Mindfulness Practitioners Course 

What can you expect from this Course

In this course it is important to realise right from the beginning that there are two aspects that we are going to share in this practitioner’s course from the founders of Natura Institute

– There is the Julie’s aspect (as a Life Coach, Reader of the Akashic Records, Meditation Teacher, Spiritual Coach and Energetic Healer) which is Mindfulness Meditation

– and there is Colin’s Aspect (as a Mindfulness Coach- Business Strategist- Entrepreneur, CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) therapist and Business Mentor) which is Mindfulness as a Life Practice.

Both aspects of this bring together a life with meaning and purpose, not leaving anything to chance. This course finalizes in Personal and Spiritual growth in all aspects of our being.

Mindfulness is a transformative mental state of awareness, openness and focus.  The regular practise of mindfulness will reduce stress, increase self-awareness, enhance emotional intelligence and enable us to handle painful thoughts, feelings, memories and urges far more effectively.

This Mindfulness Practitioner course is available so that anyone, anywhere, can learn to develop, practise and teach mindfulness in a personal, social or professional capacity. Mindfulness training and applied private practice is the basis for all personal and ongoing professional development.

Our Mindfulness Practitioner’s Course is practically structured around two perspectives incorporating three different domains of learning; direct teaching, theoretical frameworks and guided self-reflection. Each of these domains supports each other working in unison to provide you with an efficient online learning experience.

Throughout this comprehensive training, you will gain a grounded understanding of the psychology that underpins mindfulness; it’s philosophical foundations, the history of mindfulness alongside a broad range of today’s most relevant approaches, styles and techniques.

Upon completion of the course, you will understand:

  • The factors that make for a successful and grounded Mindfulness practice.
  • How Mindfulness can be applied in a personal or professional context.
  • Mindfulness Meditation and the benefits in its practice.
  • What mindfulness models can be used to empower your and\or your clients.
  • How to deepen the connection between your head, heart and intuition.
  • The primary thought-patterns that negate emotional wellbeing and wholeness.
  • The common limiting beliefs that negate emotional wellbeing and wholeness.
  • The core principles that underpin effective mindfulness coaching and inquiry.
  • How to facilitate transformative change in other people conversationally.
  • And much more.

You will be fascinated to discover the principles of mindfulness, and how it can be applied in everyday life to live in the present and become more aware of how you experience life. By residing in the here and now, you will recognise how to experience simple pleasures in a meaningful way that promotes a deeper sense of contentment.

This Mindfulness Practitioner Course focuses specifically on your self-awareness, of not only yourself but of your day-to-day relationships and how you perceive the world. This comprehensive online training course is 10 Modules opening weekly and will provide everything you need to develop a grounded understanding of everything that you need to know for becoming a competent and confident Mindfulness Practitioner. Once all ten modules are open you have unlimited access to the content.

By the end of the course, you will understand the most modern ideologies and techniques that top Mindfulness Practitioners use to facilitate positive change, in both themselves and the clients whom they serve. Upon completion of the course, you will receive your Mindfulness Master Practitioner’s Certificate from Natura Institute.
