This is an in-depth training retreat over five days exploring each of the stages of the MBLC 8-week course. There is a strong focus on participants getting a ‘hands on’ experience in delivering the course.
This retreat explores the rationales behind the practices and the way they fit together as a whole. It is designed for those who have completed our Teaching Skills course, or for trained Mindfulness teachers of other approaches, such as MBSR and MBCT, who are familiar through practice with the MBLC course curriculum.
Feedback from participants and tutors on this course is given with reference to the domains of the Mindfulness Based Interventions Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI-TAC), which are explored during this retreat.
Live sessions delivered by the participants will be self-assessed, as well as assessed by fellow peers and tutors. In-depth discussions with tutors and guidance are provided before final assessment is made. Participants meeting the advanced beginner level criteria of the MBI-TAC will be awarded a certificate of readiness to teach the MBLC at the end of this retreat.
Successful completion of this retreat provides participants with all they need to begin to deliver the MBLC 8- week course.
