A regular space that is contracted between Supervisor and Supervisee that enables them to reflect together on the Supervisee's Mindfulness practice and explore how it impacts and integrates with their work and life. This process is dedicated to developing and deepening the growth, understanding and effectiveness of the Supervisee's application of Mindfulness, both professionally and in their working life”
On-going mindfulness supervision is an important part of the good practice requirements for teachers of mindfulness-based classes, workshops and courses. It can provide you with an invaluable opportunity to reflect upon and inquire about your mindfulness teaching and practice. This may include 'live' teaching practice and feedback, inquiry around issues arising in your teaching, and/or discussion based on videoed sessions. It may also focus upon your personal mindfulness practice including Mindful Movement and how it impacts on your work. Unlike other experiences of supervision that you may have had, though, what is unique to mindfulness supervision is that the session itself is imbued with mindfulness in terms of practice, embodied presence and compassion.
The sessions are very much a collaborative process. The intention is to create an alliance between you and your supervisor that will foster an open and creative exploration of your personal practice and how it might interweave with your teaching and mindfulness in work. Mindfulness Supervision is complex and we take the role very seriously, both Kathy and Bodhin are trained MBSR Supervisiors with the Centre for Mindfulness Practice and Research CMRP, Bangor University in England.
