Inquiry Skills in MBCT

1 Day Workshop

with Andy Phee, and Jo Cromarty
Location Online
Date 14/05/2022
Time 09:00 - 17:00 BST


The inquiry process in MBCT is very important to participants’ learning, but many teachers find inquiry skills the most difficult to learn. This workshop is intended to demystify the inquiry process. We will consider the purposes of inquiry, the importance of the teacher’s embodiment of mindfulness, conceptual underpinnings, and practical inquiry skills. We will also consider challenging situations that can arise during inquiry and ways of responding to them. The atmosphere of this workshop is warm and supportive to encourage exploration and skill development.
