Introduction: This cross-border and cross-cultural training does not intend to impose a western style of Mindful Mediation on another culture. The content of this training emulsifies with the cultural background and language of the student and allows him or her to become a unique professional. In this way, I am able to offer you the only worldwide achievable training that truly respects and works with global diversity.  If you feel that all this is true and highly valuable, than you may understand that to become a successful and effective mediator requires you to explore Mindful Mediation’s inner logic. A certain level of self-awareness and awareness regarding the environment you are living in or you are getting in touch with professionally ought be created.

Personal Statement: I believe that each of us should open her- / himself in order learn a very important lesson, namely that Mindful Mediation is also a process of healing others and of healing the society. We should try to raise the awareness of this potential skill that lies within each of us.I do not want you to study thousands of pages and endless concepts and models to be kept in mind. I want you to properly understand what the core of Mindful Mediation is, and to be able to truly work with the few topics that I will introduce to you. It will be more about self-reflection instead of enlarging the quantity of topics to be studied. The clue is the proper personal understanding of what mediation may be on a very individual basis and how it can be developed while including all the diversity that life offers. This is the true secret of my mediation, what I later on called, Mindful Mediation. This training concept grants all necessary space for you to create your own conceptual understanding of mediation. What means that ‘my mediation’ turns into ‘your mediation’ without injecting any sort of dogma to your mind. Therefore, this course will introduce you to self-reflection, deep listening, critical thinking, and wise speaking. Personally, I wish that this content will serve you and your environment at its best.

Structure and Content: The curriculum combines innovative perspectives on the acquisition and the application of knowledge. The innovative online format prepares candidates for the national and international job market. Candidates will be invited to participate in our growing network of students, alumni, and experts to exchange opinions and information on global issues beyond the scope of the three to six months study program. The outstanding benefit of our programme is the fact that our students do not only study the basics, but also get a deep knowledge of alternative dispute resolution in general. Hereby we enable our students to act as successful future professionals. Due to the preamble on Peace Education, our students become conflict consultants and trainers for conflict resolution at the same time. Topics that this training deals with: Mindfulness in Mediation, Applied Mindful Mediation, Analyzing and detecting Conflict, Interpersonal Crisis Communication, Critical Thinking – From Theory to Practice.
