"I am very impressed with the British School of Meditation’s course, for several reasons. The content of the course was extensive and has given me the ability to go and run meditation courses confidently and with an in depth understanding of all the fundamental aspects of meditation. The professionalism of both the school and the individual teacher was to a very high standard. The school has clearly put a lot of effort into developing a brilliant course and it was delivered in an inspiring, interesting and varied way in terms of teaching methods. Catherine Banks as a teacher is a definite asset to the school and her knowledge, support, encouragement and all round kindness and compassion is a testimonial to what meditation can do for you, she clearly “practices what she preaches” as the saying goes. I would 100% recommend this course to anyone wishes to learn about meditation, as their ethos, professionalism, passion and knowledge is exemplary" Janice, Student, North West Course 2019
"There are a few people that we meet in the world that leave one feeling truly richer for knowing them. Pauline is such a person. I found the BSOM teacher training course to be varied, extremely interesting and based on sound scientific principles enabling me to feel confident to go out into the world and teach a diverse population about meditation. Pauline is and has been a great support and guide, very caring and genuinely wanting all her students to do well and succeed. I would highly recommend the BSOM teacher training course and Pauline’s supervision to any student who would like to take their practice to the next level, either as a practitioner or like me a teacher of meditation.Thank you also for a fantastic time. I will never forget the days we shared all together-it has been truly an experience of a lifetime. I have placed my “faith “ pebble on my dressing table with my other crystals and will think of you often and be forever grateful for giving me the confidence , knowledge and skills to teach my passion of meditation". Joanne Mullen. November 2018
Thanks so very much for the exceptional BSoM teacher training you delivered! All aspects of the course, from the amazing venue and wonderfully positive atmosphere to the extremely high quality of the teaching and materials, contributed to a wonderful learning experience! The course itself was also very well planned, and I feel ready to offer my services as a meditation teacher, with an array of meditation techniques, good working knowledge of the science behind the health and wellness it brings, an understanding of the history and traditions and excellent advice on how to set up and run my own business! I'm truly grateful that you've turned my passion into my profession: thank you from the bottom of my heart! (Jo Hemnant student MTT course Sept - November 2015).
I’m so glad I chose to train as a meditation teacher with the British School of Meditation. This really is a course that has thought of everything – I left having gained all the practical skills and theoretical knowledge I needed to confidently teach mediation and I find myself still referring back to the course manuals to this day. The training programme, delivered through both face-to-face training and associated course work, is not only comprehensive and well-structured, but also hugely enjoyable. My trainer, Simon Fry, was professional and knowledgeable, teaching from his extensive personal experience of a meditation practice and running a meditation business. I can’t recommend it highly enough! June 2017
'An excellent and comprehensive meditation teaching course that provided all the theoretical, experiential and practical learning I needed to start teaching meditation. Lesson and business planning elements are included and I felt safe and confident with the tutors. A hugely enjoyable and useful course that I would recommend to any experienced meditator wanting to learn how to teach.' Claire Cunden, BSoM Teacher. 2013
