Facilitating Mindfulness workshop

Pat Rockman MD and Evan Collins MD
presented by a mindful society

Saturday September 14th, 2019, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

University of Toronto Hart House, 7 Hart House Circle, Toronto, ON M5S 3H3 Canada

This day-long workshop will take you through what is involved in facilitating mindfulness to groups in any setting, whether in healthcare, the workplace or education. We will move between experiential and didactic sessions throughout the day as we examine how mindfulness is mapped on to experiential learning. The essential qualities and attitudes of a mindfulness facilitator will be explored as it relates to embodiment and the inquiry process. Establishing participant guidelines and intentions, functions and stages of the group and how the group teaches itself will be covered. Lastly, we will address how to build a container of safety and work within your setting.

Learning Outcomes

• Understand how mindfulness facilitation is informed by experiential learning
• Know the stages of group process
• Learn how to create a group learning environment
• Learn best practices for managing a range of participant experiences
• Know how to investigate experience at an introductory level
