Mindfulness Teacher Training


“This course came at just the right time for me - part way through my first year of teaching which I was finding very overwhelming. Calm, Clear Creative provided me with a tool box and supportive group in which to learn from. Not only did this help me personally but I know that my students have also benefited hugely from me being more calm in the classroom but also being able to use the tools themselves during class and at home! I've had parents thank me for sharing my knowledge -knowledge that was only made possible by being part of such a fantastic, open and supportive group. Thank you once again for making it possible! By far the best PD I have ever received!”

The Doctors Motueka were awarded the National Care for our Community award for initiating Mindfulness within our local schools, our successful initiation was led by Dr Richard Fuller and Jaime Howell from Opening Minds.

The aim was to provide teachers and their pupils with an additional toolkit for dealing with the stresses and challenges of everyday life that can affect concentration, behaviour and emotional wellbeing, using simple mindfulness techniques and games. A mode of attention characterised by openness, acceptance and an enhanced ability to respond to the present moment. Being mindful allows for a clearer understanding of how thoughts and emotions impact on our health and quality of life.

Voices of the teachers…


“On a personal level, mindful practise has helped me to cope with the huge amount of stress I have in my job! It has been amazing to find something that really has helped me feel more grounded, calm and also something that I can teach my students that will support them. Having the sessions with Jamie and other teachers has been invaluable.”

“I cannot believe the energy I had for my work and the clarity of mind to just type and be confident with what I was writing. I am attributing this to my amazing weekend and my newly calm and focused mind. This was truly an unexpected bonus.”
— Words of an Associate Principal who attended the weekend training.
