Event Description

Contemporary mindfulness has developed as a popular treatment option for psychological difficulties because of its secular nature and being a transdiagnostic treatment. More and more, it is becoming clear that the foundational components of mindfulness necessitate inclusion of the cultivation of ethics (sīla) both in program development and the growth of our teaching skills. This course will explore principles of Buddhist teachings essential to cultivating our wisdom and compassion as practitioners and teachers of mindfulness-based programs (MBPs). Using foundational aspects of the Dharma, we will explore the concept of sīla as a process of moral development for both teachers and participants of MBPs. The role of sīla will also be examined as a necessary intentional leaning of MBPs to foster wellbeing and happiness.  A matrix of breath practice, body-mind awareness, and practical ethics will be mapped onto the curriculum of a mindfulness program to see how sīla can emerge through skillfulness in practice. The course is designed with didactic and contemplative periods that cultivate understanding and deepen practice. Note: This course is open to health care professionals interested in deepening their mindfulness skills.  It is not necessary to have taught an MBP but prior exposure or experience is useful.

18 continuing education credits have been approved for psychologists and social workers who attend this program in full. We are not able to offer CEU's for Counselors (NBCC). Please note that we charge a $25 processing fee for CEUs.
