The Factor-Intewash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto is launching four new certificate programs in mindfulness…

Applied Mindfulness Meditation

Grounded in comparative literatures of humanities and social science, traditional and contemplative medicines, the arts and sciences, education theory and practice, business and ethics, this program is intended to teach mindfulness meditation practices with a focus on its various applications within a wide range of personal and professional domains.

Whether you are interested in:

  • delving into a historical perspective of mindfulness meditation
  • learning psychotherapeutic strategies
  • enabling learning through contemplative education
  • enhancing your mentorship and/or teaching abilities
  • enhancing focus through contemplative arts
  • encouraging mind and body health
  • developing healthier work environments and communities
  • becoming a mindful leader
  • studying the neuro-ethics of mindfulness

this certificate program will foster the development of your practice, knowledge, skills, and sensitivities.

There are four levels of training offered in this program:

  1. Level A: Foundations in Applied Mindfulness Meditation
  2. Level B: Applied Mindfulness Meditation Specialist
  3. Level C: Methodological Approaches to Mindfulness & Mindfulness Meditation
  4. Level D: Special Lectures & Webinars

Certificates are issued upon perfect attendance and completion of all assignments, if applicable, in Levels A, B and C. Any absence may result in the withholding of the certificate. No certificate is issued for Level D.

No experience in Mindfulness Meditation is required to enrol in this program, but we recommend that learners with and without a practice in mindfulness meditation take at least two Level A modules before entering into other Levels. Level A modules provide a foundation on which to build on theory and practice. Levels A and B can be completed concurrently, but the Level B certificate will not be issued until the Level A certificate requirements have been completed.

There is no prerequisite for Level C and D modules.
