The Heart & Craft of Inquiry -  A 2 day masterclass

October 8, 9:30 am

A 2-day masterclass for deepening inquiry and dialogue skills in MBSR teaching. 

The Heart & Craft of Inquiry

Conveying course themes through inquiry and dialogue is integral to skilful MBSR teaching. A large amount of class time is reserved for exploring participants’ experiences of the different mindfulness practices of the curriculum. A collective conversation of deep listening, compassionate curiosity and celebration of the beauty of being human together unfolds within and across each class. 

Yet this key competency is also one that many MBSR teachers experience as a source of unease and challenge. Perhaps this is unsurprising as we immerse ourselves in the emergent style of teaching and move into a space of ‘not-knowing’. In this fresh, open space we let go of urges to rescue or give advice as we accompany participants on this journey of mindfulness practice. We may imagine that speaking in inquiry is like dropping a pebble into a pool of water – we do not know how far the ripples will reach.  

This 2-day masterclass programme is offered to teachers of MBSR as support for deepening your learning and confidence in this core teaching competency. We will share the difficult, the delightful and the doubts. How do we meet with the uncomfortable, challenging, or unnerving in the inquiry process? What “unlearning” is needed to allow for meaningful learning to emerge for individuals and the group? Honouring the experiential, dynamic and emergent principles of MBSR teaching, we will explore in community the ‘heart and craft’ of inquiry. We will evolve our embodiment in facilitating group dialogue that is skilful and relational. 

This masterclass draws on our own experiences as well as key sources and leaders in the wider MBSR research and practice field.

Testimonials

I loved how the course was structured. I took TT1 in the intense format of 1 week and TT2 was instead spread over 2 months. I really enjoyed both formats and I felt that TT2 was ideal in this format, because I really had the time to absorb what I learnt in each session and had time to prepare.…

Fantastic course. The structure of each day was fantastic. The days were long but every activity or teaching session felt like it was not rushed, there was spaciousness and yet things didn't often overrun or feel crammed in. Perfect balance. The teachers were absolutely wonderful, grounding,…
