on the
practicalities of designing, organising and
presenting classes. We do include some basic
information but the course assumes you already
have some familiarity with meditation,
self-hypnosis or similar techniques. If in doubt
please contact the organiser.)
Accreditation: The course is validated by the
ACCPH, and registered with the CMA.
How it works:
You receive a comprehensive set of notes, and a
Teacher's Handbook giving you plenty of ideas
and techniques to use in classes.
You also receive a workbook which you complete
as you work through the notes and submit to us
for feedback when it's complete.
You submit a ‘case study’ which involves
organising and running a meditation class for at
least four people and lasting for at least an
hour. You can hold your class face-to-face or
We wouldn’t feel right issuing a teaching-based
certificate without seeing you teach, so we also
ask for a five-minute presentation which can be
completed live by Skype or Zoom or recorded and
sent to us with your workbook.
You can start this home study course at any time
and there is no time limit on completing it.
