6-Week MBCT Experiential

Brenda Bentley, certified mindfulness teacher and therapist will be delivering the Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) in a 6-week experiential structured format in Orlando, Florida beginning in January 2015.

About the course:

This course offers participants an opportunity to explore the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy programme in a 6-week format.

Please note that this course does not equip participants to teach the MBCT programme, but will help to establish or deepen a personal meditation practice, which forms a necessary foundation for training to become an instructor (UK Network for Mindfulness-Based Teacher Trainers, Good Practice Guidelines).

The course follows the standard MBCT curriculum with added insights and exercises borrowed from Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). MBCT was developed for depression out of Oxford University but this course has been modified for a general audience who would like to learn how to change their relationship to their thoughts and learn to manage their emotions in a mindful way. The teachings are secular and anyone from any belief or faith can benefit from learning the principles and how to integrate mindfulness into their lives.

The course is delivered in a engaging format which includes theoretical  presentation and foundational guided meditations. Although Mindfulness has a rich history in Buddhism, this course of MBCT is secular and is suitable for everyone. The course includes all materials including 50+ page handbook, guided meditation MP3s, presentation notes and other resources.

Who is this course for?

The course is open to anyone who is interested in learning MBCT for personal development or those with some familiarity with cognitive therapy for depression who would like to explore the possibility of integrating this approach in their practice.

The core aspect of the course is to teach people to principles of mindfulness and how they can integrate both a formal and informal practices into their daily lives.
