MBSR Intensive Practice and Teaching (IPT) is the second step in the Global Mindfulness Collaborative (GMC) MBSR Teacher Training pathway.

MBSR IPT provides a deeper dive into the MBSR curriculum’s form and essence and greater clarity to its intention, content, and flow. True to its name, this training is an intensive immersion in MBSR that strengthens teaching skills and personal practice. As a trainee, you will expand your experiential and cognitive understanding of MBSR through practice teaching, receiving feedback from peers and trainers, study and self-reflection, mindfulness practice, and the support of the learning community. The IPT aims explicitly to develop teaching skills as well as the embodied presence and qualities of heart that support freedom from suffering for ourselves and those we serve. 

Prerequisites for MBSR IPT
  • Previous participation in MBSR Essentials or its equivalent
  • Have led a minimum of three introductory mindfulness programs
  • Complete a minimum of two 5-7-day residential, teacher-led silent meditation retreats
  • A minimum of two years of personal meditation practice
