Learning to teach the curriculum

Learning to teach the curriculum

This master class provides training on how to teach the 8-week Mindfulness course: “Finding Peace in a Frantic World” Programme as it is taught by Brussels Mindfulness. This curriculum is developed from MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) which is based on the best-selling book by Mark Williams and Danny Penman. It provides a practical and accessible introduction to mindfulness with 8 weekly sessions of 60-120 minutes and daily home practices of 10-20 minutes.


Audience for the curriculum "Finding peace in a frantic world"

The curriculum includes practices and exercises for working with stress and increasing wellbeing and resilience. It is suitable for delivering to adults in workplaces, universities, and schools, and to the general public. With its unique mix of didactic teaching, short practices, and deep sharing it is particularly well suited for the busy population in Brussels (and elsewhere) dealing with an abundance of stress, overwhelm, and tight deadlines.

For whom?

This workshop is for fully trained Mindfulness teachers (MBSR, MBCT, or Mindfulness for Life) and for teachers in training. All mindfulness teachers are welcome!

We will be tackling the following aspects:

  • The theoretical background and rationale for the Finding Peace in a Frantic World curriculum

  • New concepts practiced in small groups with trainer feedback
  • How to adapt the curriculum for the workplace
