On Taking MBSR: Taking an MBSR class is a pre-requisite for MBSR Foundations. MBSR is an 8-week program that is available four times a year and can be taken in person or live-online. This prerequisite is required before applying for any of our MBSR Foundations programs, in either format: MBSR Foundations 10 Sessions (online or in-person) or MBSR Foundations Residential. Taking MBSR before beginning your training to teach MBSR provides you with the opportunity to experience the class fully as a participant and to have a direct experience of the value of the class. 

As an integral part of the MBSR Foundations program, 10 Sessions, you also attend the related MBSR class. This will be, at least, the second time you will take the class. What transpires in the MBSR class each week becomes an essential part of the discussions in the Foundations program, in terms of personal practice, group dynamics and teacher choice points. You participate in the MBSR program as both a participant and an observer as a means of developing comprehension of the MBSR curriculum, teaching competencies and  the underpinnings of the program. 

As an integral part of the MBSR Foundations Residential program, you also attend the five-day Framework for Mindful Living program. What transpires in the Framework program becomes an essential part of the discussions in the Foundations seminar, in terms of personal practice, group dynamics and teacher choice points. You participate in the Framework for Mindful Living program as both a participant and an observer as a means of developing comprehension of the MBSR curriculum, teaching competencies and  the underpinnings of the program
