How do I become a Modern Meditation teacher?

The beanddo teacher training course is divided into three parts. You can choose to enrol and complete each of the individual (in order) training stages, separately.

Part One – Making Happy Work™ is a comprehensive recorded online course and will serve as the Foundation for your teacher training

Part Two – Going Deeper is an engaging and detailed ‘live – streamed’ Advanced online course delivered at set times (you can also watch and download recordings if you miss a session).  Successful completion of Part Two will enable you teach Modern Meditation.

Our Advanced Level is for experienced individuals and will enable you to make significant shifts both personally and professionally in your life and work.  The Advanced level is also accredited with European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC)  — and will certify you with the EMCC at a Practitioner (EQA and EIA) level.

Read what past graduates say about the teacher training course

"Mick is an amazing teacher. Really accessible content and delivered with mastery. Superb experience, highly recommended."
"The beanddo meditation teacher training was perfect. I was looking to develop my meditation practice, dive deep into what meditation is and then hopefully share with my students following the training. I gained all of this and much, much more. The beanddo training is generous in providing lots of quality and accessible information and supporting tools. It is welcoming in its hospitality and creation of a sharing and supportive group ethos. Above all it has a most amazing teacher in Mick. Honest, supportive and a natural teacher, Mick's knowledge is vast and the way he imparts it with care, a clear connection to yoga and a gentle humour is invaluable. I now have a regular meditation practice, which connects through my daily life, I feel well equipped to teach meditation to my students and take my journey forward, thank you!"
