Mindfulness Teachers at Centre for Mindfulness Ireland

“I would like to introduce the CFMI Associates trained in MBSR at the Center for Mindfulness, University for Massachusetts Medical School.  They are highly qualified and experienced mindfulness teachers offering MBSR and other mindfulness Programmes in locations around Ireland.  Mindfulness has spread around the world exponentially since Jon Kabat-Zinn developed his Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Programme almost 40 years ago.  We are very fortunate here in Ireland to now have mindfulness teachers trained to the highest standards and who hold true to the integrity and ethical standards that are a hallmark of the essence of this work.  The CFMI Associates form a core group of MBSR teachers who are delivering mindfulness in many different areas of health care and society.”
