With growing numbers of MBSR classes offered worldwide, the CFM Certified MBSR Teacher Search is a way to find those who have been trained and certified by the UMass Center for Mindfulness who may be teaching near you.
What's special about a CFM Certified MBSR Teacher?
MBSR started right here. This is the oldest, largest, continually running MBSR clinic and teacher training organization in the world. The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) Center for Mindfulness (CFM) is committed to providing the gold standard for MBSR teaching. CFM certified MBSR teachers complete rigorous coursework and training, supervised teaching, mentoring and thorough one-on-one review by senior teachers prior to earning the distinction of CFM certification. It's a long and challenging pathway, but the result is the very best in MBSR teachers.
