Become a Meditation Leader with Skillful Mind
Do you wish to share meditation with your community?
Skillful Mind have the philosophy that all meditation is good for the planet, and the more people practising the better. For that, however, we need Leaders.
That is why Skillful MIND is now offering a Meditation Leaders program for you to become a meditation leader in your own community - fully supported by Skillful Mind.
Perhaps you already work in a role where teaching meditation to others would be of enormous benefit. You can of course just read out guided meditations from a book - nothing wrong with that! But if you would like to empower yourself with a deeper understanding of meditation, so that you can teach meditation more powerfully and at a deeper level, then joining the Skillful Mind team may be for you!
- To have a number of weekly "Refresh" meditation sessions around Adelaide, and even interstate
- To provide access to teachings, training, retreats, events and ongoing support from Peter Radcliffe and Skillful Mind Team
- To spread the benefits of meditation to communities everywhere, and enhance peoples lives
So, how do you become a Skillful Mind Meditation Leader?
1. Familiarise yourself with the Technique teachings of meditation - (either on-line or in retreat)
If you are going to be a Meditation Leader under the Skillful Mind banner we believe you should know the core teachings that Skillful Mind follow. These teachings will be the basis of the session plans provided in your weekly groups. Click here to see upcoming meditation retreat dates.

This ensures all our Leaders have a good understanding of the principles of the meditation they'll be sharing. Don't worry - information is provided, and help is available if required! On successful completion you will receive a Skillful MIND certificate.
3. Review the teachings on how to be a great group leader
These teachings become unlocked when you join us as a leaser and you will need to familiarise yourself with them so you can put your best foot forward when you start your very first group. If you are in Adelaide, there are also one day workshops available where we will run you through the business of running your own group, and what's worked best for Peter over the years he's been teaching meditation. It will also give you a chance to meet other fellow leaders, and practise with them. Click here to see upcoming workshop dates

We will give you advice on finding a venue that suits you, and in our Leaders Membership you will be provided with all the session plans and resources you need to share meditation in your community. We'll even create a advertising page just for you on our website, and take payments for you that will go direct to your bank account or Paypal.

What Our Leaders Say About The Program
'When I found out about Skillful MIND’s Leaders Program being in the midst of a career change I signed up instantly. The Leaders Workshop takes you through step by step, and requires you to prepare a session for assessment - live. It may sound daunting, but if you truly want to learn about meditation and leading meditation groups, Peter & Mardi show you what it takes - and that you can do it!
'I now lead 3 meditation sessions per week and the participants' breakthroughs are so encouraging. I’m feeling satisfied with my new lifestyle. Some people may choose this as an option for extra-curricular activity outside of their work hours and I think that will also enhance their life the way it has mine. Either way, you are tapping into an area which is often neglected in today's modern, busy lifestyle.'
Heather, Refresh Leader Victor Harbor
'I was on a journey of healing that lead me to SkillfulMind, to become a SkillfulMind Meditation Leader. I feel this has made me a committed, stronger meditator.
I have much joy assisting my participants learning Peter's techniques, and also committing to the weekly practice(some daily), learning the skills to control the mind bringing peace and happiness to their lives.
'Another benefit for me is I'm able to also promote my Breathwork to my meditation students, which I am also very passionate about.'
Verity, Refresh Leader Warradale
'Being a Skillful Mind Refresh Leader is a really positive experience. It has allowed me to share my passion for meditation and join a like-minded community of people. It has also assisted me to develop and extend my meditation practice. Coordinating the classes with another leader has allowed for flexibility in case we are away or not available but when we are both present, it allows for me to be a student and participate in meditation.
'Participating as a Skillful Mind Refresh Leader is beginning to open other opportunities within the health and wellness sector. It is positive to remember that we are sharing meditation with the wider community.'
