Guiding meditation is an important component of facilitating a Mindfulness-based stress management class. The majority of participants in a foundational MBSR class will be new to meditation. As the facilitator, it will be important for you to demonstrate confidence in guiding meditation, normalize the experience and educate participants about the process. This class will help you to develop and fine tune the skill of guiding meditation and will include topics such as wording, pacing and post-meditation discussion. THIS WILL BE AN EXPERIENTIAL CLASS WITH AN EMPHASIS ON SKILLS PRACTICE.
