Are you passionate about mindfulness and wish to pass this on to others? Join us in the international MBSR teacher training program.

MBSR teacher-training program 2021/2022

MBSR, as the basis of all mindfulness-based programs, is the core of this teacher training. You learn to teach the original curriculum as developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. During the teacher training you go through the program and learn to guide it step-by-step. All training weekends offer a combination of much practice, reflection and exchange with theory and background.

In this MBSR teacher training program you learn to:

  • teach the original 8-week MBSR program;
  • guide all formal practices (meditation, bodyscan, mindful movement);
  • teach central themes (e.g. recognizing and coping with stress, perception, mindful communication, how to practice)
  • group dynamics, didactics and inquiry
  • create a safe setting where participants can practice, explore and learn;

Between the modules there is time to ‘digest’ the learning process and to practice with peers on practical teaching assignments.
During the training program you teach your own pilot MBSR course under supervision. After completion of the full program you receive a diploma. This teacher training program follows guidelines and standards of the International Mindfulness Integrity Network. It is taught by an international team of senior teacher trainers. The program is in English. Participants are required to have a certain degree of ease in speaking and understanding English. You don’t need to be a native speaker.
