This training will be offered online.
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 health care 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. Learn More.

” I would highly recommend this after people had done their intensive teacher training. I found it an invaluable time to become more familiar, and find more ease and confidence, and to digest and assimilate all the many parts of the curriculum. Learning from each other over the 10 weeks was also very helpful, supporting creativity and inspiration. I think a much deeper learning was possible during the 10-week period than in 1 short week.”
“I thought Anne and Susan did a marvelous job and were a terrific complement to each other. I learned a lot from their demeanor and embodiment of the teachings. Unfailingly supportive, gentle, and encouraging, their presence was and is for me an inspiration for what this path has to offer as a life path.”
“I thought the course structure, preparing the 3 practice sessions weekly gave excellent momentum and breaking into 2 Zoom groups supported way more practice than would otherwise have been possible. Individual feedback given to each practitioner by Anne and Susan was in my view incisive and extremely helpful for us all to witness.”
“10 weeks seemed the perfect length for the class and the Zoom format worked well and managed (with Anne and Susan’s careful design of the class format) to support the development of an intimacy among the participates, particularly poignant as we were from all over the world.”
