MBSR Teacher Education & Certification

Oasis Institute

Oasis Institute offers comprehensive, highly-professional training to become a CFM Certified MBSR Teacher, with the opportunity to earn CFM "Qualified Teacher" status after the first two courses (SR-401 and SR-402). With completion of all four courses (SR-401 through SR-404), you are eligible to apply for MBSR Teacher Certification (SR-405).

Effective January 1, 2019MBSR in Mind-Body Medicine will return to its original position as a pre-requisite for MBSR Fundamentals (SR-401) and for entering the Teacher Education (TE) pathway to become an MBSR Certified Teacher.

Between now and December 31, 2018, MBSR in Mind-Body Medicine (DM-100) formerly SR-FLEX, will remain where it is in the Teacher Education (TE) pathway as a requirement that has flexibility in terms of when it can be completed. 

After December 31, 2018, this course will be required prior to entering the pathway and before applying for the MBSR Fundamentals (SR-401) course.
