MBSR in Mind-Body Medicine
Originally conceived and founded by Jon-Kabat Zinn and Saki-Santorelli, this foundational program brings in-depth MBSR training and knowledge to those interested in learning the science and application of mind-body medicine and how to more fully incorporate mindfulness into their lives.
This 7-day program is taught by esteemed and deeply experienced MBSR professionals including Judson Brewer, Florence Meleo-Meyer, and Saki Santorelli. It is a unique opportunity for physicians and other healthcare professionals to train intensively in mindfulness meditation as it is taught at the Center for Mindfulness MBSR Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School based on 38 years of research and teaching of over 24,000 participants.
Important Information for MBSR Teacher Trainees
Effective January 1, 2019, MBSR in Mind-Body Medicine will return to its original position as a pre-requisite for MBSR Fundamentals and for entering the Teacher Education (TE) pathway to become an MBSR Certified Teacher.
Between now and December 31, 2018, MBSR in Mind-Body Medicine (DM-100), formerly SR-FLEX will remain where it is in the TE pathway as a requirement that has flexibility in terms of when it is taken. It is a required course for CFM Teacher Certification, and may be completed at any time prior to starting MBSR Teacher Certification ( SR-405).
After December 31, 2018, MBSR in Mind-Body Medicine (DM-100) will be required prior to entering the pathway and before taking MBSR Fundamentals.
