Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Advanced Teacher Training Intensive for MBSR Teachers




This advanced training intensive is for MBSR and MBCT teachers who wish to deepen their understanding of universal principles for teaching mindfulness-based interventions. As such, the focus for this training is less about teaching to the structure of MBSR and MBCT and more about intentionally embodying mindful presence and strengthening the facilitation of mindful inquiry. Inquiry is both a practice and a skill.

As a practice, it is the ability to convey the philosophic underpinnings of mindfulness with an integrity that invites our participants to embark on a journey of discovery about the relevance of mindfulness practice as an approach for reducing stress and for the prevention of depression relapse.

As a skill, mindful inquiry demonstrates a willingness to embody the spirit of mindfulness with an oral congruity of where that understanding rests. The training is highly interactive and highlights the necessity of personal practice as a platform from which to teach.
