30-Hr Mindfulness Training with Erin Lee Henshaw


The Mind Body Project has been running mindfulness programs in the US and China since 2015. Recently, we have been asked to help others learn to teach these programs, and we think that’s a great idea. We can’t wait to get a group of like-minded people together to explore science-backed solutions for personal growth and applied practice. Here’s a bit more about our 30-hr Mindfulness Facilitator training in Beijing, China. www.themindbodyproject.com

Why?O Over the past 50 years Western culture has dictated that we work in chairs and prioritize information flowing into our frontal lobes and see our emotional responses as a hindrance to “achievement.” We have grown accustomed to learning from experts instead of a more experiential teaching model. Fortunately, the neuroscience-backed field of mindfulness reminds us of what we are missing: authentic teachers, emotional intelligence and whole-body learning. As part of this program with The Mind Body Project we will explore how to integrate traditional standards of achievement with whole-person facilitation and learning.

Upon completion of 30 classroom hours, each participant will leave with the skills and confidence to authentically lead introductory (Level 1) mindfulness programs or integrate these teachings with facilitation/leadership practices in their current field.

How? Participants from all backgrounds are welcome to join. In the past we have hosted teachers, facilitators, corporate professionals, parents, etc. In order to apply for the training you must have experience with the following:

  1. Two plus years personal mindfulness or self-reflective practice

  2. Two plus years teaching experience (alternative or non-traditional is great)

  3. Read the book: Search Inside Yourself OR The Whole Brain Child

  4. Taken the course “Fundamentals of Mindfulness” by Mindful Schools or an equivalent
