Q: After the TTR1 course will I be able to teach the 8 week MBSR Stress Reduction course or do we need to take TTR2 as well?

On successful completion of TTR1 you would have the skills and confidence to teach Meditation classes and in some cases depending on both your personal and professional skills, the 8 week MBSR Stress Reduction Course. However we normally advise students to take TTR2 before teaching the MBSR 8 week course due to its complexity.   

During TTR1 and also during a review at the end of the course, we give you feedback and advise where we feel you are as a Teacher, and your areas of development going forward. We also offer mentoring and supervision to support your development.

One big benefit of waiting until after taking TTR2 before teaching the 8 week MBSR Stress Reduction course is that it also gives you what we call "A business in a box" with MBSR lesson plans, MBSR participants handbook and mp3 recordings so you can start your business quickly and professionally. Of course you also receive the graduation certificate demonstrating that you have achieved the required standard and are an accredited MBSR Teacher!

Thank you…

We went through both the content of each of the 8 MBSR sessions and to the competences to work on…


I would definitely recommend the MBSR teacher training at Solterreno. The course was very professionally delivered by both of the trainers. The program of the input sessions was sensibly structured giving the participants just the right amount of knowledge and providing them with lots of…


The mindfulness teacher training at Solterreno exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere is very supportive, created by the caring nature of Bodhin and the retreat team, which in turn leads to a strong connection within the group. The course has a good level of focus on hands-on practice with…
