Level 1B MBCP Teacher Training – Online
Time & Location
About the Event
Level 1B is an opportunity to begin the journey from mindfulness practitioner to mindfulness teacher. There will be weekly online seminars which will include practice leading the meditations offered in MBCP, dialogue and inquiry, and faculty and peer feedback.
This is an opportunity to begin stepping into the role of mindfulness teacher in a supportive and encouraging environment, and all trainees will be expected to do some beginning teaching to their peers. The main focus of this part of the training is developing the skill of guiding mindfulness practices and beginning to learn about art of inquiry.
Trainees will be able to prepare for leading meditation practices by engaging with their fellow students outside of the seminar to practice teaching and support one another’s learning. Home study will also involve background reading, personal practice, and watching additional MBCP video materials.
During the latter weeks of Level 1B, students will be offered an individual session with a an MBCP Faculty member to discuss their development over the Level 1B module and to explore the steps that would be appropriate for them in their teaching journey. Some will be ready to begin to teach in a limited capacity, others may be guided to further training or personal practice before beginning to teach.
