MBSR Teacher Training Practicum (TTP)

Inquiry Workshop April 2024

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.

MBSR TTI: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher Training Intensive April 2023

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 6-day teacher training intensive will provide health care professionals and educators the opportunity to study and experience the foundational underpinnings, mindfulness meditations and specific exercises that are the framework of the MBSR program. The themes, rationales, intention and practice skills of each MBSR class session will be reviewed, discussed and practiced. Participant screening guidelines will be covered, and samples of client handouts will be provided.
