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.Read More
