About us: Mission Statement

We are a community of practicing MBSR teachers committed to sharing the benefits of MBSR with the general public as well as with a variety of specific populations. 

We provide mutual encouragement and feedback to each other as well as a forum for the continuous learning of our craft. 

Together we form a network of support and continuous growth as a group of diverse teachers, including the mentoring of new teachers and the development of innovative curricula grounded in the 8 week MBSR cycle as pioneered by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the Center for Mindfulness. 

We are bonded by a common dedication to daily mindfulness meditation practices, as well as a shared quest for authenticity in our lives and in our teaching. 


How do we do this?
  • Monthly gatherings by invitation
  • In depth study of the various segments of the 8 week MBSR cycle
  • Regular workshops on specific topics with teachers from our Collaborative as well as guest teachers
  • A shared resource on-line to post updated materials about MBSR and available classes in Greater New York (www.mindfulnessmeditationnyc.com)
  • An ever-growing network of friendships and informal support
