Now accepting applications!
The new 2022-24 cohort of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Teacher Training (MBSR-TT) starts in January 2022.
Mindfulness Northwest MBSR Teacher Training is an immersive, apprentice-style training in how to teach MBSR with skill and confidence. It features hands-on, in-classroom practicing with a high faculty-to-student ratio. Personalized feedback and warm support are the hallmarks of this unique certification program.
The first year consists of practicum-based training alongside senior teachers in a small cohort. In later stages, MBSR-TT becomes a mentorship-based self-paced program that can be completed in a second year or at your own pace over a longer period.
In-person practicums are available to students in the Puget Sound, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia regions. Online practicums make this training accessible worldwide.
This advanced training is designed for those who are already comfortable leading meditation, yoga, or related contemplative disciplines. IF you feel like you need more fundamental training in how to teach mindfulness please see our Mindfulness Teacher Training Program (MTTP), above.
To fulfill the prerequisites for application to MBSR-TT, you have:
– Taken the MBSR course.
– Completed at least one silent, teacher-led meditation retreat of 5 days or longer.
– Established a consistent personal meditation practice.
