On the Mindfulness Champions Training you will learn to lead simple mindfulness meditation practices with competence and confidence, and to apply mindfulness in your work.

It isn’t a formal mindfulness teacher training, but it’s aimed at anyone who wants to lead mindfulness practices in their workplace, family, work with clients, or as a peer mentor.


You’ll get clear guidance in leading simple mindfulness practices, encouragement, and a chance to practice in a supportive environment. 

We'll also explore how you can work more mindfully and bring mindfulness into your workplace.

The focus is understanding the qualities that are encouraged through mindfulness practice, and learning to lead techniques and practices that support this.

The course will be led by Vishvapani Blomfield. He’s an author, broadcaster and advocate for mindfulness who has taught over 130 mindfulness courses and developed the Mindfulness Champions Training.

Feedback from Previous Participants

"I didn’t  think  four weeks ago that I’d feel this confident and empowered. The response from staff members has been overwhelming."

- Annette, NHS Consultant

"The course is practical and experiential with an appropriate amount of theory to support understanding. I found Vishvapani a very clear teacher with the knack of helping me to explore my experience in a kindly way."

- Jess

"When I became a Reflexologist, I noticed how many clients describe physical symptoms of stress and feel consumed with anxious thoughts. I was delighted to see Vishvapani offered a course aimed at exactly this.  I highly recommend the course to any complimentary therapists who want to gain confidence in sharing mindfulness with their clients."
