applying meditation in your professional life
This one-year training is for those people who wish to integrate meditation and mindfulness into their professional activities. The prerequisites are an interest in meditation or previous meditation experience.
The possibility of applying meditation or methods of mindfulness in your professional setting is also necessary.
Goals of the basic training
- a responsible attitude towards meditation within a professional context
- an awareness of the effects of meditation
- knowledge of philosophy and models necessary to explain meditation
- a personal meditation practice
- the capability to guide and explain meditation
- a positive attitude towards oneself and others

- 12 days of training – 3 x 1 days and 3 x 2 days of training + 3 x 1 day supervision in groups + 2×1 hour individual supervision per person.
- regular meditation with documentation about ones own practice and as well as guidance of small groups in meditation.
- 4 webinars with Dr. Peter Malinowski about meditation and science.
- 250 hours meditations-practice every year seems a fitting guideline to make you into a good meditationtrainer. Practice makes perfect. With 30 minutes meditation per day one manages to practice 180 hours per year. Together with small excercises within your work with e.g. 15 minutes one manages to create another 50 hours of experience. Whoever manages to include practice days within the year easily creates more hours and different perspectives of experience. All the will make you into a good trainer.
Beside the common trainings and supervisions the basic training involves the following mandatory elements:
- documentation of you guiding a practice session, either in written form, or preferred as audio or video recording
- preperation of content for following modules
- 2 h individual supervision
- have your personal diary for learning
- participation in retreats of different formats e.g. 3 x 4 days; 6 x 2 days; 4 x 3 days. Retreats deepen your own experience with meditation. The first year of the basic training is only the beginning. Human maturity needs time. Practicing meditation is a fundamental element in this process. In the future the Academy will offer its own retreats and will as well recommend partners of cooperation.
The basic training involves more then practice and theory. Beside individual meditation you excercise to guide others in meditation, to explain them meditation and to answer possible questions of your future customers. You learn to give and receive feedback and thus you are able to deepen your practice step by step. Additionally you reflect your own attitude, techniques and way of expression. We presume that participants take responsibility for their own developement and trust in the skill of selfregulation and unfolding ones potential.
