Practicum in MBSR - curriculum training

Live online  $495 inc GST

Who is this for?

This practicum is for those who have completed their MTI Level I Training Intensive as well as the Practice Dyads.


The intention of the Practicum is to give you an opportunity to familiarise yourself with the curriculum elements, and rationale of the unfolding practice and inquiry and how this is informed by the underpinnings of mindfulness meditation practice and theory (science and Buddhist psychology), prior to beginning teaching and supervision.  We hope this will prepare you for your first round of teaching so that you are more grounded, knowledgeable and easeful as you engage with your participants.  (You do not need to be teaching a round of classes while you attend the Practicum.)


 The Practicum has three main elements:

  • Viewing a weekly MBSR class, over the eight weeks - Timothea Goddard's 2018 classes (2.5 hours a week)
  • Reading material each week (1 hour or more, variable)
  • Attending a live online seminar for discussion and exploration (1.5 hours a week).  During this seminar, some material will be presented by the teacher and then we will explore your questions that are arising.


For the essential reading we will be drawing on two main texts, CFM Curriculum guide and MTI Detailed Teacher's Notes each week to guide our explorations:

  • Kabat-Zinn J, (1990) Full Catastrophe Living, New York: Delta Books
  • Mulligan B, (2017) The Dharma of Modern Mindfulness, Oakland: New Harbinger Books
  • CFM Curriculum Guide 2017
  • MTI Detailed Teacher's Notes

This will be supported by a few supplementary readings occasionally.

Course Work

The coursework (video and readings) for this practicum will take approximately 6 hours per week, in addition to the 1 ½ hour practicum sessions.
