As with all mindfulness training, this module is practical and based on direct, lived experience. Mindfulness training irrespective of level of training, is always premised upon the standard 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) programme or similar. The module takes students through the MBSR programme and provides additional inputs based on classical philosophy and texts. Students benefit from the MBSR programme while also delving more deeply into classical teachings. Because the course spans 4-6 months, the cultivation of practice encouraged through regular email contact and support adds significant value.
While there is no formal assessment on this course, participants are required to undertake a daily 45’ practice as part of the mindfulness community.
