Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an empirically-supported 8-week psycho-educational group intervention that teaches mindfulness meditation as a health intervention. Created by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979, MBSR offers participants the possibility to develop a different relationship to stress resulting from chronic physical and psychological illnesses. Research outcomes have demonstrated positive improvements in physical and psychological symptoms, as well as changes in health attitudes and behaviors. This Online 10-week MBSR TTP will provide healthcare professionals and educators the opportunity to practice teaching the curriculum to prepare themselves for teaching the first 8-week MBSR class. The themes, rationales, intention and practice skills of each MBSR class session will be reviewed, discussed and practiced.

This 2-session workshop will explore the ever evolving and unfolding; art and practice of what we call Inquiry. So often people come to their mentors with a question: how do I do Inquiry?” There is one word that pops out- the word- do. Implying the idea that there is a “doing“ to inquiry. We will explore how we can move from our doing mode to truly being with another person in the moment. This is where we will start building awareness of the scaffolding of inquiry and how we move to what is alive in the moment in the relational field.
