Course Description

The MBSR Teacher Advancement Intensive (TAI) offers MBSR teacher-trainees opportunities to strengthen teaching skills, deepen personal practice, and investigate the nature and complexity of stress as it is experienced in our lives as well as the relationship of mindfulness to cultivate resilience. This is done in the context of a learning and practicing community, through self-reflection, dialogue, and experiential teaching activities. Due to the nature of the online format, there may be some between-session assignments to complete prior to each weekend.

The MBSR Teacher Advancement Intensive fulfills the second-level formal program at the Mindfulness Center at Brown University’s teacher training pathway to becoming certified as an MBSR Teacher.

Course Outline

Except for the Opening Session which begins in the evening, 6-9 pm, ET, all sessions run for full days: 7:15 am, ET - 7:00 pm, ET.
 
SAMPLE Full Day  Schedule 
Opening Practice Session 7:15 am, ET - 8:30 am, ET 
Meal Pause 8:30 am, ET - 9:30 am, ET
AM Learning Session 9:30 am, ET - 12:30 pm, ET
Midday Pause 12:30 pm, ET - 2:30 pm, ET
PM Learning Session 2:30 pm, ET - 7:00 pm, ET  (includes 30-minute tea/walk) 
(NOTE: This is a typical Eastern Time Zone schedule. However, occasionally a training runs that features the Pacific Time Zone, which moves the training later in the day, ending at 9:15 pm ET).                                           
 
The schedule is full, and also, there is time during meal breaks to walk, rest, or journal, and prepare for the upcoming session. Throughout the training we will encourage you to replenish yourself.
 
Note: Some evenings may end slightly shorter in order for you to have time to prepare for the next day's activities; this is calculated as needed.
