Jon Aaron and I will be offering Foundations in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction - the first step in the Mindfulness Center at Brown University's MBSR Teacher Training Pathway. It will be offered online via Zoom.

In this ten week program teacher trainees engage fully in the 8-week MBSR program as participants and as observers. In addition, they engage with other trainees and the instructor in a 3.5 hour seminar exploring the underpinnings, approach, and teacher qualities in which the program is steeped. Full attendance at all sessions is required, excluding emergencies or cancellations for other reasons.

- Previous participation in an 8-week MBSR course
- A minimum of one 5-7-day residential meditation retreat*
- A minimum of two years of personal meditation practice

*Each application will be evaluated on its individual merits.
