Here is an impression by Simona Ondrejkova who participated in the preparatory meeting on 28 March and offered some of her professional insights on ‘Solving the Crisis In Mindfulness Teaching’
The Intention of the Dialogue on the 4th of April
To contribute to alleviating the devastating growth of mental health issues, weariness of life and loss of meaning, by closing the gap between the need for mindfulness and the demand for MBP-transmission of the practice.
Recently eamba Member Associations have reported that many of their members have experienced a sharp decline in registrations for mindfulness teaching and MBP-instructor training. Together we engage towards understanding developments and separating truths from anxieties and projections.
The dialogue will focus on the lessons that can be learned from the current developments.
You can prepare by organising your own observations in order to share them with Jon and the eamba community, as well as your creations: what worked – what not.
The format of the meeting is to engage in an organic way to allow for all of us participating to experience spaciousness and to feel encouraged to find our own clarity and solutions.
We are grateful to Jon Kabat-Zinn for joining us in this exploration.
Understanding is the basis for the creation of what is needed with regard to mindfulness teaching and MBP-instructor training.
