This course is for you if you want to:
Be a positive influence
Connect with like-minded people
Be a part of the solution
Be a centre of calm
Contribute to a more peaceful world

Before we go any further this course is for people who already meditate and have done so for some time.

The course is done via distance training. You have access to our online area that contains your course workbook, videos and exercises to do. You then complete a question and answer style written assignment and email it to us. We provide you with in depth feedback, and support you on your journey. Anne Hartley, our founder and the creator of this course, is available by phone or email if you need help.

Our Meditation Teacher course covers a broad range of subjects: obviously mindfulness and meditation, but we also include relaxation techniques, living by values, simple ways to change our state. The whole course is focused on teaching people to live a calm life.

We cover different styles of meditation, the benefits of these and how different meditations affect different portions of the brain.

And we also include a unit on meditation for children as several of our graduates are now teaching in schools.

You can join our mindfulness and meditation teacher course or, you can combine our meditation teacher training with our life coach training course to give you a broader range of skills.

Australian statistics show that at least one in three people are affected by stress. Mindfulness reduces stress, promotes calmness and enhances personal happiness. Being mindful can be life changing. Being Mindful can bring joy back into our lives.

Meditation aids attention, increases feelings of well being, supports calmness, increases intuition, supports goal achievement and feelings of inner peace. It changes the structure of our brains and increases our response to stress.

Mindfulness is becoming increasingly popular in the corporate world and some of our graduates are now teaching it in their workplace.

Testimonials

“This is the best college for learning Mindfulness and Meditation. The work is actively involving. The techniques are wide and varied. The support by Anne and others is unlimited, and the flexible style is great for busy people.

I have been a very successful Clinical Psychologist, Health and Wellbeing practitioner for 33 years… from working in the Psych Department at Prince of Wales Hospital, to Managing Tasmania’s Mental Health. So, I was very fussy when I decided to study Mindfulness and Meditation, for it’s Mind, Body and Soul benefits (including but not limited to CBT practice therapeutic interventions). I researched a great deal before settling on Hart Life Coaching as my College… and I was not disappointed.

This course and this College are excellent to study with, and I support their ongoing success.

Thank you Anne, for my wonderful learning journey.”

Katherine Winter, Psychologist

“I have recently completed the Mindfulness & Meditation teachers Course. I really enjoyed learning about the different ways to meditate and the long term benefits that it has on our health. Since completing the course I find myself teaching others what I have learnt through conversation, I truly believe in mindfulness and meditation as a means to sufferers from not only mental health issues but mostly from one’s own thoughts & inner conflicts. I highly recommend this course for those who want to learn more about understanding your own thoughts, where stress comes from, how to eliminate conflict within yourself, and ultimately how to be a better, healthier you and to do the same for others. Thanks Anne I loved the course & the way in which it is delivered.

I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Mindfulness and Meditation Certificate offered by  Hart Life Coaching. The content was interesting, thought provoking and covered a broad range of subjects. The resources provided were significant and useful especially when conducting sessions. The length of the assignments was manageable. Thank you.”

Maureen Meredith

I have absolutely loved the course and feel I have learnt so much and improved my own practice and life balance. I am looking forward to helping others in the area of mindfulness and meditation.
