The MBSR Teacher Training journey requires a development process of trainees over time by completing not only the formal training programs and both individual and group mentoring, but also an ongoing commitment to inner work and the self-discovery. This journey is anchored in the trainees commitment to their personal mindfulness meditation practices, process, and ethics.
The prerequisites to start your MBSR Teacher Training Path involve:
Successful completion of a live (online or in-person) 8-week MBSR program (including eight, 2.5 hour classes, an all-day class, and daily home practice)
Consistent daily meditation practice (two years preferred)
Consistent body awareness movement, preferably yoga (two years preferred)
Participation in a 5-7 day silent (live online or in-person), teacher-led mindfulness retreat within the last three years. If you would like a list of possible retreat locations that could meet this requirement, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This info session will be facilitated by Dr. Kasim Al-Mashat. He is a Registered Psychologist and University of Massachusetts (UMass) Center For Mindfulness (CFM) Certified MBSR Teacher and Trainer. He is the founder of Center For Mindfulness Canada.
Kasim has also completed a six-month meditation retreat in silence in Southeast Asia and presented a TEDx about mindfulness.
To maintain the highest standards of excellence and fidelity, the trainings offered through our Center For Mindfulness Canada (CFMC) follows the same curricula and training process developed at UMass Medical School, which was further developed by Brown University and used by the Global Mindfulness Collaborative (GMC). Both our Centre and the Mindfulness Center at Brown University (MC@B) are members of the GMC. Learn more about this Training Path.
