.b Mindfulness in Schools Project: Teacher Training

Trainers Ted DesMaisons, Charisse Minerva Spencer, to name a few
4 Intensive Days of Training.
August 4-8, 2018


What is .b ?

.b is a fun, engaging and useful ten-session mindfulness course for young people, adapted from the adult courses Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy. It has been evaluated positively by the University of Cambridge and Oxford Brookes, and can be used in a wide range of contexts and age ranges.

What makes .b distinctive?

.b was carefully crafted by classroom teachers to engage everyone, including the most cynical of student audiences. It is taught with striking visuals, film clips and activities that bring mindfulness to life without losing the expertise and integrity of classic mindfulness teaching.

Who can teach .b?

.b must be taught by teachers who themselves practice mindfulness regularly. An adult 8-week MBSR is a good start, followed by 6 months of developing a minimum daily practice of at least 20 minutes. Then, sign up for the Teach .b Certification Course, which gives the skills, confidence and materials to teach .b effectively to young people. See http://mindfulnessinschools.org/ for more information.

The prerequisites for Teach .b are:

  • An 8 week secular mindfulness course (approved courses are .b Foundations*/MBSR/MBCT/MBLC/ Breathworks).
  • At least 6 months of a minimum of 20 minutes of mindfulness practice per day (such as sitting or body scan practices), starting from the end of the 8 week mindfulness course. Exceptions to the qualification period may be made for applicants who have a long-standing mindfulness practice in other contexts(Vipassana/Shamatha/Insight meditation).
  • Reading (Finding Peace in a Frantic World (Mark Williams) and either Full Catastrophe Living or Wherever You Go, There You Are (Jon Kabat-Zinn).
  • We would also like to encourage applicants to attend regular mindfulness practice days to deepen understanding of mindfulness.
