Facilitating Mindfulness

UCLA Mindful is currently undergoing restructuring of our public programming.  Unfortunately, the Training in Mindfulness Facilitation (TMF) will not take place in 2024.

Please join our mailing list for future updates on UCLA Mindful teacher training programs. 

Since 2011, UCLA Mindful has offered a year-long training program in the art of facilitating mindfulness meditation. This program provides training, support, and supervision to those wishing to incorporate mindfulness into their occupation or to share mindfulness with individuals, groups, communities, or institutions.


The program consists of four 4-day in-person practicums and additional meetings by phone, online, and in-person. Successful completion of this program provides a document of completion as a Trained Mindfulness Facilitator from the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, now UCLA Mindful. Faculty to include Diana WinstonMarvin G. Belzer PhDSusan Smalley PhD, and Daniel Siegel MD among others..
