MBSR Foundations – 9 Day Programme

The Brown Mindfulness Center, Brown University School of Public Health, Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.A  will be offering a MBSR Foundations 9 Day Training Programme in January 2019.

The MBSR Fundamentals 9 Day Programme includes:

  • Participate in the Tools for Living Mindfully Programme a 5-day intensive residential programme that provides similar content to the 8-week MBSR class
  • Participate in a 4-day intensive professional training,

The residential format for the MBSR Foundations training combines the five-day Tools for Living Mindfully: Being Awake in Your Life with a four-day seminar training for those interested in becoming teachers.

The importance of directly experiencing the dynamics, rigor, structure and fluidity of the MBSR curriculum in situ, cannot be overemphasised. Through a trainee’s own direct experience of the five-day Tools for Living Mindfully programme, the personal and multi-faceted nature of the MBSR programme is revealed. This personal experience directly fosters the early learning of the participant-trainee.

Participant-trainees will begin to apply their learning by guiding peers in a short meditation practice session and to express, creatively, how the required readings are integrated into their experience of the Tools for Living Mindfully programme.

Towards the end of the course, participant-trainees will receive guidance and support for offering short introductory programs or workshops based on the MBSR curriculum. These offerings form part of the requirement for application to The Teacher Advancement Intensive (TAI), the second step of the formal training for teaching MBSR.
