The institute is now recruiting candidates who want to become certified MMFT trainers. Qualified applicants will have prior experience with mindfulness and have an ongoing daily practice. Candidates will also need to complete at least one silent ten-day retreat before becoming certified.
Interested candidates should be prepared for extended periods away from home. MMFT is offered at military installations around the country, and a standard training cycle runs three months. There will be limited opportunities to travel home during this training. For additional criteria and information on how to apply, click here.
The creator of the MMFT program, Elizabeth Stanley, was recently a speaker at the Creating a Mindful Society conference in New York. The streaming of the entire conference is now available to watch (free). Click here to register.
