MBCT Teacher Development – Part 1

A teacher development training course designed to introduce and develop MBCT teaching skills (lead by Dr Collard and assisted by experienced movement teacher Helen Stephenson).

This non-residential* five-day training workshop at our venue in Honor Oak Park, SE23 will facilitate the deepening of your personal mindfulness practice. The main focus will be on developing sound teaching skills in MBCT and skills in inquiry and dialogue. The course is largely interactive and experiential, and you will be required to demonstrate teaching skills in small groups and discuss your experiences with one another, as well as doing meditation homework.

MBCT Teacher Development – Part 2

A teacher development training course designed to introduce and develop MBCT teaching skills (lead by Dr Collard and assisted by experienced movement teacher Helen Stephenson).

This non-residential* five-day training workshop at our venue in Honor Oak Park, SE23 is designed to respond to the growing need for practicing mindfulness-based teachers to take their development and learning process deeper. Participants will therefore have developed their teaching practice to the point of being able to explore ways to refine their existing skills, further develop understanding of the teaching of MBCT and its underpinning themes drawn from the different worlds of science and dharma. They will also delve into the ‘person of the teacher’ – the way in which each of us relates to ourselves, the individuals, the group and the teaching process itself.

Note on Teacher Development – Part 3

In order to complete Teacher Development Training Part 3, you must complete 3 of the modular courses offered through Enter Mindfulness, though you may choose any combination of courses to do this.

 


MBCT Introduction for Stressreduction (9-Part)

This course offers those with an interest in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy an opportunity to explore the Eight Step MBCT programme developed by Williams, Segal and Teasdale within a 5-day format at our venue in Honor Oak Park, SE23. Each day covers two classes of the MBCT programme, with meditations to practice at home between sessions (approx. 40 minutes daily). The course includes a full day of guided silent meditation on Day 5.

The intention of this course is to provide participants with an experiential understanding of MBCT . In each session, participants will encounter a number of meditation practices and cognitive-behavioural exercises to explore on a direct, personal level. The course is accompanied by a handout and CDs to support the home-practice.

This course does not equip participants to teach the MBCT programme, but will help to establish or deepen a personal meditation practice, which forms a necessary foundation for training at a later state to become a trainer in Mindfulness-based Approaches (UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers, Good Practice Guidelines).

Each course day begins at 11 am and ends at 5 pm.

Live Your Life

A course designed for individuals who wish to explore the possibility of change and freshness in how they are presently living their live.

Have you ever wondered about what your life is really about? What keeps you getting up in the morning (or not)? Have you identified what your purpose, your roles, your joys may be? Sometimes in order to do the things we love, we have to do other, less satisfying things in order to support our calling. Being flexible and open-minded is one of the keys.

This one-to-one course of 7 coaching sessions includes interventions and practices to help you stay focused, resilient, mindful, compassionate, flexible, curious and creative. The sessions can be arranged to fit your time frame and can be taken in person (London or Vienna) or via Skype. The goal is to learn and really ‘Live Your Life’. Time and venue are flexible.

Please email Dr Collard directly at stressminus@yahoo.com for further inquiries (subject line: Live Your Life).[/read]

 


CBT Elements in MBCT (Teacher Development – Part 3 Module)

The primary focus of this course will be on how to utilise the CBT skills that are developed as part of the Eight-Week MBCT Programme.

While this course is designed for those wishing to further their teacher development, it can be just as useful for any mindfulness teacher who simply wants to increase their skills as part of their CPD (i.e. this is a module of TD3, but you can take part without intending to complete TD3).

This course will take place at our London venue in Honor Oak Park, SE23.

The course begins at 10.30 am and ends at 5.30 pm.

Price: £140

Please email us at contact@entermindfulness.com to enquire further or to book your place (subject line: CBT and Mindful Movement).

NOTE: All participants are required to provide evidence of their mindfulness teaching experience in order to take part on this course.[/read]

 


Poetry, Stories and Mindful Communication CPD (Teacher Development – Part 3 Module):

The primary focus of this course is two-fold. Firstly, it will be on how to utilise short stories and poetry to enhance the teaching of the Eight-Week MBCT Programme. Secondly, this course will focus on how to become a more competent MBCT instructor through introducing artistry in communication and group skills. Interpersonal communication is so much part of our everyday life that we are hardly aware of it. Only when something goes wrong do we think about it.

Dr Collard’s personal message:

Have you ever wondered about what your life is really about? What keeps you getting up in the morning (or not)? Have you identified what your purpose, your roles, your joys may be? I recently had a lovely conversation with one of my sons who is in a creative profession and loves it, but also has to do some other activities, maybe less satisfying, in order to support what he really feels called to do. As a mother I am very pleased to see that at least in this respect he follows in my footsteps. Being flexible and open-minded is one of the keys.

I have created a one-to-one course of 7 coaching sessions which include interventions and practices to help you stay focused, resilient, mindful, compassionate, flexible, curious and creative. The sessions can be arranged to fit your time frame and can be taken in person (London or Vienna) or via Skype. The goal is to learn and really ‘LiveYourLife’.

Time and venue are flexible.

7 Coaching Sessions (1.5 hours each)
