The Mindfulness Based Living Course (MBLC) is a weekly Mindfulness course based on the Mindfulness Association’s Mindfulness Training. It is an eight-week course consisting of eight classes, which are typically two hours long, preceded by an introductory class before the eight week course begins and concluded by follow up class after the eight week course ends. A day of Mindfulness practice is also typically included between weeks 6 and 7.
The weekly themes are:
Introductory Session – What is Mindfulness and Why Practice It?
Week 1 – Start Where We Are
Week 2 – The Body as a Place to Stay Present
Week 3 – Introducing Mindfulness Support
Week 4 – Working with Distraction
Week 5 – Exploring the Undercurrent
Week 6 – Attitude of the Observer
Day of Practice
Week 7 – Self-acceptance
Week 8 – A Mindfulness Based Life
Follow Up – The Rest of Your Life
We provide a comprehensive teacher training pathway for those who wish to train to deliver the MBLC.
