Certificate Course


The World needs an army of Mindfulness Mentors.

“You cannot transmit wisdom and insight to another person. The seed is already there. A good teacher touches the seed, allowing it to wake up, to sprout, and to grow.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Are you aware of the incredible change that is happening in the world today? You won’t hear much about it from corporate media because they seem to keep focus on bad news and fear mongering. You won’t hear much about it from governments or religions because they seem to keep focus on power and control. Choose not to buy into the fear tactics of old control structures that are crumbling away. Rather, keep your focus on the new world that we are all co-creating. A world full of love, joy, peace, and wellbeing.

The good news in the world today comes from within. Take a short break and be still. Be alone with yourself in silence and connect deeply with who you truly are underneath it all. Help bring forth the new paradigm of harmony and transformation that is emerging in the world today. Be part of the solution for the epidemic of mental suffering in these troubled times. We can make a difference… one person at a time! Search your heart and enrol if you would like to learn the skills necessary to be an effective and intuitive Mindfulness Mentor or Peer Support Worker/Volunteer.

What is a Mindfulness Mentor? Let’s break it up. The practice of mindfulness is noticing that you have been distracted, most likely with thoughts about the past or future, and then bringing your awareness back to the present moment over and over again, until it becomes an embedded way of being. Mentor means a wise and trusted teacher, counselor or coach. This includes parents and carers! My course is also excellent for peer workers with lived experience of mental disorder. It is also perfect for anyone who wants to build rock solid relationships, with themselves, their loved ones, employees or team. If this sounds like you, then I encourage you to enrol today. A mindful mentor lives a mindful life!

What I am offering is three 1-to-1 sessions. Sessions are 90 minutes, you have the option to pay for each session as you go or pay now to save $150. Simply click the PayPal button below. AU$450 AU$300 (Approx.US$182; CAD$258; GBP147; EUR168). The sessions are done at your pace with practice work to do in between. You are guaranteed a new perspective with the mentoring skills that you learn. Pay cash (local), bank transfer within Australia (e-mail for details) or simply click this PayPal button.

When you enrol in Keys to Mindfulness Mentoring, I will send a copy of my book Mindful Actions (mailed worldwide) and contact you via email to schedule our first session. (In my ‘quiet room’ or via video link such as zoom) You will have the Keys to be a Mindfulness Mentor by the second session and encouraged to practice your skills. You will also receive my PDF called Mindful Insights Mentoring which has 52 chapters covering all aspects of developing a true mindful practice. The third session will be scheduled when YOU are ready to demonstrate your skills as a mindfulness mentor. Go at your own pace… you will know when it is time to be a Master of Mindfulness. I will then send your well deserved certificate and you will have the option to be listed in ‘Find a Mindfulness Mentor’ and become part of our fast growing organisation… mindfullyMAD.org (mindfully Making A Difference)

At this point I could tell you about the many benefits of being a Mindfulness Mentor or ask some fellow mentors to write glowing recommendations about this course. I am no marketing guru but I am passionate about my purpose. I am excited about devoting my time to teaching people the keys that will enable them to teach others how to establish a mindful practice.

Please feel welcome to request an obligation free chat about this course. Simply send an email to: mindfulmad@gmail.com or phone 0418 864 162 (International +61 418 864 162)

  11. Hi John,
    I have come from a very dark pit. My psychologist uses Mindfulness as part of her therapy and I found it fantastic. It has taken a few times of doing it as I said I was in a very dark hole and the climb was hard but I got out, sometimes I feel it creeping up on me again so I practice it daily. I would like to discuss some things first as I really want to help people find their happy place and become a mentor or even better a teacher of mindfulness for adults and children.
    Would be grateful to chat soon.
