What is the Masterclass about?

This experiential workshop, offered jointly by Oxford and Bangor Mindfulness Centres, is for seasoned MBSR and MBCT instructors and will be a deep dive into the nature of MBIs, their purpose, and the challenges and satisfactions of offering them in different contexts to different groups of people. Through practice and dialogue among ourselves, we will investigate and share our first-person experiences of teaching and examine them and “the curriculum” in light of our understanding of the aims and approaches of Mindfulness-Based Interventions, our motivation to do this work, our relationship with those who enrol as participants in such programmes, and our personal relationship to and experience with mindfulness practice.
