Mindfulness Without Borders Facilitator Training

The benefits of social/emotional learning (SEL) cannot be denied. In fact, studies have shown that students who have SEL as part of their curriculum are higher achieving, better behaved and have more positive relationships with the adults in their lives. This course is designed for educators, social workers, health professionals, and/or anyone else interested in integrating Social and Emotional Learning and secular mindfulness in their individual school or workplace environments.  Participants will have garnered the skills and knowledge needed to successfully implement Mindfulness Without Borders’ (MWB) Mindfulness Ambassadors Council (MAC), in both youth and adult populations.

Learners are eligible to receive a Mindfulness Ambassador Council Program Facilitator certification from Mindfulness without Borders.
