Embodying and sharing the power of Mindfulness & Compassion

This 80hr Online Certified 'Embodying and Teaching Mindfulness & Compassion' Training is for those who feel drawn to sharing the power of mindfulness and compassion practices to others, or simply wanting to deepen their practice to shore-up the foundations of their own inner refuge.  


Students often share how profoundly mindfulness and compassion are transforming their lives and then they ask: "What is the pathway to becoming a teacher myself? I love this path I want to share it."

In this livestream training Deborah Berryman shares the qualities, personal experiences and attitudes that are important in those drawn to teaching meditation, as well as the challenges and pitfalls that may arise.

Course Overview:
This foundational course has two distinct modules. While these inevitably overlap, it’s useful to keep a focus on ourselves as practitioners, as the most powerful tool of teaching is the embodiment of mindfulness and compassion

Module 1: Embodying the practice : growing in effectiveness and understanding

•    exploring the roots of meditation practice and its journey into modern culture
•    the neuroscience of mindfulness and compassion and their relationship with resilience
•    exploring the truth and myths of mindfulness and heart practices
•    experiencing the transformative medicine of mindfulness and self-compassion by deepening our own practice
•    working with resistance, to the practice, the moment and with life
•    personal qualities that contribute to being a good teacher,
•    bringing formal and informal practices into our daily life

Module 2: The art of holding space
•    different motivations that draw people to mindfulness meditation,
•    what mindfulness and compassion teachers actually teach
•    the power of our words and silence
•    teaching topics, guiding practices and facilitating groups

•    the art of teaching from curriculum and emergence
•    taking care of ourselves while holding space for others
•    special considerations for inclusivity and trauma 
•    ever-increasing opportunities for teaching in a world 

I will draw from over a decade of experience in training others to teach. You’ll hear inspiring stories, examples and reflections that allow you to use this learning as a way to grow for both you and your students.

About the Teacher

Deborah Berryman is a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher and Mentor, and Senior Yoga Teacher known for her infectious curiosity for the practice and for life. Drawing on nearly 20yrs of teaching experience, she is a personal mission to share the benefits of delving into these practices in community.  By offering these experiences, the space for healing connection opens up to empower others - not to change themselves, but to be fully seen in all their glory.  When we change the way we see ourselves and each other, we can affect some sort of change or perspective that makes our world better.

Since completing her initial training in 2005, she went on to train as a Mindfulness MBSR / MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy) Teacher with Bangor University, Centre for Mindfulness UK. She then trained further as a Mindfulness Mentor with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield - going on to work for Jack and Tara at Cloud Sangha as a Mindfulness Teacher and Mentor. ​ She's also studied the work of Kristen Neff and Chris Gerber (Mindful Self-Compassion MSC) and attends regular silent retreats to deepen her own practice. With a keen interest in working with trauma and addiction, she's also trained with Ralf Marzen, Dr Gabor Mate and Richard Schwartz to better understand how yoga, meditation and compassion can support this.


Deborah will share her training, experience and personal insights, exploring the power of this insight practice in creating emotional freedom.  You can read more about the teacher here
