This training prepares the participant for delivering introductory 8-week mindfulness-based
interventions (MBIs) or the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course. It builds on the foundations of Level 1 and further emphasises the grounding principles and practices of the MBSR curriculum.
This training emphasises experiential learning – participants engage in immersed practice as well as hands-on, one-to- one and group teaching. Embodiment, attitudes and skill of the teacher as well as delivery method, language and principles are considered through observation, practice and reflection. Instruction, silence, dialogues, and in-depth training in delivery, with inquiry are at the heart of this programme. As we drop deeper into our own experiences, the collaborative environment offers full support and de-briefing for all participants.
Graduates of Level 2, with the support of their mentors and when they are competent, start to deliver introductory 8-week MBIs which will be closely supported through mentoring and/or supervision.
