Inquiry Intensive is designed for MBSR teachers who have completed Phase 1 of the training pathway (or at least one cycle of mentorship) and want to improve skill and confidence at inquiring with students. Emphasis in this 4-day intensive is on the teacher’s embodied inquiry as a vehicle for helping students safely and respectfully explore and inquire into their own experiences, beyond the story of those experiences. We will look at the impact that teacher intention can have on students during the inquiry process, and explore challenges to effective inquiry, and ways to meet those challenges. You will practice inquiry with your colleagues, engaging both with individuals and the whole group, as well as engaging in your own self-inquiry, which is the fuel for inquiring with others. You will leave the training able to meet yourself and your students inside the inquiry process with more skill and grace.
This training may also be taken by MBI teachers not in the East Coast Mindfulness training pathway or anyone in a field that utilizes mindful inquiry.
This course will be taught by Rebecca Eldridge and Margaret Fletcher, Senior MBSR Teacher Trainers.
