MBSR Foundations Training Recognition
We use the MBSR teacher training curriculum developed by the Mindfulness Center at Brown University, for which we have a collaborative licensing agreement.
This 10-Week Online MBSR Foundations Training is organized by our Centre For Mindfulness Canada, in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The successful completion of this MBSR Foundations Training is fully recognized and acknowledged by the Mindfulness Center, School of Public Health, at Brown University.
The diagram on the left is taken from the Mindfulness Centre at Brown University. It outlines the sequence of requirements under the MBSR Teacher Training Level 1.
After the successful completion of MBSR Foundations, trainees will be able to offer short introductory programs or workshops based on the MBSR curriculum. These offerings will be part of the requirement for MBSR Teacher Advancement Intensive (TAI), which is second step of the formal training for teaching MBSR.
After the completion of all the parts listed under MBSR Teacher Training Level 1 (i.e., column on the left), your name will be listed on the Brown University Mindfulness Center website, in the MBSR Teacher Registry as having completed: “MBSR Teacher – Training Level 1”. The 10-Week Online MBSR Foundations only fulfills one part within the “MBSR Teacher Training Level 1”. These training steps and requirements are set by the Mindfulness Center at Brown University and are subject to change.
Please note, you will not be able to teach the eight-week MBSR program after completing MBSR Foundations alone. You can only begin to teach the eight-week MBSR program after you complete the entire MBSR Teacher Training Level 1, and then can start your MBSR Teacher Training Level 2 (which has group and individual mentorship).
