These programs are open to adults of any age.
The 8-weeks involves 1 x 3-hour session over 8-consecutive weeks, allowing time between each session to put the new skills and practices into use in your everyday life. On a Saturday morning in between week 5 and 6 there is a 4-hour retreat session of practice.
Each session brings a new theme and thoughtfully builds on the previous one/s. All Adelaide Mindfulness programs are co-facilitated by both a Certifed and a Trained MSC Teacher, this ensures an optimal safe and rich learning environment.
Attendance of either an 8-week or a 5-day intensive MSC program is one of the pre-requisites for MSC teacher training. There have been two MSC teacher training in Australia, one in April 2017 and one in September 2018. Tina was part of the teaching team alongside Chris Germer for both of these teacher trainings. The next MSC teacher training on this side of the globe will be Singapore in February 2020.
Our MSC program fee includes a copy of the new MSC Workbook, written by Kristin Neff and Chris Germer. We also provide herbal teas and refreshments each session.
Please note, the full fee places in our program assist us to offer scholarship places – so heartfelt thanks.
