Prepare

Attend a 2-Day SIY Course (Mandatory Prerequisite)

All participants accepted into the Teacher Training program are required to attend our 2-day SIY program prior to attending Teacher Training. This ensures all participants have experienced the SIY program and have the common foundational experience needed to learn how to teach SIY.

Please see this list of 2-day SIY programs that we offer globally, and sign up for one (you will need to sign up for the “SIY” program, and not the “1-day SIY”). Alternatively, for both San Francisco and Berlin you can come before the start of the first Teacher Training session and participate in a 2-day SIY Program especially for Teacher Training participants. We offer this option for individuals that do not have an international Public Program near where they live. 

Pre-Work

Approximately 6 weeks before Session 1 we will send you pre-work consisting of various reading materials, a self-evaluation, journaling prompts, videos and other resources so you can begin your learning journey. Please budget 5-6 hours weekly to complete the pre-work prior to attending Session 1.

Experience

Session 1

This is an in-person 5-day session that is deeply experiential. The training focuses on our seven principles, the SIY experience and skills, depth of mindfulness practice, all the while conveying what it means to embody the SIY teacher role.

The SIY story arc

  • How to lead meditations
  • The role of science
  • The role of story
  • How to hold space and answer questions

The session helps you to understand the overall structure and flow of the SIY program and sets you up for success during the interim period before Session 2.

Learn Content

Independent Practice

This is an independent practice module with no in-person sessions to attend. During this four month period of time you will complete 8-10 hours of weekly homework assignments designed to help you learn to teach and begin making SIY your own.

Some of the work includes reading books and articles, watching videos, journaling, participating in virtual pod meetings to share learnings and provide mutual support, and practice co-teaching SIY to a low-stakes/safe audience of your choosing. You will also study the SIY content and must pass an SIY content exam prior to attending Session 2. There is a lot to do during this period, so please budget your time accordingly. 

Location 

There are no in-person sessions for this module. You will study, practice teach, and take the content test independently.

Practice Teaching

Session 2

This is an in-person 3-day session that is dedicated exclusively to practice teaching, receiving peer feedback, and receiving expert guidance from existing certified teachers. The goals of this session are to help you become more adept at teaching the SIY program so that it starts to feel natural and prepare you for Module 5. Multiple locations are offered for this session.

Refine Teaching

Independent Practice

This is an independent practice module with no in-person sessions to attend. You will continue practice co-teaching the entire SIY program a minimum of two times (or more if possible - we strongly encourage this).

Additionally, you will be paired with a coach with whom you will share video clips of you teaching SIY. You will provide a written reflection prior to each coaching Skype call, which supports you to process your experience and tailor the coaching call to what is of most value to you individually. There are two coaching Skype calls, each one is 45 minutes in length, and each call taking place only after you have completed a full day of teaching SIY. If you like, you are free to schedule additional calls with your coach at your own expense.

You are free to schedule your practice teaching and coaching calls at your convenience.  You must practice teach SIY at least twice and complete both of your coaching calls prior to submitting your materials to the certification committee (step 6). 

Location

There are no in-person sessions for this module. You will practice teach independently and have two coaching Skype calls.

Certification

Submit Your Materials

Once you have completed modules 1 - 5, you are eligible to submit your materials (including a video recording of you teaching SIY) to the Certification Panel for their review and decision to certify you as an SIY teacher.

The Panel is composed of senior SIYLI staff and Certified Teachers. Final certification will be based on: Embodiment, Presentation/Facilitation skills, and mastery of Content.

Location

There are no in-person sessions for this module. You will submit your materials electronically to the Certification Panel for their consideration.
