‌Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): Updates and Current Directions 

Dates: Friday 1st November 2019

Venue: Washington Singer, Room 105, University of Exeter

Intensive training information


This day long intensive will investigate the origins, intentions, curriculum and teaching process of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). It is intended for those who have taken a mindfulness-based teacher training and would like to deepen and refresh their connection to the specifics of MBSR.


The process will support participants to reconnect to the roots of all mindfulness-based developments, and will involve dialogue on the place of the MBSR programme now in the context of other curriculum choices.


We will connect to the responsivity and flexibility of the MBSR teaching process: time will be given to exploring how as teachers we can adapt our teaching style and practice guidance to the context and group we are connecting with in this moment.


The training will involve some didactic elements, experiential engagement with aspects of MBSR curriculum, and group dialogue and inquiry.
