Inside the MBSR Classroom is designed for new MBSR teachers who have completed Fundamentals in Teaching MBSR and taught a 10-week MBSR course while under mentorship. During this training, you will gather weekly with other new teachers and a senior MBSR teacher trainer to explore the themes, intentions, and protocols for each of the 10 sessions of an MBSR course: orientation, 8 classes, and an All Day class. Process-oriented topics will be explored, such as how and when to utilize dyad, small, and large group discussion, and topics of a more personal nature will also be considered, such as how to meet your own fear, anxiety, and arising insights while teaching. There will be time, space, and care devoted to addressing questions that have arisen from your own experience of teaching MBSR. Video clips of experienced teachers will be examined to enhance understanding of the MBSR curriculum, as well as to support a deepening, ongoing exploration of the inextricable connection between how you show up in your own life and in the classroom as a teacher of MBSR.
This course will be taught by either Rebecca Eldridge or Margaret Fletcher, Senior MBSR Teacher Trainers.
