Fundamentals in Teaching MBSR: 7-Day Intensive is the first step in the pathway toward becoming a certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher through East Coast Mindfulness. This course is designed for people with an established practice and a desire to learn how to share the benefits of mindfulness with others. A commitment to maintaining a personal relationship with practice and to developing the skills necessary to offer the MBSR class in person are necessary. Participants must be willing to show up authentically within the training group, and to bring their unique wisdom as well as their full humanness to bear in learning to teach MBSR.
This 7-day online intensive training establishes the foundational principles of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program and curriculum. Participants study and experience the ethos, underpinnings, mindfulness practices, and attitudes that are the basis of MBSR. Language, pedagogical methods, and skills for engaging participants will be observed, investigated, and practiced.
This course will be taught by Rebecca Eldridge and Margaret Fletcher, Senior MBSR Teacher Trainers.
